3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Deep orange colour, crystal clear with no head at all. Lovely deep rich maltiness. Munich malt and some decocted malitness are on display. Flavour shows a kiss of floral hops, lingering light breadiness. Not a lot of complexity, but this is all about being easy to drink… something it accomplishes well.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear copper colored body with almost no head formation at all. Smells of sticky, sweet maple and sweet white corn, with a heavily sweet caramel and caramel corn note as well. Some faint cherry wood also shows up at times. Low carbonation, slick and oily, with flavors of semi-sweet maple malt and light plum and cedar. Medium dryness in the finish. Ok to below average.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Color is amber with a thin and quickly vanishing off white head. Aroma is very light, some caramel, maybe nutty malts, and a little bit of spice. Palate: very easy to drink but maybe a little to watery and carbonated. Flavor is very similar to the aroma, malt and light spice, nothing that leaves much of an impression. Overall this is not a very complex beer. However, is is very easy drinking and pretty cheap, so I’ll probably end up getting it again.
(yay! first rating!)

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear burnt orange with a nice lasting cap. Big dry malty aroma of biscuits and toffee, with some sort of earthy funkiness I cannot put my finger on. Flavor is nice and full but on a medium body. Big malty toffee and biscuit malts, with some dry mustard-like tone. A very malty and slightly bitter oktoberfest, sweet on the start and dry on the middle-finish, as it should be. Pure autumnal goodness.

Bottle from Systembolaget.
Clear light amber with a small thick head. Aroma and taste of grain, malt, caramel and crispbread. The finosh was dry. Drinkable but nothing special.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft to taster. Looks good for the style; a transparent deep gold with white lacing. Smells of malt and lager yeast. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. A decent example of the style.

Courtesy of Sea Bass. Pours clear copper with gold edges and thin off white head. The aroma is sweet lager type malts, rich Munich grainy malts, moderate roasted malts and corn. The taste is rich maltiness with Munich malts, caramel, caraMunich, biscuit and some nuttiness. Wow, great malty brew.

Good for what it is. Would be easy to drink in a stein, but then again I’ve had better marzens. Tasted this at a Giant and didn’t opt for a growler.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
35,5 cl bottle @ One Pint Pub, BBE 11.07.2015. Aroma is rather malty and grainy with some sweet tones and hints of toffee. Flavour has vegetables, toffee, minerals, some goosebery bush and nettles. Thin and too much off-flavours here.
