3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Beautiful thick foamy white head. Very dense, thick sheets of lace. Crystal clear orange/amber body with lots of carbonation. Dry barley and toastey caramel malts. Some earthy tones stand out of the nuttiness. Very clean palate, mildly effervescent. Sweet and a bit dry on the finish.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not a bad beer. Very straight forward. Nice amber color and it has a small white head. Has a slight sweet aroma. Has a malty flavor and you can taste the hops. It also has quite a bit of carbonation. Over all this is a decent beer that is very refreshing.

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2004 Aroma of corn, sugar, wheat. Very harsh on the mouth, with burnt corn and spices. Mild and thin flavor, a bit watery and a bit skunky.

Reminds me of a Vienna with an off bitter taste. Not unpleasant but not something I will go back to.

Pleasant rich malt flavor I seem to taste paper. I wonder if this just might be a lot better when fresh?

in the old days this was the cream of the crop. They keep dinking with it and its lost some. I guess all big exports do the samething. Anyway how did they think the public would buy a golden marzenbier. Anyway they corrected that so its back, not quite to its old glory, but not as mutilated as Paulaner Salvator, its more of a double marzen than a dunklesbock these days.
