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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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!
