4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
½ liter bottle – decants a shimmering deep amber with orange highlights – a 3 finger off white meringue cap lasts and caps the brew to the finish. Aromas of toasted bread, light cara-sweetness, soft cider-like notes, wet hay hop tones ==gorgeous aroma to this lager. Flavor follow aroma; bready-toasty-light herbal-woody hop tones, hint of sweetness that goes instantly dry as the finish begins –dry but malty finish with a tart hop kiss at the end – Fan-F-in’-tastic!! A great fest marzen from Bavaria’s premier brewery. I stocked up.

Bottle plucked an LCBO just as it arrived fashionably late in the last week of November. Pours a nice clear amber with white head. Nose is fruity malt, grain floral hops. Taste hits you with some fruity esters up front and nice grain malt on the finish. Nice even in November.

Tap @Black Door. Clear amber color. Medium size, beige-yellow head, stays. Sweet, very malty, fruity, perfume in aroma. Sweet, caramel, sugary, malty in taste. Long lasting malts in aftertaste. Perhaps bit too sweet for me, but malts are just perfect in this brew.

500 mL bottle from Total Wine, Virginia Beach, VA. Dark orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Lager-like aroma of sweet pale malt and faint floral hops. Taste is somewhat sweet with notes of caramel and graham cracker blended with floral and mildly citrusy hops. Not my favorite style but this is the clear winner in its category.
