Beer added by: brewdlyhooked13 on 10-12-2002

Our Märzen Beer is highly appreciated and popular far beyond the borders of Salzburg, and is characterised by its typical flavour.

Its production uses Stadlau Pilsen and Kara-Extra-Hell malts, as well as Hallertau-Spalt-Select aromatic hops by Barth & Sohn, Nuremberg, to give the Märzen Beer its unique touch.

.5L on tap at the fabulous braurei and served in a ceramic mug.

A white sudsy head comes up and a bit over the rim, adding unnecessary encouragement to take a sip immediately. Golden, clear liquid underneath the rapidly diminishing head.
A fine aroma of malt and baked bread with a touch of hops and a hint of alcohol.
The taste is similar, although the hops are much more present, even from the start, and become dominant by the finish. Nonetheless, there's a good bit of toasted malt flavor in the finish.
M: near medium body and medium+ carbonation.
O: excellent, probably world-class version of the style.

It was ze greatest beer in all ze deutschlands!

I lived in Salzburg for a year and drank this beer weekly. There are no ways to fully do it justice with mere words. It is the perfect beer. You can drink it for hours and enjoy each sip as much as the first. It really doesn't fall into any specific category other an liquid perfection. Its thick and labrynthlike in its complexity but without any airs of snobbery. It is simply a beer brewed for everyone by absolute masters of the craft.

Drank this beer at the Monastery in Salzburg, Austria.

It is served in a clay stein that you must rinse before you wait in line to be served. After waiting in line the server (a monk?) will fill your glass from a huge wooden barrel. Awesome.

The appearance was darker than I though it would be. It had a good sized head that lingered for a long time.

The beer had a strong malty smell. It had a bread like smell. It smelled extremely fresh.

The taste was once again malty and fresh. It was a sweet malt without much hoppiness. It had a slight nutty taste.

The mouth feel could have been better. It was slightly watery I though.

This beer is soooo drinkable. I had more liters than I should have and my wife even finished two.

I hope that I am back at this place at sometime in my life because it was a wonderful experience.

Drinking this beer from oak barrels, served by gravity at the Brewery one of the best beer-related experiences I have had.

After personally rinsing the krug in the water fountains provided, it was handed to the barman for an expert pour from the barrel. The beer was poured at high speed (gravity) and the head spilled over the side - a good sight indeed. I'm not even sure what colour this beer was, but I figure it is a kind of a dull yellow colour - as it is a Marzen.

An overwhelming sense of freshness prevails and this beer is way too drinkable. I noticed a lack of hop flavour, which suits me fine. A buttery sweet characteristic is also present, and a mild carbonation due to the fact it was served by gravity (this is not a drawback).

Probably one of the most perfect beers to be consumed in one of the best monasteries/brewhouses/biergartens in the world. You need no other reason to visit Salzburg other than to drink this beer at the source.

Great beer! I had this whilst we were in Salzburg. It was served in 1 ltr (or 0.5 liter) ceramic stein. This made it hard to notice the color of the brew, but it did not matter much, because the smell, head, taste and experience of having a stein is unbelievable. My favorite memory of drinking a beer(s). I had 2 steins, before we had to go.

A: Good thick head that stuck around. Gold colored.
S: Malt, honey, heaven.
T: Exceptional honey smooth flavor.
M: Medium bodied, lovely.
D: Very high, I could guzzle it all day.

I had this beer on a trip to Austria and it was very nice.

The beer is served in big stonewear mugs that you have to wash your self. You then go the pouring station and they serve you directly out of big wooden barrels. It takes them like 3 seconds to fill a liter (very impressive). This a very attractive old building and is very interesting in it own right.

The beer is very malty and well within style. You can drink a lot of this and not get hungover. It is very fresh and almost smelled like fresh bread. Goes great with the pretzels!

We were there in the fall and sat in their wonderful beer garden that is filled with hazelnut trees (watch out for falling nuts!). This is a great place in a a really neat city. Do your self a favor and visit if you are anywhere near here!!

I bought a case of this beer while in Salzburg

Pours golden with soft large head that slowly dissipates to thin and rather long lasting ring of foam and full of carbonation bubbles. Leaves patchy lacing. Aroma is straw malt with distant grassy hops. Taste is gentle lemony hops with some light sweetish malt and light bittersweet aftertaste. Feels very refreshing. Mouthfeel is quite thick, it has creamy feel with average carbonation.

Very good one, the only thing I regret is that I was driving and could not try it on tap.
