COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our only regularly produced lager, this rich malty beer uses just the right amount of noble hops to balance the Munich Malts and features an ultra clean finish to complete the package. Brewed with local spring water, organic malts and organic hops. Oh yeah!

Solid marzen. Good malt backbone. Interestingly light finish due to the hops.

I tried this beer on December 22, 2010 at "Bar Volo" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a beautiful translucent cherry red, with a thin white head. The aroma is grainy malt, light fruit, caramel, and weak floral hops. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour was a perfect balance between the malty sweeetness and the hoppy bitterness. Easy to drink!

600mL bottle found at the only place in Ontario where you can get held up in line by a guy who dropped a can of Molson Canadian, didn’t have to pay for it and got a free replacement. What a province. This one pours a clear amber-orange. A deliciously deep, grainy malt body steals the show here in both flavour and aroma. In a beer which could have been a touch too sweet, there is a lot of balance achieved through the dryness in the finish which is pulled off quite well. I think the bottles at the LCBO right now are quite fresh, and worth checking out. It’s so nice to see actual Oktoberfest beers this time of year.

PeteP (8) - North Lancaster, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 5, 2014 does not count
Poured into a pint glass, two finger head. Fruits, caramel, spices and a characteristic Beau’s taste. Medium bodied, sweet grainy with a citrus finish! I’ll have another!

600mL bottle from the LCBO. Pours a gorgeous clear amber with a good white head. Aroma is standard decent lager smell. But the taste - wow! Big surprise, this is a very full-flavoured lager. Perfectly balanced notes of caramel, slightly-roasted barley, and delicious hops. Big body for a lager. This is a terrific lager! Well done, Beau’s. Oktoberfest is long since over, but I enjoyed with a dinner of sausage with sauerkraut.

600 mL bottle. Pours a clear orange tinted copper, firm head of beige bubbles, very pretty. Aroma is fairly vegetal, notes of bell pepper, flowers, and yeasty bread. Medium carbonation and body, smooth on the palate, distinct lager refreshment. Flavors of caramel and toast come through, a little roasted oats and herbs. A touch of sweetness with a light hoppy finish. A nice medium bodied lager.

MartinT (7811) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 7, 2013
My Bottom Line :
This malt lover’s Märzen serves up bread crusts, lightly burnt sugar and chewy barley on a most elegant palate.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A veil of foam covers the translucent pale amber.
-Soft carbonation and lean residual sugars combine for a easygoing, cuddly mouthfeel.
-Hops are timid throughout. A touch of wooden bitterness in the finish, but that’s it.
-Again, beautifully developed soft malt character in this Beau’s lager.

Bottle.

lesifflebiere (1269) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 1, 2014
Limpide, belle couleur orange vif, carbonatation moyenne-haute, nez boisé tout en sucre d’orge et en malts légèrement rôtis. La bouche est sèche, soutenue par une finale houblonnée, mais tout de même ronde et riche. On décèle quelques fruits rouges (cerises douces, entre autres). La levure est nette, totalement en retrait face aux malts et aux houblons qui occupent de façon heureuse tout l’espace. Excellente bière, à la fois goûteuse, complexe et à haute buvabilité.

bunget (550) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 4, 2012
600ml bottle. A clear copper body, medium beige head. Aroma of herbal/floral hops, good dose of malt, cereal, caramel, rye bread. Taste dominated by a good amount of malt, rye bread, herbal hops bitterness, caramel. Long bitter aftertaste.

Thick foamy off white head, that quickly dissipates. Pours a clear deep amber red. Night malty smell to this beer, with notes of chocolate, oatmeal, and caramel. The smell is deceiving though, the taste is not as malty as the smell would make you believe. A quick malty taste quickly gives way to a dry hops. Notes of resin and pine linger on the tongue, however a slight malty-caramel taste creeps in at the end. Great looking and tasting beer, this is my first Marzen and I am impressed. From what I gather it is not as malty as a traditional Marzen, but it is still a great brew non the less!
