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!

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUL 19, 2011
It’s warm golden with a creamy, white head, and the aroma has notes of vegetables and malt. The flavour is moderately sweet with notes of malt, straw/hay, light fruit, and the finish is dry.

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 (9448) - Ottobrunn, 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).

jonas (6858) - 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.

EithCubes (5633) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 11, 2011
Bottle by 21.02.12. Malty nose, clear pale golden pour with a soapy off-white head. Taste is predominately sweet with a tough of bitterness rushing in with the carbonation. Prickle of light toasted grain toward the end, and a distinct alcohol note; aftertaste has a sudden surge of absolutely gorgeous fresh bread. Medium body with a persistently aggressive mouthfeel, slightly floral. A good one.

Miksu (5046) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - DEC 21, 2011
0.5 l bottle, thanks Timo A! Deep golden color. Sweet bready and honeyish aroma. Bready and honeyish taste with delicate herbal hoppiness. Medium ody, fairly drinkable. Not bad, just ordinary.
