Very smooth and drinkable, an homage to the Bavarian Purity Law of 1516.
As it was forbidden to brew stronger beers during the summer, Marzen was brewed in early March (hence the name!). It would finally be served at the Oktoberfest. Hacker-Pschorr have returned to an age-old recipe for their Oktoberfest beer and recreated this gloriously smooth honey-coloured piece of history from times gone by.
The bright gold Augustiner Edelstoff has understated notes of cut grass, herbs, and sweet malts that are balanced by a moderate bitterness. Its light body and delicate carbonation lead to a smooth mouthfeel that still finds a way of being crisp and lingering with a fantastically clean finish.
