COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
La Doble Malta es lo que le da a Voll-Damm su inconfundible fuerza, cuerpo y sabor. Doble Malta es la seña de identidad de esta cerveza.

El hecho de añadir el doble de malta a la cerveza, es una solución hallada en el siglo XIX para la conservación de la cerveza. Cuando el buen tiempo llegaba, la producción de cerveza se detenía debido a las altas temperaturas, que no permitían la correcta fermentación del mosto con la levadura. Para contrarrestar sus efectos en el último lote, el de marzo, se le añadía el doble de malta para que pudiera aguantar todo el verano sin echarse a perder. De ahí el nombre Märzenbier (Cerveza de Marzo).

El primer lote de estas cervezas solía abrirse coincidiendo con el Oktoberfest, la fiesta de octubre celebrada en Munich dónde la cerveza era el centro de la celebración. Las Märzenbier, como Voll-Damm, son la estrella de esta fiesta que se ha convertido en el acontecimiento cervecero más importante del mundo.

tbonde (289) - DENMARK - FEB 21, 2016
33 cl bottle@Barcelon Airport in straight glass@approx 5 degrees C (too cold) Pours clear golden amber with white head with OK retention. Aroma dominated by malt but with some vegetable notes. Low to medium carbonation and medium body. Taste dominated by roasted malt with alcohol sweetness clearly present. Hops hidden far away till the aftertaste, where it comes in to give some kind of balance to the malt. Gets a little better as it warms up. Not unpleasant, but not very interesting either

Aleixxercavins (4) - SPAIN - JAN 21, 2016 does not count
Bona cervesa. Amargosa i amb bon cos. Color més fosc a causa de la doble malta i a més amb una graduació de 7’5°. Molt bona tant amb amics com per a ser beguda a casa.

No está mal. Notas dulces a caramelo, y pequeño amargor final, una cerveza correcta.

maekchu (3304) - Hirakata, JAPAN - NOV 17, 2015
Bottle from local Liquor Mountain store. Light sweet malty nose, grainy, with light fumes. Medium amber color, thin white head. Sweetish initial, with caramel, corn, and mild spiciness in the finish. Thin body. The noticeable alcohol and the sweetness are both minuses. It’s labeled as a marzen but seems more like a badly-made bock.

KyotoLefty (8907) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 11, 2015
Bottle from Liquor Mountain. Extremely fruity, biscuity, swet nos, peach, orang, honey. Deep golden orange, low head. Sweet and malty, lots of honey ans biscuts and estery fruits, peach, orange, melon. Nice tingly, peppery hop finish. Honestly, this is rather like a Maibock. Maybe a bit corny. Gets worse as it warms. Nt trrible, though it is somewhat rough.
