Ein rotgoldenes Märzenbier wie es die Tradition verlangt. Würzig im Trunk mit einem ausgewogenen Hopfenaroma. Der Bügelverschluß auf diesem Bierklassiker lässt Erinnerungen an alte Zeiten wieder aufleben.

FatPhil (13867) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 22, 2010
500ml bottle (Alko, Tallinn)
Golden brown, tight head. Really rich grainy, slightly husky aroma, a few orangezest and other fruity esters there too. Pleasant carbonation. The aroma was good preparation for the taste, in the mouth there’s a lovely deep bitter presence in the retronasals, and then on swallowing you realise this is jam-packed full of grainy malts, a really full marzen. And I don’t mean ’malts’ as in sugar, like fucked up US beers, I mean the malted grains - this is actually quite dry. The bitterness gives clues that there’s some roastiness too, and in the finish I even get a cocoa-like roasted hint (though perhaps more kamatahvelly than real chocolate). Full flavoured and thirst quenching - that’s what a beer should be like.

vyvvy (5858) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - FEB 12, 2010
Pours clear copper with an off-white head. The aroma has mildly toasted malt, lots of sweetness and some mushiness. Medium body that’s a bit biting for the style with semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor begins with octoberfest style maltiness, a bit of sourness, some hazelnuts and a bit of mush to the malt. The finish is spicier and nuttier and a bit drier malt aspect than most marzens. Better than expected.

smcolw (617) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 22, 2010
Modest two-finger head with even a violent pour. Settles quickly and leaves no lace. The brew color is lightly dull copper with a slight haze. Malty, light caramel nose. Little to no hops. Spritzy on the tongue. Mostly light crystal malt flavors with a mild sweetness. Balancing hop in swallow with some pleasant bitter aftertaste.

Strykzone (6719) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - DEC 30, 2009
Beer # 1500. Clear light brown with moderate carbonation visible. Miniscule head. Nice spicy and roasted aroma. Flavor is malt dominant with biscuit, caramel, nuts, and fruit. Hops are noted and add significant earthiness. A nice Marzen but not all that memorable.

Ernest (7319) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 26, 2009
Bottle (Monk’s Fest). Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is medium amber. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted bread, cookie, caramel), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, apricot), with a light note of peach. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic, metallic. The metallic finish taints the enjoyment a bit, and it’s a tad too sweet, but otherwise it’s a juicy, enjoyable brew.
