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.

UXO (706) - 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 (317) - 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.

Senka (860) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 16, 2015
FTA: canned and bottled. Beautiful fortified lager. As for its type - this one is smooth and crispy. Higher abv and extra malt make it enjoyable on a warm summer evening. A decent beer.

susonagger (71) - spain, - APR 5, 2015
NOTA DE CATA: - Aspecto: Voll Damm Extra Doble Malta tiene un color dorado intenso, con espuma casi blanca y medianamente persistente - Aroma: Los aromas persisten, con un tono a cereal, levadura y plantas herbaceas, y un poquito de regaliz - Cuerpo/sabor: Sabor intenso, con mucho cuerpo. La Doble Malta (o Märzenbier) es lo que le da a Voll-Damm su inconfundible fuerza, cuerpo y sabor. Doble Malta es la seña de identidad de esta cerveza.
