Shared this one with my friend Gyurke in Wiesbaden. Pours a clear golden yellow color. Aromas of grass, cheerios, and a touch of flowers. Flavor is kinda sweet to start, citrusy finish with some hop notes.

Bottle. Pours a darker yellowish color with a decent head. Aroma is malts and some corn wheat smell. Taste is dry and light bitter hops kick. Very smooth and dry on the palate. Decent beer. Thanks go out to dave89 for this one!

This stuff is really good and refreshing. I get cravings for the aftertaste of dry bitterness. This is a pale/amber color head quickly dissapears. I normally can’t stop with one. I agree it’s not up there with the Lohrer Weissens but it is worth finding and trying.

This beer was something I tried years ago. I do remembering the beer as I kept the bottle. Honestly one of the best fest beers I have had. Very tasty.

A good beer, although not up there with hefeweisens. Dry and malty, although not too much. People I work with brag a little TOO much about this stuff. It’s good, but not THAT good.

Seems like everyone else has it pretty straight on the taste, smell, and look all revealing about the same, sweet, flavorful, and looks great. What I have failed to read is; I have had my share of 1878 at both room temperature as well as chilled and it goes down smooth either way. Which I personnaly have used to rank my beers.If you can drink it warm and still enjoy it, it is a great beer. Granted yes I prefer a nice chilled bottle after a good days work or even yet on a nice hot day picnicing, however, if I do happen to grab a bottle that has been sitting out it still tastes good. Try to say that about our Coors Light or Bud Products. No competition.

Thanks to my world traveling co-worker Bill for this nice brew! Mmmm nose is nice bready with a little hop spice coming through. Looks great in the glass with pale color and nice white foam. Doesn’t disappoint in flavor which is malty and wheaty. While not as strong as the aroma would suggest, a bit of floral and spice is apparent, very subdued. Nice mouthfeel. Overall a rally nice beer. I’m not sure how this fits into the Marzen category, thinking it’s a bit light in color but otherwise okay. A very nice very very drinkable brew. Schlante!
