This is the German version of the beer, described by Jackson in the 2000 Pocket Beer Book as "much paler (than Oktoberfest-Marzen in the US), golden, albeit still with a creamy aroma and pleasant malt accent."

Marstonlad (654) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 10, 2015
Bottle from Alko, Helsinki. A clear golden color and a little white head. The aroma displays hayish and bready pale maltiness with a some herbs. Taste features some sweetness initially, later becoming drier. Pale maltiness expectedly dominates with hay and cereal on the forefront. Some herbal hoppy notes make a brief late cameo but altogether hoppiness is very low. Maltiness is not as rich as in some other märzens I have had; it does not quite carry into finish. The palate is medium bodied, slick and smooth – decent drinkability. Not bad but a bit mediocre in all respects.

TedE (726) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 10, 2015
500ml bottle into weizen glass. Distant sour nose, a touch of skunk. Clear amber beer with solid white head. Flat mouthfeel with grain to the fore. Finish is even more grain and a little bitterness. Some pepper lingers late on. Nice beer, easy drinking.

Hanoi (710) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2015
Bottle. Nose is malty, very faint hint of smoke. Taste is soft, malts, grass, very little hop note, caramel hints of smoked cheese. Mouthfeel is surprisingly full. This is a prime example of the achingly ordinary beers which bedevil my attempts to get into German beer.

sawbuck (550) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - OCT 4, 2015
Bready malt aroma. Nice orange brown color, clear, thick off-white head. Creamy rich malt up front. Sweet caramel, notes of toffee. Bitterness is crisp and dry. Well balanced finish. Nice.

sonotono (220) - torino, ITALY - OCT 3, 2015
Bionda, dorata chiara, bel cappello di schiuma non troppo duraturo. Odore di cereali, erbaceo. Sapore di cereali, malto, bell’amaro finale, generoso e abbondate.

Draught at Bayern restaurant in Tel Aviv. Clear golden color. Grainy malt aroma, a bit soapy. Taste of grainy malt, a bit metallic, grassy and herbal, moderate bitterness, a bit bland. Light-medium bodied. Kinda OK.
