Bügelverschlußflasche(vom Jonas!!!): Moderate honeyish-fruity nose with pale-malt and some hops underneath, golden coloured with a stable and lacy white head; moderate to solid sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied; honey and some hops in the lingering finish. A very nice and moreish brew…

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Quite small whitish head over still orangey metallic-golden beer. Milky-grainy nose; pale malts; sweetish, demure. Little bit of straw. Dry-bitterish, but with a marked almondy flavour, as from bitter almonds - but turns out to be fleeting. Finish is more malty-sweet. Feels at least more carbonated than it looks. Light body, ever so slighly burning MF. Definitely preferring the Bayerische Märzens.

Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Nice flowery-hoppy aroma. Starts strong, fine malty-spicy, not as strong as exspected. More and more wheaty notes. Finish a bit sourish, but still well balanced. Not bad!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle. - Decent, pleasantly hopped Märzen with light-medium moutfeel, somewhat on the dry and watery side of this potential creamy beer type. Good, but not the top of the range taste experience I expected from Alpirsbacher with this marketing.

RB says me 100th Oktoberfest/Märzen. Short swing-top by 02.05.13. Sweet nose, lightly grassy with leafy hops and a strong yeasty component out of the bottle, reminds very much of sticking my head into the primary fermenter and getting a whiff after pulling up a sheaf of CO2 blanket. Rich, bright clear golden body with a rocky bright white head. Taste is malty with a hint of low-lying caramel and really juicy citric hops. Straw and herbal notes pick up for the finish. Light-medium body a little bit stronger than usual, but the booze isn’t a major player. Good modern recipe despite the name.
