3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Another Bavarian beer (I fear the supply of Bavarian beer will never end), this time from a Bavarian beer testing six-pack. Dark golden in colour with steady head and medium body. Nose of malt. Taste of mild hops, orange peel, thyme, rosmary and low malt. Average Oktoberfest/Märzen but really nice to drink.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml flip-top bottle. Clear amber color. Medium size, thick and firm white head, stays. Dusty, burnt plastic, papery, sourish, grainy and bit glue in aroma. Grainy, husky, glue, touch of paper and sweetish in taste. Slick buttery and grainy aftertaste. Tastes better than smells. But in no means it’s a joy to drink.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap@wk/a. Golden with a slight haze. Golden pilsy malts, some orange fruityness. Really soft lager- like nose. Medium bodied, really smooth silky, easy to digest. Golden malty, some sprucy herby hops. Feels almost plastic, it’s so round. Low carbonation, gets honey syrupy.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2015 Keg (Kuikka, Helsinki)
Simple malty aroma, lagery, but pleasant. Gols, small brief head. Smooth palate, but with crisp carbonation. Sweet and herbal retronasals. Slightly popcorny grain taste. Sweetish, but just as you’d expect from a marzen. Hops build in the finish nicely, slightly fatty, a little nettly. Nice.
Rerate: 500ml bottle (Koht, Tallinn) (5:3:6:3+:11=2.8+)
Maltier, mashier, brannier. Fuller palate. Pretty decent. Lots of grains, some herbal hopping too.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Keg at Kuikka, 20130920) The beer poured amber and clear. Its head was medium sized and almost white. Aroma had grass and mildly malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, hint of molasses, sweetness, grass and bitterness. Aftertaste was malty and bitter. An unbalanced and watery brew.
