COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 (360) - 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.

Pindoc (103) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 7, 2014
Der schöne weisse kompackte Schaum sitzt fest auf dem klaren goldgelben Bier. Ein aromatischer Duft steigt in die Nase. Der erste Schluck fliesst schmackhaft, süsslichbitter die Kehle hinunter. Der Abgang und Nachhall sind leicht bitter. Ein sehr gutes Bier!

0,5l bottle. Surprise, surprise! I remembered this beer as a quite bad one, but the brewers must have changed something in the last years. Nowadays its still an average but quite tasty and refreshing beer. Well done! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Saeglopur (328) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - MAY 23, 2014
Can. Clear, golden body, with a big, frothy, white head, that dissipates quickly. Aroma is light, grainy, sweet and metallic. Taste is watery and really unpleasant, with a dominant metallic note, some flat sweetness, grains and herbs. Mouthfeel is light, with a moderate carbonation and it finishes light, with grains, herbs and metallic notes again. Can’t finish this, this is just poor.

GoufCustom (823) - HONG KONG - JAN 7, 2014


500 ml can bought at Lafaco & Co’s booth at HKCEC in Wan Chai during Hong Kong Food Festival 2013.

Piss pale golden yellow colour; One quarter finger head with soapy white foam which fades in 30 seconds; Minimal sticky lacing and fizzy carbonation; Quite pungent smell of lager malt, with grains, hints of sugar, Light bread, lemon and light grass; Very low sweet taste of light malt, with strong grains, bread, light dough, thin liquorices, light lemon and faint grass; Light body, watery palate; Mouth feel is Pale Lager sans sugar, thin and watery with very strong grain taste. Quite bready, no off-taste. Very monotone; Hoppiness is very light lemon and grass in nose and taste. Liquorices is faint, led to a slightly astringent semi-finish; Slightly dry after taste, very easy to mouth.

Comments: A Pale Lager pretends to be a Maerzen. Easily quaffable but otherwise straight, clean, thin and boring. No!

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2014 50cl can in Vienna. Some barley and hops aroma. Pours clear golden, with minimal head. Watery and rather tasteless. Did not finish a can. Rerate: 2014/02/19 Another can from Austria. Good body, good carbonation but leittle to none in taste/aroma. This one smells a bit of peaches and soap.
