2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pale gold, carbonated as fizzy Pilsener; slim rim for head. Pale malts, faint hops, very grainy nose. Pilsener-malty sweet, like a Belgian "Premium"-pilsener. Way too sweet and too bland. Light, sticky mouthfeel. "Eis" makes one think of Eisbock. But this is even too weak and bland for a decent Märzen.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Strange aroma. Somewhat yeasty and thin. Not very interesting. Boring and metallic.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
The aroma is of a pasta dish and woody. The color is orange and it has a small disappearing head. The flavor is sweet, hoppy, malty, and grainy. Slight alcohol tingling across the tongue.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Small head on a clear dark yellow body. Metallic aroma with a small fruit tone. Flavor is like a sweet pilsner with a little fruit and a bitter hoppy aftertaste. Boring beer!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Golden colour, clear, creamy head. Fruity and pleasantly malty with a minimal hint of paper. Dry grassy bitterish finish. Ordinary but well balanced.

3.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
After trying the superb pils tannen zaffle from this brewery this was a bit dissapointing.Fairly
neutral taste with no one dominant flavour.Quite thin for a beer of this strength.Perhaps I had an off night but I was left feeling that this was a good beer that could have been much better.

Suprised by this brew as the others from this brewery were nice. Light nothing in taste and smell. Golden with a little rocky head. Flat carbonation.

Bad offering from an otherwise decent brewer. Quick evaporating light malt body. There is a sweet that stays on the lips however. Watery and thin. Not sure what they are going for here.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Good example of a Southern German export marzen. Lots of sweet malt in the aroma and taste, deep golden colour and a hoppy finish that manifests itself after youve drained the glass making you wish you had another bottle in the fridge. Nice label.
