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.

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

Keg at The Claddagh, Klagenfurt. Aroma is grassy, some citrus. Pours a medium white head. Colour is light gold with medium carbonation. Taste is medium sweet with honey and slight hoppy bitterness. Finish is long and sweet. A well-balanced Austrian märzen with pronounced honey overtones. Fine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

omhper (19308) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 29, 2008
<i>Draught at Schwarzer Rabe, Vienna. </i> Lightly hazy straw colour, small head. Sweert and sugary, mild and creamy with light-medium body. A super mild beer, very restrained in hops. Sweet and creamy in the typical Austrian tradition, and almost without bitterness.
