3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottled) Golden color with a medium head. Sweet-toffeeish aroma with sweetish malt and a hint of honey. Sweet-toffee-malty flavor with a moderate pilsner-hoppy tang. Light to medium-bodied, toffeish palate. Not memorable, but quite ok.

Bottle. Pale gold with nice bubbly white head. Aroma is sweet and fruity with some malt. Nice clean malty flavour with some balancing hops. Frothy mouthfeel. A pleasant beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Golden with a white bubble head. Aromas are sweet grain and Autumn fruit woth caramel, some soap and some sulphur. Flavours are grain and butter with fruit - especially pears. Juicy and addictive. Has some smokiness. Has some "odd" flavours that I found difficult to place - still decent.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2010 Bottled. A light orange/gold coloured lager which pours with no head. The aroma is sweet and malty with a bit of typical butteriness. The taste is also on the sweet malty side but there’s a very pleasant balanced hop taste to it which gives it that edge over most Maerzens. Maybe I’m just in a good mood but I really enjoyed this.

A ggod straight forward Maerzen beer. Nice smooth beer - a clean malty flavor. Probably only available in Germany. Have yet to be disappointed with any Distelhaeuser beer.
