COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Choice hops and five different specialty malts are combined to produce this rich, amber and copper-toned lager. Sweeter in flavor than Sudwerk’s other core offerings, the Märzen has a full robust character with a smooth, zen-like finish.

Clear copper color with no head. Aroma of caramel, nuts, and toasted malt. Rich caramel flavor with nuts and toasted malt. Really nice beer for the style.

BenH (2461) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 22, 2011
From bottle. Pours amber-orange with no head. Rich malt aroma. Taste is malt perfection, very rich, caramel and toffee. Sweet on the palate. Could do with a head on this. Excellent marzen though

tommann (2816) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2011
355ml bottle. Pours dark orange with a small head. Aroma is caramel, slightly burnt with a touch of apple. Taste has some toffee to start. Short finish with some apple.

DanielBrown (3897) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2011
Bottle from Stirchley Wines, Birmingham. Amber colour, fizzing, departing head. Sweet, barley sugar aroma. Very pleasant - balanced dryness and sugar hover on the tongue. Short finish, but tight and refreshing.

ben4321 (4066) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 20, 2011
Location: 12 oz bottle from Colonial Wine and Spirits, 9/20/11

Aroma: The nose is caramel malts, some roast, nutty notes, and a little bit of earth
Appearance: The pour is a clear caramel color with bubbly white head and drops of lace
Flavor: The taste is malty like the nose, rich caramel malts and some light-medium sweetness
Palate: The body is medium, with an average carbonation, a decent mouthfeel, and a slightly dry finish
Overall Impression: This is another solidly made German-style lager from these guys. The ones I’ve tried thus far haven’t been overwhelmingly good, but they have been both true to style and well made. This one fits that bill as well.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2011
12oz. Bottle: Lightly sweet aroma of malt, grain, mash, bread, and toasted toffee. Poured amber in color with a tiny, rocky, off-white head that disappeared very quickly, except for around the edges. Clear. Sparkling. Flavor is medium sweet. Tastes of malt, bread, and grain. Medium body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Malt, grain, bread finish.

AshtonMcCobb (2826) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 2, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2011 Re-rate - loads of cherries as well as stewed apples on the nose this time. Good malt profile, toffee plus bitter finish. A bit like a bitter done with lager yeast. Creamy, spicy, fruity finish! A dropped point on the appearance. Previous rating 02/09/11 7/5/7/5/15 = 3.9 355ml bottle. Pours a lovely orangey-red colour reiniscent of plum jam. There is a lovely head. The nose has delicate smoke and stewed apples. The taste has plum jam and a gentle smokiness. The palate is medium to large in structure, there’s a gorgeous tangy and creamy texture with a nice elegant clean finish. Overall, I really like this, so interesting but also so well balanced.

JohnRMurdoch (3367) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - AUG 26, 2011
Bottle from Appellation Wines. Vegetable resin aroma. Clear reddish amber brown colour, reasonable head. Resin caramelr flavour, creamy texture. Not bad.

cheap (4174) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2011
Looks creamy smells rather sweet. Taste is big malt. Creamy co2 commences to a palate then fades to flat. Strong alky bitter malt impact at the finish of each slug. Bready creamy. Must be more than 6%.

futre7 (145) - Taipei, TAIWAN - JUL 16, 2011
Nose is toasted malts, bread and caramel. I don’t know the pour as I drank it straight down from the bottle. Taste again has caramel and toasted malty taste. The finish is a little like malt loaf. It’s a very enjoyable Marzen. Not the best I’ve had but a brave effort from the Americans.
