Normally, when you enjoy a lager beers tend to be very balanced, excess bitter taste or staying some part unbalanced. This beer is round without imbalance. Although not the style I do recognize that there are craft beer.

From Hipercor Huelva. In Paulaner glass. Watching Narcos 1x09. A very drinkable and nice tasting brew

Served cool from 500ml bottle into straight pilsner mug.

L) Deep amber colour, clear, lots of bubbles, 2cm bright white bubbly head, dissipates to <1cm fairly quickly.

S) Nothing huge, but some fairly weak odours of warm malts.

T) Deep malty flavour, slight refreshing acidity from carbonation, light hop bitterness at the back. Nothing complicated here.

F) Medium carbonation for a lager, and a bit of density. No bitterness or unwelcome aftertastes.

O) Malty Vienna-type lager, easy drinking, a good chewy chugger for lager drinkers in the winter months.

Clear, amber, finger and a half of a slowly receding off-white head. Seems rather carbonated, too.
Sweet malt, caramel, toasted grain, hint of citrus peel, stale fruit, faint German hop.
Sweet malt syrup and caramel in the taste, on the brink of being simply too much. Biscuit, some spiciness, a generic fermenting fruit note too (apple, faint dark grape). Some woody, or rather hay-like notes, some hops in the finish, trying to be bitter enough to cut off the sweetness, but failing. Bit of metal instead.
The body is really nice, rather smooth, fluffy, tho a bit sticky. Not overly carbonated. Aftertaste has lingering sweet malts and an off note, probably the lager yeasts.
Doesn't really warm much, but it's almost tasty, better than many other märzenbiers out there and almost fitting that profile (makes me think of a Vienna lager more), so might be a good alternative to those. Finishing it wasn't a chore, so i guess it's ok.

A: Dark, orangy amber, clear, large thick tanned head which didn’t hang around
long, moderate lacing.

S: Malt, charcoal, reminiscent of a dunkel.

T: Started with hints of slightly sweet malty charcoal which was balanced out by some fuggles hop like earthy hoppy bitterness.

M: Slightly thick texture, low to moderate carbonation,
smooth.

O: Combined aspects of an English bitter, Munich dunkel and a Franconian
kellerbier. Pretty solid.

pours a darker golden honey color, minimal head. nice uneven lacing down the side.
smells like a dark honey. sweet, caramel-y malts in the aroma and in the taste. minor bitterness longer after the liquid is down but it's actually very balanced. some healthy carbonation rising in the tall Paulaner glass.
trying to check my son's homework but incredibly distracted by this greatly balanced, semi-sweet, delicious brew. i like the even taste and the european accent.

Two fingers of head on a cloudy copper colored body.
The aroma is malty, barnyard, hay and caramel. It borders musty, but it's still nice.
The flavor has a malt sweetness, mild bitterness and a curious spice note at the end.
Smooth texture with low carbonation and heavier body.
An enjoyable beer. The taste is a bit different with the spice, but it's a good addition.

I just found my notes and the good looking label that I had carefully soaked off of this bottle.

Coppery orange color with an off-white, creamy head. Thick sheets of lace stuck to the glass.
Biscuity malt smell, but also alot more hoppiness than I was expecting.
The flavor also had more hop strength compared to the malt. A bit tough to put into words, as I was expecting a malty marzen / winter ale. Slightly buttery, and caramel notes, but more akin to a pale ale.
Mouthfeel is medium, carbonation level gave it a smooth finish.
Pretty average all in all, I guess I was expecting something more and different.
