Koelschtrinker (11056) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 14, 2011
Eindeutig eins der besseren Oktoberfestbiere. Süffig ist es natärlich, wie bei Bieren dieser Sorte kaum anders zu erwarten. Eine gut dosierte Herbe schwingt von Anfang bis Ende mit, ein malziger Unterton ist durchaus in einigen Teilen zu erschmecken. Ein wenig fehlt der Pepp jedoch schon, ich vermisse einen ausgereifteres Aroma. Irgendwie fällt mir zu diesem Bier das Wort "kernig" ein. Test vom 20.10.2005, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 6,10,11,10,14,9 - 9,55

imdownthepub (10651) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2009
Bottled, swing top, 500ml from Westholme Stores, Goring on Thames, Oxon. Copper with white head. I really quite enjoyed this marzen, fruity full bodied, soft and pulpy in character, some caramel without getting dry, a little sweetish, but not much in the way of hops. Quite reasonable.

bierkoning (10563) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 3, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2007 Swing top bottle. Bought at De Man van Drank Leiden. One month past best before date. Amber color, dense head. Pear and just a touch of dust in the aroma. Malty but vinous beer. Raisin and hops in the background, even a touch of cinnamon. Butterscotch and some bitterness in the aftertaste. (6 3 6 2 11 = 2.8) A fresh sample bought in Nordhorn was much better. Loads of malt and toffee in the aroma. Medium to full bodied. malty sweet flavor, bready, cake, pear. Grassy hopbitterness in the aftertaste. Lovely well balanced beer.
