COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Märzenbier is an Octoberfest-style amber lager brewed with Vienna, Munich, and Caramunich malts and lightly hopped with German Perle hops. The Bavarian lager yeast leaves a clean, malt focused beer perfect for drinking by the liter outside in the cool fall weather! Availability: Draft First Released: September 23, 2011

GTAEgeek (1223) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 4, 2014
22 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy orange, with a big, frothy, beige head. Caramel, oranges, coriander, light floral hops, and sourdough. Bready sweetness, with a light bitterness. Light body, chalky, a little sharp, and astringent. Overall, this is a nice, flavorful, and dangerously drinkable beer. Mellow, balanced, and well done.

rbrazell (1649) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Draft at Westbrook. Burnt orange pour with a frothy white head. Toasted bready aroma, light caramel, toast, floral and grassy hop aroma. Flavor is similar, with a sort of toffee flavor and much more of a pronounced Noble hop character. Clean easy drinking with a nice bitterness. Good stuff.

Travlr (11835) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 25, 2014
Draft. Deep amber color, tan head. Nice aroma of toasted brown biscuits. Taste is sweet, malty at first, then peppery toast. Very nice.

suprchunk (2245) - Crestview, Florida, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Gusher. Under the six inch light khaki head is a hazy toffee colored liquid. The enormous head is slow to fall. Lacing. Buttery carbonic aroma. Taste is buttery as well. Caramel. Dry. Carbonic. Infected.

unclemattie (4185) - Georgia, USA - JUL 13, 2014
22oz bottle. Light amber color. Aroma of toasted malts, lagered smell. Oaked essences of vanilla. Flavor of vanilla oak, toasted grains, grassy hops. ABV is accurate, overall finishes like an Imperial Oktoberfest. Tastey. I’m favorite Westbrook, so far. (4119)

Bottle courtesy of PaulUnwin. Cheers, Paul! Pours a clear orange with a white head. Nose is toast, biscuit, lager yeast, and grassy bitterness. Flavor is similar with toast, biscuit, lager, and grassy hops. Light to medium in body and true to style.

ChainGangGuy (4375) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - FEB 2, 2014
22 ounce bottle - $6.48 at Sherlock’s in Marietta, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a lightly hazed, amber-orange body with a finger and finger only of white foam.

Smell: Sweet accented bready, softly toasted malts with a slender waft of fruit and nuts. Very meager hop note, but I’m getting to this a bit later than I probably should. I was unfair and I apologize for my poor behavior.

Taste: Bready maltiness, lightly toasty, blended with a restrained toffee-like sweetness, a swell of fruitiness, toasted cashew, and subtle spiciness from the lightly bitter Perle hops. The sweet maltiness and almost berryish fruitiness persists after the bitter subsides on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Just on the underside of medium carbonation.

Overall: Not perfect, but smooth, drinkable, served alongside some grilled cheddarwurst from local Heywood’s Provision.

Scent is bready with touch of spice. Pours clear amber with lasting white head. Starts spicy and finishes sweet. Carbonation is lighter than expected. Draft - Trappeze Pub - Athens, GA
