Style: 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.

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.

From the back label: "BOTTLE ON: 09:50 259 04/05/17"

Appearance: Amazing clarity with a very beautifully colored body sporting hues of deep orange, red, and dark brown. When held to the light there is a nice golden-amber color. The head is thick and creamy textured with great retention and lacing.

Aroma: There isn't much aroma with the exception of an extremely light noble hop scent that is barely there.

Taste: There is a very light flavors of toasted caramel. There is a subtle presence of burnt coal and a gentle bitter finish.

Mouthfeel: The flavor and body of the beer feels watered down. The body is light and it does have a nice bitterness at the end.

Overall: It isn't a very impressive Märzen. The flavors seem too watered down and while there is not a lot of malt flavor. It feels about average for a run-of-the-mill Märzen but it doesn't hold a candle to some of the better preserved imports or competing U.S. craft beers. I really wouldn't recommend it and I wouldn't buy it again. I would drink it if a friend offered it.
