3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pretty pale for a märzen. The white head has medium lifetime. The aromas of sweet bready malt and herbal, and slightly floral, noble hops float up to the nose. On the palate, the malt is very present with its light caramel notes and muted sweetness, followed by the hops which are firmly on the aromatic side of the aroma-bitterness scale. The finish is mildly bittersweet and leaves a gentle glow from the alcohol behind. Its full body and medium-soft carbonation makes it a down-to-earth gentle giant.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl Flip-top bottle: BBD 20 Mar 2014, poured into a tumbler on my hotel room pation on 15 Sep 2013. I’d brought this over the Alps with me to Ste Maxime because I knew how expensive beer was in the South of France.
Lovely golden body with a fine white covering for a head.
Slight malt sweetness in both the nose and taste: I really liked this brew.
There was a nice blend of herbal hop notes and caramel/malty molasses which married together very well: soft bodied and far to easy to drink.
I didn’t even notice it was a Marzen when I bought it on the way down in Bad Krozingen, otherwise I might have found room for more.
