COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kräftig wie die Farbe ist auch der Geschmack unseres Märzen. Früher dauerte das Braujahr von September bis April. Märzenbier wurde im März stärker eingebraut und während der braufreien Zeit ausgeschenkt.

Formerly Josefsbräu Märzen.

YogiBeera (2570) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 26, 2006
Another goodie from MoritzF! Amber color, small head, fizzy carbonation. Band aid, carmamel and light nut nose. Nutty and honeyish tate - very nice.

bierkoning (13055) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAY 10, 2006
Swing top bottle from Pivnizub. Orange amber color, malt and licorice in the aroma. Malty sweet flavor with cinnamon, plums and licorice. Medium to full bodied. Tasty märzen!

pivo (2684) - GERMANY - MAY 5, 2006
Sweet grainy nose, amber, foamy spongy head. Honey and caramelish malt, light cinnamon end. Full body. Sweeter than not, but decent overall.

MoritzF (9759) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - APR 4, 2006
(swing top bottle) Hazy orange-amber colour with a stable foamy yellow head. Sweet malty aroma mixed up with strong notes of sourdough and a touch of fruitiness (apricots). Moderately sweet malty taste, yeasty fruity notes, medium body and carbonation, slightly floral hoppy, light bitter finish with some spice in the aftertaste (nuts, herbs, lavender). Very good and unconventional Märzen.

JorisPPattyn (9878) - Ursel, BELGIUM - NOV 6, 2005
Huge yellow-beige head; amber beer with olive highlights. (Dark German) bread, sourdough, ending sweet-nutty, crème de noix . Quite bitter, autumn leaves, earthy flavours, background is again bready with some sweetness, but sourdough impression is gone. Has some Bock-like aspirations. This is way better than most Märzens. Medium bodied, refreshing. Hops on the aftertaste, again leafy. Extremely good example of the style. Big thanks to joss.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Beautiful amber colour with a nice, creamy head. Sweetish, malty aroma. Decent body with flavours of sweet malt. Discreet bitterness. Brewed by a group of disabled people in an "Integrationsfirma" - they did an excellent job. 170905

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - SEP 12, 2005
Bottled. Clear amber colour. Medium head. Malty, honeyish sweet, yet hoppy aroma. Quite balanced taste, initially medium sweet and malty, but moving pretty fast into a delicate floral hoppiness with a lasting hop-bitter finish. One of the best märzens I´ve had. Delicious and balanced.

jonas (7358) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - SEP 10, 2005
Dark amber, tanned foamy head. Honeyish, nutty and delicate hoppy and spicy aroma. Medium to light body. Focus on spicy malt (nuttyness), but has a quite elegant hop counterpoint. Dry wooden bitterhop aftertaste. Rather nice.

pivnizub (10454) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - SEP 8, 2005
Swing-top bottle: Clear, amber to orangey coloured, medium-sized, lasting off-white head; fresh floral hoppiness in the nose, traces of caramel and honey; sweetish-malty beginning; moderate bitter-malty taste, ending in a long lasting aromatic bitter-sweet finish. Surprise: a modern "Hausbrauerei", producing individual and tasty brews !
