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 at a late night food place in Barcelona. Clear Amber with a ring off white head. Aroma of malt, cardboard, light fruity notes, alcohol and caramel. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitter. Light to medium bodied with moderate to high carbonation.

Boutip (5898) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 26, 2016
Can: Poured a golden color lager with a small bubbly head with limited retention. Aroma of residual sugar notes and light adjunct is OKish. Taste is mostly dominated by adjunct with residual sugar and light alcohol notes could also be detected. Body is about average with good carbonation. Too much adjunct in this one for my taste buds.

kaserov (174) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JUL 18, 2016
Tiene mucha fama en España pero me parece un auténtico desastre. Hace años, mucho jóvenes la bebían mientras repetían el lema de: doble malta, doble moña. Muy coherente, si quieres emborracharte (aunque he de decir que hay otras cervezas más coherentes para tal propósito, aunque esta no es mala). No soporto el olor, no me interesa su sabor. No me interesa si es doble malta o cuádruple. No me gusta bajo ninguna circunstancia pero si tengo que beberla, por favor, que sea a la temperatura adecuada. En cuanto esta cerveza ha dejado de estar completamente fría, es imposible beberla. Hecatombe.

330 ml can bought at CitySuper in Habour City, Tsim Sha Tsui.

Clear golden amber colour; Half finger head with soapy white foam which fades in 30 seconds; Excellent good sticky lacing with quite fizzy slight carbonation; Aroma of Amber malt, with strong corn, grains, honey, strong floral, light caramel, sugar, bread, light lemon and grass; Medium sweet taste of Amber malt, with grains, floral, caramel, light syrup, bread, lemon, close to strong bitter hops and strong grass; Medium body. Quite thick and slick slick palate; Mouth feel is pretty solid maltyness in a thick and slightly soapy background. More malt than the wimpy Estrella Damm without adjunct tastes. Floral, grainy and fairly bready. Sweetness is tolerable light syrup, countered by strong, hop extract-like bitterness. Lemon to round. Okay… Hoppiness is strong floral, light lemon and grass in nose, and same in taste but stronger; Bitterness is strong, very extract-like for a lasting, high astringent sweet bitter malty finish; Slightly dry after taste. Sweet and quite bitter to mouth.

Comments: This is a jacked-up, more maltier version of Damm lagers: it has grainy corny aroma, slightly soapy body and pretty nasty hop extract bitterness, but overall the malt taste is quite wholesome, passable strong sweetness and fairly pleasant flowery palate. An okay Spanish SPL. Drinkable.

anstei (1176) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JUL 11, 2016
Can. Typical corn and metallic flavours, yet not as strong as others though. Some bitterness, rather sweet. Low carbonation. Some off tastes though, which I fail to describe.
