COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Unser Bier für den absoluten Kenner. Eine Spezialität, die noch aus der Zeit vor der industriellen Revolution stammt, als es noch keine Kältemaschinen gab. Damals wurde im Monat März das letzte Bier eingebraut (daher natürlich der Name Märzen), da im Sommer keine Kühlung möglich war. Dieses „letzte Bier“ musste stärker eingebraut werden, um einen höheren Alkoholgehalt zu erreichen, da Alkohol ein natürliches Konservierungsmittel ist. Dieses Bier wurde dann im Sommer auf den Festen und Kirchweihen getrunken. Diesen Ursprung will unser Märzen nicht leugnen. Ein kräftiges, vollmundiges, bernsteinfarbenes Bier, sehr süffig. Der Höhepunkt jeder Kirchweih!

My absolute favourite among märzens. Overwhelmingly soft maltness, discrete balnced flavours, and leaves you craving more. Even though I’ve only tried this once, it has etched itself onto my mind.

Bottle, 5.3%. Mild grassy hop aroma. Clear dark golden colour. Small stable white head. Good malty flavour, very flavourful. Mild grassy hop flavour as well. Very clean and good.

MoritzF (9851) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JUN 6, 2009
(bottle) Clear, deep golden colour with a big and slightly off-white foamy head. Sweet biscuity malty aroma with a light toasty touch and a soft spicy hoppy blend. Moderately sweet flavour, medium to light bodied with a well-carbonated mouthfeel. Solid malty, slightly bready and biscuity taste with shy herbal accents; sweet-bitter malt-accented finish with shy traces of alcohol and herbal hops. Classical Märzen, pretty good (06.VI.09).

rozsoma (1010) - Gyõr, HUNGARY - OCT 5, 2010
Gyönyörű kis réz színárnyalata van. Eléggé carbonált, de nem kezdi ki a szájpadlást mégse. Kicsit vizes átlag. Könnyen iható. Édeskés.

Neururer1337 (103) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 15, 2015
Stabile, massive und recht feine Schaumkrone. Geruch leicht würzig. Der Anfang ist sehr mild, erst im weiterem Trinkverlauf wird es würziger, kerniger, im Mittelteil leicht karamellig und im Abgang schön herb. Das Wasser ist schön weich, die Rezenz recht stark. Gut süffig!

Bottle: Clear, amber coloured, small - quickly diminishing - fluffy white head; almondy, bisquity nose with a faint tinge of hops; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied, quite smooth; shorter sweetish-bisquity finish with a light bitterness in the aftertaste. Good Märzen.........
