Bottle plucked an LCBO just as it arrived fashionably late in the last week of November. Pours a nice clear amber with white head. Nose is fruity malt, grain floral hops. Taste hits you with some fruity esters up front and nice grain malt on the finish. Nice even in November. Crafty07 (404) - Florence, Kentucky, USA - APR 27, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2007 I keep looking for a unlikable beer made by this excellent brewery and, fortunaltely for me, I haven’t found it yet.
I can’t descibe it better than the commerical description, ’lightly sweet with a malty nose, balanced with floral hops and soft dryness’..
well done. Awktoberfest (404) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAR 8, 2013
Nice solid Oktoberfest ... Very traditional and German tasting:)...a joy to drink!

From bottle to dimpled much. Pour is a deep hold, amber tint with a quickly dissipating tan head. Nose is what you would expect out of a marzen, nice and bready, roasted malt, slight caramel. Light-medium body, bitter but also sweet. Thicker feel, great carbonation. Should be the standard for the style. falco242 (398) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 22, 2013
I’m a huge Ayinger fan, and this beer should define the style in my opinion. Toasted malt with a nice bready touch but easy to drink and ends a bit sweet. I’m not huge on the October style, but it is hard to not love this beer.

Draft @ BSP, /5L. Pours a nice amber gold with thick, residual head. Nose of bread, caramel, floral hops, full bodied yet quite quaffable, tasty malt sweetness backed by well balanced bitter finish. A standard for the style. TerryR (391) - Oswego, Illinois, USA - SEP 1, 2004
Bottle. Amber color. Malt nose. Medium bodied with sweet malt flavor. Mild hop note. Liquid bread. cattaneopapa (391) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 27, 2016
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.

Fine peach-gold color with a creamy white head---speckled lace...Aroma quite light and slightly sweet, like some tree fruits...Mellow sweet malt front with slightly roastier undertones in tow...Equally mellow hop top-end and characterisitic mild spiciness in finish are all expertly proportioned, and flavors seem to be released in a one, two, three sequence---an amusing sensation! This has good body compared to most Marzens, and fine mouthfeel which owes (in part) to very restrained carbonation...This is as smooth a beer as one will find in this style...Thoroughly enjoyable...Get it while you can!

A great beer for an excellent price! Once in awhile it pays to go to the source of excellent beer!
