Like the Märzen, this is a fantastic beer. Slightly more complex and balanced perhaps, the smokiness less in your-face. Full bodied. Like the Märzen: excellent.

This one is smoked from Beech Tree wood hence the world famous taste. The Oak smoked version ( green label ) is even more smooth and an absolute wonder in the world of smoked beers.

This one is very similar to the Marzen classic, but I prefer it because it has a more complex taste. While it is still extra smokey I can taste a bit more of the oakwood and it was a bit more smooth. A little less sticky than the Marzen. Good stuff.
