2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, amber pour with a fine clingy white head and aromas of grassy hops and nutty malt. Body is dry, with a vegetal note, plus dry herby hops and biscuity malt. Decent enough, though no real depth to it. Tastes a bit cheap, which it was!

Pours a gold color with slight foam head. Nose of some grass, malt. Taste. Is a bit sweeter than expected, with malt, and a touch of lemon and honey. Not very complex. Easy to drink.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours dirty-gold with a tall white head.
Scent is slight GBS (green-bottle-skunk) and bread.
Taste is quite watery, grainy....minimal spicing....bread and caramel.
Generic lager flavours.
Nothing overtly bad, just boring and light.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
The head is medium, the body golden. It smells hoppy, sweet, a bit flowery-hoppy. The taste is hoppy, malty, hoppy-flowery, a bit bitter, strange. Tasty, easy drinkable, but not a typical Märzen. 11/10/10/9/11/10

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light copper color with quick diminishing white head. Toasty malt aroma. A very mild marzen - toasty malts, spice and biscuit. Low hops. Not a bad flavor but a watered down version of your typical Oktoberfest.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz. Light golden pour with a small white head. Aromas of skunky euro lager, light bread, and ceral. Flavor is much of the same and on the light side. Decent at best and worth the $6 a sixpack....

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale amber colour, medium head which wasn’t well retained, minimal lacing. Aroma was caramel and malt. Tasted malt, caramel, and paint, was a bit artificial and grainy a bit like what you get from cheap french lager. Initially it was well carbonated but soon went flat, texture was smooth, medium body. Just about drinkable but Maerzens should be left to the south Germans.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Gold with a white head. Grainy, bready and husky, with lighter earthy notes. Seems a bit on the old side, to be honest. Not bad.
