Seasonal Marzen Bier. Big, red, malty and smooth - the Chief is an amber lager. These beers were traditionally brewed in March then cellared in caves over the Northern Summer until October. Fortunately you won’t have to wait that long. Chief will be pouring in late March. Think 6%ish ABV, bags o malt and very smooth. One tank only!

Tap @ Chloe’s Bar at Young and Jackson, Melbourne. Pours clear deep red amber with a huge creamy off white head leaving plenty of lace. Aroma is metallic, fruity, slightly malty and hoppy. Flavor is well malty, toasted, a bit caramel, fruity and bitter. Finishes malty and bitter.

330ml bottle. One of the better marzens I have had. Deep red hue, bordering on copper, with a good sized creamy head. Musk lollies in the aroma while the flavour has some caramel and a bit of butterscotch in it. Good texture in the mouth with a bitter sweetness on the palate.

bluebetty (1021) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 28, 2011
Bottle. Pours a slightly reddish brown with small light tan coloured head. Falls away very quickly. Initial aromas are dominated by yeast, but this is soon replaced by nutty malt and dark fruits. Nice. Flavours are very sweet with lots of vegemite like malt coming through. Carbonation is a little excessive. Thin to medium mouthfeel.

Davros (2746) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 28, 2011
Pours light copper wtih a quickly fading head. Nose shows lovely nutty malt in abundance! Very potent! Not much else though... Nutty malt continues as a flavours alongside a little caramel. Pretty light on after that though. Need more malt, the nutty malt alone gets a bit boring. Soft carbonation could be higher.

hawthorne00 (3453) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 13, 2011
Bottle. Almost still clear amber beneath a cm of off-white head. Aroma is toffee and grass. Taste is rich caramel, some nuts with just a hint of grass struggling at the end that limits the sweetness. Pretty good in style that rarely appeals to me.

davidm (2069) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 4, 2010
Tap. Very enjoyable beer. Aromas of cola, liquorice, and caramel. Taste is sweet, but has some bitterness in the background; good length. Palate is velvety, and medium-bodied. Brown colour, with a thin white head that disappears.

...on tap at the brewery. Well, I have to say that it is very malty, which hides the alcohol well. Nice deep amber color, but of course with the signature "no head" of all thier beers, oh well. Seems to be lacking some body for that true "Marzen" experience, but hey, it’s brewed in Australia. Finishes dry and malty. Decent, but I don’t have it often, not enough complexity or flavor.
