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.

Bottle from Bar Parajes, Castellon de la Plana. Pours amber, quite hoppy and floral with a malt background. Easy drinking.

Benzai (9915) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 22, 2014
Can @ weekly tasting shared by Dutchdrebus. Clear orange to dark golden color, average sized white to off-white head that diminishes quickly but leaves fair lacing. Smell and taste malts, sweetish malts, lightly alcohol and something weird in the background. Average body and carbonation. A bit strong for an Oktoberfest/Märzen and not very good imo.

bierkoning (11044) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - DEC 12, 2014
Bottle. Deep golden color. Bready, floral, slightly oily aroma. Malty sweet, perfumed floral flavor. Grapes, apple. Too perfumed to be enjoyable.

cervmagpt (395) - PORTUGAL - DEC 1, 2014
Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 3B). Bottle 25 cl - Batch L2812B13. AROMA: cornish aroma with some rice notes and a mild sweet background. clean lager profile with some sulphur. APPEARANCE: slight dark yellow color and translucent. thin white head with below-average retention. TASTE: initial sweet malty character with moderate bitterness and a semi-dry finish. low malty complexity. PALATE: medium-low body with medium-low carbonation. OVERALL: a marzen wannabe without complexity.

While this brew is alright overall, it doesn't seem to know what it's trying to be. Crossover between a malt liquor, a Marzen, an imperial pils, kinda all over the place. Smells alright of corn/grain, caramel malt, strong pungent grassy hops, flavorful but not quite appetizing. Appearance is average, a clear tarnished gold color, soapy white head, not all that appetizing either. Taste is a bit better, features a overly sugary caramel maltiness, strong grassy marzen-style bitterness, and interesting vanilla and citrus accents. Negative corn adjunct notes though. Palate is average, light bodied, smooth with less carbonation. Different, industrial, high alcohol, has it's pros and cons, but I won't be drinking this one again.

Douberd (3129) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - NOV 26, 2014
(Voll-Damm (Doble Malta)) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into a glass tankard, ABV 7.2% Pours dark golden coloured beer, with lazy activity in a crystal clear body. Small and thin white head, with average retention, leaving minimal lacing after the foam has collapsed. Intense malty aroma, some corn. Stale bread, light grass. Taste has lots of malts too, lots of sugars as well. Notable alcohol but it drinks pleasantly. Mildly bitterness on the finish, good enough to break the initial sweetness down a bit. Some adjuncts too present. Medium body, carbonation on the low side. This one reminded me the all malts/sugar/alcohol strong beers in the supermarket, made to get you drunk fast and targeted to specific people, but I kind of liked it actually. Not one to drink fast though.

MarkoNm (1298) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - NOV 23, 2014
Pours a clear amber color, topped with an average just off-white head. Mild malty aroma, slight grainy notes and caramel. Sweet taste, with medium bitterness in the finish. Not bad, nothing special though.
