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.

KingPinHead (390) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - OCT 1, 2002
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!

This is more on par with Celebrator than their Ur-weisse, but still not quite at that level. Purple grape juice aroma with hint of chocolate. Reddish-brown hue and consistent head lead to a light, slightly bubbly mouthfeel. Malty and predominantly flavored by grape, this is a great brew. A bit rich, not something I could drink all night, this should probably be enjoyed only once every so often.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2007 Had this fresh at the tap room in Munich and I have had oxidized bottles. I will rate the tap room verison outstanding. Page 33 of MJ’s GBG only 199 of his Classic 500 Brews to go.

JohnQPublic (387) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - SEP 25, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2009 Bottle. Pours clear dark gold with a big, fluffy off-white head. Nose is grassy hops and a bit of nice, clean, sweet bready malt. Taste is crisp and clean, bready malt with a bit of caramel, hint of brown sugar, perfect amount of grassy hops on the finish to balance. Medium bodied and medium carbonation. Really nice - nothing in the least bit extreme, but still supremely satisfying on one of the first cool evenings of fall.

Poured from a 16.9 ounce bottle into an nonic pint glass. Appearance: This one gushed out of the bottle as soon as it was cracked. Once I cleaned things up, it pours a honey gold with orange highlights and a 1-2 finger foamy off-white head. Minimal lacing. Smell: Sweet German malt with sweet grains and a touch of spices. Very sweet aroma. Taste: Sweet bready grains up front followed by lightly roasted malt in the middle before ending with a touch of earthy hops. The aftertaste is dry, earthy and just a little bitter. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with a high amount of prickly carbonation. Drinkability: High drinkability. Goes down smooth and easy. I could knock back a few in the right situation. Overall: Very good beer overall. One of the better Octoberfest beers on the market. Give it a shot.

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.
