Originally brewed in winter of 2011 to help Snowbowl commemorate 50 years in business, this Wintermärzen was intended to just have a few runs. However, by popular demand, Bayern is offering this decoction-mash brew for more ski seasons. Groomer is now hitting the slopes in 12 oz. bottles! Bayern does not recommend drinking while skiing, though... you might spill your beer!

DuffMan (9542) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 19, 2013
Bottle. Nice deep copper orange, frothy beige head. Low aroma of grainy caramel. Same flavours on the palate, grainy caramel, a little bready perhaps. Just okay.

after4ever (7581) - Brier, Washington, USA - FEB 5, 2013
Draft at NCBC. Pours a murky and very dark mahogany. Impressive coloration. Loose filmy tan head. Light sheety lace. Virtually no nose, good or bad. Creamy medium body with subdued carb. Light toasty caramel on the mid palate but not a lot of other flavors showing. Mild finish.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Bottle:   Ruby in color, thin to moderate foamy tannish head, little lacing.   Soft biscuit and bready nose.   Heavy biscuit on the tongue, bready, slight cough syrup like qualities.   A bit too sweet and bready at times.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Hard to even finish a 12oz bottle of this.   Too bready, biscuity, sweet, and with too much cough syrup.

riversideAK (6140) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - FEB 27, 2013
Green apple like all of their beers on the nose caramel and some bread. Pours hazy golden amber. Thin head. Flavora of caramel and green apple. Tangy crisp hops. Unremarkable.

maxwelldeux (4348) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - NOV 19, 2014
Bottle. Pours a rather dark brown color with a small light tan head on there. Nose is very light for me, with only hints of bread and toast to it. Taste is also pretty light, though stronger, and comes off as a bit sweet, nutty, and toasty. Light drink, but nothing remarkable.

beastiefan2k (3547) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - NOV 23, 2014
12oz bottle poured into a mini willibecker glass. Pours [surprisingly] dark brown with a medium head. By looking at it I would guess its a Vienna or even Schwarz before Marzen. Head fades to a surface covering lacing. Aroma is toasty malt with some noble hop character and a mild wet brown bread. All very well melded, well attenuated, lagered malt sweetness. Flavor has more of the black bread touches and ends with a light lingering noble hop character. Perfectly clean, nice soft carbonation, sweetness from malt character only, very nice lagering. Clean, short aftertaste. This was a real surprise and a real treat.

Bottle. Dark leathery brown pour with a thin creamy khaki head. Nose is sweet; malty, candied fruit, and light chocolate. Crisp mouthful slowly turns to a bready and chocolate malt finish. Yeast, light fruit presence, and some earthiness. Refreshing.
