$1 bottle at grottos on main. Have to say it was old because the date said 07.05 and it probably month/year. Tastes very sweet as you’d expect but you also get the toatsted malts in there too. Im giving this a better rating than i feel it deserves because it was old .

Flaske 500ml fra Alko Muonio. Drukket i Skibotn 4 Okt 15. Mørk gyldenbrun. Lavt skum som forsvinner raskt. Beskjeden maltaroma. Litt mais. Smaken det samme. Hint av krydder. Litt tørr avslutning.

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...

330 ml bottle bought at The Q-Club in SoHo, Central.

Clear amber copper colour; One-quarter finger head and residual soapy white foam which fades in 10 seconds; Good sticky lacing with very slight carbonation; Sweet aroma of amber malt, with light burnt tire, strong honey, caramel, molasses, light bread, light lemon and thin grass; Mid to light sweet taste of thin amber malt, with notable roastyness, strong grains, molasses, light caramel, light biscuits, thin lemon, moderate bitter hops and grass; Light body. Close to watery palate; Mouth feel is fair amber malt in a paper-thin back ground. No richness whatsoever. Fair roastyness and light caramel. Annoying graininess. Moderate sweetness. Lemon and extract bitterness to round. Hmmm… Hoppiness is light lemon and thin grass in nose, and relatively stronger in taste. Bitterness is from extract, strong but artificial for a lasting, high astringent bitter and sweet finish; Slightly dry after taste. Roasty and strong bitter to mouth.

Comments: I was expecting this one to be good, but the burnt tire smell got off badly, plus the watery body, grainy taste and extract hoppiness makes this a strong but unconvincing Maerzen. Nah!
