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.

Clear golden yellow with white foam head. Somehow the foam wouldn’t stay (high altitude, drinking this in airplane). Aroma is malty, taste is good märzen taste, somewhat sparkling. High carbonated seems, or again airplane mode? Short but bitter aftertaste. (Vienna 201211)

Can from a Billa in Vienna. Pours gold with a creamy white head. Aroma is very bready. Med body or nearly. Flavor is lightly roasty/toasty bread with enough hop to render it moderately bitter.

MichaelAwesome (4314) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - OCT 8, 2014
Vernuenftiges Piwo mit einer milden Sueffigkeit und ebenso milden Aromen. Etwas Malz, leicht im Karamell. Stellenweise etwas duenn und laff, aber die milde Suesse zum Schluss machen es recht angenehm zu trinken.

McTapps (4329) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - OCT 8, 2014
Bottle from local Merkur in Austria. The beer pours out in a clear golden colour with low airy head and medium body. Aroma of hops and malt. Taste of light bitter hops, malt, barley, bread, straw and mild fruits. Mild bitter finish. Drinkable beer.

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 (368) - 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.
