3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The colour is clear, deep copper red with brown tones. The medium-sized beige foam disappears into a very thin layer.
The smell is somewhat sour with lots of malt. There are some notes of brown sugar and dough.
The carbon dioxide is mild with small bubbles.
The burned, generous is taste is bitter with a little touch of metal. There are notes of almonds, and caramel malt. The aftertaste is dry, bitter and finishes with a slowly descending taste of dark bread.
This is a nice interpretation of the Märtzen concept. As usual, it is a really good beer from the small Nils Oscar’s brewery

Is this beer an Oktoberfest/Märzen style beer?
Imho this is an vienna style beer....
I must admit that I have never been so impressed over a swedish beer, as I was with this one. From the nice dark colour, over the sweet aroma and the flavor of caramel, this beer is just nice.

Dark amber color with medium, cloudy lacy head. Caramel-malty, sweetish, somewhat hoppy aroma. Quite pleasant,malty and sweetish flavor -not very interesting, though. Medium-bodied, slicky-oily palate with medium carbonation. A well-made, balanced and malty dark lager.
