3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Orangy yellow and hazy, with a good German lager aroma. Unlike a lot of "premium lagers", this has a real flavor and body. There’s the traditional German lager flavor but with a more pronounced biscuity maltiness. Good balance of light caramel sweetness and light earthy bitterness. Finishes smooth and creamy with a good lager aftertaste. Amazingly, I got this at Total Wine for 99 cents! Looking forward to this next winter. Happy German Beer Day everyone!

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 0,5 l , new label design. Pours in to a copper, dark orange reddish slightly unclear body with white dense lacing head. Aromas include caramel sweet malts, hay, fruity notes , oranges and berries. Palate is medium thin, crispy, with medium fizzy carbonation and lively mouthfeel. Taste is sweet malts, licorice caramel, with medium weak bitterness and some dryness on the tongue. Finish is thin watery, dry with sweet taste. Overall pretty good Märzen beer. Quite simple in texture but with decent amount of flavors.

The aroma is is malty with mixed grains and hay like hops. The appearance is watered down ginger ale with a thin head. The taste is like the aroma with a mixed grain finish. The palate is average. Overall nothing special about it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Paid $3.99 for a 500ml bottle 5.1% @ Nikki’s Liquors, Providence, R.I. Lager glass shows a golden /orange color with thin soapy head that laces. Nose is sweet grain and caramel malt. Toasted cereal and grain flavors with a creamy texture. Nice balance between bitter and sweet. Really easy to drink. Nothing complex yet I wonder why the ratings aren’t a bit higher. Sometimes it’s hard to find fresh imports, maybe that’s the reason. I enjoyed this brew.

Bottle as Lammsbrau Organic Winter Spezial from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours clear light copper with a frothy off-white head. Aroma is lightly bready with a touch of caramel. Flavor is malty, a little bit yeasty, and some, likely noble, hop. It’s a bit herbal. It’s not really dry, but it does finish bitter.
