The Duck-Rabbit Märzen is the lightest of our Germal-style lagers. This is a beer designed for outdoor autumn festivals! Soft malt flavors take center stage here. This one is subtle and beguiling.

Zaprozdower (66) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - SEP 11, 2011
Pours with a fairly thick body and a medium, slightly tan head. Aroma is fantastic, a very rich Octoberfest aroma that is malty and with notes of caramel. As with all duck-rabbit offerings, has a very rich taste. Not the very best of marzen I’ve ever had but very solid and a great example of the style.

TAR (2676) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - SEP 17, 2016
Clear russet. Quick white foam holds merely a wispy collar. Defective nose of DMS, metal, medicine, grape jelly, alcohol, papery malt and candy apples. Loose and fuzzy carbonation deposits a foamy residue on the palate. A strong slickness compounds the oppressive sweetness, as notes of grape jelly collide with poorly cloaked alcohol and gummy-candylike sugars. DMS muddles things, as the incessant sugars continue to punish the tongue. Unrefined malt character brings to mind instant iced tea spiked with malt syrup, and exhibits a profound lack of definition, texture and vividness (evidence that not even a single decoction was employed). Hint of wet paper worsens things. Notes of red licorice, alcohol and Red Delicious apple elevate the sweetness to medicinal levels in the wet and syrupy finish. The usual flaws found in this style are all present here, especially in regards to attenuation and cleanliness. It’s a full-bodied, insufferably sweet sugar bomb with zero nuance and nothing remotely appealing. One sip was all I could handle before down the drain she went.

PorterPounder (7333) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 16, 2016
Tallahassee, Fl. - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - 12 oz bottle. Dark copper pour with a tight khaki colored head that fades after a while. Pleasantaroma of caramel and vanilla. Solidly sweet flavor of molasses, caramel and a bit of toffee. Very full bodied Oktoberfest. Mouthfeel is pleasantly thick and somewhat creamy. Pretty solid.

tillmac62 (685) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - DEC 16, 2015
EBD 11/15. Clear amber pour. Normal head volume, lacing and retention. Typical marzen nose of bready malt - caramel and biscuit. Underneath is a light fruity ester - apple or apricot. Light medium body that is quite smooth in texture. Slightly below normal carbonation with a hint of effervescence in the middle and a noticeable amount in the finish. The flavor profile is quite outstanding. It begins with a rich wave of malt - toasted biscuit and caramel. Sweetness is perfectly balanced and never becomes cloying. The middle has a very subtle bitterness and an equally subtle noble hop earthy flavor. As the finish approaches, the fruit notes are evident as it becomes more grainy with a subtle nut aspect. The finish is a slow fade of slightly sweet noble hop flavor.

chinchill (4270) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 4, 2015
On tap (TCT) at the 2015 Albino Skunk Music Festival. As might be expected from the"dark beer specialist", this looks darker and has a darker roasted malt flavor than usual for style. Otherwise, and overall, this is on style. This includes the aroma which features caramel(?) malts and hops in about equal measure.

nickd717 (4165) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 2, 2015
Draft. Clear copper color with a small white head that lasts. Big caramel aroma, sticky syrup from Aunt Jemima, nuts. Slightly sweet start to the flavor, medium bitterness. A little thick on the feel as DR tends to be, with average carbonation. Above average for the style. Märzens, amirite!

9/23/15. 12oz bottle from a sixer, Five Points. Amber pour with a nice khaki head, good lacing. Nice aroma, lightly malty, hints at caramel, seltzer water, touch of acidity and nuttiness. Good flavor, subtle, nice maltiness, caramel, toasted bread, light nutty aspect, a hint of acidity, doughy. Tasty stuff!
