Brauerei Göss "Gösser Märzen"

Gosser Märzen pours a crystal clear gold beneath a bright head of white. The head retention and lacing are slightly better than average. The aroma is fairly basic with malt and a little bit of floral hops, and the flavor follows. A median bitterness balances it leading to a dry finish. Well made but not particularly inspiring.

Bright gold with fluffy white that rings. 4
Grass + hay + yeast starter - maybe a touch dim. 3.75
Solid doughy start, lagery tartness, some real grass + spicy hops to end, with IBU bite. 4
Light, crisp, round. 4

Body + bitterness say Marzen, bigger than the average lager. But is the end clean or just dead? Still nice 2 months past its BBD, which says something. 4.25

This probably the most widespread available typical Austrian Märzen. This is not what you would expect from an Oktoberfest or German Märzen. It lies somewhere im between a Munich Helles, a southern German Pilsener and the aforementioned Oktoberfest.
It has a golden color, clear and a good white head
Smeel is of Vienna or Munich malt and Pilsener malt with some noble hops
Taste follows nose with the final hop bitterness being quite strong and a little metallic
Refreshing and drinkable, can be drunk the whole night and even the Morning thereafter
Good example of this Austrian style. But not the best. Some find it too harsh

A: pale yellow colour, nice thick dense head. Loads of carbonation.

S: some hops, hint of malts, nothing bothersome

T: a bit sweet, almost no hops or malts.

M: too thin, and undercarbonated

O: the body and carbonation hurt this beer, because the taste isn't actually that bad
