3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Golden coloured, slightly hazy, small, almost creamy head; grainy, sweetish, dusty nose with a tinge of resinous hoppiness; sweetish flavour, only traces of bitterness, medium bodied; sweetish - almost fruity finish with some hioppy edges. Not too aromatic, but all in all a chewy, hearty brew.................

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.

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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle) Clear, pale golden colour with a short foamy white head. Slightly dusty and sweet Munich malt aroma with a grainy touch. Moderately sweet flavour, soft malty taste with a rounded hoppy background; medium to light bodied, smooth mouthfeel; medium-dry, malty, light-bitter and slightly hoppy finish. Definitely not a big one but a clean, fresh and easy-going session beer. A well-balanced pale Märzen.

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.

bottle, Danke pivnizub! Clear golden yellow, large white head, which is quite persistent. Spicy malty-herbal nose. Medium-bodied, malty with some hoppy herbal accents and a lingering bitter finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Darker gold beer, with good, dense, just off-white head. Fresh hops, grains, CO² impression. Slightly buttery taste, lots of malts packed in, with a hint at caramel. Slick, oily feel. Is there diacetyl? Certainly not much, anyway. Better than the export, but I prefer the much hoppier Pilsner.

Bottle looks good, the beer in the glass also. Nice head. Starts strong, quite spicy from the beginning, also a bit sourish. Finsih a little bit alcoholic-metallically, but still nicely spicy. Not bad!
