Märzen or Märzenbier is a lager that originated in Bavaria, and is the beer style that was traditionally served at Oktoberfest in Germany.

Kilned malts and specialty malts produce a rich, toasty aroma, with a sweet flavor, while the traditional lager fermentation produces a clean yeast profile.

It's amber and cloudy. Smells like sweet malt, honey, biscuity goodness. Taste is a caramel malt with an overbearing, almost saccharin, sweetness. Only mildly hoppy, which is a plus for me in this style. It's a heavy beer and not especially crisp or clean, just a bit too sweet

16 oz can canned 7/6/23 into a dimple mug.
L: Pours clear medium amber with an orange hue with a thin soapy off white head with low retention, light steady carbo bubbles, no lacing.
S: Light malts, very light grains, a hint of brown bread.
T: Caramel malts, grains, mildly sharp citrus zest, fruit bread, brown bread, a hint of black tea, lightly earthy, bready notes to finish. Grains have a hint of toastiness.
F: Lightly brisk, glassy slick, medium bodied with a medium weight middle and a fast & gently drying finish.
O: A bright and tasty Marzen with subtly sharp fruit notes and a clean bready finish. Drinks easy and is very good in its style.

The temperature actually got down in the 60s overnight here in northwest Florida - time for a malty and amber Oktoberfest. Poured from a 16 oz. freshness dated can: very pretty amber with red highlights with a sustained and foamy off-white head.

Aromas of malt, bread and faint hops.

The malt is the star here with a solid entry that includes hints of brown bread, rye, licorice, and very faint roast in the mouthfeel; additionally, the mouthfeel is slightly chewy with a faint lingering bitterness on the palate. While the flavor is very good, this one does not invite quaffing because of its heavier body. Honestly, I would rather have Lupulin's excellent Dortmunder lager right now.

Big just offwhite head on this beer from an aggressive pour with a light copper color and see though look. Has that sweet malt I associate with a good Oktoberfest brew on the nose with some hops behind. Comes through on the flavor with an initial sweetness followed by a bready biscuit type sticky finish. Decent enough carbonation and some body, this hits the marks for me. Good stuff.

Clear dark amber body with a tan head, decent carbonation visible to the eye. Caramel malt and toast led delicate nose with bready accents. Taste is a stronger version of the nose, more biscuit than bready, floral tone hints finish. Feel is malty, smooth, crisp for the style, and has a touch of sweetness but doesn't build up too much
