Pours a golden colored beer, with a big, fluffy white head.

Smells of young straw, wet grass, a hint of dried wheat, accompanied by toffee and white bread dough. Pretty fulfilling on the nose, due to a herbal hop crispness which blends perfectly into the rustic, bright foundation of the beer.

Has a lively carbonation, while the beer manages to produce a crisp, entertaining flavor profile, showcasing a light, refreshing body.

Tastes of straw right from the beginning, together with wet grass, forest leaves and an effervescent, lively peak. Turns a tad thinner after the swallow, showcasing a stony mineral quality, white bread dough, rich wheat and a hint of toffee. Finishes sweeter, with more toffee on the tongue, balanced by a nice, late noble hop dryness.

Perfect example of this style. I could not stop taking big gulps of this since it is truly refreshing while providing a bright, enjoyable taste of wheat and straw, rounded out by a great hop crispness.

Very pale golden color, large head. Floral and slightly toasted malty smell. Malty flavor, fairly sweet with hops in the middle and very sweet and dry finish. Medium carbonation, light to medium body, deep buttery grainy malt, low bitterness. Palate was mellow, finish hopy, but very refreshing and drinkable. Moderately strong.

Clear golden color with white head. Aroma has bready malts and some specific spiciness I get in Märzen beers. Taste is also bready and slightly sweet. A bit of hop bitterness in the finish. Body is a bit more dense than a regular lager but still in the light-medium zone. A bit of warming from the alcohol which I don't like. Märzen is definitely one of my least favorite beer styles but this one is pretty decent.
