12-ounce brown bottle with Best Before date of March 2011 notched into the label.
Pours a deep golden hue with a tinge of amber, sparklingly clear with a small off white head that dissipates quickly and leaves behind nary a trace of lacing on the walls of the glass as it drains away.
A touch of honey-drenched biscuit in the nose, a touch toasty and with a hint of spicy hops in the background.
Medium-bodied with a mild-to-moderate carbonation and a soft minerality. Malt shows itself throughout, with notes of sweet honey and lightly toasted bread. The hops show up early on to balance the sweet malt and provide a restrained bitterness along with some spicy and floral notes. Malt takes over once again in the finish, with a lingering sweetness that merges with a bit of dry hop character to leave a balanced, off-dry finish.
Extremely drinkable, this is just what a good Märzen should be. Very balanced, equally tasty, and gorgeous (though head retention is definitely lacking). It's certainly understandable how this has won so many awards. Most definitely an excellent interpretation of the style.
