3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at BrewDog Shepherds Bush, clear gold lasting white head best looking beer of the day no doubt. It smells like your typical marzen. Sweetish lager malty with some hop. Good drinkability in the mouth. Some hop character. Some malt sweetness. Like sweet straw. Once you adjust to it it’s pretty good. Hoppy finish. Yes It Won Me Over

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draugh ("Weihenstephaner Festbier")
It’s an oktoberfest/märzen. Golden color, creamy white head. Sweet malty and yeasty nose. Medium-bodied. Malty in the finish, some fruity hops with trefoil and grass. Clean but not very interesting.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: The pour is a slightly cloudy, yellow pour with a short lived white head.
S: The nose is bready and biscuity with a slight spiciness and some lightly floral and citrusy hops.
T: There’s plenty of spicy and sweet orange hop flavor. The malt provides a bit of bready flavor and substance, though the beer is fairly light.
M: The body is quite light on the tongue with a bubbly carbonation.
D: I don’t think Weihenstephaner makes a bad beer, and this one follows that trend. A nice light beer with some pleasant flavor.

Combines the two styles brilliantly, with the aromatic maltiness playing off of the toasty notes.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, 5.8% at KØ07. Bready aroma. Pale yellow colour, very small white head. The flavour is quite thin, some bread. Disappointing.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Aroma of light citrus and bread. Slightly hazy gold color with a white head that ringed and laced. More of a fruit aroma as the glass approaches the lips. Thin to medium bodied with very mild, nigh creamy, carbonation. It’s lightly sweet, a bit fruity, and there’s a very little bitter that builds over time. The finish is more dry than sweet, it’s got some light fruit, and a bit of bitter. Floral hop? Not your typical lager. Very tasty indeed.

Keg (St. Urhos, Helsinki)
Light orange, brief head. Big honey, and light malt aroma. Soft palate, but lively carbonation. Sweet malty body, also honey. Very refreshing and full-flavoured marzen.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled fro Asda, Leamington Spa. Yellow gold with light head. Light malty beer with just the faintest hints of spiciness lingering in the background. There is a citric, lemony foreground, some hops and a gentle carbonation. It’s fine and went well with a Chinese Takeaway.
