Nice beer. I had quite a few of these. Lagers are the second best beer in the world. This one is pretty darned good. Be nice if they were more easily available.

Light copper with a slightly off color head. Aromas of sweet malt, very slight bitterness, and a fine, long, oily/viscous mouth feel. Solid yeasty character. First time I've had this, it will NOT be the last. Went down way too fast for a full bodied beer. Delicious.

herrklemann (577) - Graz, AUSTRIA - JAN 9, 2018
Bottle, courtesy of SinH4. Thanks Stefan! Pours a slightly murky copper with a small, bubbly off-white head. Bread, light caramel, floral, dark fruits, a bit spicy. Slightly sweet, with a good, round mineralic touch of the water, and light bitterness. Bubbly natural carbonation on a slick, oily body.
Rating number 500. When I started out on here, I wouldn't have believed I'll end up with a lager as one of my "milestones". But being on here, talking to fellow enthusiasts, tasting great stuff far off the conventional track of Austrian makros, has taught me that lager can be a lot more than when you first try it. This one is no exception. Slick, with great carbonation, character and insane drinkability. They surely know how to brew top notch stuff in Aying. Thanks for the supply, Stefan, it's a real pleasure to have met you!

Bottle (1 pint 0.9 oz). Pours bright copper with off-white head that dissipates quickly. Nose of bready malt, some stone fruit, and floral notes. Rich caramel flavor with honey and some floral notes. Long finish.

Nische (2731) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 17, 2017
Bottle from SinH4, many thanks! As Kirtabier. Pours clear, deep, amber with a beige head. Fine bubbles. A bit of butterscotch, toast bread, molasses and some grass. Soft feel.

Rugamu (200) - SPAIN - DEC 7, 2017
Marzen espectacular, de lo mejor en su categor�a, se bebe sola, en paladar es un espect�culo, olor a cereales que llama. Repetir�a sin dudar.

3.5
smroush (311) - Michigan, USA - DEC 2, 2017
Aromas of toffee and bread with hints of butterscotch, molasses and some nutty flavor. Pretty much no hop aromas. Color is a clear attractive amber; head is a sparse off-white. Taste starts wit a little sweetness but then finishes dry. Light bitterness. Texture is a bit lively carbonation; light to medium body; medium length finish. Overall a pretty true to form Marzen, though relatively low complexity.
