Hacker-Pschorr Oktoberfest Marzen


I picked up Hacker-Pschorr Oktoberfest Marzen from Cold Storage (RM 19.49) the other day since a large number of Oktoberfest beers are made available of late.

Hacker-Pschorr Oktoberfest Marzen has an alcohol content of 5.8% of volumes which is slightly stronger than most beers in the market. I can't help to start wonder if the Oktoberfest beers are brewed with higher alcohol content on purpose.

Nothing out of the ordinary in the ingredients used to brew this beer. It uses water, barley, hop and hop extract.

The expiry date of the beer is printed on its sticker which I reckon is about 1 year shelf live.

The bottle cap design is rather unique which negate the need for a bottle cap opener. All you need to do is to lift the wired cap holder in way of the bottle neck. I find this design extremely useful as I can pratically enjoy it anywhere and anytime.

It pours to a nice caramel brown with a decent head which dissipate quickly without much lacing. It has nice and sweet German malt taste with a wonderful hop depth. Overall maltiness and sweetness of this brew works so wonderfully together.

It's really a drinkable beer. It's full of complexity but at the same time has a really high level of refreshment.
