2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Good example of marzen, just not my style. It pours clean and finishes crisp, it;s all malt. Better than most American marzen, not as good as the best Germans

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A superior marzen entry with a classic profile that showcases malt. Caramel Malts blend with graham cracker and light hops to draw you into the aroma. Pours a gorgeous brown with a small off-white head. Clean on the palate with a lingering noble hop fade and some residual malt sugar. Starts off malty and hops steadily rise as you swallow. Right up there with the classics.

12oz bottle in a plastic cup. Pours brown with a beige head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, toasted malts, and some floral hops. Flavor a nice blend of these. Average texture. A much better beer of this style than what most German beers are.

Draught. Poured a deep amber color with a fairly small head. It was slightly spicy to me, but very subtly. Decent malty flavors, but I was a bit underwhelmed by it. Meh.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled (thanks K.N.). Amber colour, small beige head. Aroma is caramel and bready malts with some resiny and wooden notes. Flavour is mild toasted malts, caramel and some crystal notes. Pleasant balance, but a bit thin as for the palate.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottle 37,5 cl. Pours a red amber with a small white head and an aroma of malts and dark bread. The taste is pretty sweet, with some notes of malt and caramel. There’s some hoppy bitterness to be tasted somewhere, but this beer is mainly sweet. It’s a drinkable beer, but I don’t really like it.
