Bottle as shown. Pours a copper golden with a large frothy white head taht lasts awhile. The aroma is a wheat malt with grain and caramel. Good sticky lacing on the glass. Thin mouthfeel with a sour taste and a sweet finish. Easy to drink, a decent marzen from Ayinger.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Orangish-amber and slightly cloudy with a big off-white head. Aroma is of slightly toasted malts. Flavor is a rich malty, but very smopoth and not heavy - somewhat nutty with a bit of spice. This is easy to drink and I'd be willing to drink a lot of it.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle. Pours a orangeish hue, with a powerful frothy head that dies down after a few minutes. The taste is smooth and easy; a soft malty sweetness, some bitterness and floral hops, and some spice. A good drink. Easy and tasty.

This is a nice oktoberfest but i’ve had 5 others this week and this was the most bitter and least sweet, i like a sweeter marzen..anyway, this is medium copper(red too) colour with impress head, adequate lacing..like i said, at tad on the bitter side, but still some good flavours in the beer..an good subtle beer i could see myself drinking allday, but needs to be sweeter, or on draft..

A little above your average ’average’ Octoberfest brew, and gets tastier after a while, but not a market leader.

Shared bottle to snifter (thanks DrSilverworm). Looks good; a transparent light-orange with thin white lacing. Smells solid; malty, golly, and pleasantly skunky. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A great example of the style.
