Clear amber color with off-white head. Aroma has toasted malts and a bit of brown sugar. Taste starts sweet and a bit astringent. Gets more balanced on the finish with some hoppy bitterness. Body is medium but the taste seems somehow watery. Carbonation is on the high side. Not bad but it has a somehow mineral feel and the carbonation is too high for my taste.

330ml bottle. Origin 'betrayed' by the following label typo: "..a fine bitterness und floral hop aromas".

This beer pours a slightly hazy medium amber hue, with two fingers of foamy, frizzy pale beige head, which leaves some sparse paramecia lace around the glass as it steadily recedes. It smells of lightly toasted, sweet bready malt, some edgy orchard fruitiness, and a bit of nail-polish alcohol esters. The taste is more bready, grainy malt, with a touch of toffee, and floral, earthy hops. The carbonation is on the low side, the body medium weight, and generally smooth. It finishes off-dry, the bready malt barely tempered by a latent weedy, earthy hoppiness.

A decent enough marzen, just lacking an overall crisp hop character, one that would make me subconsciously want another.

The Austrian Amber Lager - full bodied artisan lager with a complex malt structure.

Nose: Caramel malt, some hints of coffee, honey and light hop aroma, floral, grassy - some lemon...

Appearance: amber in colour, pretty clear considering it is unfiltered, nice foam, white head

Mouthfeel: Caramel malts, well balanced - not to hoppy, very good drinkability, floral and grassy hop aromas in the beginning - aftertaste - more floral, nicely carbonated, full - bodied

well made, good beer!

Thanks to Jim at Sherbrooke for the sample. Poured from a 330 ml brown bottle, this is an unfiltered version of the style. Pours out a cloudy bright marmalade hue, loose creamy off white head.

Toasty and bready malt are most prominent on the nose, backed up with some perfumey, floral hops.

Very clean flavour for an unfiltered beer. Mild bready malt that develops a toasty character in the middle, very light note of caramel, finishing with floral and faint grassy hops, while some yeasty spice lingers in the aftertaste, eventually developing a citrus rind character.

Medium-light bodied mouthfeel, slick texture with moderately brisk carbonation.

A very mild, clean Marzen, especially considering it is unfiltered. Doesn't really stand out one way or another, it's well-done and there is nothing offensive about it, just very mild in the flavour dep't.
