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.

50 cl bottle. Forget to take notes and won’t try this beer again. Just another austrian Märzen. Nothing special

pityu (461) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 7, 2015
Bottle - Clear yellow colour, thin white head, not persistent, no lacing. Aroma is a bit skunky first, then sweet maltiness, hay, no hops. Taste is too sweet, very low hop bitterness. Some fruitiness from malts, but too plain, too empty. Light body, moderate carbonation, too sweet watery aftertaste. Not recommended.

Cristobal37 (533) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 29, 2015
Very pale yellow. Thirst quenching light body marzen. Minimal to no head nor aroma. Taste of malts and sadly an odd bitterness that isnt hoppy but kinda funky. Soet of enjoyable, but easy to drink nevertheless.

KyotoLefty (8369) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 23, 2015
Bottle. Deep, shiny golf, effervescent. Malty nose, lightly fruity. Rich, malty flavor, touch of lemon and some bread. Rather plain, but nice drinking.

MarkoNm (1992) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - AUG 20, 2015
Pours a clear golden color, topped with a decently sized frothy head, white in color. Grainy malt aroma with some bready notes. Taste is sweet, malty and slightly bready, some final bitterness is present, but very gentle. A bit metallic in the aftertaste. Not the best one definitely. Still, manageable.

Eines der besten österreichischen Biere und dazu von einer unabhängigen Brauerei. Vollmundig, genau mein Geschmack und noch dazu sehr verträglich. Ich liebe es.

Slightly creamy texture with a slightly hoppy character. Really well balanced, but the aroma is basically like water.
