(aka Calwer Eck-Schlafly Collaboration brew. Backlog retrieved from notes, 0711 chapter) Had this by the complimentary pitcher when Schlafly’s brewer was invited to visit sister city Stuttgart in 2010 as part of the St.Louis mayoral delegation on the occasion of their 50th partnership celebration. Combined the upfront goodness of a US dryhop with Calwer Eck’s Braumeister Märzen: German balance in a prime sessioning Keller, including a full range of bready spice, zest and even vanilla. Sweetish, in tune with SW-German customs, but very nice. Rare visits at Calwer Eck nowadays make me long for this unique, one-occasion brew, as unfortunately their regular offerings couldn’t be more lacklustre and soggy.

Thick foam. Sweet, almost like extract. Not too bitter. Pretty tasty. Sampled at hop in the city 2013.

Narnad (1458) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2013
Copper color with a low white head and a very low amount of carbonation. Aroma has a light Munich malt, light apple, and a light grainy malt presence late. Flavor starts off with a strong apple flavor, modest munich malt kick in the middle with a sweet raisin/date ending. Body is light. Overall an okay beer. The malt didn’t participate in the flavor as much as one would expect. I have never had a raisin flavor come through in a marzen, kinda neat in that respect as it works very nicely. I could tell this was dry hopped.

On tap at the Schlafly Tap Room. Comes clear amber with a small biege head. Aroma of malt, fruit, and pine. Taste is malt, caramel, citrus, grain, and spice. Not too sweet. Very nice.

Tasted on-tap 9/17/2011 at the Hop in the City Festival in a clean half-pint taster glass. Marketed as " Trocken Hopfen Märzen" today. Märzen is the style upon which popular Oktoberfest beers are based. This one is deliberately hoppier, Americanized interpretation. The results are good. Thankfully, Schlafly stuck with noble German hops. Nearly everyone loves a sweet, amber German lager. This one’s just a bit more bitter-sweet. I could drink a bunch of these.

Sampler at the W&C in Ballwin, Mo. It poured an amber color with an off- white head. The aroma was mostly malty, somewhat piney and had hints of fruitiness. The flavor was malty, with spices and caramels, but not very fruity, just a very decent balance of all combined ingredients. This was a very good brew and hopefully the Schlafly brewers will get it back on line.

What the hell is with the name of this thing? It was on tap at Hop in the City 2010 under the name Trocken Hopfen Marzen (apologies for the missing umlauts), with the same description. I had no idea St. Louis and Stuttgart were sister cities, by the way. Anyway, this one pours a clear amber-gold color with a small eggshell white head. Aroma was surprisingly fruity, with apples, apricots, and pineapple hitting before notes of bready malts, grains, and the kind of hops that show up in a lot of Bavarian beers. Flavor was not as fruity, but had a nice balance of the same fruits mentioned above with bready malts, mild spice, hops, cereal, and toast. Medium-bodied, with average carbonation and a malty mouthfeel. Finishes dry. I liked this beer a lot more than I thought I would; put it back on soon, Schlafly.

Pours crystal clear amber with an off-white head. The aroma has toasty malt that is softer than most marzens, light pine, a touch of sweetness and dry bread. Medium crisp body with moderate carbonation. The flavor starts with toasty malt, some cracker, light spice and some caramel. The finish is dry and clean. Pretty nice for a Märzen.
