Bottle [thanks to MoritzF and Papsoe]. Pours a muddy orange with a quite small off-white head. Some lacing. Aroma is a little weak, based on sweet malts - almost like dough. Flavour is equally mild, though well-balanced. A general malty sweetness is mixed with a good dose of caramel with a fairly hoppy end. Not much Festbier in style, but interesting.

(Bottle 50 cl) Courtesy of MoritzF. Slightly hazy, amber golden with an off-white head. Fruity and lightly caramelish nose. Medium body with lightly burned caramel notes, an initial sweetness but ends fairly bitter. An unusual but very interesting beer - and far from your typical Festbier. 290607 rocbyter (2136) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - JUN 30, 2007
Strong caramel aroma. Slightly hazy orange color with a small tan head. Sweet malt taste with a mild yeast finish. creamy palate in the beginning. Ending mildly carbonated. Grovlam (4252) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 30, 2007
Bottle. Average rocky white head that quickly disappeared. Fair lacework. Clear flat looking body with an amber color. Aroma of bread, caramel, grain, nutty and fruity notes as well. Light toasted malty notes giving it a bit of edge. Medium bodied with an average carbonation. Moderated sweet flavor with light bitter notes as well. Lovely sweet and bread like finish that lasted.

Thanks to beer buddy ghawener. Drank it awhile ago, and its hard for me to remember therefore nothing memorable.

Big malt aroma with some spicy hop notes, dry pumpkin, pale fruits and pie crust. The body is a murky brown/orange and holds a diminishing tan head that starts a thumb thick. Sweet malt fore has a little butterscotch candy, sweetbreads, honey brushed dough and buttery sweet potatoes. Very nice and easy drinking. Quake1028 (638) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 18, 2007
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. mlist55 (210) - media, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 25, 2007
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. cking (1175) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - MAY 23, 2007
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. ghawener (1608) - Santa Tecla, EL SALVADOR - MAY 14, 2007
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.
