Comments: Very tight malt profile, firm toastiness, mildest acidity refreshment. All flawless extraction. Tasty Vienna malts. Faint herbal and earthy hops. Very, very balanced… orange tea, root and minty nuances. Complex and delicious, amongst my favourite Viennese offerings.

rickgordon (3844) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 13, 2010
Draught at the brewpub. Deep amber colour, slight cloudy. Sweet malty and bit toasty malty as well as herbal hoppy. Really malty and balanced. Pronounced Vienna malt flavour, yet tad lactic but not disturbingly so.

Gazza (726) - Worcester, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2004
A lovely drinking beer; amber in colour with a honeyed malt aroma and taste with an assertive bitterness in the aftertaste. Excellent. (Draught at Wiedenbräu, Vienna)

Beersiveknown (3074) - NORTHERN IRELAND - MAR 11, 2013
keg at the brew
This is the first Marzen I have enjoyed to date. Perhaps I was a bit hasty in writing of fteh style without trying it on druaght in its heartland. Pours hazy dark chestnut with a bready nettley aroma. Satisfying bitterness and full body, quite easy drinking for its stronger ABV.

downender (6391) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2008
On tap at the brewpub. Deep bronze in colour with a big, off white head. Crisp malt aroma, with some grassy hops and a touch of hay. Flavour had some fruit, a hint of caramel, orange peel and a long dry finish. My favourite example of this style to date - great stuff.

Quack-Duck (7958) - Down South, GERMANY - MAY 2, 2014
bottle, purchased at the brewery. Hazy golden, mid-sized white head. Lovely malty nose. Full-bodied, superb malt flavours witrh nice aromatic hops, almost like in a good Bohemian Pilsener. Good stuff.

MartinT (7956) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 9, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2009 My Bottom Line:
Crisp toastiness leads to a trail of honey and herbal hops in this nimble and efficient Märzen.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A mountain of foam soars above the misty pale golden amber.
-Effervescence is soft and increases drinkability.
-Herbal hops contribute a little bitterness, but it remains subtle.
-This is a simple recipe, but it is well-rendered and serves its purpose very nicely, like all Wieden beers I had that day.

On tap at the brewpub.

take away bottle(500ml). -Dark golden/orange coloured, medium sized white head that went away slowly, stale honey nose. Malty, grassy hops and cereals with notes of orange and pepper. Quite dry and bitter finish.

yespr (31480) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2010
From tap at the brewpub. Pours cloudy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is fruity and mild yeasty. Distinct floral/fruity aroma. Sweet flavoured, fruity and with a good bitterness slowly coming through. Ends dry and bitter.
