Clear gold, medium white head. Sweet and malty, light body. Finishes a bit overly sweet. Not to my taste.

Maker: Schloßbrauerei Irlbach, Irlbach, Germany Beer: Irlbacher Goaßkopf Halbe Ur-Märzen Style: Oktoberfest beer/Märzen ALC.VOL.: 5.6% Colour: yellow golden, clear, decent fluffy head Nose: Sour bread, barley Texture: A little rough, not too watery, a wee bit oily, relatively low carbonation. Medium body. Taste: Caramel, plenty of malt, very limited hops - bread notes at first. Neither truly sweet nor truly bitter. No fruit. Malt dominates the middle and finish, bitterness is minimal. A little bit more bitter (without ever being hoppy) in the aftertaste, but agaibn grains dominate. Impressions: Rather undistinguished Märzen, limited range and depth of taste. Drinkable though, with well-integrated alcohol.

MichaelAwesome (5852) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - NOV 22, 2014
Unspektakuläres Piwo mit ein bisschen Brot, etwas Karamell und ein paar Malzen. Recht einfach gehalten, trinkbar, nichts Besonderes.

McTapps (5853) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - NOV 21, 2014
Bottle from Getränkemarkt Fristo in Bamberg. The beer has got a deep golden colour with steady low head and medium body. Aroma of grains, honey and white bread. Taste of mild hops, light wheat, mild honey, bread and straw. Light grainy finish. Easy drinkable and solid in its own way, yet nothing special.

# 3466 ersma: "original ur-märzen 1516" nennt sich das gnaze im untertitel. was ein ur-märzen ist, und was das mit 1516 zu tun hat, wird nicht näher erläutert. bernsteinfarben, marginal trübe mit eher mäßiger verschäumung. der geruch ist leicht süßlich, melassig. dazu etwas säuerlichkeit. der antrunk ist malzig, getreidig und recht perlig im mund. die mitte wird etwas blasser, es kommt allerdings ein hauch hopfen hinzu. der abgang ist eher dünn, etwas malzsüße, ein hauch hopfen. die flasche - oje... fazit: hat vielleicht seinen grund, warum das "ur-märzen" lange nicht gebraut wurde. könnte man auch zukünftig ohne großen verlust dem vergessen anheim stellen. 9,8,7,6,4,7 - 7,05

Marduk (4072) - Reval, ESTONIA - JUN 9, 2014
500ml bottle. Clear dark golden color. Medium size head, stays. Metallic, shit, wheat in aroma. Dusty malts, flourish, faint roast in taste. Weird sidetaste. Bland.

FatPhil (10996) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 29, 2014
500ml bottle (Irlbacher Bar, Riga)
Nice rich orange, tight but quite brief head. Simple papery malty aroma. Tapery taste. Atenuation high, high for a 5.6% Marzen. Dry and husky finish, a bit rough. No sign of 5.6%, at least.

pivnizub (9444) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - APR 8, 2014
Bouteille: Deep golden with a small and stable creamy white head; moderate sweet-bitter honeyish to grainy nose; moderate to robust sweet-bitter flavour, almost medium bodied; lingering bisquity and hoppy-bitter finish. Not a very aromatic, but a solid and crunchy thirst-quencher…

Quack-Duck (8674) - Down South, GERMANY - MAR 2, 2014
bottle from Bierzerg. Golden colour, mid-sized white head. Malty with some shy hops, grassy and slightly cardboardy. Nothing exceptional, just another lager.

kappldav123 (5512) - GERMANY - MAR 2, 2014
Bottle looks okay, a bit complex. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Starts fine spicy. A bit metallically, more and more moldy. Finish could be more balanced. Okay, but not more.
