Der Inbegriff für österreichisches Märzenbier macht etwa 70% des Ausstosses der Gösser Brauerei aus und ist Österreichs beliebstestes Märzenbier. Das untergärige, helle Vollbier ist in der Farbe strohgelb und im Duft hefig-malzig. Der Antrunk ist von deutlichen Malztönen geprägt. Eine leichte, angenehme Hopfennote rundet den harmonischen Geschmack von Gösser Märzen ab.

Leighton (11889) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2011
Bottle at our hotel in Bratislava. Ah, morning beer! Pours clear, bright gold with a weak, white head. Light cereal and other dusty malts in the aroma, some faint citrus zest. Light sweet flavor, light bread, some kind of odd plastic or flowers or something, light straw bitterness. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Pretty crisp to finish, plastic-like lemon, light cereal, dusty hay. Nothing special here.

Canned, thanks oh6gdx! Clear pale golden, brief head. Dusty fruity nose. Sweet with light-medium body and clean, roudned mouthfeel. Some raisiny malt before a dusty finish. Better than average for a Brau Union beer...

tomciccateri (1021) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - DEC 21, 2011
33cl can at Vienna grocery store. Clear gold color with no head, continuous fine bubbles. Surprising slight hop aroma and bitterness for a Märzen. Light-to-medium body. Moderately carbonated mouthfeel. Lacking main taste and finish.

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2013 Vom Faß at Gösser Bierklinik in Vienna. Golden colour with a white head. Light grain with a nice hoppy aroma. Medium sweetness with a pleasant bitterness. A fresh and nice Märzen.

laiti (5970) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 14, 2011
33 cl can @ 30000 feet over Twer, I guess. BBE 04/2012, rated on 4.9.2011
Aroma is sweet with corn-like malt. Also some grain and hints of cardboard. Flavour is also sweet with corn-like malt. Palate is sticky-ish and watery. Too sweet, too much corn, too low on hops, feels like starch bulk lager and not märzen at all.

5L keg. Found this for 11€, expiry date dec. 2011. Well, was expetng more from a Marzen, and i was disappointed. In fact there’s no difference from a classic lager. Clear yellow body with creamy white head. Bland aroma of weak malts and some vegetables. Light hoppiness, thin body, a bit watery, low carbonation, easy to drink, average.
