500 ml bottle. Looks good. Tastes good. Spicy. And it’s organic! A great exception to gross Winter Festbiers and gross organic beers.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium white head, clear amber colour, very sparkling. Honey and prune aroma. Fruity taste and an enjoyably roasty palate.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy dark amber color with a slightish white head. Nose is malty and slightly sweet with a hint of caramel in there. Taste is much the same, and is very light and smooth.

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!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is for the Winter Festbier, which I assume is the same beer.
Light amber color, cracked wheat, toasted malt nose with bit of wininess and chocolate. Mouth is smooth and malty with lots of toasted notes. Nice

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle. Unfiltered orange-brown body. Creamy, steady off-white head. Not so impressive caramel aroma. A real easy going beer...I certainly wouldn’t designated this as a Marzen, maybe just as much a Heller Bock or somewhere between. A touch of vanilla, cream. Unique and tasty.
