2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, thanks pivnizub. Light boozy fruit nose. Dark golden, low carbonation, gig off-white head. Medium to light body, light fruit, a bit herbal hops. Generally underwhelming flavor. Quick finish. Light grainy aftertaste. forgettable.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Golden, huge fluffy stable head; sweet-grainy-dusty nose with a tinge of alcohol; stronger sweetish-alcoholic flavour, medium bodied; moderate sweet-grainy finish with alc and hops in the aftertaste. Not bad, but not really well rounded.......

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled, thanks jeverszeuge! Clear deep golden, small head. Light buttery grassy nose. Rather dry with medium body and a sketchy surpisingly shallow malt character. Salty, grassy finish. Drier than expected and moreleaning towards a streamlined pilsener than a festbier.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(bottle) Clear golden colour with a medium-sized stable foamy white head. Sweetish malty aroma with hay and hops. Moderately sweet flavour, medium body, crispy carbonation. Malty taste with a tinge of honey and subdued hops in the background; medium dry, malty, slightly bitter finish. Okay, but uninspiring pale Festmärzen.
