My Bottom Line:
Toasted malts and herbal hops merge in this fluffy Märzen.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-An airy head of foam covers the clear amber-y golden.
-The flavor profile is balanced.
-This might not be the most memorable brew, but it is agreeable and competently executed.
-Herbal hop bitterness is able to leave a nice impression on the palate.

Antrunk süßlich-neutral Der Hauptteil wird süßlich-vollmundiger mit leicht malziger Note. Dabei aber irgendwie sehr muffig. Der Nachgeschmack ist muffig-süßlich, leicht säuerlich-malzig und doch irgendwie angenehm.
--> Interessantes Märzen. Süffig, süßlich-malzig. Gut trinkbar!

Goss Bräu from the town of Deuerling, which is just east of Regensburg. I can’t find a website for them, though Stahlsturm warned me I might not. But a little googling got me that they won the Silver in 2004 and Gold in 2008 at the World Beer Cup Silver for this beer, their Märzen. I saw that Bierman9 reviewed it here, too.
Color is bright, bright clear amber lots of with orange hues. It has a strong dirty white foam top, in fact, it squirted out the bottle even after sitting for 1 day without movement.
Aroma is typical Münchner, toasty malts, very aromatic even 20 minutes after sitting neglected while type this up. I smell a hint of hop bitterness, Noble hops like Tettnanger or Hersbrücke.
The flavor is sweet, quite sweet Caramunich or simply Münchner malt maltiness, toasted, roasted caramel malts and other flavors such, neither figs nor dates but something similar with such intense sweetness. I feel like Vienna malts are highly present, and a search on Hobbybrauer.de shows that truly it’s a major part of a typical Märzen recipe. The front has a light sourness, but the sides and middle are all syrupy malt flavors. iI’s sweetness is more balanced out with some bitterness around the center and back of the tongue. The aftertaste is all sweet malts, kind of like sucking on a malt-sicle with a slight hop floral flavor instead of chocolate on top. It’s also not a tad less sickly sweet as Eichhofener’s Festbier. I can see why this beer won Gold and Silver, though I might have upped the IBUs just a wee bit. Nonetheless, in order to drink more and finish the bottle, I find myself forcing the beer over the front of the tongue to get more of the sour/tart notes and swirl it over the center of the tongue to find more bitterness; otherwise, it’s just too sweet.

Bottle. Thanks Hart. Pours orange-amber with a large, soda-like head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is weak. Bready, light fruit and light apple there as well. Taste is light sweet with tones of caramel, breadiness, fruit. Finishes with some grassy hops and a hint of spiciness. Palate is a bit sticky, medium light, light on carbonation.
