Poured a giant 1 liter can into the 1 liter Paulaner krug that came with it. We really need more 1 liter cans.

This beer pours a crystal clear golden straw with a big frothy white head that leaves barley any lacing down the sides of the mug as it recedes. The aroma is grassy hops up front, with a slight toast and just a bit of fresh bread. Very simple and straight forward. Nothing but simple clean aromas. Thats my favorite thing about good lagers. There is no way to hide things, its either there or its not. The flavor is exactly the same with slightly grassy hops and some yeasty biscuits. A slight bit of caramel mixed with toasty bread. Really simple, really straight forward. Great stuff. The mouthfeel is light and slightly creamy, with just a hint of dryness that makes your mouth linger for another sip. Man, this brings me back to Munich. I would rather be sipping on a liter of this in a biergarten then in my living room. i have a feeling ill be giving away a lot of Paulaner 1 liter krugs.

Apperance: Poured from a 1 quart 1.82 fl oz can into a 1 liter seidel. Topped with a rocky three fingers worth of head is a clear orange beer.

Aroma: Floral hops with a little bit of dryness in the nose. Bready malts with twinges of grassy and piney bits. Minor sweet fruit notes towards the back end.

Taste: An interesting dryness but it's only the slightest touch. Floral hoppy goodness with bready malts grace the pallate. The mouthfeel is definately smooth almost buttery.

Notes: Well this is what marzen is like straight from Germany the verdict is quite tasty. Prost.

"1 Ale" can poured into 1L Paulaner Special Edition Mug

A: Beautiful in the huge mug. Large 3 finger head foamy head that reduces to a creamy film atop a golden brew.

S: Bready and malty, not really a lot happening for me here. I can smell some alcohol.

T: Light and malty. I get a little bit of hops. The alcohol is hidden very well, but still present.

MF: Light and bubbly, very refreshing.

D: I was wondering how long it would take me to drink this whole beer, it went surprisingly quickly, therefore it must have a good drinkability.

A - Poured from a massive 1 liter can into the krug. A nice dark golden colour that was nice and crystal clear with a fluffy 4 finger head that quickly dissolved and left minimal residue.

S - Typical aromas here. Light malts but nothing all that special. Smells hoppy (grassy) but doesnt taste it, just a nice light bready, malty flavour.

T - Much like the nose this is somewhat typical, just with a bit more grassy notes than usual. Overall tasty and just different enough from the run of the mill fare.

M - Nice and light with low but crisp carbonation. Really refreshing and enjoyable.

D - Such a nice fresh, crisp mouthfeel along with a nice aroma and flavour makes this an incredibly sessionable beer even with its amount!
