Pale amber-coloured lager
A. Le Coq & Co was established in 1807. Production was moved from London to Tartu at the beginning of the 20th century. In 1912 A. Le Coq was chosen as the official supplier of the Russian emperor’s court and Imperial Extra Double Stout, which was brewed in Tartu, became available throughout the empire.
Märzen was named after the manner in which it was made: according to the Beer Purity Law (Reinheitsgebot) adopted in Bavaria in the 16th century, brewing was only allowed from September 29 till St George’s Day which is on March 23. The beer that was left to mature in autumn was ready by March, which gave it its name in German.
Imperial Märzen is an amber lager with a full taste, where the sweetness of malt dominates over the bitterness of hops. Märzen is characterised by a roasted aroma reminiscent of bread, as well as a malty essence and lasting head.
