Incredibly malty and rather sweet. I wouldn’t say this is overly complex, but if you just wish to taste some very good Germanic malt flavors in a pale beer, this is a wonderful pick.

Bottle. Hazy pale gold with a white head. Aroma of mild malt, floral notes, and grass. Taste follows nose. Very mild overall. Goes down smoothly.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. More like a traditional German Marzen beer. Gold in color with a medium head. Aroma is roasted grains with some hay and straw. Taste is well balanced with a lean more to the malty side.

0.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Pours a clear light gold color with a short lived fizzy white head. The aroma was a light almost non existing sent of generic malt. The flavor was just awful with a water down carbonated soda water flavor. The body was thin with a pure funk aftertaste. Overall one of the worst beers I’ve had in a while.

I believe I’m rating the correct beer. It says "ABK Edel Spezialbier" on the label. Anyway, it’s yellow, with some clingly white foam. Smells sweet, with some hay-like notes. Taste is sweet, toasty and bready. It’s OK.

Doesn’t have the look or normal sweetness of a marzen. The flavor is a little bland. Just okay.

14th May 2016, 500ml bottle in the Californian sun. Golden/bronze pour, clear and bright, on top a swiftly dispensing white head. Not too sure what is special about it, just seemed like a bog standard German Lager based beer to me. Refreshing but apart from a little malty sweetness it had next to no taste or aroma. Liked it though, as I was thirsty.

So the score of this beer doesn’t do justice to the fact that on a sunny day outside I could and would drink copious amounts of this stuff. Pours a clear gold with a thick white head. Aroma is malty sweet. Flavor was malt that turned into a bit of a canned mandarin orange undertone with a slight bitter finish on the back-end with minimal aftertaste. I didn’t find it to be anything terribly special but found it very drinkable. Bottom line, enjoyable.
