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!

omhper (19374) - 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.

yngwie (13558) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 7, 2010
Bottle, courtesy of fonefan. A clear, golden beer with a finger-thick white head. Malty nose with some fruity, hoppy scents. Sweet initial flavor, but it dries up nicely, a pity the flavor is so uninteresting. Decent bitterness showing up towards the end. Mostly grainy flavor though. It wouldn’t be a problem downing a few of these, but I don’t feel an urge to do so. 100814

Dark golden with a lasting white head. Fine and clean malty aroma of grain and bread, with a grassy note. Sweet bread and caramel flavour.
