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.

heavy (2116) - Split, CROATIA - JAN 10, 2008
0.5 l bottle from Spar in Semriach. Poured lighter golden body with medium head. Lemony hops aroma with of course sweet malts present, too. Flavor is slightly sweetish, quite full, pleasantly malted. Relatively long sweet finish. After the first Murauer beer (radler alkoholfrei) I was superstitious that is a bad brewery, but today I saw I was wrong. This is quite good beer for the style, a bit too sweet but nothing unpleasant.
