Just out of the subway and trudging through freshly fallen snow, my sights were set on Radegast Hall and Biergarten


Vienna Märzen

The classic amber to red lager that was originally brewed in Austria in the 19th century has come to be known as the Vienna style. These are reddish-amber with a very malty, toasted character and a hint of sweetness. This style of beer was adapted by the Munich brewers and in their hands has a noted malty sweetness and toasted flavor with a touch more richness. The use of the term “Märzen”, which is German for March, implies that the beer was brewed in March and lagered for many months. On a label, the words “fest Märzen” or “Oktoberfest” generally imply the Vienna style. Oktoberfest beers have become popular as September seasonal brews among U.S. craft brewers, though they are not always classic examples of the German or Austrian style.
