500ml bottle. Pours a very dark amber body with a huge, fluffy light tan head. German beer never fails to impress in the appearance department. It just looks like a beer should. On the nose I get spicy hops, sweet malt notes, biscuit dough, grapefruit, lemon zest and floral notes. Fore is lightly astringent, with the hops and bready notes dominating. Back of the tongue brings more malt sweetness into play, as well as the citrus hints. Palate is creamy and medium bodied. Finish is sweet bread dough and hops, medium length and refreshing. Great beer.

Orangish in appearance, the subtle malting becomes more apparent in aroma and flavor as the beer warms. A bit light-bodied, however, the low roasted malts are pleasant, yet undemanding on the palate.

Rated 9/8/06: This is a great standard for an Oktoberfest. It took a little while for the aroma to open up but once the beer warmed a bit It was rewarding. Malty with a nice sweetness, good to the nose. Pour was standard, medium copper with a nice white head and medium lacing. Very creamy on the palate smooth and clean, unbelievably pleasant mouthfeel. Flavor like the aroma takes a short while to warm up and release all of it’s potential. Slightly aggressive and nicely sweet, there is a good bread quality present. Tops on the list for Marzens that I have encountered so far.

Drank with Ramenen. Bottle: 99% by style? Must be an Oktoberfest/Märzen thing; tastes like malzbier, very sweet, sugary. I guess this is not my type of beer.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2007 I keep looking for a unlikable beer made by this excellent brewery and, fortunaltely for me, I haven’t found it yet. I can’t descibe it better than the commerical description, ’lightly sweet with a malty nose, balanced with floral hops and soft dryness’.. well done.

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a pint glass, amber with a medium beige head. The aroma was light and dominated by malt. The taste was smooth and dominated by roasted malt with a touch of caramel. Very smooth. Nice beer for this style.

Bottle (perfectly delivered by joss): Reddish-amber coloured, hazy, medium-sized off-white head; toasted malt, sweet-malt and some fruitiness in the aroma; light to medium-bodied, solid sweet-bitter flavour; becomes a bit drier towards the end: roasted malt, dried fruit and moderate hop-bitterness in the finish; almost a bit brandy-like and warming aftertaste. A goody, that reminds You of a diluted Doppelbock.....

50 cl bottle, Fargo. Cloudy deep orange colour, Thick frothy head. Equal parts malt, citrus and floral aroma. Sweet smooth malt taste, long finish that lingers at the back of the throat. Very nice.

Poured from a 500ml bottle. Appearence was a slightly cloudy light orange. A nice 2 finger creamy white head upon the pour which slowly faded to a thin layer of head on top. Slight lacing. Smell was of sweet malts with a little doughiness showing itself at the backend. Smells appetizing. A little faint though. Taste was similiar to the smell. Sweet malt mostly and just a little bit of bread at the end as well. Taste is good. Coats the mouth with a medium body.
