Transferring old data - I used to like it when I lived in Berlin. Strong malty flavor, the end is too watery though.

Have drunk much better märzen in my days. This actually doesnt taste like a Märzen at all. More like an slightly overhopped Pilsener. Or a mishap of a Bavarian Hell. Kinda watery, when its starting to warm up. .. if there is nothing else at hand, and it was strongly cooled (read: frosty), it might work. Aside of that: WAAAY Worse than I expected. Nay! *shudders*

Look; off white head, clear pale straw body. Aroma; leafy hops, berries, fruits, juicy lemon-ish malts. Taste; fruits, straw, leaves, berry-ish malts leading to a fine finish. On palate juicy with good carbonation. Ok body. Overall; good brew. [33cl br btl 5% BB11/2015 B@Spar Laa an der Thaya AUT, shared with Rune]

330ml bottle shared by djoeye. Fair white lacing-head to a clear pale golden body. Modest aroma of pale malts and hay. Flavoured with grass, herbal hops and a touch of cardboard. Soft carbonated. So and so (Tromsø 11.10.2015).

.5L can purchased and consumed in Austria in August 2012 (from notes). A bit more hops than malt in the nose, and quite a bit more hops in tasting. Moderately bitter by the finish, i think this is the locals’ idea of a very hop forward beer. Some metallic taste here too. M: Near medium body with somewhat strong carbonation and a significant harshness on the tongue. O: I guess this is an Austrian macro-brew. Not without some good properties, but substantially inferior to the various Bavarian beers I’ve had the past several days.

Can at home. Aroma of grainy malt, bread, hay, slight hint of fruit. Flavour is moderate sweet with a light to moderate bitter finish. Body is medium. Drinkable but boring, dull aroma.

This is a good beer that very much resembles a German Helles. A good beer that is just enough bitter and has a decent aftertaste.
