This is a marzen? Really!?! Anyhoo: Grassy hop aroma with a pretty rich dry malt flavor. Well hopped with a slight bitter, dried herbs, aftertaste.

Bottle, pours a hazy golden yellow with minimal amounts of blotchy white suds atop. Looks very inviting. Nose is grassy and slightly sour lemon. Flavor is a gentle sour note.. citrus (lemon and tangerine) and malt undertones. Mouthfeel is medium to medium light. Finely bubbled and highly sessionable, very accommodating to the style though this brew could be argued to venture into the realms of a wit and hefe. Finish is long and sweet, sour, then dry. Highly Underrated @ 2.91/5.0

Bottle. Light hazy lemonade with a medium ring of bubbles. Nose-skunky, cheap beer, bad Grolsch. Taste-malt liquor, butter, lively CO2, wheaty, caramel, very industrial, husk, corn, wheat germ. Ugh.

Pours a cloudy banana yellow with a conservative head. Flavor is typical of many German and Eastern European lagers with skunkiness being at the center of flavor. Quite smooth, pretty good for a lager, but ultimately forgettable. Boring, but not bad. Fair overall.

From BevMo, this poured a cloudy yellow with small white head and light lacing. Nose is malts and light grassy hops. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor is malty with some citrus. No much in the finish.

(500ml bottle, courtesy of ilovedarkbeer) Pours a lightly hazy yellow body with a medium white head. Aroma of lemon, grass, bread yeast, and alfalfa. Flavor of lemon, grass, and biscuit with a slightly metallic finish.

A surprising find in my motherinlaws stock. Clear gold with a short lived white head. Hoppy and malty aroma with a touch of spice in the background. Slight sweet with a touch of citrus in the flavor. Very nice

I was surprised to drink this Christmas Eve. My brother had a nice selection in the beer fridge. Golden Marzen with a few large bubbles floating in the foam. German O-Fest in all its average glory.
