2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Going on some distant memory, but I remember I stashed some of this home from my last trip to Germany two summers ago right about this time. I recall I enjoyed the unique flavor profile of this beer, a fresh sweet pale malt with grassy German hops and a slight piney bitterness, pleasant. However I since realized this was something of a "macro-marzen," very watery and not a sophisticated variation of the style. Appearance was an average golden color with lots of carbonation. Decent overall, if I ever found this in the USA I'd try it again.

Shared a 50cl bottle. Pours a clear yellow colour with a small white head. Aroma is malty, slightly hoppy and yeasty. Average carbonation and light body. Taste is watery but more bitter than sweet. Overall, a drinkable beer but nothing remarkable about it.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours clear golden with airy white head. Clear aroma of malt and hops with a note of yeast. Sweetish, malty taste with a very distinct note of cardboard. Occasional hoppy touches. Rather disty and cardboardlike finish. It tastes as if the bottle is off, but it is still a month before the BBD. Far from my favourite Märzen.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Typical märzen which comes quaffy and full bodied. Quite a bit above average with mild aromas and easy drinkability.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Good color and malt but a little too tart and carbonated for a marzen leaves this tasting watery and astringent for this style.
