A typical Austrian Märzenbier, mildly hoppy, highly fermented and full-bodied in taste. With 5.2% alcohol by volume and original gravity of 11.8ºPlato, it is a highly drinkable, well-rounded beer with a pronounced malt flavour. Award winner at national and international beer competitions, Gold Medal winner and holder of Monde Selection International High Quality Trophy. “Märzen” is derived from the German word for the month of March, März. Traditionally, beer was brewed in the autumn, and the barrels of beer would be covered with ice during the cold winter months. By the time the ice melted in March, the beer would be ready to drink.

Jonb5's rating

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 12/20
Jonb5 (550) - Greater London, - OCT 19, 2012
Pale golden colour, clear, small thin head which didn’t hang around long, tiny amount of lacing retained. Aroma was malty, strong hints of cabbage and vanilla, points to Saaz. Tasted bready, notes of sweet apple as well as malt, hint of vanilla. Soon went flat, texture was quite thick, fairly smooth. Overall, drinkable but too thick to be a Helles and slightly lacing depth to be a Maerzen.

Icedwarf (1657) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - MAY 27, 2017
Helder geel bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is licht zoet en fruitig met iets van druiven en rozijnen.

JaKeAFC (1127) - ITALY - APR 19, 2017
33 cl bottle. Golden color, clear, thick white head, disappearing, some skunk. Aroma is malty, grainy, light metallic, vaguely sugary. Taste is flattish, sweetish, soft bitter end. Average carbonation, oily texture, short finish, mild alcohol. Boring, noting going on.

Gurthnar (5865) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 12, 2017
Bottle. Average Austrian macro. Sweetish, syrupy, grainy and metallic, with a touch of astringency. Meh.

vinivini (2410) - Gomel, BELARUS - APR 10, 2017
Can. Grains and spicy hops on nose. Slightly skunky, Similar taste. Not enough malts for a märzen. Light bitterness. Feels pretty industrial. Drinkable.

MrHangover (4552) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 12, 2017
Canned, brought back from Austria. Pours a clear golden beer with a big white head on top. Aroma of grains, malts and wet grass, not much else. Typical bottom fermented smell. Flavor is bready, light bitter and malty. Fairly high carbonation, giving it a nice sparkly mouthfeel. Short, light bitter aftertaste. Just ok.
