Wahrscheinlich mein Lieblingsbier von Eichbaum. Schöne dunkelbernsteinerne Farbe, hellbeige Schaumkrone. Süßlich an der Nase sowie im Antrunk mit Malz- und Hopfennoten, feines Bittere im Abgang. Gut ausgewogen, nicht zu wässerig.

Thanks to kevnic2008 for that bottle. Looks really good. Beer in the glass deep golden, nice head. Starts malty-spicy, not too strong. More and more wheaty-grasy. Finish milder than exspected. Quite drinkable. Nice!

Marduk (2039) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 3, 2014
500ml can (as "Merry Christmas"). Clear golden color. Medium size, white head, stays. Sour and malty aroma. Sour, malts, rice? and alcohol in taste. Watery texture. Typical low quality macrolager.

500ml can (Maxima, Tallinn)
Super bland aroma. Super bland taste. Pale. Soft palate, a bit gutless. Cleanish - certainly uncontaminated by beer.

Erzengel (1949) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 25, 2013
Dunkelgelb im Glas mit süßlich-neutraler Geruchsnote. Der Antrunk ist mild-herb mit leicht süßlich-würzigem Unterton. Zum Hauptteil kommt diese Würzige Herbe etwas mehr durch, wobei ich sagen muss, dass das Bier mir schon etwas zu herb ist. Die etwas muffige Herbe verdrängt im Hauptteil eigentlich alle anderen Aromen in den Hintergrund. Auch der Nachgeschmack ist von dieser muffigen Herbe dominiert – ein paar säuerliche Züge kommen noch durch, aber sonst nicht viel.
--> herb-muffiges Winterbier. Nichts für mich!
Test vom 7.12.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,7,10,8,12,7 - 8,35

0.5L can. Good strong hop aroma, but metal can smell complain it. Sour, chemical, grassy, strong grain flavors. Almost enjoyable bitter, but something disturbing, maybe metal flavor.

thirstyrabbit (1006) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 14, 2013
Can as "Merry Christmas Beer". Redirecting here where some users describe Winterbier to be "red" or even "brown". Is it really the same? This one has a golden body with a minimal head. Grainy lagery aroma with hints of pizza. Light grainy and caramelly lager taste with nothing distinctive. Märzen my ass - this is a totally sterile and generic malt-driven pale lager with zero character.

heavy (2075) - Split, CROATIA - DEC 27, 2012
10/12 As Merry Christmas beer, from local Tommy store. Directly from a 0.5 l can. Honey malt and somewhat grainy aroma. Flavor was sweet, also both grainy and malty in honey way, fruity and even touched with caramel note. Medium to fuller in body with long, sweet finish. Interesting winter beer with some pleasant sweeter qualities appropriate for this time of year, although could be stronger.
