Pours deep gold with a diminishing white head. Aroma is quite nice, with apple, floral notes, toasty grain - really excellent balance. Taste is quite malty-sweet up front, medium-light body making it easy to have another sip. Light bitterness balances everything out. I thought this beer was really exceptional!

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.

bartlebier (1480) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - NOV 7, 2012
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.

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…

Bottled (thanks Kim!). Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is grassy and herbal with some sweet malts. Flavour is quite strong sweet malts and some slight herbal notes. Also mild grassiness to it. Very smooth and easy to drink.

(bottle) pours a clear golden-yellow colour with a frothy white head. aroma of straw and wet grassy fields, with light hints of walnuts, orange peel and roasted malts. flavour is mostly roasted malts and chestnut honey, with a very faint hint of caramel and bananas and a light herbal-hoppy dry finish. medium-bodied with average carbonation.

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.
