WITH-OUT ? 1 OF THE TOP MARZEN-OKTOBERFEST STYLES BAR-NONE.... the balance in the malt & hops is outstanding.. not over-cloying or sweet, just right amount, to make you want to keep pounding it down your worthless pie-hole

What a cool bottle cap! Light amber pour with little head to speak of. Pleasant medium body. Mostly malt nose, but hints of floral hops permeate. Thick malts and some nice notes of maple and molasses. This has to be one of my favorite Marzen lagers.

Light, malty, crisp. Very sessionable. I could use more malt but it lives up to it’s style and I would recommend it.

Wow! This was a nice beer! Crisp, smooth, and had a citrus flavor to it. A hint of carmel could be detected. Goes down good with some knackwurst and rot kraut.

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

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.

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!

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.
