330ml bottle. Clear mid-dark amber. Decent creamy-looking head on top. Smells like any old lager really but a bit more bready. Taste is caramel, bread, old hops, cardboard; sweet but finish is fairly dry. Wanted to like it but it tastes too much of twig water.

Deep amber, thick head, pretty good caramelly malt aroma. Full malty character, toast, caramel, rich deep amber. English märzen? And it’s good?

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Strange that four brewers do not manage to get to a more interesting brew. Tastes like an average Märzen, neither more nor less.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33 cl bottle from Systembolaget. Clear coppery coloured beer with a off-white, small bubbly head. Delicious herbal hoppy aroma has caramel malts. Flavour is on the sweet side with round caramel maltiness and nice bitterness in the end. Very soft and smooth mouthfeel. Only bad thing about this experience was that the bottle wasn’t at least 50 cl.
