3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(swing top bottle) Hazy orange-amber colour with a stable foamy yellow head. Sweet malty aroma mixed up with strong notes of sourdough and a touch of fruitiness (apricots). Moderately sweet malty taste, yeasty fruity notes, medium body and carbonation, slightly floral hoppy, light bitter finish with some spice in the aftertaste (nuts, herbs, lavender). Very good and unconventional Märzen.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Huge yellow-beige head; amber beer with olive highlights. (Dark German) bread, sourdough, ending sweet-nutty, crème de noix . Quite bitter, autumn leaves, earthy flavours, background is again bready with some sweetness, but sourdough impression is gone. Has some Bock-like aspirations. This is way better than most Märzens. Medium bodied, refreshing. Hops on the aftertaste, again leafy. Extremely good example of the style. Big thanks to joss.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Clear amber colour. Medium head. Malty, honeyish sweet, yet hoppy aroma. Quite balanced taste, initially medium sweet and malty, but moving pretty fast into a delicate floral hoppiness with a lasting hop-bitter finish. One of the best märzens I´ve had. Delicious and balanced.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark amber, tanned foamy head.
Honeyish, nutty and delicate hoppy and spicy aroma.
Medium to light body. Focus on spicy malt (nuttyness), but has a quite elegant hop counterpoint. Dry wooden bitterhop aftertaste.
