Clear golden straw color with white head. Aroma of pale malt, straw, grain, and noble hops. Taste is maltier than it would appear to be with bread notes, grain, and slightly spicy hops. Medium body very easy to down a few of these. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ClubGonzo (4130) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 2, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear golden body with a small white head. Nose is grains, pale malts, caramel and hints of nuts and straw. Taste is sweet grainy notes, nuts, caramel, nougat and hints of dry grass and syrup. Medium body, medium to high carbonation. Pretty sweet even for a Märzen, but fair enough and rather drinkable.

sudomorph (660) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 30, 2014
500ml bottle. Pours a clear, golden yellow with a one finger, white head. Aroma has notes of grain, pilsner malt it smells like, and some slight fruityness. Taste is balanced. Grain, traditional German hops, and some pilsner mixed in. Medium body and carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a bit of a dry finish. Overall pretty traditional but that’s what I’d expect.

Moebbels (341) - FINLAND - SEP 30, 2014
A clear yellow body with a fluffy, well-lasting head. Nose has sweet malty, hoppy and herbal aromas. Taste is sweet with a warming spice character and mildly bitter finish. Carbonation is on the lively side and the mouthfeel is quite rich. A nice rich easy-drinking beer.
