Original Munchner Hochzeitsbier Von 1810

500 mL bottle from Hop City Atlanta, GA USA,
The beer pours with an amber hue, but it has a slight chill haze. Nice, simple white head. A little retention but not much lace.
Nose and tastes release a very strong malt base and a creamy mouthfeel. Plenty of light pineapple notes amongst the malt followed by a really quite dry, lightly hopped ending. There are some esters present but it’s not what one would call “fruity”, nevertheless some banana notes around the malty bread notes that dominate.
The dry finish is the thing that really distinguishes this beer from a typical Octoberfest or Marzen. The DEPTH of malt is not quite there for those styles, but having said that there is no need for it to do so!
Tasty, but not a beer that I’m likely to reach for again.
