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.

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.

Deep golden, decent head. Malty aroma, bready, some toffee, minimal cardboard. Medium body. Well-rounded mouthfeel, nice balance. Bready taste with a toffee note and a fine hop bitterness. Very pleasant.

the aroma is malty and herbal with some shades of grain and hay... the taste is malty with notes of grain, caramel and grasses... sweet and dry aftertaste...

(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 .

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.

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.

This rating is dedicated to Mae Alice Edwards, my beautiful daughter born 27 Feb 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.
