Strauß Märzen in Krug
Style: Märzen 5.5%
Color: in Krug so no visuals but amber from previous glasses
Head: off-white, creamy, rocky
Nose: richly malty, spicy
Palate: balanced, malty, spicy, underlying hops
Finish: lingering, bittersweet
Served: on tap at Gasthof Zum Goldenen Lamm
Impression: This is oddly served in a Krug which is how you expect it to be at a Keller, where it’s not. Perhaps this is what they used in the old days! It’s still the lovely Märzen I remember, richly malty with some spice. Though this area is one of the last which still drinks Märzen, it’s a dying breed which warrants your support. I think I like the Helles more and I must admit, it would be the best choice at the Keller but I have to respect a brewery sticking by what they obviously feel is their flagship.
Next beer or back to the beer list.
