2.43/5  rDev -20.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

The beer is clear amber, with an off-white head that leaves some lacing.

The smell is sweet, bread and grains.

The taste is very sweet, syrup, raisins, pears (canned pears), a bit sharp bitterness in the finish.

Small carbonation, a sweet syrup feeling with a short dry tang.

No, this did not become me.

2.74/5  rDev -10.7%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

The colour is amber, the liquid clear. The three finger head is off-white and airy. It leaves almost no lacing.

The smell is sweet with a clean bitter note. Some roasted notes, hints of nuts and dark rye bread.

The taste is sweet with distinct notes of nuts and dough. It got some strange metallic bitter flavours and quite a lot raw alcohol. The aftertaste is a bit frowsy with some unclean flavours of dough, salt and metal.

The carbonation is medium strong with small bubbles. The liquid is a bit dry and light.

An unfinished brew with too much alcohol and raw notes.

3.57/5  rDev +16.3%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

Served with a nice foamy, frothy, off white head that settled out quickly and a tiny bit of lace. Color is a clear, rich amber with bubble trails. Aroma is on the mild side and is malty and toasty. Flavor is similar plus is clean, some dryness, and has hints of rye and fruit. Good balance between bitter, sweet, and tang. Body is very good; ditto carbonation. Finish is like flavor and is medium long in length. Session.

A: Pours copper-colored with a rather small white head that sinks slowly leaving rich spiderweb-like lacings.

S: Rich malty smell - bready, almost like ryebread. Some sweetness and citric notes.

T: Malty a bit dry from the bitter hops. Bready. Citric notes.

M: A bit rough, medium full body. Medium carbonation. Aftertaste lingers, and holds only bitternett.

D: Really nice to pick up a decent Märzen from Finland - but this one could hardly compete with the better Bavarian ones.
