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.

Palme (3605) - Bergen, - OCT 5, 2012
0.33l can. This is a crystal clear golden one with a big and somewhat lasting off-white lager head. It smells a bit like margarine and nuts mixed with something soft fruity - zesty perhaps and a hint of nail polish without acetone (yeah my girlfriend has one, so I know) The taste is not bad at all actually. It’s medium-bodied, has a average carbonation level in a lily texture. Clear near raw alcohol in the really nutty and malty taste. Not unpleasant at all to drink this. Is’s soft, yet it has a bit of a punch from the relatively high alcohol percent. Leaving a sweet and mildly dry taste in the mouth. Not great but still perhaps the best I’ve had from this brewery. 07.08.2012

mR_fr0g (4520) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2015
Can on holiday in Mallorca. Nice clear deep orange / golden Coloured pour with a lasting thin head. Aroma is prettY malty, some raisin, little caramel. Flavour is composed of sweet malts, caramel, harsh hot alcohol, little rough. Palate is medium bodied, highish carbonation and a little solvent. Decent strong eurolager.

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2015 De mis favoritas de cerveza de botella española que se sirve habitualmente en bares. Pronunciado sabor a alcohol y un regusto muy rico

DSG (7485) - Tel Aviv, - JAN 31, 2015
Bottle shared at a tasting in Yuvalim. Clear, somewhat deep, golden color. Aroma of malt, a bit caramelly, a bit vegetal, very alcoholic, with metal. Sweet flavor with malt, caramel, alcoholic, with a slightly bitterish finish. Light to medium-bodied, a bit sticky. Another crappy European Strong Lager, just pretending to be something else.

Clear gold with white head. Sweet aroma, a little alcoholic, some bread. Tastes very alcoholic, sourish and unpleasing. Some metallic aftertaste, medium body, bitter finish. Quite horrendous.

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

Benzai (9433) - 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.
