Hacker-Pschorr Original Oktoberfest

Beer: Original Oktoberfest
Brewery: Hacker-Pschorr
Style: Oktoberfest/Märzen
ABV: 5.8%


Serving Style: Bottle
Glassware: Stein
Drinking Establishment: Chez Wood
Primary Consumer: Kerensa



Sight: Crystal clear auburn body with a small foamy head.

Smell: The chief aroma is a syrupy caramel malt. As it mellows out, a fresh French toast smell transforms into a more subdued rye bread note.

Flavor: It tastes just as it smells: syrupy and bready. There’s a little alcohol bite at the end, but otherwise it’s malts on parade.

Feel: Thin with moderate carbonation. It has a pretty weak mouthfeel, to be honest.

Concluding Remark:  An authentic Oktoberfest, Hacker-Pschorr has a full malt profile and is well balanced. HP puts out a decent lager, but it’s not the best of the fests.
