3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear amber color. Somewhat subdued grassy aroma. Bold put well balanced bitterness paired with a side note of almost candy like sweetness that reminds me of M&M coating. Crisp and refreshing with a long lasting finish. Nice.

Bottle at home. September, 2011.
Pours clear yellow with an amber hue. Great beige head. Aromas of fresh grassy hops. Light citrus and grapefruit notes. Malt and a light sweetness also noticeable. Good malt centred taste with a grassy bitterness. A fresh breeze amongst Oktoberfest beers.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. The lager styles are sure hard to seperate, but to me this one tastes more lika a pilsener or kellerbier than a märzen. Anyway! I really like this beer. It has got a nice cookie sweetness from the malts, and a crisp orange cest-like bitterness from the hops. Incredible drinkability!

Bottle from Systembolaget, Stockholm, Sweden. Aroma is not very interesting, some bread and yeast with a slight hint of grass. Pours a yellow quite pale colour, with a thick white foam. Taste is slightly bitter with a crisp finish. Well balanced but a bit thin overall. Medium carbonation and a long finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Clear golden colour with a white head. Rather clean aroma with notes of grass and hay. Bitter flavor with notes of grass, herbs, faint fruitiness and only very light malt sweetness. Bitter & dry finish. Not bad, but Märzen?

Clear golden with a small, quite thick and creamy head. Aroma of malt, herbs and grass. The taste was dry and refreshing. This was really a very drinkable beer and a good Oktoberfest/Märzen.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
50 cl bottle from Systembolaget. Clear, golden liquid with medium white head. Aroma of bready malt, floral, noble hops, grass and cereal malt. Nice, feels fresh. Taste is clean and crisp with light sweetness and medium bitterness. Some malty notes and great balance. A real thirst quencher but still tasty and not bland. Light to medium bodied with nice carbonation. One of the better oktoberfestbiers I’ve had, well done!
