Fruity aroma with a malty aftertaste. Nice head with a bit of body as it goes down. Great with food.

Oakes (13659) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 15, 2009
Reddish-brown colour. Very toasty aroma - quite appetizing with a hint of chocolate. Metallic on the palate a bit, with hints of chocolate and light toastiness. Complex, nice lager.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUN 29, 2009
Draft at brewery. Served in a krug, and appears as dark golden. This and the lager were both fabulous and shared many elements in common. Both were liquid bread and balanced, and both had big juicy palates. I found the märzen to have a sweeter, fruitier malt background versus the intense toastiness of the lager but both had a similarly delicious burnt breadcrust flavor. Absolutely impressive.

KyotoLefty (7975) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 4, 2015
Bottle from the brewery. Glowing dark orange with a low head. A bit darker than the lagerbier. Clear. Caramel and peach in the nose, a touch of smoke. Flavor is caramel, rye bread, peaches. Smooth and light yet full bodied. Very bitter and herbal like the lager, though not as much so.

pivnizub (9482) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUL 1, 2009
Draught: Seems to be deep golden, medium-sized, lacy white head, solid sweet-malty and delicate hoppy nose; solid sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied, smooth; juicy malt, indeed, in the lingering sweet-bitter finish. Knoblach is good........
Earlier Rating: 8/21/2005 Total Score: 3.4
Bottle (Vroni’s Bamberg) Light amber coloured, thin, lasting off-white firm head; fruity (honey, plums) and malty aroma, combined with some herbal hoppiness, some smoky or wooden notes ?!?!? Soft, sweetish, fruity beginning; mild bitter-sweet flavour; dry, bitter and "barrique-like" aftertaste, long lasting. A very good and very unusual example of a franconian Lager !

MiP (14519) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 5, 2009
Draught at the brewpub. Seems to be clear dark golden in the mug. Small white head. Good malty flavour, not so bitter. On the malty side and very pleasant.

Koelschtrinker (13640) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 18, 2011
Würziger und dunkler Antrunk mit stimmigen Malznoten, die zu einem geringen Anteil karamellig werden. Der Hopfen sowie die deutlich milder folgende Herbe sind stimmig, das Bier wirkt sehr frisch. Im Abgang nun vor allem hopfig, darunter stimmig malzig mit ebenfalls dunklen Zügen. 7/12/11/12//11

MartinT (8661) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 1, 2011
My Bottom Line :
Subtly toasted and caramelized cereals are balanced out by wooden hops in this eminently drinkable Märzen.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A slice of foam tops the krug.
-The soft carbonation and lean sugars make for high drinkability, perhaps this beer’s best feature.
-This did not feel stronger than their remarkable Ungespundet Lagerbier.
-The flavor profile may not be the most memorable, but it is competently put together and pleasant to drink by the pint.

On tap at the brewery gasthof.

maekchu (2836) - Hirakata, JAPAN - APR 8, 2015
Bottle. Thanks to KyotoLefty. Thick malty nose, with some grass, light honey, and a touch of smoke. Dark amber color. Malty and toasty initial, rich but not overdone fruit and grass, very little smoke in flavor. Rich and pleasant. Could probably use a little more smoke.

downender (7149) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2014
At the brewpub, 12 August 2014. Deep gold in colour with a decent, white, head. This was similar to the same brewery’s Lagerbier, being slightly less bitter with some more fruit evident. Very good.
