One For The Road's Marzen a driven by malt with a balance of clean, hop bitterness. Originating in Germany, the Marzen was traditionally brewed in March and stored in caves to allow for beer in the summer months when brewing was difficult. It is also common as an Oktoberfest beer but we like it so much, we keep it all year round. The Marzen’s amber colour with copper highlights is a full-bodied, rich and toasty beer with an enticing aroma. This beer pairs well with kielbasa, jalapeño jack cheese, and coconut cream pie.
This is a really nice, sound and easy drinking marzen. As far as I know this is the only af marzen available in Canada, so if you miss this delicious, smooth beer style (aka oktoberfest) this is a must try, Even if you don't know this style, though, it's just a good, well rounded beer. LIke the other OFTR brews, it's a bit light in body, but the malt profile is nice and full, round with a malty backbone. Good mouthfeel, smoothly (but not over) carbonated.
Easy to drink
Nice flavour profiles. Strikes me as a refreshing, ice cold summer drink.
