Final comments: This is a German Marzen style beer. Marzenbier is originated in Bavaria. It has a medium to full body and can vary in color from pale to dark brown. In Germany this style beer is brewed as a lager, here in the states it can be brewed for a shorter period, as an ale,  using traditional German hops and grains.
