Shared bottle. Hazy straw pour toward copper with off-white head. Nose was earthy Munich malt, nuts, caramel. Earthy flavor, somewhat nutty, caramelly, with a smooth finish. harrisoni (18436) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2017
On tap at the Tea Merchant Canary Wharf. Clear gold lasting white head. Marzen malty aroma. I mean its a pretty authentic pale marzen. Hoppy finish. Yep ok. Doesn’t go anywhere. Fine if a little harsh.

The 3 Johns. Keg. Bright clear gold beer, small white head. Palate is smooth and semi dry, nice fine crispness. Clean and sweetish pale malts. Touch of cream. Mild nutty vibe, German style. Very mild orange citrus and a touch of orange peel. Light finish. Clean and drinkable.
Small bottle from a local liquor store. I’m sorry, I don’t get what the fuss is about. It’s pleasant and drinkable, but not very interesting. Good for style maybe. I guess I don’t appreciate the style. 3.3

Tap pours at Stag & Lion and 12oz bottles at home. Clear golden pour with great foam. Nose is honey, fresh bread. Pretty neutral. Taste is slightly papery, mild salt, fairly dry for style, no alcohol warming, no sticky caramel. It goes in a different direction than what I’m used to for this style, and it probably better off for it. GuideDogSaint (1399) - Xiamen, CHINA - JUN 1, 2016
355ml bottle at Beer Station, Xiamen. Pours hazy orange with a white head. Aroma of malt. Sticky sweetness. Quite enjoyable. TedE (1304) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 25, 2016
355ml bottle into weizen glass. Sweet sweet bready malt nose, hints of butterscotch and vanilla. Slightly hazy amber beer with steady stream of fine bubbles. Slight zing in the mouth, full-bodied. Finish is oily, caramel and alcohol. There is a slight bitterness at the end but doesn’t really balance the cloying alcohol chewiness. S’alright. Michael27 (1883) - Berlin, GERMANY - APR 24, 2016
Aus der Flasche vom Händler des Vertrauens. Goldfarben im Glas mit low carbonisation und schnell verschwindenen Schaum. Was dann bleibt ist eine liebliche Malzigkeit. Sonst nix. Keine Chance gegen die bayrischen Originale. ajnepple (6428) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 6, 2016
On tap at The Mayor of Old Town. Clear golden appearance with a lingering, lacy white head. Aroma of toasted Munich malts and light hops (earthy, spicy, herbal). Similar flavor, smooth and malty with a light to mild hop bitterness. Crisp mouth feel with ample carbonation. An easy drinker overall.
