3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale amber colour, clear, small quickly disappearing head, tiny amount of lacing. Aroma was banana with hints of clove. Tasted banana, clove, caramel, finish was grassy, earthy malt. Medium carbonation, smooth, texture was slightly thick but it worked. Was impressed, a good Maerzen.
Aroma: malts, a little bit of honey, and this note characteristic of German lagers.
Appearance: brown; clear; head small, not very pretty, unstable.
Taste: sweet, a little bitter, and a bit sour; a nice balance.
Palate: body medium; carbonation lively; mouth feel slightly astringent and a bit sticky; finish hardly any.
Overall: nice for everyday drinking. Erzengel (9079) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 1, 2014
Rating from 2005. Würzig-malziges Bier. Leicht süßlich, im Abgang angenehm aber deutlich herb. --> 11 kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 4, 2012
The body is gold-yellow. It smells like barley, spicy and yeasty. The taste is yeasty, malty and spicy. In the aftertaste spicy, light hoppy. 10/11/11/10/11/10 kappldav123 (6122) - GERMANY - DEC 5, 2011
Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass golden-copper, small head. Starts strong and spicy, also with some wheaty notes, modest dry. Finish well balanced, spicy, could be a bit more intense. But still a good beer!

Frisch-hopfiger Geruch mit malzigen Einschüben. Antrunk leicht herb. Im Mittelteil malzig und etwas schokoladig anmutend. Feinherber Ausklang.
Gut solides Bier. BeerViking (4947) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 12, 2012 0.5l fliptop bottle from Hol’Ab! in Winsen an der Aller, Germany. Pours light brown with a fine white head, aromas of malt and a little honey and melon, crisp and malty on the tongue, then sweetening in the mid body as honey and bready notes come through. Nicely balanced with a lingering honey-bitter finish. Re-rate: more of a dark gold this year, flavour a little drier, still very nice. oh6gdx (26487) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 6, 2011
