2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Botle in Berlin.
Pale lager, full malty body. Dry, sourish finish. Nothing to lift this, a rather boring beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2009 Medium very white shiny fine-bubbled head. Yellow body with light carbonation. Milky fruity peppery aroma with sugary notes. Dry-sweetish grassy light malty taste, very harmonic, with caramelly straw notes. Dry peppery grassy spicy aftertaste. Clean, highly drinkable, but somewhat bland. A bit disappointing for Paulaner. (0.5l bottle, Systembolaget, Charlottenberg. Rerated at Hell Hunt, Tallinn, with much the same results.)

Pours light amber with a nice off white head. Aroma is slightly roasty and caramel like. Taste is caramel malt, very smooth and light bodied, but good.

A bit thin tasting, even for a Marzen, and not much in the way of spices. What I did taste was good but it could have been bolder.
