TedE (1535) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 4, 2015
500ml bottle(from ALDI) into weizen glass. Faint malt nose. Crystal clear orange/bronze beer with two finger fluffy white head. A few bubbles ascend. Slight zing in the mouth, grainy taste. Finish is short with touches of grain, fruit and a little caramel malt. Easy drinking if unspectacular.

jann3 (423) - Espoo, FINLAND - OCT 2, 2015
Pours clear amber with an off-white head. Aroma is sweetish and malty with notes of caramel and ripe fruits. Taste is malty too with caramel, nuts and a hint of honey. Finishes with moderate bitter notes. A very good Märzen. (0,5 l swing-top bottle, bb 04/16)

floydian1 (1519) - FNQ, Australia, - SEP 28, 2015
Draught @ Bavarian Bier Cafe, Eagle St, Brisbane during their Oktoberfest promotion. It pours clear golden with a good sized frothy white head. Nose and taste is sweet malt grains plus light floral/grassy hops providing a light crisp herbal bitterness. Nice clean medium bodied palate. Eminently sessionable.

jgb9348 (6581) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 10, 2015
Crisp golden and light amber coloured body with hits of copper, all with a nice, four centimetre tall almost white head. Aroma of caramel, light earth, malt, grain and a bit of apricots. Medium-bodied; Strong malty flavour at firs with a definite caramel and grain flavour right behind. Aftertaste shows some light fruit, a bunch of grain and a mild spicey note. Overall, about right for the style with a lot of caramel notes, hints of nuts and earth, but the majority of this flavour comes from the malt. I sampled this 50 cL bottle purchased from Edeka just two blocks north of the Haupbahnhof in Central Munich, Bavaria, Germany on 10-August-2015 for €0,89 for a 50 cL swing-top bottle sampled just a few minutes later here in my hotel room at the Haupbahnhof in Munich, and of course, in the store they had the super neat full two litre bottles - which I couldn’t justify buying for a flight to Cape Town.
