2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Big Top Beverage Mart, Roslyn case ($20ish): Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is light, mediocre German hops, bready maltiness, some grain. Taste is much the same. Slightly hoppy. Not remotely close to the level of maltiness you get in American marzens. Not bad.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Herber, leicht würziger Antrunk. Leichte Hopfennoten, die Würzigkeit nimmt ab. Trinkbares Märzen. 10/8/8/8/9/8

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
50cl bottle with a label golden-etched in directly from the 70s. Never a good sign when a 5,4% Märzen has a fumy nose on it like a Heller Bock... Pours a rusty brown vegetable broth, taste is the same metallic Märzen goodness, rounded off with a coarse twist of Hopfenextract. Not vile, but as onedimensional and rough as a Lower Saxonian who is not in on a good Austrian Schmäh-joke. I’ll stick to Wolters Pilsner at the summer barbecue...

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
A - 2 fingers of white frothy head sits on top of a clear golden bronze body. Excellent lacing.
S - Wheat bread, honey, cereal grain, pale malt, some grassy notes.
T - Grain and pale malt start it off. A light honey sweetness blankets the grain. Grassy hops join in and make a very clean finish.
M - Light bodied, high carbonation.
Very distinctly German. A great all around beer. A nice sweetness with a clean finish. Extremely drinkable.

Achtung bitches! This is just nasty! Skunky flavor and all the crappyness you could hope to want in an imported German beer. Avoid!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, amber pour with a fine clingy white head and aromas of grassy hops and nutty malt. Body is dry, with a vegetal note, plus dry herby hops and biscuity malt. Decent enough, though no real depth to it. Tastes a bit cheap, which it was!

Pours a gold color with slight foam head. Nose of some grass, malt. Taste. Is a bit sweeter than expected, with malt, and a touch of lemon and honey. Not very complex. Easy to drink.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours dirty-gold with a tall white head.
Scent is slight GBS (green-bottle-skunk) and bread.
Taste is quite watery, grainy....minimal spicing....bread and caramel.
Generic lager flavours.
Nothing overtly bad, just boring and light.
