On tap at the North Park brewery. Pours a handsome golden amber in the glass with a modest head. A nice whiff of caramel and roasted grain. The oddity is how thick this feels in the mouth. A touch of mucilage or just German malt power? the malt is just barely sweet with a grainy undertone.

The hops have a touch of fruit, like pear skins, and plenty of bitterness. There is a leafy, woody note. This is certainly the most robust Märzen I can remember. I can't quite figure out the sturdy, thick mouthfeel, but this is not what I'd call a refreshing quaff. Maybe it needs a dose of rye. Anyway, it's good to see local breweries trying out the German traditions.
