From a bottle. Pours a clear gold with an off white head. Aroma of toast. Flavors of bread and toffee. Smooth clean finish. Fantastic for the style.

500 ml bottle bought at Gorgeous Wine & Cigar in Yuen Long.

Looks: Clear amber orange colour; Explosive two-finger head and crumpety off white foam which lasts for 3 minutes; Very good sticky lacing with fizzy carbonation.

Aroma: Very fragrant and sweet malt, with strong honey, orange, nuts, caramel, strong floral, sugar, bread, lemon and light grass.

Taste: Medium sweet full malt, with honey, light caramel, light floral, strong molasses, bread, light lemon and fair to light bitter grassy hops.

Body: Mid to light; Very slick palate.

Mouth Feel: Very good maltyness in a solid, slightly thick background. Has a understated strong lager feel, with good roundness, light honey backdrop with light floral and molasses. Fairly bready with light lemon to round. Clean and effective!

Hoppiness: Orange blossom, lemon and light grass in nose. Light floral, light lemon and fair grassy in taste; Bitterness is light for an abrupt, low-fi astringent flowery finish.

After Taste: Slightly dry. Nicely sweet and slightly bitter to mouth.

Comments: This one has good looks, nice orangey floral nutty aroma, subtle honey maltyness in taste with low hoppy finish. Nothing outlandish yet brewed for the occasion with right amount of characters. Very easy to enjoy and appreciate. Nice one!

Beautiful hazy copper with medium beige head. Aroma is malty dough with some nuts and roast. Also some noble hops. Taste is malty sweetness with roasty bitterness, Also a fresh sourness. Pleasant mouthfeel of many medium bubbles. Lots of malts in the finish. Medium to full body. Long finish. Fresh. Wow.

anstei (2254) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - SEP 16, 2016
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.

luttonm (6274) - 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.

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. Pours reddish amber with medium sized head. Some caramel, yeast, herbal hops. Quite sharp notes of alcohol. Sweet finish.

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.
