boddhitree (58) - Frankfurt, Hesse, GERMANY - MAY 9, 2013
Brauerei Engelbräu’s Wertacher Marktbier. I was looking to try a Märzen, and this one was one of the few in a Bülgelverschluß (plop-tops), which I reuse for my homebrew, in the Märzen category at Biershop-bayern. Color is dark golden with some orange tints. A dirty white head foam that quickly disappeared. Aroma is strong Müncher and Pils malt, very aromatic, with just a hint of hops. Basically, it smells like a typical Bayrisches beer. They say it’s unfiltered, but it’s clear as a bell. The taste is also typical, but it tastes almost exactly the way its aroma promises. Flavor is very malty, sweet, not like a Dunkeles, less caramel, nonetheless a malty sweetness is there. More pronounced is a Tettnanger or Hallertauer, or Spalter hop spicy, lightly peppery, some bitterness. Overall, a good beer, rather typical, though. I’m not sure if all Märzen taste like this one, but what I like is the spiciness, light pepper with underlying malty sweetness, a sweetness that is strongest especially in the aftertaste. I wouldn’t buy it again but I recommend it. I’d rather try other Märzens to see how they compare.

Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass golden, nice head. Fine spicy aroma. Starts malty, more and more spicy, light moldy-grasy notes. Background a bit sourish, not too intense. Finish with grasy-malty notes, still fine spicy. I liked it!
