Half-liter bottle, $2 clearance @ Binny’s. Pours pilsener colored, slightly hazy. Kicks up some bubbles in my shaker glass, but no foam. Smell has some malts, but some fusels, too. Taste is pretty much barley soda with alcohol added. I can drink it, but there’s no character at all. Even having "Morgen" by Ivo Rovic come upon iTunes right now doesn’t help this.

Pours a hazy gold color with a light grassy aroma. Taste is grainy, with hay and malt. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Bottle. Hazy pale gold with a white head. Aroma of mild malt, floral notes, and grass. Taste follows nose. Very mild overall. Goes down smoothly.

tnkw01 (1717) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 27, 2016
Bottle. More like a traditional German Marzen beer. Gold in color with a medium head. Aroma is roasted grains with some hay and straw. Taste is well balanced with a lean more to the malty side.

grimreaperguru (263) - santee, California, USA - JUN 26, 2016
Pours a clear light gold color with a short lived fizzy white head. The aroma was a light almost non existing sent of generic malt. The flavor was just awful with a water down carbonated soda water flavor. The body was thin with a pure funk aftertaste. Overall one of the worst beers I’ve had in a while.

Suttree (6075) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 13, 2016
I believe I’m rating the correct beer. It says "ABK Edel Spezialbier" on the label. Anyway, it’s yellow, with some clingly white foam. Smells sweet, with some hay-like notes. Taste is sweet, toasty and bready. It’s OK.

Doesn’t have the look or normal sweetness of a marzen. The flavor is a little bland. Just okay.

BlackHaddock (6344) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2016
14th May 2016, 500ml bottle in the Californian sun. Golden/bronze pour, clear and bright, on top a swiftly dispensing white head. Not too sure what is special about it, just seemed like a bog standard German Lager based beer to me. Refreshing but apart from a little malty sweetness it had next to no taste or aroma. Liked it though, as I was thirsty.

So the score of this beer doesn’t do justice to the fact that on a sunny day outside I could and would drink copious amounts of this stuff. Pours a clear gold with a thick white head. Aroma is malty sweet. Flavor was malt that turned into a bit of a canned mandarin orange undertone with a slight bitter finish on the back-end with minimal aftertaste. I didn’t find it to be anything terribly special but found it very drinkable. Bottom line, enjoyable.
