COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Amber in color. This medium bodied beer has achieved its impeccable taste by balancing the roasted malt flavor with the perfect amount of hops. Having a rich textured palate with an underlying sweetness true to tradition.

DSG (5782) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 21, 2013
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.

EdInSaltLake (639) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - NOV 10, 2013
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fritz123 (1001) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - NOV 1, 2013
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.

kkleu357 (289) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 31, 2013
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.

pkbites (688) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 23, 2013
Bronze pour, caramel metallic aroma. Malty caramel with bready goodness is FUCKING RUINED by the skunkiness caused by the GODDAMNED GREEN BOTTLE!!! Good beer gone bad due to the bottle not the beer itself. I’m so pissed at idiot "we know everything" brewers and their insistence of using green or clear bottles! JERKS!

Pours amber-brown bronze with a tan-white that settles to a nice coating. Just a bit of lacing. Aroma is bread, corn, malt. Taste is lager all the way with semi-sweet bready malt (a bit roasted) balanced with noble hop bitterness. This balance gives a very slight smoky quality. The mild bitterness lingers but gives way to a sweet malty aftertaste. Crisp, with moderate carbonation and not the smoothest sip - makes sense for the style. A classic that is the ne plus ultra of the Oktoberfest Marzen style and one of my fall favorites. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
