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.

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.
