One of the best oktoberfest beers. The malty nose and citrus hops make for a great relaxing birra!

Excellent!! Fantastic malty nose, light hop. Classic golden color, clear with proper head. Lightly bitter brew with a medium body. Very accurate style. One of my favorite german breweries.

This Marzen pours a clear pumpkin-orange color. A foamy white head forms fast upon pouring, but dissipates quickly.
Malts were evident on the nose as was expected. But butterscotch, and maybe even pumpkin, were a pleasant olfactory surprise.
Ayinger Oktober Fest Marzen is a wonderfully crisp and sweet brew suitable for drinking by itself or with food. Before eating, I found it to be clean, light, and refreshing. It could be a wonderful alternative to watered-down light beers on a hot summer day.
It was great beer for the low price of $2.49 here in Texas!

Great beer. One of the best Octoberfests I’ve had. Discovered a few years ago and have found there are very few that can match the taste of the, caramely delicious flavor and after taste.

One of the top rated Oktoberfest beers for good reason. Not overly sweet or overly bitter. Perfectly balanced. Great mouthfeel very clean and refreshing but still full bodied. Lingers on the palate. Fantastic beer!

Love the bottle design and the fact that it’s a pint bottle, which I think more beers should be because I have pint glasses that I want to fill up! Pretty biscuity and fairly creamy palate, which is nice. The aroma is definitely better than the actual taste, but they compliment each other nicely. I’ve drank this both out of the bottle and in a glass, and out of the bottle it is actually surprisingly bad!

this beer was better than normal but not worth the $6.75 a bottle we paid for it. it was a little overly carbinated tasting so its not real smooth going down.

My favorite Oktoberfest/Marzen. Everything works for this great German beer. Smooth with roasted chocolate and spice hints. Great finish leaves you wanting more.

A solid offering from what some consider to be the best Munich-area brewery, Copper-colored with very little head, lingering finish and fairly sweet. Good hops, balances the malt very well.

I just picked up 60 bottles- this is truly a great Seasonal and is the best Oktoberfest I have ever had plus it seems very consistent from year to year. The refrigerator is now stocked and I will be popping the top on one of these bottles this evening!
