Paulaner Oktoberfest Märzen
Paulaner Brauerei GmbH & Co. KG
Munich, Germany
Märzen / Oktoberfest
5.8 percent ABV

Paulaner is one of only six Munich breweries allowed to serve beer at the Munich Oktoberfest. The brewery was founded by Minim friars in 1634, and they named it in honor of the patron saint of their own order, Saint Francis of Paola. Monks did the brewing until the early 19th century, after which operations were turned over to a non-religious brewmaster. Characteristic to the style, this 5.8 percent ABV Märzen is amber-hued with a full malt aroma. There's something to be said for a beer that pours with a thick, creamy, foamy froth. The taste offers a decidedly nutty light roast with an emphasis on malt sweetness that's smooth and well balanced with subtle, but noticeable hop flavor. Good accompaniments to this brew include roast pork, roast chicken or spicy dishes.

Price: $9.50 for a six-pack of 11.2 oz. bottles
