Bomber Marzen Amber Lager

bombermarzenBrewer: Bomber Brewery, Vancouver, BC
Style: Marzen Lager
Alc/Vol: 5.5%
IBU: 20

Description: This Spring seasonal beer, originally launched as a draught-only product, is now available in bottles for limited edition release. Consistent with the Bavarian-style of “March” beer, this beer is a darker, heavier take on the traditional lager, employing what I can only assume are Vienna Malt and Zaltec Hops to create a malty, dryly hopped amber lager.

Tasting Notes: I’ve been a fan of Marzen’s for quite some time, due to the fact that they are both clean drinking and refreshing as well as rich and malty. Bomber’s take on this was certainly faithful. In addition to the clean drinking quality of a lager, it had rich malts, a slightly sweet taste, viscous mouthfeel, and a nice, dry hop finish. Not a bad intro to this brewery either!

Appearance: Amber, clear, good foam retention and carbonation
Nose: Slightly toasted malts, syrupy sweetness, grassy hops
Taste: Rich malt, slight tang, hint of syrupy sweetness, dry hop finish
Aftertaste: Lingering malt, tang and sweetness, clean and dry
Overall: 8.5/10
