Bottle as shown. Pours a copper golden with a large frothy white head taht lasts awhile. The aroma is a wheat malt with grain and caramel. Good sticky lacing on the glass. Thin mouthfeel with a sour taste and a sweet finish. Easy to drink, a decent marzen from Ayinger. Borup (14303) - Albertslund, DENMARK - SEP 24, 2015
From tap. Clear amber colour with an off-white head. Aroma and flavour of malt, caramel, hops and herbal notes. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 1, 2003
Big beige head atop clear light copper body. Aroma is unusual (which, in an Oktoberfest, is extraordinary) -- mildly sweet, malty, bready. Taste is medium sweet, malty, caramel, toasty. Clean, light-medium body. Pleasant beer, not at all what you generally find in the run-of-the-mill oktoberfest available in the States.
