Light gold color. Inviting aromas and flavors of chocolate cookie and soufflé, toasted lemon scone, and asian cole slaw with a supple, bright, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, interesting, long honeyed radish, watercress, nuts, and minerals finish. A snappy, invigorating märzen that stimulates the palate and the senses.

Serve in a Mug
Märzen beers are gold to dark amber in color and range from 5-6.5% in alcohol. These beers are characterized by a fuller-body, sweet toasted and toffee malt flavors and subtle hop character. These beers are malt-forward with flavors and aromas derived from Munich and Vienna malts. Closely related to the Vienna style, märzen-style lagers were originally brewed by Bavarian brewers in March to last through the fall. First officially introduced by Spaten Brewery at the 1841 Oktoberfest, märzen style beers have been linked to this celebration ever since. With only a few select breweries legally permitted to use the term Oktoberfest in Germany, the term “Octoberfest” has been adopted by US craft brewers for märzen style seasonal releases that coincide with the German festival. Noteworthy examples of this style included: Capital Oktoberfest, Great Lake Octoberfest, Spaten Oktoberfest and Ayinger Oktoberfest-Märzen.
