Pours strong golden yellow with high, soapy head. Smell is malty-spicy, slight floral. Starts with very sweet malts, paired with bitterish hops, lots of grain and some caramel. Middle part has some spicy notes, with lots of sweet grains and some musty hops. Goes into a grainy-sweet finish with spicy malts and floral hop notes!

Shaney (2429) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - DEC 10, 2012
#317 Goldgelb mit reichlich Schaum, der schnell verflogen ist. Schön malziges Aroma. Der Antrunk ist vollmundig malzig, wird zunehmend würziger. Im Abgang wird dieses Märzen dann angenehm hopfig-herb, könnte für mich aber noch ne Spur herber sein. Für 6,3% Alk. erstaunlich gut süffig! Gelungenes Festbier! Test vom 11.1.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 11,10,12,12,9,11 - 11,05

MichaelAwesome (2956) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - NOV 24, 2012
Bottle shared with McTapps. Simple one with malt in domination and some alc in. Simple beer with a simple aroma. Drinkable. Nothing more and a disappointment.
