Mildly hopped, malzbetontes special beer with a distinct body, which nevertheless surprised by its softness. The grainy original with the powerful and spicy taste beery-a benefit not only for experts.

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.................

shrubber85 (9464) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 3, 2004
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.

leaparsons (9110) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2005
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.

MoritzF (8926) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - AUG 24, 2006
(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.

Quack-Duck (8921) - Down South, GERMANY - MAR 22, 2009
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.

JorisPPattyn (8799) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAR 9, 2007
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.

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.
