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.

Beerenberger (1478) - Fischer, Texas, USA - OCT 8, 2014
Sampled on the Danube - Aroma of sweet malts with a clear golden hue with a lasting whit head and minimal lacing. The taste is malt forward - politely sweet toasted malts with a slightly dry finish. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, not as strong tasting as some Märzens I’ve tasted.

500 ml bottle. BB 07/11/2014. (Merkur) Seiersberg, Austria.
Slightly cloudy pale golden colour with a small white head. Sweetness, malt and mild bread in the aroma. The flavour is mild bitterness, alcohol, malt and some sweetness. Not that tasty.

worldbeertaste (1670) - AUSTRIA - MAY 11, 2014
Nothing much necessary to say about this. Gold, fizzy, p white head. Smells and tastes of corn, pale malt with a. Bitter faint hop finish, whatever.

Senka (502) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 10, 2014
33cl screwtop bottle. Directly from Austria. Thx Robert! Aroma of barley and oats. Sweet, fruity and a dash sugary. Pours pale yellow with frothy head that goes in 5 sec. Lively carbonated, below medium bodied lager. Easy brew and easy to drink.

gunser (55) - HUNGARY - NOV 11, 2013
Szalmasárga szín, vékony fehér hab, ami szinte teljesen eltűnik. Kellemes, enyhén édes, mézes, virágos illat. Mérsékelten szénsavas. Lágy malátás íz, hosszan elnyúló mérsékelt komlózottsággal. Harmónikus, de egyszerű sör.

mile (3033) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 22, 2013
Bottle. Golden, small and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, light caramel and light bread, faint hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, light caramel and light bread. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, light bread and light metal with faint hoppyness. Sweetish märzen with bread - lacks character.
