A typical Austrian Märzenbier, mildly hoppy, highly fermented and full-bodied in taste. With 5.2% alcohol by volume and original gravity of 11.8ºPlato, it is a highly drinkable, well-rounded beer with a pronounced malt flavour. Award winner at national and international beer competitions, Gold Medal winner and holder of Monde Selection International High Quality Trophy. “Märzen” is derived from the German word for the month of March, März. Traditionally, beer was brewed in the autumn, and the barrels of beer would be covered with ice during the cold winter months. By the time the ice melted in March, the beer would be ready to drink.

Jonb5 (459) - Greater London, - OCT 19, 2012
Pale golden colour, clear, small thin head which didn’t hang around long, tiny amount of lacing retained. Aroma was malty, strong hints of cabbage and vanilla, points to Saaz. Tasted bready, notes of sweet apple as well as malt, hint of vanilla. Soon went flat, texture was quite thick, fairly smooth. Overall, drinkable but too thick to be a Helles and slightly lacing depth to be a Maerzen.

Pours a clear golden color, topped with a medium sized frothy white head. Mild malty aroma with some grains present. A bit grassy perhaps. Taste is malty, mild sweetness with ok bitterness in teh finish. Not a bad one. Nothing extra special either.
