1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Nice strange bottle. Not the same as the one at the picture. Although the label are the same. Good looking in the glass. Nice amber colour with an off white head. My beer number 2222. But the rest of the story is no good reading. Metallic aroma with some caramel notes. Weird flavour. Taste like metal, corn and caramel malt in a suprise blend. Oktoberfest beer? I will not be any big party if you serve this!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear light brown with fluffy off white foam head, lacing to glass. Aroma is yeast, grain and barley. Taste if caramel with nice bitter aftertaste. Looks a bit watery for a dark beer, but taste is not bad. (Moscow 201209)

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cool looking green 50cl bottle pours a nice clear amber with tall semi big bubbled tan head. The aroma comes across pretty metallic and mineral like with bits of caramel, faint roasted malts and a vague faint fruity ester note. The taste has pleasing caramel malts and malt sweetness rolling slowly into thin ribbons of roasted malts, pilsener like malts and then a lagery sort of yeastiness. Tasty brew all things considered.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle @ Beerfest Asia Singapore. Clear and reddish with stable white head. Aroma of malta is simplistic. Light bodied. Resembles malta and other old man health drinks. Very much a health beer for Armenian grandpa.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This poured a dark red with a good three fingers of reddish tan foam. Aroma has some sweet plumb, but not too much. There is also a good bit of grain. Taste is very heavy on sweet grains, with a good malty backbone. Sweetness is noticeable but not overpowering. Its actually a decent little beer which is pleasant on the palate. I definitely wouldn’t call this a Marzen though.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark amber with a low golden head. Aroma of treacle with earthy undertones. Sweet caramel palate, quite malty really for an underclass import, with soft fruity undertones, but I wouldn’t peg this as a marzen style. Is it even a lager?

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, thanks after4ever! Pours clear warm amber slightly lacy off-white head. Catty aroma. Kinda tough to put this in the Oktoberfest category, more like a malt liquor with caramel and corn in the taste, metal in the finish. The best part of this beer is its looks.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
330. Pours crystal clear dark brown with light, loose gray suds. Big, catty, chemically, dry nose. Light, watery, fizzy body. Chemicals, corn, and catboxon the mid-palate. Light dry finish. Led Zeppelin DVD playiing...don’t get any ideas, slick.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Aroma is rather like old pennies and rotting vegetable matter with a good splash of diacetyl. Flavor is Blauugh! with a capital B! Heavy, fairly dry caramel flavor. This is not good.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 ounce bottle from somewhere in Richmond, VA. A fairly vigorous pour produces a bronze color with a very large head, average head retention and poor lacing. The aroma features dark fruits and
nutty notes. Very sweet taste with nutty notes, grain and dark fruits. Bitter finish. Medium bodied.
