4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Beautiful pour - a bright amber with lazy carbonation and a pillowy head. The aroma is of fresh baked bread with a honey glazing. This is creamy in the mouth, almost to the point of being chewable. The flavor is toasty and sweet with a touch of herbal hops appearing near the finish, which is sweet but clean. An excellent Oktoberfest. I’ll be having more of these shortly.

The beer pours an orange-amber color with a large white head. The aroma is heavy on the nutty and toffee malts with a little bit of grass thrown in from the hops. The flavor is is full of toffee, caramel and biscuit malts. There are some nice floral hop notes in the flavor as well which really add to the flavor profile. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very easy to drink and one of the best German-brewed märzens out there.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2007 Spectacular surprise on tap at the Ayinger outlet off Marianplatz in Munchen. This was the hoppiest Bavarian beer I have tried to date and extremely pleasant because of it. Reddish in color, which is unique to the array of Bavarian beers too. Really a splendid festbier. Alcohol is undetectable in the taste or palate but permeates your body with pleasure. I’m so grateful I was at the brewery outlet in Munich during fest time.
