3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(from the 5 Liter can, with thanks to Quack-Duck) Hazy, amber colour with a medium-sized and slightly tanned foamy head. Sweet and slightly worty cara-malty aroma with shades of herbal hops far in the background. Sweet and slightly bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Caramel-malty base with light bready and crusty notes; medium-dry sweet-bitter malt-accented finish with a shy but still present herbal hops character. Clean and solid brew. 14.IV.10

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at the brewpub as Märzen. Cloudy dark copper colour. Big stable white head. The flavour is malty and slightly sweet. Does not taste as if it has a higher ABV than other beers, but still nice. 6 3 7 3 16

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
draught at the Brauereiausschank on Hauptstraße in Dresden-Neustadt. Hazy amber-golden colour, large woff-white head. Aroma of honey and caramel. Full-bodied, delicious malt base with lots of honey and caramel. Very slightly fruity before the resiny-citrusy hops blend in. A delicious example of the style.
