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.

It’s not a too bad märzen. It’s got flavour, body and good carbonation, only bad thing it’s that, as far as I remember, it’s got rice in it!!! WHY!?? Anyways, (a bit) above average beer.

BillKismet (3472) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 16, 2015
Sparkly bronze-gold body with puffy airy head. Sticky sweet grain nose, and a touch of cardoard. The body is viscous and of honeyed grain with a slight tannic bitter finish.

jamaty (1162) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 15, 2015
Ámbar ligeramente turbia con algo mas de un dedo de densa espuma blanca. Aroma a malta, cereal. Cuerpo potente, sabor fuerte, seca y bastante amarga. Sin embargo sabe combinarlo muy bien con tonos dulces que crean un conjunto bueno y final sabroso.

Birra molto gustosa. Persistente e leggermente amarognola. Retrogusto di noci tostate. Appena la bevi corr....

McTapps (5574) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - JUN 3, 2015
Can from local supermarket on Mallorca, Spain. The beer has got a clear deep golden colour with a small head and medium body. Aroma of malts and bread. Taste of sweet malt, sugar, caramel, hops and sweet bread. Sweet-alcoholic finish.. Did not really like it.

Erst dachte ich an einen Bock, aber bei genauerem Hinschmecken kommt der Imperilae doch gut durch. Etwas an Rosine, dazu ein bisschen Muff, etwas Karamell, ein wenig Getreide und eine Prise an schmeckbarem Alkohol. Eigentlich ganz in Ordnung. Mehr aber auch nicht.

UXO (769) - CANADA - MAY 16, 2015
Pours clear pale amber with one finger of fluffy white head, good retention and moderate patchy lacing. (3/5) Nose is corn flakes, caramel malt, faint grassy hops, slight alcohol edge. (5/10) Taste is moderate sweet, mild bitter. (5/10) Medium bodied, off dry medium duration finish. (3/5) An interesting take on Märzens, with the "double malt" making this in essence an Imperial Pale Lager. Malt definitely dominates the character, but there is some significant hop contribution to at least start to balance that out. The alcohol presence is definite, making it tend a little to the harsh side, but all in all it’ll do on a 30° day on the coast of Mallorca. (10/20)

huineman (400) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 10, 2015
Pours dark amber with a white head. Aroma is corn flakes, honey, bitter herbs, bread. Powerful and markedly bitter. Long-lingering. Sip it slowly, don’t gulp it.
