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.

Gangstergafje (698) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - OCT 9, 2016
The beer has a simple look. The color of the beer is a nice golden yellow. The beer is absolutely crystal clear. Some bubles can be seen rising towards the top, not a lot though. On top of the beer, a nice layer of rough white foam is formed. The bulk of the foam disappears like snow in the summer. A thin white drape is left. The smell of the beer is nice. There is a lovely hop aroma. This gives a bitter smell. There is also a lovely sweet fruitiness to. The smell is simple though. There is also a nice small almond aroma, which suits the other smells very good. The taste is a bit less. It’s very bitter, a bit outback of balance. It misses the sweet fruity counterpart. A pitty, however at not bad. The nice almond is also present in the taste. The palate of the beer is nice. The beer has a nice amount of gas in it. All in all, a nice beer.

Bottled - Clear golden colour, small and fast fading white head. Malty aromas of cereals, breadcrust and some hay. Taste is malty with breadcrust and hay, some low grassy hops. Light body, average carbonation, slick texture, dry and empty finish. Not so bad but its far from good.

strap (751) - Sindelfingen, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - AUG 20, 2016
Standard marzen...slightly malty,slightly skunky aroma...but what else do you drink in Austria when you're in a small town that doesn't have Bevog? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hauxe (443) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - AUG 17, 2016
Pours gold from a big green can. Minimal grassy aroma. Flavor is lightly sweet, lightly herbal. Some corn taste although no corn was added. The carbonation rapidly subsides to a level well lower than average for a beer of the style. Feels flat and lifeless, kind of like picking up and finishing a beer you forgot about two hours earlier. Not a success.
