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.

(Bottled) I was wasted while rating this , but I got a few notes down , but spilt some of this over my ralph lauren sweater ,im not a clumsy drunk , but as a young entreprenur the stress makes me erratic . I cant drink Oktoberfest style beers without passing a thought to Spaten’s example ....this would have its ass kicked in the second round if boxing with Spaten , but anyway its rich ,grainy, and caramelly , but lacks depth or well thought construction .

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

Tiefgüldenes Bier mit üppig viel Schaum. Wildblütenaroma nach Honig. Durchaus würziger, vollmundiger Geschmack, nussig, toastig. Harzig-herber Abgang. Hat Charakter und ist obendrein angenehm süffig.

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.
