Since Micro-Brew Review Monday died a long time ago on another platform and since I have time to write today, consider this a new series that will continue for as long as my current employment holds and as long as my current enjoyment of both writing and beer hold.
Clipper City is a Baltimore-based brewery and they make a variety of fine libations, but so far my favorite has been the Marzhon. The Marzhon is an Oktoberfest style amber lager. The name is a play on the Baltimore slang “hon,” a term for just about anyone as far as I know, and the name of the style of brew, marzen(umlaut missing on the a). It’s not too hoppy or too malty, nor is it cloying or bitter. I think this is what better reviewers and more seasoned tongues would call “balance.” Marzhon is just a damn good and yummy. I would drink it year round and definitely with spicy food, but it would work well with nearly any food as the flavor is not particularly heavy. I would easily recommend this beer to someone who was not sure that they are a fan of beer yet.
This beer was drunk at the Brickskeller.
