Notes/Commercial Description:
The Märzenbier is an Octoberfest-style amber lager brewed with Vienna, Munich, and Caramunich malts and lightly hopped with German Perle hops. The Bavarian lager yeast leaves a clean, malt focused beer perfect for drinking by the liter outside in the cool fall weather!

Clear copper colored beer. Not much head to speak of. Not much visible fizz either. Zero lacing.

Sharp, slightly metallic roasted malt aroma. A little bit of spicy hops.

A balance of roasted malt and hops up front with a funky aftertaste that is hard to describe. Kind of roasty, bitter and sour (not in a good way).

Medium bodied, under carbonated, crisp, dry finish.

I was excited to try this beer. Overall, it was a pretty big let down. I'm glad I didn't buy an entire growler. Sorry, Westbrook. I'll keep drinking your beers, but not this one.

On tap at Closed for Business. I dont think they brew any lagers. At least that what the tour said months back because they want to get beers out and not wait on the "lagering" process. Anyways, this beer was not malty at all like a marzen. Too many hops for the style. Didn't taste anything like a marzen. A thin IPA
