Gurthnar (1882) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - OCT 3, 2014
Tap at Nervosa. Aroma yeasty, light basement, light yellow. Clear golden colour. Moderately stable head. Honeyish maltiness in taste, generous amount of yeast which evokes thoughts of caves and cellars. Drinkable, but no jewel.

Erzengel (2708) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 28, 2013
Thanks to Martin! Golden in the glass, malty nose. The beer starts a bit sweet, slightly malty and a bit sharp in the end. The mainpart is grainy-sharp, a bit unround. The aftertaste is long, grainy-sweet. Slightly bitter. Not my beer! --> 7/8/6/7

6.1% on the label, labeled as Graf Toerring Barthelmarkt Bier. Bottle. Golden blonde. Full bodied, almost. Malty and bready with floral notes and hints of citrus. No specific aroma. Pleasant enough.

oh6gdx (20616) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 26, 2011
Bottled (thanks Timo A!). Deep golden colour, small white head. Aroma is bready malts, some spices and herbs as well as quite grassy and wooden hoppyness. Flavour is rather much the same in a pleasant malty balance. Ends malty and quite floral.

lusikka (6340) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 15, 2011
500 ml bottle. BBE 05.01.2012. Thanks Timo A.
Pours a pale yellow colour with a large, thick, white head. Weak aroma of grainy malts and alcohol. Flavour of grainy malts, alcohol, honey and some herbal notes. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a dry, rough, malty finish. Overall a rough Märzen.
