COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Märzen (mairtsen) is German for March. In the days before refrigeration, this would have been the last beer brewed in Germany until cooler weather returned in the Fall. Then, in late September any remaining Märzen beer would have been served at the Oktoberfest celebration in Munich. We don’t expect ours to last that long, but we did brew it to be very similar to our Octoberfest beer with pale malt, lots of Munich malt, carapils and caramunich malts. This beer is lightly hopped Tettnanger hops, to leave a rich malty flavor

Clear amber orange red with a fizzy white head. Faint malty aroma. Bready vanilla malt taste with a musty finish.

Gregis (1281) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - JUN 18, 2011
Shaker at the brewpub. Pours a pretty copper with a creamy beige head. The nose is a muted Munich/toasted malt and little more. Light-bodied and slick with a drying, mildly astringent finish. Toasty, sweet malt with just a hint of bitterness to keep the malt in-check. This is a solid example of the style but fails to hit all the notes that their Octoberfest (and the pilsner I just had) hit with flourish.
