Where to Dig Up More About This Beer
Paulaner Oktoberfest Marzen

Postmortem Brew Review
Deep golden color.
Dry grainy malt backbone and hops smell
Off-white head that sticks around to the end of the glass.
Stringy lacing.
Light to medium body.  Easy to drink.

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
One last bastion of Oktoberfest hanging out in my cooler. This one is the real deal from Germany, however, I felt it lacked a little bit of character. It was a bit more malty than I would care for in a fest beer, but still a well made brew just the same.

Paulaner has been making beer for a long time, so who am I to judge. I prefer some  of the other German Marzen's to this, but wouldn't turn it down just the same.
