3.03/5  rDev +26.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

The colour is yellow with a tint of gold. The large warm white foam slowly sinks down to a finger thick head leaving some fine lacing on the glass.

The smell is sweet with some hoppy notes and roasted hints. It is rather neutral.

The taste is sweet and malty and somewhat roasted. It is rather neutral for a Märzen. The body is medium to fill. The aftertaste is malty with some light bitterness and a hint of cookies.

The carbonation is medium strong; the soft bubbles are big. The liquid is smooth.

Just another Oktoberfestbier... Maybe a bit neutral (read "boring") than the rest).

look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

The beer is clear and straw colored, the head is white and is leaving some lacing.

The smell has some faint citric vibes, but mostly a corn(y) sweetness and boiled cabbage.

The taste is sweet, corn flakes, some acidity, a faint metallic bitterness. Alcohol.

Medium carbonation, no body.

This must really be a mass produce euro pale lager. Just as the other Arboga beers. They must have been better 1365, otherwise they would never had sold beer after 1366 ...

A: Pours strawcolored - almost like an adjunct lager... The white head is really large and still compact. Leaves pretty nice lacings after the quick dissipation.

S: The smell is rather weak - corny sweetness and very little malt.

T: The taste is similar to the smell. Weak and corny. Some malt, but quite unbalanced. Some bitterhops.

M: The aftertaste is the best part - quite long and with nice bitterness. Body is light and carbonation is medium.

D: Märzen is usually a refreshing malty brew. This is a corny replica - pick up a Bavarian Märzen instead.
