Kräftig wie die Farbe ist auch der Geschmack unseres Märzen. Früher dauerte das Braujahr von September bis April. Märzenbier wurde im März stärker eingebraut und während der braufreien Zeit ausgeschenkt.

Formerly Josefsbräu Märzen.

McTapps (5553) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - APR 16, 2013
Deep golden colour with low ehad and medium body. Nose of malt. Taste of mild hops, bitter oranges, hay, cloves, thyme and ripe grains. Easy to drink, goes down very well and is really quaffable and refreshing. Good and solid beer but just no big burner.

Shaney (2425) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - MAR 21, 2013
Bernsteinfarben, mächtige Schaumbildung. Karamell, Toffee, Fudge, Hefe im Aroma und im lieblich-malzig dominierten Geschmack. Verhaltene Hopfenherbe. Sehr harmonisches und süffiges Märzen. Gut!

Sorry for the german rating, but this is a lousy rating from my "newbie" time (2007-2009), and it’s not worth of being translated. I just added it for the statistics, and to complete my backlog!
Im Glas zeigt sich ein ein schönes, hellbraunes Märzen. Leicht trüb, mit einer schönen mittelporigen Krone. Geruchlich zeigt sich das Bier vor allem säuerlich, mit einer leicht würzigen Note. Der Antrunk ist würzig, mit einem Touch von Nelke, aber diese Säuerlichkeit verdirbt den ganzen Geschmack.

kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 9, 2011
Soso eine Behindertengerechte Brauerei! Interessant! Das Märzen hat eine kräftige gold-bräunliche Farbe und der Schaum hält mittelmäßig. Es riecht malzig süß leicht nach Kirschwein. Geschmacklich sehr süß aber Süffig. Schöne amber note, süß- malzig intensiv. Sehr gutes Märzen!

MiP (14433) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 3, 2009
Bottle, 5.6%. Weak spicy hop aroma. Clear amber colour. Small creamy head. The flavour has the same spicy hoppiness as the aroma with a little caramel. It is also a little watery, especially considering the rather high ABV.

yespr (34797) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 28, 2008

YogiBeera (2542) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 26, 2006
Another goodie from MoritzF! Amber color, small head, fizzy carbonation. Band aid, carmamel and light nut nose. Nutty and honeyish tate - very nice.

bierkoning (11041) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAY 10, 2006
Swing top bottle from Pivnizub. Orange amber color, malt and licorice in the aroma. Malty sweet flavor with cinnamon, plums and licorice. Medium to full bodied. Tasty märzen!

Sweet grainy nose, amber, foamy spongy head. Honey and caramelish malt, light cinnamon end. Full body. Sweeter than not, but decent overall.
