2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear golden coloured body with a fast-dying, two centimetre tall pure white soapy head. Aroma of grass, light malt, caramel and a touch of alcohol. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong grassy and herbal flavours with some light malt and caramel notes and a hint of a sweet potato aftertaste. Aftertaste shows the caramel and earthy malt more than anything else. Soft and sweet finish with nothing harsh, but nothing complex nor strong on the end. Overall, a decent marzen with less of a deep flavour than most, but still a soft finish. I sampled this 50 cL can purchased from Spar [Gourmet] in the centre of Wien, Austria a few hours ago on 21-March-2016 for €1,17 sampled in my apartment hotel here in the middle of Wien, Austria on 21-March-2016.

Golden with little white head. Grassy hops and fruity (in particular apple) and hay malt aroma. Taste is very mild. No particular bitterness or sweetness. Body only thin. Could have more of everything but overall decent.

It seems a really bad beer at the first impression but after it is not a so bad product. The smell at the nose is discreet. The color is yellow clear lager. The foam is really thin and average carbonation. The taste is in the mouth malty-bitter with some hop, not that bad.

Bottle from Bier-Advent Kalender, Switzerland
Blond color, medium head. Among Lagers, this one has a good malt backbone, it’s dry, not weak, and not sweet as other Märzen; bold bitterness.

Transferring old data - I used to like it when I lived in Berlin. Strong malty flavor, the end is too watery though.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Have drunk much better märzen in my days. This actually doesnt taste like a Märzen at all. More like an slightly overhopped Pilsener. Or a mishap of a Bavarian Hell. Kinda watery, when its starting to warm up.
.. if there is nothing else at hand, and it was strongly cooled (read: frosty), it might work. Aside of that: WAAAY Worse than I expected. Nay! *shudders*
