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.

Marcius (142) - Geneva, SWITZERLAND - SEP 13, 2013
Amber color (very dark) and high foam with median duration. Caramel and hopped aroma. Balanced flavor (medium roasted malt, hops, alcohol and sweet). An excellent Märzen!!

kapusil (514) - HUNGARY - SEP 1, 2013

arkurzynski (1401) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 25, 2013
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.

alexsdad06 (4540) - Ohio, USA - AUG 25, 2013
Bottle shared by Father in law. Pours a deep amber brown color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor are mainly toasted malt, caramel, light earthy notes and hints of bread. Decent, just not very exciting.

Bamsen78 (2413) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2013
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.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - JUL 20, 2013
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.
