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.

I enjoyed this! Aroma is very malty and nutty. So far so good. The color is an orangish/amber color with a off-white head with tons of little bubbles. Taste is malty, slightly nutty and overall very pleasing. Very nice beer!

On tap at the brewpub. Dark amber in color with a white head. Complete lack of an aroma. Medium malt sweetness. This lager seems much lighter in flavor than the coor would suggest. Tongue tingly finish without very much aftertaste.

I went to the restaurant last night and while I’m not much of a fan of German lagers this one was actually pretty good. I never expected to find a German ber this aromatic, dark and flavorful. Pretty good.

Bottle: Coppery in color, moderate to large off-white head, foamy, fairly nice lacing, light carbonation.   Bready nose, malty, hint of grain.   Somewhat boring at less than room temp, but as it warms some very subtle dark pitted fruit emerges.   Moderate body and mouthfeel, although it nears the thin side.   Somewhat funky finish, a bit more grainy and fuesel than I care for.   Not bad, certainly better than lots of other examples.

Draft from Mar 05 visit to Sac/Davis. Copper color with decent head. Sweet malty nose and flavor, but not over the top. Seemed kinda thin for a marzen. A good beer, but didn’t strike me as a wow-beer.

Bottled. Pours a light amber color. Nose is sweet and malty. Flavor is malty and sweet. Has some sweet fruity qualities as well. well rounded marzen. One of the better ones that I’ve had.

much better commercial beer than the GB, Nice toast and cramel malts some prune and date on the palate with a gentl vanilla hiding behind. soft and clean session beer well done.

Aubrey (3430) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JAN 10, 2005
Deep copper hue. Sweet malt base (caramel), but it’s kind of subtle. Very toasty and bready. Healthy amount of bitterness. Dryish finish. Very easy to drink, but it’s also easy to read, so I lost interest fast. That said, it would still make a good session beer.

(12 oz bottle: Safeway in Petaluma, CA) Right out of the starting gate, the aroma suggests a solid Marzen is about to please me to no end. It smells very malty, like taking a tour of a brewery, but not sweet or perfumy like so many others American entries in this category. And oh man, this tastes pretty damn good too. Very malty, again reminiscent of a brewery, like sampling some wort. It’s moderately sweet, but not sugary, which again seems to characterize so many others in the style. Mild bitterness lends some balance, but still allows the malt the spotlight. Medium to full bodied for the style with a full, round mouthfeel. Beautiful dark amber color, bordering on a light ruddy brown. Off-white head pours about an inch in height, and exhibits pretty solid retention, slowly receding to a thin topping and holding there. A big initial ring of lace is left on the glass, and then large patches decorate the glass under the top ring. This is a pretty damn good beer, worth buying more than just a single bottle, and I think I’ll start sending this out as bonus beers in my trades.

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2005 On tap @ the brewery. Fantastic glossy mahogany coloring. Somewhat thin malt taste with a lasting dryness. Not the best Marzen I’ve tried but far from the worst.
