Marzen / Oktoberfest

1114 beers | 3.358 Avg Score

Marzens originated in Bavaria, Germany and were traditionally brewed in the Spring (March) to close out the cool weather brewing season before the coming hot summer months could spoil beer. During the summer, these beers were cellared in cold caves and later brought out with the cooler weather for Autumn festivals, including the renowned Oktoberfest in late September. Marzens are an adaptation of the Vienna style lager with higher malt depth (sometimes light sweetness), typically higher alcohol levels, and noticeable but low hop bitterness. They are golden-amber to deep copper in color and emphasize bready, biscuity, and lightly toasted malt flavors.
