Style: German Märzen / Oktoberfest

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.70%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our most popular beer, Märzen (Maert-zen) is a smooth, mildly sweet, auburn colored lager. This beer originated from Bavaria, where it was brewed in March (Marz in German) and stored in caves to be enjoyed during warmer weather. At the end of September, any remaining kegs of Märzen were consumed during the two week celebration which became famous as Oktoberfest. We hope you'll enjoy it year round.

Clear with a dark reddish auburn color with brown chestnut highlights, served with a nice two fingers of solid white head that had a good retention to it. Light but malty nose with a faintly nutty hint to it. Flavor was nicely malt forward with a mild sweetness and caramel and biscuit flavor to it, as well as faint nutty, toffee hints, body feels medium/ light with an average amount of carbonation to it and a nice smooth mouthfeel to it, easy drinking and not to heavy. Finish is lightly bitter with a light balancing touch of faintly noble hop back-end that still leave a faintly lingering caramel sweetness on the aftertaste. Not a bad example of a Märzen

I'm big on malty beers, and this beer is just great with any burger and or sport event with a side of nachos.. or for chilling around.

Beautiful deep amber with an off white white head. Decent retention. Aromas include dried fruits and roasted nuts. Notes of catamel. Upon taste the malts are the star of the show. Some hints of molasses. Not too heavy in the mouth with a light bitter finish. Would go great with some street tacos.

Begins with a sweet malt smell and short, sharp carbination. Deep copper color with an off white head. It has a medium body, but with an ample bread-like malt backbone. Hops are bitter and do a nice job of balancing the liquorice flavored malt.

Had a 4 Black Friday growler of the week coupons given to me by a friend recently so i picked up a Marzen growler 2-26-18 that i shared with another friend at the Coyotes-Senators game on 3-3-18.

Beer poured amber with a solid off white head with the initial pour.

Nose was toasted malt forward.

Taste was on the sweeter side that is toasted malt and nutty forward but with a decent amount of hops to keep the sweetness at bay.

Mouthfeel was light to medium bodied and fairly refreshing.

Overall a nice lager and a good change of pace from IPAs and Stouts.

Had it while visiting New Orleans. On tap into a 0.25l glass, nice golden orange color. Good head and lacing. Nice bready smell and taste with an agreeable sweetness. Nice beer.
