luttonm (5719) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 13, 2016
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.

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.

kingaugusta (264) - Georgia, USA - SEP 12, 2016
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.

500ml bottle from LCBO. 5.8% alc/vol Pours a clear deep golden colour with 1/2 finger of white head that reduces to a cap. Aromas of roasted matls, caramel, toffee, and a whiff of honey with some grainy notes. Taste matches the aroma. Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. Very enjoyable.

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!

gegwilson (3627) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2016
Bottle from Rehills of Jesmond. Pours hazy amber with a cream coloured head. Mild fruity aroma. The taste has light spice and toasty malts. A light fruitiness too. OK.

Shared 16.9 oz. bottle. Pour is deep gold and hazy with a thick white head. Aroma is bready, caramel, and light floral hops. Taste follows nose. Finish is mildly bitter and mildly sweet. Very drinkable.

Aroma: malty and sweet with underlying hops; Appearance: clear amber with medium white head that dissipates slowly; Taste: malty and sweet with some bready, apple-like flavors; Palate; medium body with crisp, long and sweet finish; Overall: pretty good but not my favorite style. Would drink again.
