3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Swing-top bottle. Rich golden pour, heavy carbonation. Strong sweet malt aroma with some hay/grain. Full-bodied. A very sharp taste, slightly alcoholic tasting but the sting comes from the semi-industrial mouthfeel. Acidic but interesting. Excellent example of a Märzen.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
thanks to fatty for this...
Appears a pale, clear gold with a mild head that quickly fades.
Smell is malty caramel with citrus, apples, orange rinde, and a touch of smoked peat.
Taste is of the same aromas. Nothing really wowing me.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied and mildly sweet.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to fatty. Clear golden body with a pure white head. Aroma is of sweet apple juice, lightly toasted bread, stale malt, tea, and some caramel. Sweet and malty but finishes with a fairly bitter wood stem flavor. This one actually grew on me a little.

(Bottle 50 cl) Pretty, deep golden colour with a fine, small head. Malty with a discreet sweetness and some hops that add more aroma than bitterness. Highly drinkable and pleasant. 190301

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very soft apricot aroma. Bitter flavor: some hops and a hint of apricot. Just a bit alcoholic. Malty, nutty and dusty. Slightly disappointing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(swing top bottle) Amber coloured with a medium sticky white head. Malty nose with hints of straw and nuts. The taste is initially malty with a slight sweet touch of caramel. Medium body, creamy texture with a light bitter hoppy finish. This one is quite good but also not world shaking.
