4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
On pour, nice clear golden yellow colour with a pretty decent sized foamy white head, a good looking beer. Some lacing. Can hear the carbonation as it fizzes away, magic!
Aroma: strong smell of the hops, citrus, very malty, sweet malts
Taste: Sweet grainy maltiness at the start.
Back end taste of the hops was nice.
Felt stronger than the 5.6 for some reason…..
A very subtle taste, has a good balance of malts and hops, quite tasty, nothing amazing but boy was it easy to drink…. Perfect balance in flavour, clean, crisp and very refreshing.
A very easy beer to drink, very sessionable, could drink a lot of these easy enough as it was very smooth. Liked this beer a lot.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Clear golden color with white head that dissipates quickly. Bread crust and honey sweetness on the aroma. Taste starts sweet with malt, bread crust and a hint of honey. Gets more balanced towards the finish. Body is medium with crisp carbonation. Overall it’s quite drinkable in spite of the sweetness. One of my least favorite beer styles but I think this is one of the better Märzen beers.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
In eerste instantie mis ik de schuimkraag.
Bier zelf is wat vlak van smaak. Niet echt iets speciaals helaas.
