COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
E.J. Phair Marzen is a German style amber lager brewed with eight different malts. It is crisp and clean with a wonderful malt character and virtually no bitterness. The term Marzen means March in German and that is when this style is traditionally brewed. Luckily E.J. Phair Marzen is available year round.

Looks kind of like tea when poured. Has a really fruity flavor. Little bit of bitterness at the back end. Enjoyable.

Bottle from World Market in Fairfield, CA. Poured a dark copper color with a large tan head. I was very surprised with how much sweetness this beer had. My wife, who doesn’t drink beer, liked it. Very sweet and malty with the flavor of carmel and dark fruits. If you like sweet beer this is for you.

Aroma is of carmel and roasted malt. Flavor is very sweet, carmel, almost cloying. Very one dimensional. Boring.

A nice Marzen for me, expected much more sweetness in this one, but it wasn’t too sweet, a nice drinkable brew. My first beer from this brewery, I’d like to try more.
