3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location/Date:Bottle on November 7th, 2012.
Appearance: Pours a nice dark caramel clear.
Aroma: Aroma is of nutty malt, with some hay and faint caramel.
Taste: Faint bitterness, faint caramel sweetness more on the end, hay.
Palate:Light body, a little bit of fizz.
Summary: I have been slow to start out November - need to kick it up a notch to hit 1000 total ratings before January 1st. Per usual I mostly defer for this style to the imports from Germany. Not a bad beer for the style and drinkable, but nothing that would make me choose this over others, even within American options.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear dark amber color with beige head. Aroma has caramel, burnt sugar and some dried dates. Taste starts slightly sweet with caramelized sugar and some generic dried fruits. Finish is balanced out by some earthy bitterness. Light body, medium carbonation. Overall it’s a nice beer, not a classic marzen, and I like that.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours from bottle a beautiful copper color with a quickly disappearing head. A sweet malty nose and coffee, toffee, toast, caramel are what I get. A minimal background of hoppiness. A sweet and round palate with a fine finish. The sweetness is not something I am too fond of in a beer, but this is quite enjoyable and I could really pair this with a Polish or German sausage sandwich and feel quite happy indeed.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Piękny bursztynowy kolor z drobnopęcherzykową pianką. Pachnie słodowo owocowo. Czuć też nuty chlebowe. W smaku piwo słodkie, przypomina landrynke. Smakuje również rodzynkow chlebowo. Piwo bardzo przyjemne i bardzo pijalne.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slight/medium aroma of malts, caramel and bread.
Hazy/turbid dark orange/brown beer with a slight/medium
Starts slightly/medium sweet with malts and caramel; ends slightly dry with bread.
This beer is rather intense and balanced, but lacks complexity. Only has malt flavours, which makes it very simple. Not my type of beer at all. At least the appearance is great.
