2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled 50cl. 5.7 ABV. It pours a deep golden beer with a lively carbonation. Foamy white head. The nose is of oranges, herbs, grapefruit, vinegar and hay. Rather hoppy. Lots of hay and vinegar in the taste. Medium to full bodied. Some caramel showing up. Bitter finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The bottle looks good, bit it could be a little bit more colorful. The beer is modest spicy, very drinkable, unfortunaltely also a little bit alcoholic. Nevertheless a good beer.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
It’s a golden pilsner with a moderate head and a slightly hoppy/malty aroma and flavour. The bitterness is low, and it’s a boring beer, difficult to write anything about....

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl bottle. Yellow orangey colour with a solid white head. Fruity malty aroma. Medium bodied. Good lacings. Medium sweet & smooth with some hops making it very crisp. Very drinkable leaving me wanting one more sip!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Crystal clear gold, nice pillow head. Nose is crispy hops & lightly toasted malt, slight mineralness. Flavor is the same crisp hop, a thiny hit of light citrus then plenty of lighter caramel notes. Some bread becomes apparent in the finish.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not the best offering from Schwabenbraeu. Just average for a Maerzen. Medium brown color, high carbonation, slightly bitter.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Prominent base malt aroma with obvious noble hops and some notes of celery and peach. Nice orangish gold colour with a fizzy head that quickly dropped, like gingerale, to a thin patch. Flavour is malt and hops like the aroma, but it is cut short with a sort of musty/dusty characteristic. Slight oxidation character of tobacco/raisin/prune, with an enduring resinous hops thingy to finish. Medium body, high carbonation, moderate to high bitterness, and lingering unpleasantness at end.
