3.79/5  rDev +8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

500 ml bottle was poured into a mug.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a copper color with great clarity and vision of tiny bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Toasted, caramel, doughy, lager yeast, and Noble hops.

Taste: Nice blend of caramel, doughy, and toasted malts with light Noble hop flavor and bitterness, lager yeastiness, and chewy notes in the rear.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, light bodied, medium carbonation, a little sweet, slightly chewy, and light bitterness.

Overall: An an enjoyable marzen. I look forward to more of this in the future.

Bottle 20.07.16. Strong alcoholic aroma with iron notes, also caramel and bread. Dark golden coloured, white 3 fingered head fastly reduces to small ring without lacing. In taste mainly caramel with choking and biting alcohol. In background some malt and bread. Low bitterness combined with stong roasty and bready aftertaste. Carbonation over average, medium body, slick texture. Not especially good. Due to defects, drinkability is lower than medium.

This pours a caramel colored amber in the glass. Malt forward, with a caramel tinged note. Pleasant, with a touch of a grassy green hop bite lending distinction to a caramel malt backed body. Impulse buy from the local Russian market. No complaints on my end.

"March" beer, how utterly appropriate. Very cool that this tradition exists in Poland, interested to know more. If Wikipedia is to be believed, this started with the Lviv Brewery during the interwar period of the 20th century.

Very nice dark reddish amber color, initial layer of ecru foam settles quickly, and after a few sips there's nothing left. There's a nice bright clarity, and a steady plume of carbonation rising (etched Duvel tulip).

Aroma is vaguely fruity and very malty, nutty acorns, fall leaves, multigrain bread crusts.
Taste is pleasant, nutty malts dominate, feels a bit flat though. Nice lingering complex malt aftertaste. Body seems to to lose carbonation somewhat of time. Light to medium bodied, pleasantly dry in the finish. Bitterness level is close to zero. Overall an amped up Oktoberfest if I have to compare it to it's German counterparts, slightly more burly and rich in malt character.

3.47/5  rDev -1.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: pours an orange color with a short 1/4" head that falls to a thick surface covering.

Smell: some caramel and fruit sweetness comes through.

Taste: caramel, ripe dark fruits, and a moderate bitterness create a beer that is straightforward.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Crisp to start, less crisp at the finish. Short lasting aftertaste.

Overall: this beer leans towards an oktoberfest but is a bit milder in the flavor. Not bad.

Wonderful clear red color, average bready smell, tastes good and sweet, and too sweet in the aftertaste. Not bad, bit I'd always rather go for Kormoran Marcowe.
