Thanks to Allen for this one. The bottle looks simple, but good, the beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Starts hoppy and dry, fresh-flowery. Turns more and more spicy, a little bit sourish. Well balanced intense finish. Drinkable and good beer!

Hearty pale malty body with hints of cookies, biscuits and soft herbal spice; sweet and slightly hop bitter finish with shy herbal and floral notes. A solid Märzen. 02.I.10

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled 33cl. It pours a golden beer with a small, rather quick dimnishing white head. The aroma is nicely biscuity with a hint of chestnut. Slightly metallic and rather malty. Some lemon in the nose too. The taste is extremely nice. Hints of chestnut and hazelnut emerge from a lovely flowery hoppy background. Decently bitter, biscuity and full bodied. The finish is mainly of lemon. A very nice surprise. I wasn’t expecting such a good beer.

Blond lager. Nice malt aroma. A strong body, with malt flavours, well balanced by the bitterness and hop flavours. Very good palate. <a href=’http://home.datacomm.ch/fiulijn/index.html’& of Switzerland
