Known as a malty lager, Märzen was traditionally served at Oktoberfest celebrations. Tucker Brewing’s Tucktoberfest Märzen Lager is a fine example of the style. It’s brewed with all German malts from Weyermann and Rhön-Malz, including Vienna, Munich, Caramunich, Biscuit.
The result is a smooth, copper colored beer, with a German malt aroma, and a slightly sweet, complex malt flavor that reveals a distinctive caramel character, with bready, toasty notes. There’s very little hop aroma or flavor, and just a touch of bitterness lingering in the finish.
Like Märzen in general, the malt character of Tucktoberfest Märzen Lager makes it an easygoing match for a wide variety of foods, from Tex-Mex to cheeseburgers. And it will be a perfect pairing with all the Oktoberfest fare at Tucker Brewing.
