Iron Plow Harvest Märzen – Vancouver Island Brewery

O’hare’s Beer Club October Box

From Vancouver Island Brewery out of Victoria BC comes their limited edition “Iron Plow Harvest Märzen” an Octoberfest style Lager.  This beer pours a dark Golden colour with a beige head.  The aroma of the beer is malty, bready with some sweet caramel.  This is a full flavored lager with medium roasted malts, bread, caramel and a medium hoping for a lager with a nice creamy finish.  The alcohol content of this Märzen is 5.8% and an estimated IBU of 60+ (O’hare’s).  This is a very nice Märzen style lager!

This is number 1 of their 2nd series of seasonal bombers.

Printed on the label – “Those who lay the foundation rarely receive the credit, but we think that those Islanders who sacrifice blood, sweat and tears should reap the spoils. This Harvest Märzen is made to celebrate the end of the summer harvest, and a change into the fall season. A creamy, smooth and malty beer representing the bounty of a season’s hard work, from plow to pint.”

Food Pairing according to O’hare’s Beer Club notes are as follows:  Bangers & Mash and Roast Pork.
