Clear light golden color with slightly off-white head. Aroma has clean malt and noble hop character. Taste is quite balanced for a märzen, very clean malt, slightly grainy, not toasted or overly sweet. Finish has a light bitterness. Light body, medium carbonation. It’s not really what you would expect from the style but overall it’s a clean and easy drinking lager.

I happened to buy a bottle that was skunked so I need to take this into account. It pours golden with a decent amount of foam (not much retention). The smell was of pure skunk for the first few seconds. Some malts came through. Very little in the terms of hops. Fairly sweet and with a light body. Not something I'd get out of my way to purchase again.

500ml can, day 18 of the Costco Canada 2014 Beer Advent calendar. Nice to see this one having a discernible home here.

This beer pours a clear, pale golden yellow colour, with three fingers of puffy, loosely foamy, and bubbly off-white head, which leaves some variable spackled lace around the glass as it quickly recedes.

It smells of grainy, crackery pale malt, oaten breakfast cereal, stale butter, acetone, and weak earthy, weedy noble hops. The taste is bready, lightly doughy malt, more strangely isolated wet cereal notes, ethereal lemon rind, a hard to ignore diacetyl unpleasantness, and mildly spicy, earthy hops.

The carbonation is fairly active in its moderating frothiness, the body on the light side of medium weight, and kind of clammy, which precludes any overt claims of smoothness. It finishes off-dry, that buttered bread essence starting to really get on my last nerve.

Another bland and uninspiring Euro-trash offering from this so-called Advent calendar. I have a pretty good idea who these brews are aimed at around here, and it's a shame, partly because (from direct experience) of their general lack of beer knowledge, and partly due to the fact that the importer needs to step it up more than a few notches. Pass.

Appearance: Golden; effervescent; small head

Aroma: Malty; hoppy; straw-like

Taste: Juicy malt; slightly hoppy; very crisp and refreshing; not bad at all

Remarks: Bought in Salzburg, AT; it was very hot and I was thirsty, so score may be higher than normal. Nonetheless, I enjoyed the beer.

Did not score A, T, S, M at that time; disregard those scores

Pale golden colour, small thin head which didn't hang around long, small amount of lacing retained. Malty aroma, hints of vanilla and red cabbage point to Saaz hop. Tasted sweet apple, hint of malt and vanilla, bready finish. Soon went flat, texture too thick, fairly smooth. Drinkable but too thick to be a decent Vienna or Helles lager, lacking the depth of a decent Märzen.

.5L bottle dated March 2013 consumed in Vienna.

Pours a light yellow-golden color, with a sudsy white head. The head has moderate duration and leaves more lacing than expected.

M: light body with aggressive carbonation. Quite crisp with a lightly dry finish.

This looks, smells and tastes very light for a Marzen. Really, this is best thought of as a light Marzen. It is clean and refreshing, and has a very good sweet/bitter balance. So, while not a particularly good Marzen, it is a decent, low-cost go-to beer for a cold summer beverage.

I bought this beer yesterday in an Austrian supermarket, the Billa shop. Poured in a normal drinking glass the beer looks quit nice in the beginning but in lass than a minte the head is totally gone and a yellow fluid with no carbonation at all stays behind in the glass.

They have used a bitter hop and that makes the beer not BA worthy. Light bread taste.
