COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Der Klassiker aus Murau
Das Murauer Märzen Bier schmeckt harmonisch, ausgewogen malzig und ist mild hopfenbitter. Außerdem hat es eine charakteristische goldgelbe Farbe. Das Murauer Märzen hat eine Stammwürze von 12,2°, einen Alkoholgehalt von 5,2% und einen Brennwert von 450 kcal/Liter.

Das Murauer Märzen macht 90% der gesamten Bierproduktion aus und ist somit der "Star" im Biersortiment der Brauerei Murau und wurde bereits 1994 als das beste Bier Österreichs ausgezeichnet (Zeitschrift "News"). Der Name "Märzen" stammt aus einer Zeit, in der die Würze mittels Eis und Schnee gekühlt werden musste, um vergoren werden zu können. So war man gezwungen, Eis und Schnee in den Kellern zu lagern und legte so einen Eisvorrat an. Dieser Vorrat reichte meist bis März. Daraus ergab sich, dass man nur bis "März" Bier brauen konnte, wovon sich der Name "Märzen" ableitet.

tkrjukoff (4020) - SWEDEN - NOV 9, 2010
Pours clear amber - beautiful color - with off white head leaving some lacing on the glass. Sweet aroma of malts, bread, caramel with notes of sour and citric plus hay. Lean crispy mouthfeel. Flavor is acidy sour, sweet, malty and bread with tones of floral and herbs. Nice sourish palate feel. Finishes malty sweet with some bitter hoppyness.

Vhodný dárek z Rakouska, tatík nezarmoutil. Pořád ale ještě nejsem takovej borec, abych Marzen poznal od Pilseneru.

dreamloomer (66) - Warsaw, POLAND - AUG 7, 2010
The color is way too light. Almost no head. Strong hoppy aroma. Nice malty notes in taste, but there is almost no bitterness at all. Nice and refreshing, but nothing spectacular.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown! / Waikato, NEW ZEALAND - APR 13, 2010

Marko (3878) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 4, 2010
0.33l twist off bottle from somewhere in Graz, as Murauer Bier. Poured a quite pale golden body with a small head. Weak nose, slightly herbal carrying some maltiness too. Light taste, slightly bready maltiness, slightly herbal, kinda salty hopiness. Slightly soapy and a teeny tiny bit of metal. Not all that bad, but not the greatest Austrian "märzen" there is in my opinion.
