Tap at Ayinger Bräustüberl. A malt-forward light-ish beer that I rather like, wow! Dry sweetness with some bitterness. Incredibly balanced, not watery, some bread, light, lively carbonation. I would drink much more Märzen if all of them were like this.

Bottle in Seattle. Quite creamy white foam, golden brown body. Sweet, rich caramel malt. Modest sweetness, much richer body above the lager crispness. Caramel, wooden grain, some alcohol flavor. Quite sweet but rounded out nicely. Nice rich festbier.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Overall i wasnt impressed with Ayingers marzen. It poured a deep amber body with minimal carbonation, thin head very little lace. Aroma and flavor both had slight hints of caramel and a flavor reminisant of candy corn, kind of odd. I usually like this style of beer and this brewer but this just wasn’t that good. Re-rate on 9-15-09 Nice aroma and flavor some fruit/ floral notes with hints of caramel. much better the second time around from a 3.0 to a 3.6 Originally rated on 10/15/08.

Pours clear gold with a frothy white head. Nose is Bavarian hops and sweet German malts. Flavor is similar and rich and very well balanced with a touch of spice. Body is smooth and light. Very drinkable.

Can’t believe that i haven’t rated this one yet... 500mL bottle served in a shaker- poured transparent copper color, half finger white head formed and laced very well and lasted for over 10 minutes while the other half had some tasks for me (ugh- it’s me time damnit!). Aroma of freshly baked bread, yeast, and wholesome goodness. Hits the mouth with a light-medium body, malt isn’t overly sweet and comes across nicely, middle holds up well, finish is slightly sweet and has some fruit. Very delightful!
