4.5/5  rDev +13.4%

From a 500ml bottle, into pint glass served up at 52F.
Poured a beautiful medium golden amber color, topping itself off with a rich creamy head, which then settled down to a 1/2 finger. Very inviting to the eye, as well to the nose. A Classic Marzen aroma, of sweet caramel malt. The taste, light bready, toasted malt with a nice hop finish. All in all, a nice full body, and the right balance of sweet and bitterness. Very enjoyable. A true Oktoberfest, that is best served in a stein, under a beer garden tent, with your friends. Prost!

I don't think I can appreciate this style but I thought it was an ok beer. Very bready and it was smooth. I probably won't revisit the oktoberfest style. I love ayinger but this was not nearly the best that they make. It wasn't unpleasant by any means but I didn't have a "Wow!" moment.

The best Marzen I have ever had to my recollection. Pours a clear, amber color with a well-built, off-white head that is very creamy in consistency. Aroma is genuine Marzen. Light happiness as well. Smells of rich, sweet bread. Flavor is just as yummy. Caramel drizzled pastry/bread. Light, crisp hop flavor as well. Has a creamy texture. Peppy carbonation. Very drinkable. Pretty delicious. I have become much fonder of this style as of late.

Bottle.
