3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a dark caramel color with a fluffy off-white head. Wonderful smoky aroma from the rauch malt. Flavor is dominated by the taste of smoke despite it’s being a bit more subtle than the Urbock. Also a slightly sweet flavor. I seem to have detected a slight citrus flavor too. All in all an excellent beer.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Deep, clear amber with decent lasting head. Aroma is artificial smoke, BBQ, coals. Taste is unfortunately also the same as smoke. Beer flavors really don’t come through at all. Gross, god I hate smoked beers.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle. Pours a hazy brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have ample smoked malt, the nose has some meatiness to it but not much in the flavor, caramel, wheat, dry, good but I like the urbock and marzen more.

Naprawde wyśmienite piwo. Dużo wędzonych nut. Wyznacznik stylu. Chociaż możetrochę za mało charakteru pszenicznego.

Aroma defumado, não tanto quanto a "Marzen", porém muito saborosa com um pequeno e suave adocicado bem no final.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Murky light brownish amber with a good sized frothy beige head. Aroma is modestly smoked, campfire, banana, clove. Bigger light to lighter medium body. Well carbonated. A bit of tanginess. Light to moderate earthy bitterness. Nice moderate fruitiness. Smoke doesn’t take over. Nice balance. Great drinkability. Superbly made beer.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
I really like the Aecht Marzen, but not so sure about this. It is one of the least visually attractive beers I’ve had - flat and cloudy brown, like washing up water after scrubbing out burnt pans. But it has that wonderful smoked sausage aroma, like nothing else in the beer world. Taste is a blend of banana cake and smokiness - not bad. But it’s pretty watery and unsubstantial in the mouth. Not a favourite.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Spezifarben, matschfarben im Glas, schaumig. In der Nase rauchig, hefig, weizig, interessante und gute Balance. Am Gaumen hefig, weizig, rauchiger Nachgeschmack, weniger intensiv als das Märzen. Normaler Körper.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Dark ruby with a 2 finger white head. Aroma is campfire and fruit. Taste follows and adds wheat and clove. Thin sticky mouthfeel. Not terrible but also not a combination of flavors I love.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Alla spina. Aroma di frumento, banana, affumicato. Rispetto alla classica marzen, molto meno beverina. L’affumicato apportato alla weizen non mi convince del tutto.
