Day 7 Advent. 500mL can poured into a pint glass. Clear gold with active carbonation with a two finger fluffy white head. The aroma is not very present, Spaten light I think covers it. Pale malts and mild grains dominate the taste. Pretty straight ahead, not much depth or complexity. Carbonation is medium to medium low, with a slightly creamy then drying feel. Goes down fast.

500 ml can stamped on the bottom of the can with a production date of July 2015 and a EXP(iration) date of Sept. 2016.

This is true to style. Moderately malty and more malty that hoppy until the aftertaste. Lightly sweet up front with a very mildly bitter aftertaste. Hints of caramel, vanilla and faint spices. Dominated by a rich baked bread flavor.

Appearance: attractive, deep amber body topped by a durable white head that leaves sheets of lacing.

Medium body and medium+ carbonation.

500ml can, day 4 of the 2015 Costco Beer Advent Calendar - more mountain beer from Germany, this time from the king!

This beer pours a clear, bright medium copper amber colour, with three fingers of puffy, tightly foamy, and somewhat bubbly ecru head, which leaves some nice layered paint swath lace around the glass as it slowly blows off.

It smells of semi-sweet, bready pale and caramel malt, a twinge of charred biscuits, real vanilla, stewed apples, and a rather laid-back earthy, leafy, and herbal hoppiness. The taste is grainy, bready, and doughy caramel malt, apple and pear tarts, a further toasted biscuity thing, and adequately bitter leafy, grassy, and weedy noble hops.

The carbonation is rather full and robust in its buoying frothiness, the body a solid middleweight, and generally smooth, with nothing really existing here to make any sort of fuss - Teutonic orderliness, and all that. It finishes well off-dry, the malt still the big star, while the fruity and hoppy notes retreat, regroup, and rearm to fight another day.

While lacking some of the subtleties of its more renowned fellow Bavarian producers, this version comes off as worthy in its own right. Sweet, sure, but moderated well enough by a smidge of smoke and the attendant hops, and with only a wee uptick in the ABV. I would have no problem putting this stuff back amongst wurst, dirndls, and oom-pah music anywhere.

Appearance: Moderate light golden orange body, crowned by a small, dense, and persistent snow-white head. Thick, Belgian-style lacing adorns the glass walls. There are numerous streams of minute, fast-rising bubbles.

Aroma: Pronounced aroma of white bread, light caramel, and a slight spiciness. Modest floral hops present, as well.

Taste: Opens with moderately sweet notes of light caramel, and a mild herbal bitterness. As the taste progresses, the white bread and light caramel notes ascend, with a backdrop of mild bitterness. Finishes with a very mild, lingering herbal bitterness.

Mouth feel: Full, and pleasant.

Drinkability/notes: A decent and drinkable example, worth a try.

Presentation: Packaged in a 500 ml, 16.9 ounce steel can, served in a standard Pilsener glass. Expiration date on the bottom of the can is 03/2019. Beer number seven (December 7th) from the 2017 Costco Advent Beer Calendar.

Pours a slightly foggy straw with 2 fingers of head. Fair head retention with no lacing left behind. Aroma is wheat, yeast, and pale malts. Flavor profile is pale and biscuit malts, with wheat and yeast in the background. Mouth feel is medium, with a nondescript texture. Overall, a fine Marzen. It isn't overly constructed, just a simplistic brew.

Served in a 12oz shifter from a 16oz can.

Exp date 3/2019, out of the Costco Advent box. A crystal-clear golden color with a frothy and large bright white head. Great foam retention. Bready smell with some floral hops. Decent bready taste with some faint caramel. moderate bitterness with some floral tones but a bit muddled. Also a slightly metallic aftertaste. Overall a nice beer but not in the league of other well-known Marzens.

From the can, it pours a clear medium amber with a nice off-white head. Malt in the nose. The mouth revels in the malty flavor, with a small carbon dioxide bite. Yum!

From the Costco Beer Advent Calendar. 2017 = again!
