2.83/5  rDev -22%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

Clear pale yellow with a head that fades quick. Looks like any other standard european lager.

A touch of spice on the nose with a fair bit of sulfur. I like the slight hop presence, but overall not that appealing.

The taste is a little sweet malt with some not-very-well hidden alcohol. The back end is a bitter for the style but has a harshness.

Strange, harsh mouthfeel.

The alcohol comes through way too much and there's too much sulfur in the nose and a harsh bitterness in the aftertaste.

I was hoping this would grow on me as I got through the half liter, but alas, it got worse.
In the bottom two for me in regards to the Munich O'fests(the other one is Hofbrau.)

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Light yellow colour. Head smallish. Not much lacing (0.4L glass: handle, straight-up-sides).
Smells good. Loads of malt at first; grass, hay; a little sour as it goes further down the glass.
Mouthfeel: carbonation is not at all overpowering, yet bubbles exploding in your mouth, pop, pop; underneath smooth flowing, almost velvety even. Taste is tied up with the popping mini-explosions and the smooth-flow. The "pops" are hoppy and dry, the big undercurrent is a balanced blend of malt and hops.
The finish is hoppy, dry, but maybe a little weak (?) - a wee bit metallic I find - but I think I'll have to get a few more bottles to check this out ;-)
Aftertaste is good, clean, and then quite peppery on the tongue - like after eating Rocket salad.

I'm not that familiar with the Märzen style so cant judge it so well in term of for-the-style, but as said, I'll be getting more...
