3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml in a nice designed bottle, lotto 411, bought at Vinmonopolet Valkendorf in Bergen. Hazy, apricot coloured body. Remaining off-white head. Grassy hops in flavour alongside hints of smoked malts. Quite well blended malt-fruity taste, hints of smoke and bread. Smooth mid-sweet ending. Soft in the mouth. Medium bodied. Interesting (hotel room, 18.09.2012).

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ MaartenRF10. Thanks for sharing Maarten! Hazy amber color, small off-white head that diminishes almost instantly. Aroma is malts, quite sweet and floral. Taste malts, sweetness, a hint of honey, floral, a hint of strawberry (Dutch) "jam". Decent body and carbonation. Highly doubt it’s a good example of the style but the beer is quite decent.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Troebel amber met vlokken, iets teveel gist uitgeschonken. Kleine vuil witte kraag. Beetje rook in de geur. Snaak moutig, caramel, bloemig, behoorlijk zoet maar toch wel ergens verfrissend.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Medicine-like bottle 0,33ltr: Hazy amber colored brew with an nice fruity bitter taste. Hints of caramel and slightly Bambergian smokiness. Classy beer label and typical Italian, lets brew an Oktoberfest, but give it something Italian and something from Bamberg.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice looking bottle, 330 ml, at home. Poured into a tulip glass. ABV 5.5%
Pours a deep red coloured beer, with lots of activity in it and a moslty clear body. Almost two fingers of off-white head, with very good retention, leaving light lacing around the glass.
Aroma of toasted grains, cooked vegetables and even some hints of coffee.
Taste of malts, cooked vegetables with the same notes of coffee and even some mocha, with a nice little bitterness on the aftertaste.
Medium body, average carbonation, quite dry on the palate.
I liked this one quite a bit, pleasantly surprised.

Bottle. Amber color, cloudy. Malt and hints of smoke and licorice in the aroma. Malty soft smoky flavor with hints of licorice. Not perfect, but likeable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From the 11.1 fl oz bottle stamped 11-2013-426. The pour is a hazy brown color with a cream colored head that lingers. I cannot quite define the aroma. It does have malts and butter but there is also this odd sort of cooked vegetables thing going on. Medium body, oily and chewy. The taste is rather odd with its buttery and vegetable character noted in the aroma. Not one of the best Marzens I have had but reasonably drinkable.
