3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear amber-orange with a pretty thick eggshell head that settles to a thick ring and leaves some spotty, hanging lace. Nose involves crusty bread, caramel, light citrus, some mustiness, and a metallic twinge. Somewhat sweet, also somewhat bitter. Lighter bodied, active, crisp, with a toasty bitter finish. Not bad, though the nose didn’t exactly thrill me.

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent full gold with white lacing. Smells malty with notes of caramel and light hops. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Decent, but forgettable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber pour. Aroma of slightly nutty, toasted malt with fruity Munich and light noble Hallertau hops. Flavor is a clean, but somewhat sweet Munich malt backbone with light orange notes. Finishes with a light, but present hop finish. Good style example.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours clear amber with stable off-white head. Clear aroma of hops and yeast with notes of malt. Bitter, hoppy onset, giving way to sweetish notes of malt, caramel and fruit. Rather bitter finish with a mild note of paper. A nice Oktoberfest beer if you prefer that style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
50cl bottle from Tengelmann in Munich. Pours a clear, amber-gold colored body with an inch thick, foamy and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma lightly sweetened caramels with touches of bread, a hint of toast, a light sulfur note, and a very light hopping. Flavor is similar. Lightly sweetened and somewhat bready caramels with a light hopping throughout, touches of toast, a very light fruitiness, and a bit of a sulfury note. Finishes clean, lightly sweetened, and very lightly bitter. Medium length aftertaste following a light body and a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent Märzen. Nothing special, but clean and easy drinking.
