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.

Bottle: Amber with slight haze. Frothy white head that dissipates quickly. Honey, caramel, malty aromas. Darker malt spectrum moving to a heavier profile rather than fresh. Dry rather than sweet. Bitter finish. Not sour but crisp mid palate.good wieght but coarse.

Pour is a clear copper with a small white head. Aroma is on ok malty bread with some caramel notes. Flavor is more of some light bready malt with a little sweetness on the back end. Decent but nothing spectacular as the malt is there but a bit too light for my liking.

It pours light amber with an off white head. The aroma had rich malt, nuttiness, toffee and full caramel. It has a medium body with light carbonation. The taste is like the aroma with lots of lager smoothness, spice and some mush. Decent.

brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 3, 2016
On tap @ Sudwerk Dock Store. Clear amber colored beer with a finger of white foam. Bread, toast, and biscuit malt aromas. There’s a light spice and leafy, floral hop quality to it, too. Maybe a touch earthy in terms of the flavor. Light bitterness, some sweet malt, and a touch of orange peel. Maybe a very subtle acidity. Decent enough.

Not much in the aroma other than what seems like raw pumpkin. Slightly murky orange amber color with a small bubbly white head. Flavor is toasted wood and some more very slightly vegetal gourd. There’s a light sugary sweetness that seems separated from the rest of the flavor that finally resolves into more of a caramel sweetness. Hops are evident but also seem strangely disconnected from the rest of the flavor. Finishes a bit watery with lasting bitterness and some sweetness. There’s very little here that reminds me of a Marzen. My label looks different from the photo here, so it makes me wonder if this is a different/new version. Although this seems to be a somewhat disjointed beer, it’s not bad overall. I’d like to try this fresh from the brewery to see if this one’s just off since Sudwerk is a find brewery.

tightslice (1001) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAY 9, 2015
On tap at Evernote. Malts up front with a nutty finish... there’s something in the mid-palate that’s bitter / herbal that I didn’t care for, otherwise pretty good especially the finish.

loubar (157) - Los Gatos, California, USA - NOV 8, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2015 12 oz. bottle from Whole Foods. Nose of yeast with some toast. Taste of light caramel, molasses and bread. Very smooth and a bit sweet. No floral or citrus hops here. Slight bitterness is dominated by a rich, smooth malt. Soft carbonation. Easy to drink and very satisfying. One was definitely not enough...

"of course since this one is (before I rate it) the lowest scoring SW beer...i liked it best. but i was not alone...the 4 of us that were there all thought this beer, along with the XP were tops, with the pale ale and hefe bringing up the rear. fits the style to a tee...not incredibly exciting, but good on a cool day. nice, crisp malt character. well balanced."
