2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The beer in the glass is strong golden-yellow, with a fine, creamy white head. It smells delicate hoppy and grainy-sweet. Starts very grainy and pale malty, subtle acidic in the background, slightly hoppy. The middle part is hoppy, grainy, slightly sweet. Goes into a very grainy, malty finish with very slight hop aroma. Very inconspicuous Märzen!

Bottle looks good. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Starts strong, fine spicy, modest sweet. Some woody notes. Finish a bit drier, still strong and wheaty-spicy. Nice!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(bottle) Clear, golden colour with a blond and fluffy foamy head. Moderately sweet and bready malty aroma with present grassy and herbal hoppy notes. Moderately sweet and slightly bitter flavour, medium to light bodied with a moderate carbonation. Slightly bready malty taste with grassy and slightly herbal accents from the beginning, turning into a bitter sweet and bitter slightly grassy hoppy finish. Not overly complex nor exciting and definitely not identical to the toasty Drachenblut. 17.XII.11

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle by 07.06.12. Nose is too-sweet simple malt with some honey accents. Clear golden body with a fizzy beige head. Taste is bittersweet, crisp and cracking, but with a touch of booze showing, faint flora/noble hops and citrus that can’t quite cut to the top. Grains are there behind the light body, but needs a little more masculinity.
