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.

(Bottle 50 cl) Beautiful amber colour with a nice, creamy head. Sweetish, malty aroma. Decent body with flavours of sweet malt. Discreet bitterness. Brewed by a group of disabled people in an "Integrationsfirma" - they did an excellent job. 170905

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.
