3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2011 Bottle. Pours clear tawny with a small, fizzy white head, short retention and faint lacing. Aroma is toasted caramel and biscuit malt, light to medium melanoidins, light spicy hops, and a clean lager character. Flavor is malt dominant with light sweetness and tea-like character, light fruity notes, mild hops, and a clean, dry finish. Medium body, light warmth, medium carbonation.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (this beer is not served at Munich’s Oktoberfest !): Amber coloured, small off-white head, quickly vanishing; grainy, slightly malty nose with a nutty touch; faint, sweet malty start, mild bitter flavour, ending in a quite dry, bitter-malty finish with a metallic touch. Drinkable, but really not impressive !

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Crystal clear lager. The color is the very definition of amber. Medium-sized, fizzy, off-white head. I really like this Oktoberfest!
An entire hive of clover honey in the aroma. Lightly perfumey and smokey as well.
Well-balanced, malty brew with notes of caramel and honey with whispers of citrus fruit.
Medium-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Crisp, clean finish.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml bottle (BeerAngel) - stolen off Jarkko at work - thanks!
Rich reddy brown, healthy head. At first a slightly plasticky aroma, but as it warms the malts fill out, and it becomes quite grainy eventually. Pleasant carbonation, refreshing palate. Taste initially a bit metallic. As it warms, again, the softer malts come through and it’s a pleasantly husky graininess that you’re left with. Half a litre disappeared very quickly.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled - St Albans BF - A deep bronze coloured beer. The aroma is typical Marzen with sweet malts although it is a little thin. The taste is clean, malty and fruity. Very easy to drink and well brewed although not wholly satisfying.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(swing top bottle) Clear, amber colour with a mid-sized, slowly lacing, slightly off-white foamy head. Moderately sweet malty, toasted bread aroma with faint hints of herbal hops. Sweet and slightly bitter flavour, medium to light body with a crispy carbonation. Toasted malty taste, bready with light herbal notes, rather dry, moderately bitter and toasty finish with hints of liquorice. Well-balanced and easy-going session-Märzen.
