GoufCustom (1220) - HONG KONG - NOV 20, 2015

500ml flip-top bottle opened with loud “pop” bought at Great Food Hall in Pacific Place, Admiralty.

Golden honeycolour; One and a half finger head with crumpety white foam which last 90 seconds; Good sticky lacing and active carbonation; Quire fragrant and sweet aroma of malt, with strong floral, strong honey, sweet bread, lemon and light grass; Close to medium sweet taste of full malt, with metallic, floral, honey, molasses, bread, lemon, strong bitter hops and strong herbal grass; Mid to light body. Slick and smooth palate; Mouth feel is very good maltyness in a solid background, back with strong flower and good honey sweetness. Light bread and strong lemon to round. Nice and easy!... Hoppiness is floral, strong honey, lemon and grass in nose, and stronger with herbal elements in taste; Bitterness is close to strong for a lasting, high astringent sweet malty finish; Slightly dry after taste. Nice sweet and herbal hoppy to mouth.

Comments: This is a well-made Oktoberfestbier - strong maltyness, smooth body, strong but just right honey sweetness, and surprisingly strong herbal bitterness. Very enjoyable!

BlackHaddock (5193) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2012
Half-litre flip-top bottle (BBD 24 Jan 2013) poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard @ home on 12 Nov 2012. The bottle was one of many different beers picked up at the excellent beer shop called ’Bier und Weinbrand Ecke’ in Wuerselen: a kind of suburb of Aachen. Bright, light amber body with a full head of white foaming bubbles on top: plenty of carbonisation bubbles rising through the body, looked good. The nose isn’t strong: mild notes of sweet molasses, hop fruitiness and traces of honey, the latter only as the beer warms a little in the glass. The taste is semi-malt sweet, again with honey arriving as the beer warmed. This is just about the sweetest Marzen I’ve ever tasted, but I liked it. Might be a bit thin body wise but it is easy to drink and I would have happily had another and another if I’d bought more than one bottle.

Maria (10190) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2013
It’s warm golden with a creamy white head. The aroma has notes of hay, grain, fruit and a hint of celluloses. The flavor is light to moderately sweet with notes of sweet hay, grain, fruit, a touch of caramel and the finish is slightly dry with a more clear caramel at the very end. Nice festbier.

Bottle from Getränke Star, Trier. Pours clear pale golden, very pale for a festbier, white head that dissipates quickly. Nose is subtle but complex, floral, honey, white bread, malty. Taste is nicely sweet with honey notes, followed by pleasant hops. In my opinion, carbonation is a bit weak. All in all a solid and subtle beer.
