The stronger version of the SPEZIAL, brewed only from Nov to Dec each year. As good as the spezial. My favourite in the southwest of Germany. Pleasant bitternes, lots of mouthfulness. No undesired "side effects" on "the day after"! Cheers

BB 19-06-06. Nice white head and nice amber beercollor. Nose is sweetish malty, green and good and sharp spice, maybe of litle roast. Taste is also a taste explosion for a plager as this one is rich and full in taste and goes slowly and nicely into a well dosed bitterness. In aftertaste also alcohol noticable but though quiet high for a lagertype well hidden. Whole brew is well balanced and just a pleasure to drink. Wish I bought more but who knows that I'll get another chance this year.

The appearance of this brew is ho, hum. It has an alright head presentation, which is snow white, with decent lacing. The body is clear and gold in color.

Aroma is herbal and lemony, with a faint hint of tobacco.

The taste is spot on with lemony hops, some grainy huskiness.

Though this beer is a bit heavier at 5.6 ABV, it's actually pretty crisp, clean, and quite refreshing.

4.05/5  rDev -0.2%

Appearance: A bright gold body with a lot of white carbonation bubbles. The head is thin but foamy and there is a lot of lace at first but it dies down very quick.

Smell: The aroma is grassy with some fruity tone.

Taste: I felt that the beer had more of a regular bock like flavor than a Marzen as it is being labeled here.
.

Mouthfeel: Full and a bit sticky.

Overall: Very different than what you might be used to in a Holiday beer.

3.01/5  rDev -25.9%

appearance: Orange yellow color not especially, not a strong head

smell: A bit fruity and spicy a nice holiday flavor

taste: A bit bitter and not as appealing as one would want

mouthfeel: Somewhat weak but frankly it is kind of nice and the spices stay

overall: Not as fantastic as I would like but none the less a fair holiday brew but it could be the reason it was on the cheap shelf
