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.

VinegarStroke (280) - Napa, California, USA - SEP 22, 2013
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.

loubar (89) - Los Gatos, California, USA - NOV 8, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2014 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."
