2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden body, lightly hazed with tiny pulpy bits, under a fast, white head of dishwater soap suds. Grassy aroma with lemon, berries, taffy. Flavor is rather balanced, with a lightly sweetened malty start moving to middle tart fruitiness and finishing with a mild yet crisp hop bite. Almost mid-bodied, somewhat dry. Not bad, but below average for a Märzen. ~~~~~~~~ Bottle of unknown origin.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle. BB 13.06.09
Pours a clean, lively straw-yellow body with a moderate sized white foam head.
Cereally pilsner malt straightup, touch of honey and biscuit, faintest hint of floral hops.
Reasonably high carbonation, good fullness to the body, slightly clingy malt texture. Husky dryness manifests itself mid-palate.
Quite simple flavour. Pale malts drive the body; biscuit, honey, cereal bran/husk. Slight citrusy hops come through towards the finish, hint of herbs linger with a grainy dryness and low bitter note. Quite clean overall.
A style I don’t come across all too much, but for the most part this seems a bit underdone. Bit too pale, not enough malt richness or complexity for me, more like a slightly stronger Helles than anything.
