3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber colour, fairly large thick head, clear. Aroma was some Munich style malt and also slightly grassy. Tasted Munich malt, cranberry, finish was long and wheaty, on the sweet side but balanced. Body was slightly thick, texture was smooth, moderate carbonation. Overall it was quite understated, didn’t think it was as in your face as other Munich Oktoberfest beers but it went down well.

Clear amber pour with minimal white skim. Aroma is bready malt, as is the flavor with a light sweentess. Very smooth, and quite a nice example of the style. Not my favorite, but it’s up there.

Bottled. Clear, a dark amber colour, and a small, light cream coloured head that soon disappeared. A pilsner-like nose with a touch of caramel sweetness. Flavours are dry, nutty, and savoury, with a clean, crisp pilsner palate.

500ml Swing top bottle poured into a Strassburg glass. Use by March 2016.
This beer reminded me that how a beer tastes can be greatly influenced by what you are eating. This beer was sweet caramel malty goodness when drunk whilst eating a lightly salty rosti. When drunk on it’s own, not nearly as sweet and had a bittersweet aftertaste. Went back to eating rosti in between mouthfuls of marzen and fantastic tasting beer again. So enjoy, but enjoy more with pretzels or crisps etc...
