Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: xnicknj on 09-12-2013

Traditionally brewed in March just before brewing was banned for the Summer, Märzenbiers are malty, smooth, clean, and rich lagers that have a distinctive malt backbone and complexity for a style that can be so understated. Brewed with German Munich and Pilsen malts as well as German Hallertau and Tettnanger hops, this distinctive brew is conditioned at cold lagering temperatures for five months; some things you just can’t rush. This is a true Oktoberfest offering, one that is prominently featured during our Oktoberfest celebration at the brewery, and at 5.2% ABV it’s a crisp, smooth, and easy to drink beer perfect for the chilly Fall nights ahead.

Burnt orange in color and a bit murky which was surprising for beer lagered for 4 months. Poured with a short off-white foam that quickly reduced to a wispy cap. Sweet, bready and caramel malt aromas at first followed by toasted malt, dark ripe fruit and herbal hops. On the heavier side of medium bodied with a big oily feel down the middle and spicy, tangy feel on the edges. Big sweet caramel malt up front followed by dark, fruity raisin-like sweetness. Toasted malt and spicy, herbal hops through the middle with expanding hop bitterness toward the end. Finished with a lightly crisp feel and a tangy herbal hop bite. Along with the big malty presence, the dark fruit notes were very unique.

22 oz bottle. Clear honey brown body with a thick white head. Great lacing and retention. Aromas of toasted malt, bread, caramel and toffee. Flavors are lots of semi-sweet caramel malt, a bit of roast, dough and a touch of nuttiness. A really fantastic beer, I very much enjoyed this.

Quite a good find I walked into my House of 1,000 beers and saw they were clearing these out for just 4 bucks a bomber marked down from 7.95. Into a pint glass.

A - Quite a deep shade of orange brown, very dark for a marzen. Clear looking with a 1/2 inch of off white head.
S - Really stands out with nutty and bready malts, some bittering hops, some skunk, and mostly caramel sweetness.
T+M - Quite good the body was on par maybe drank a bit heavy with a medium body. Just busting with sweet malts, bready malts, and very little skunked hops.

Overall not the best Oktoberfest but a very good malty version of one. Finished the bottle and wish I bought two for the price.

22oz bottle poured into a shaker pint.

Brownish amber with 1 finger of off-white head that dissipates quickly. Very cloudy.

Toasted bread, caramel, nuts, banana bread and cocoa.

Caramelized brown sugar, toasted brown breads, molasses and nutty malts. Light notes of banana bread and cocoa nib. Finishes with an earthy and somewhat leafy hop bitterness.

Medium bodied, crisp, smooth and clean.

Ziggy Zaggy is brewed in March and cold conditioned for 5 months before its fall release. A lot of love from NCB in this one. A top notch Oktoberfest!

I like this beer it was very good.
Pours a rich copper with a tall beige head.
Smells malty and bready and the taste is similar with a big biscuit malt taste.
