3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. The colour is dark red with a tint of copper; the fast dissolving foam is pale beige.
The smell is sweet, malty, a little burned and bitter; some sour notes, crisp bread and a just perceptible touch of tar.
The carbonation is soft and gentle (but not at all staled). The mouthfeel is fresh and balanced.
The taste is somewhat sweet and compound. It is very malty with a burned flavour and a touch of crisp rye bread. It is quite light in taste, but there is a nice balance and a robust body. The rather short aftertaste is also malty and balanced with a good body, a soft bitterness and a sourish touch.
I found this being a fine, sweeter Märzen.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A red-brown beer with a nice off-white head. The aroma is slightly spicy combined with notes of caramel. The flavor is malty with sweet notes of caramel as well as being rather hoppy which lead to an OK bitter end.

Red amber in colour. Sweet toffee aroma. Ohh, I like it already! Has a malty and complex feeling. Intresting burnt taste from the malt. Strong and salty.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very dark amber color. Malty, dry aroma. Malty, sweetish, cinnamon flavor. Bitter finish. Quite light, a bit watery palate, but refreshing. A very nice and not too full-bodied christmas brew - should be very good with food.

I guess I'm a little divide on this beer. Copper color, translusent, moderate head. Here is the part I don't get, the aroma was grass clippings and yea, a little carmel malt. I was sure this was a lager, and an enjoyable lager at that. Not nearly carmelly enought to be a marzen, and if a marzen is what you are looking for I'd steer away from this one. I don't usually care for marzen, but I liked this one, because it wasn't.
