3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not your average Munich Marzen. Features a Exceptionally dark amber color for an Oktoberfest beer, with a standard malty aroma. I found the taste to be enjoyably more complex for a marzen, with roasted malt notes, slight herbal hoppy contrast, and a sweet finish and aftertaste.
Smooth enough, medium bodied.

Decent example of an authentic German style marzen. Light colored but with strong caramel flavors.

Bottle. Crystal clear amber with a white head. Aroma of malt, toast, bread, some caramel and light vegetal hint. Sweetish flavor, malty, toasty, with a bit of caramel, bready notes and a drier finish with a light bitter herbal note. Medium-bodied. Easy-drinking.

The Paulaner and the Ayinger Oktoberfests are indistinguishable. This beer has a more pronounced toasty caramel flavor and a diminished carbonation bite.

Lager yeast, lightly sweet malt, and skunky aroma. Sugary sweet malt flavor, green apple-ish fruit, lager yeast. Some skunked flavor (less than the aroma).
Definitely need to rate this again--especially if it’s not in a green bottle.

By far my favorite Oktoberfest. Pours a beautiful clear dark amber. Rich caramel and toasted malts. Nicely balanced.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours amber with a off white head. Taste carmel malt, sweet. I thought this was pretty good. I would drink this again.

Draft at Bier garden in Boca Raton. Dimpled mug. Pours a hazy golden amber with a one finger white head. Good lacing. Malty aroma with caramel and leather. Well balanced creamy marzen with great malt presence.

Love the rich brown color, but not the skunky smell. Favorite beer of the style by far, which isn’t saying much.

Poured a light brown color. Not a very pleasant smell. Skunky smell. Tastes good though. One of the better tasting Oktoberfest beers I’ve had.
