Glad I found this. It always nice to compare how German Benedictine monks may have started a brewing tradition. But Anno 1050 was a bit of a disappointment after the 3 other beers I've had from Weltenburger, which averaged 4.07.
Their marzen is good, but not in the same class as those 3.

Looks like a marzen, nice amber. Smells, well, I prefer a sweeter malt to jump into my nose and this was, well, just malt.
Tastes also is balanced, but undistinguished... Feel is decent, nicely soft, minimal bubbles.
Would I have it again? Probably one and done.

A nice, bread-like tasting beer.

330 ml brown bottle into a Creature Comforts glass.

Smooth, medium-full body with lively carbonation.
Aroma: Spicy and earthy hops with caramel and baked bread.
Flavor: follows the aroma, but stronger than the aroma suggests. Excellent balance. Lightly sweet up front and mildly bitter in the finish.

Overall: excellent for style.

Again, I am confused on how this one is not rated higher! Beautiful clear gold to amber with a fluffy white head that fades into a nice little ring. Smells of honey drizzled biscuits! Tastes similar with a nice sticky mouth feel, inviting to sip it again and again. Too easy to drink. What, not bitter enough!? It's a marzen people! Delicious. Prost!

Copper hued body; creamy head. Malty nose with a ripe pit fruit edge; pear. Light bread flavors infused with esters; subtle bitterness. Heavy body; smooth and rich; sweet finish but nothing cloying.

A very fine late summer, early fall malt-forward beer. It has a big sweetness combined with a nearly tangy fruitiness that just meshes well. Nice balance, excellent complexity. A swifty little import...
