12oz bottle on my daughters patio, 21st May 2016. Autumnal orange in colour, large off-white head. Malty molasses rule the nose and flavour of this sweet tasting brew. Decent enough even if it is on the sweet side of things.

An easy drinking example of this style. Nothing crazy or over the top, sweet malt with a hint of hop flavor. Nice beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tapped out deep amber. 18ºSRM.
Nose has some sweet, alcoholic, phenolic aromas. Beery and just happy with the promise of a proper Munic welcome. There is some fresh nut aroma in the nose as well. Very very welcoming.
Mouthfeel is soapy., Palate has ample roasted malt with dark wheat toast, caramel, toasted almonds and hazelnuts. Some raw walnut body, especially in the tail end of the palate. No hops.
The finish is so very very pleasant and very smooth. For an airport tap, this was likely one of my more memorable experiences! Why? It had a full-bodied malty backbone, some clean bitter hops and enough alcohol to round off the entire palate with some faint stone fruit sweetness and fruitiness,
Goes on Favorites List!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap @ Gordon Biersch, Taipei. Bright orange, reasonable head. Mild spicy toffee malt aroma. Big sweet malty flavour. Smooth with boiled sweet aftertaste. Too sweet & sickly for me.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Detroit airport. Caramel malts and sweet cookies. Different from the original German versions which tend to be ligjter. Its much darker, amber brown, and quite strong too. Dry and nutty, but very refreshing. More like a vienna lager than a marzen, but still enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
1/6 on a flight at the Glendale location. Clear copper colour with minimal head. Aroma of caramel, tangy sweetness, grass. Malt forward, light toffee flavors, grassy earthy hops in the background, dry finish. Not bad, on style, but forgettable.
