3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This Marzen pours so crisp & sharp that it’s like it’s in high definition. Toasted malts, drizzled honey, dark bread dough, & herbal tea. Ms Tiki steals a sip & suggests that it kinda tastes like ginger ale minus the ginger & try as I may to erase that image from my mind’s eye I can’t & its vaguely -- but not really but kinda -- true. Love the subtle but intentional finish. Recommended.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2016 ½ liter bottle – decants a shimmering unfiltered hazy amber with orange highlights – a 3 finger off white meringue cap lasts and caps the brew to the finish. Aromas of toasted bread, light cara-sweetness, soft cider-like notes, wet hay hop tones ==gorgeous aroma to this lager. Flavor follow aroma; bready-toasty-light herbal-woody hop tones, hint of sweetness that goes instantly dry as the finish begins –dry but malty finish with a tart hop kiss at the end – Fan-F-in’-tastic!! A great fest marzen from Bavaria’s premier brewery. I stocked up.

Bottle plucked an LCBO just as it arrived fashionably late in the last week of November. Pours a nice clear amber with white head. Nose is fruity malt, grain floral hops. Taste hits you with some fruity esters up front and nice grain malt on the finish. Nice even in November.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @Black Door. Clear amber color. Medium size, beige-yellow head, stays. Sweet, very malty, fruity, perfume in aroma. Sweet, caramel, sugary, malty in taste. Long lasting malts in aftertaste. Perhaps bit too sweet for me, but malts are just perfect in this brew.
