Impression: I had the barrel unfiltered version of their flagship Märzen at their day of the brewery weekend and found it smoother and less smoky. This bottled version keeps the smooth aspect but the hammy smokiness is more up front. It’s much less sharp than the regular bottled Märzen as well. Glad I picked it up, wish I could have carried more.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
