COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Unser Bier für den absoluten Kenner. Eine Spezialität, die noch aus der Zeit vor der industriellen Revolution stammt, als es noch keine Kältemaschinen gab. Damals wurde im Monat März das letzte Bier eingebraut (daher natürlich der Name Märzen), da im Sommer keine Kühlung möglich war. Dieses „letzte Bier“ musste stärker eingebraut werden, um einen höheren Alkoholgehalt zu erreichen, da Alkohol ein natürliches Konservierungsmittel ist. Dieses Bier wurde dann im Sommer auf den Festen und Kirchweihen getrunken. Diesen Ursprung will unser Märzen nicht leugnen. Ein kräftiges, vollmundiges, bernsteinfarbenes Bier, sehr süffig. Der Höhepunkt jeder Kirchweih!

jonas (5737) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - AUG 24, 2009
Bottle. Thanks pivnizub! Light aroma, a hint apple juice. Golden, fine bubbles, low head. Fruite entry, minerals, grassy dry balance, quick finish, light clementine retronasal. Medium to light body, less chewy than I expect from a Märzen.

Bottle: Clear, amber coloured, small - quickly diminishing - fluffy white head; almondy, bisquity nose with a faint tinge of hops; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied, quite smooth; shorter sweetish-bisquity finish with a light bitterness in the aftertaste. Good Märzen.........

MoritzF (8590) - Bochum, GERMANY - JUN 6, 2009
(bottle) Clear, deep golden colour with a big and slightly off-white foamy head. Sweet biscuity malty aroma with a light toasty touch and a soft spicy hoppy blend. Moderately sweet flavour, medium to light bodied with a well-carbonated mouthfeel. Solid malty, slightly bready and biscuity taste with shy herbal accents; sweet-bitter malt-accented finish with shy traces of alcohol and herbal hops. Classical Märzen, pretty good (06.VI.09).

Bottle. Deep golden color. Malty sweet flavor with hints of biscuit and peach. Medium to full bodied, almost thick mouthfeel. Clean. Fruity aftertaste. Soft maltaroma. Pleasant märzen.

omhper (19803) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 11, 2002
My absolute favourite among märzens. Overwhelmingly soft maltness, discrete balnced flavours, and leaves you craving more. Even though I’ve only tried this once, it has etched itself onto my mind.
