It’s football Sunday. I’m parked on the couch watching the Jets game. So far, they don’t look awful. I made brunch this morning, which was a sweet potato and shishito pepper hash with barbecue brisket and fried eggs. It was really, really good. The other half was quite happy with it, especially since I haven’t made brunch in awhile. Anyways, I had this beer at The Pour House to pair with my pretzel bites. I haven’t had a beer of this style since January of this year. Let’s see how this one went.
Trivia: According to merchantduvin.com, “Bavarians have been celebrating the harvest with beer festivals since before the 1400s. Märzen is brewed in March to be ready for the September and October beer festivals.”
Random: This is only the second German beer I’ve had of this style. I definitely have to get to trying more of the classic ones as opposed to the American ones I tend to pick up.
This beer poured with a two finger, off white head that dissipated slowly and left lots of lacing on the glass. The body was a clear, copper color with high carbonation. The nose was really inviting, and had toasty malts and caramel malt. The taste was sweet with a touch of apple and caramel malt. It had some toffee too. The body was medium thickness with low carbonation. It had a long finish with caramel sweetness. This was a really good and classic Oktoberfest beer. I would definitely have this one again.
