Ins Glas ergießt sich ein goldenes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr malzig, würzig, leicht fruchtig. Geschmack malzig fruchtig, getreidig, leichte Bitterkeit.

Maria (10211) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2013
It’s warm golden with a creamy white head. The aroma has notes of hay, grain, fruit and a hint of celluloses. The flavor is light to moderately sweet with notes of sweet hay, grain, fruit, a touch of caramel and the finish is slightly dry with a more clear caramel at the very end. Nice festbier.

Hanuta06 (486) - Washington, USA - APR 29, 2013
Serving: from bottle purchased at Allendörfer. Aroma: lightly malty. Appearance: average-sized, foamy, white, initial head with no lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Hazy, medium-yellow body. Taste: lightly sweet initial flavor and lighty sweet and citrusy finish with short duration. Palate: light body, watery texture and lively carbonation. Overall: Excellent. Great flavor and easy to drink.

Half-litre flip-top bottle (BBD 24 Jan 2013) poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard @ home on 12 Nov 2012. The bottle was one of many different beers picked up at the excellent beer shop called ’Bier und Weinbrand Ecke’ in Wuerselen: a kind of suburb of Aachen. Bright, light amber body with a full head of white foaming bubbles on top: plenty of carbonisation bubbles rising through the body, looked good. The nose isn’t strong: mild notes of sweet molasses, hop fruitiness and traces of honey, the latter only as the beer warms a little in the glass. The taste is semi-malt sweet, again with honey arriving as the beer warmed. This is just about the sweetest Marzen I’ve ever tasted, but I liked it. Might be a bit thin body wise but it is easy to drink and I would have happily had another and another if I’d bought more than one bottle.

Bov (13221) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - NOV 25, 2011
courtesy of fiulijn - pale and bright golden beer under a huge and persistent creamy white head; aroma of pear and slightly rancid milk; medium-bodied and rounded, clean palate; low bitterness, malty and gently fruity finish - dubious

Koelschtrinker (21489) - K?ln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 25, 2011
Der Antrunk ist auf das säuerliche Getriede ausgelegt, das auch im Mittelteil eine große Rolle spielt, da andere Aromen rar sind. Erst sehr spät kommt eine malzige Würze auf, die hell gehalten ist und sich an das Getreide anlehnt. Hier kommt zudem eine grasige Hopfennote auf, endlich entwickelt sich das Bier immerhin etwas. Ein Bier für den sommerlichen Genuss in der Sonne, nicht für den Winter wie angepriesen. 10/9/10/9/9/9

Swing top bottle. Sweet barley malt and hay aroma. Golden yellow color with moderate head. Sweet honey barley malt flavor with very lightly bitter grass finish. Decent festbier.

asheft (3108) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 15, 2010
[bottle--thanks, cgreb!] Aroma of honey and a little hay...some banana came out as the beer warmed. Golden straw under a thin, white sheet. Sweet honey malt flavour with not much hops, but some hay. Balance towards sweet, but not cloying. Light to medium body, moderate carbonation, sweet honey finish.

Clear light to medium yellow orange color with a average to large, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white to white head. Aroma is moderate malty, hay, sweet malt, light to moderate hoppy. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and moderate bitter with a average to long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20090831]
