rosenbergh (8690) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 12, 2013
500 ml bottle. L1. BB 8/13. From bierzwerg.de.
Clear deep golden colour with a big foamy white head. The aroma is very typical for a Märzen. Lot of maltiness, some sweetness, pencil, woody dryness and a hint of fruitiness. The flavour ain’t that bad. It’s very balanced. There’s spices, some caramel sweetness, malt, some mild saltiness and lots of dryness. Even though I don’t usually dig the Märzens this is quite nice. Very balanced indeed. Weak bitterness in the aftertaste.

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - JUN 16, 2013
50cl bottle from somewhere in Salzburg. Pours a crystal clear, pale gold colored body with a finger-width, frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is lightly sweetened, somewhat bready pils malts with a few fruit notes, some grass, and grain. Flavor is similar. Lightly sweetened, somewhat bready and grainy pils malts with a light grassiness throughout and touches of fruit. Finishes dry and somewhat bitter before leaving a medium length aftertaste. Medium-light body and a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent beer. Nothing special, but no off flavors. Not bad.

kappldav123 (5509) - GERMANY - JUN 5, 2013
Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Starts fine malty, with some grasy notes. Fine spicy. Not too dry. Well balanced finish, spicy notes are dominating. Quite drinkable. Nice!

armando629 (2451) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 17, 2013
0,5 l bottle as a gift.
Poured clear golden with a froathy white head that quickly melts down to small lacing one. Aroma of hay and malt, sourish yeasts and grass. Easy bodied beer with lively carbonation, light malts, more yeasts and grass. Nothing really exciting...

chinchill (3119) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 31, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2013 .5l bottle served in an Edelweiss glass in Berchtesgaden [brewery’s hometown]. Crystal clear amber and sparkling with visible carbonation and a towering off-white head that has excellent duration. Has a fine malty and very bready aroma, but still not such as to prepare me for the rich malty flavor. Enough hops to keep sweet and bitter in good balance. A bit floral and herbal. Near medium body. Exceptionally smooth. Perfect carbonation. O: an outstanding beer with the light hop load of a Helles and the rich, malty flavor of a fine brown. Highly recommended!

Bottled. Clear golden amber body with a broad pored white head on its top. Malty nose and aroma with biscuits, dough and moderate grass. Mild spicy and citric finish escorted by some nuts. Good one.

Russo (1902) - Hemhofen, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - SEP 16, 2012
Bottled. Golden color with fluffy and creamy white head. Aroma is Malty, flavor is pretty much the same but a bit more sweet. Ending is refreshing, missed some bitterness.
