500 ml bottle. Pours a golden orange, perfect Oktoberfest color with a moderate off-white head. Aroma is Munich malts and German hops. Taste follows the nose. This is a light, easy to drink beer. It’s not the most interesting Oktoberfest I’ve tried, but it is the most well-crafted and probably the best overall. I like it.
tried it as Ayinger Kirtabier... the aroma is malty and floral with hints of nuts, brown bread, grain and some herbs... the taste is malty and floral with notes of brown bread, nuts, grain, flowers and some grasses... sweet, dry and bitter aftertaste... laminarman (40) - - JAN 27, 2018
Light copper with a slightly off color head. Aromas of sweet malt, very slight bitterness, and a fine, long, oily/viscous mouth feel. Solid yeasty character. First time I've had this, it will NOT be the last. Went down way too fast for a full bodied beer. Delicious. djoeye (5510) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 23, 2018

Bottle, courtesy of SinH4. Thanks Stefan! Pours a slightly murky copper with a small, bubbly off-white head. Bread, light caramel, floral, dark fruits, a bit spicy. Slightly sweet, with a good, round mineralic touch of the water, and light bitterness. Bubbly natural carbonation on a slick, oily body. YantarCoast (1665) - Moscow, RUSSIA - JAN 4, 2018
Rating number 500. When I started out on here, I wouldn't have believed I'll end up with a lager as one of my "milestones". But being on here, talking to fellow enthusiasts, tasting great stuff far off the conventional track of Austrian makros, has taught me that lager can be a lot more than when you first try it. This one is no exception. Slick, with great carbonation, character and insane drinkability. They surely know how to brew top notch stuff in Aying. Thanks for the supply, Stefan, it's a real pleasure to have met you!

Strong malty aroma. Dark gold in color with massive long lasting head. Taste is richly of lighter caramel malts. Light notes of caramel and honey. Carlisle (881) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 18, 2017
Bottle (1 pint 0.9 oz). Pours bright copper with off-white head that dissipates quickly. Nose of bready malt, some stone fruit, and floral notes. Rich caramel flavor with honey and some floral notes. Long finish. Nische (2729) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 17, 2017
Bottle from SinH4, many thanks! As Kirtabier. Pours clear, deep, amber with a beige head. Fine bubbles. A bit of butterscotch, toast bread, molasses and some grass. Soft feel. Rugamu (200) - SPAIN - DEC 7, 2017
Marzen espectacular, de lo mejor en su categor�a, se bebe sola, en paladar es un espect�culo, olor a cereales que llama. Repetir�a sin dudar. smroush (311) - Michigan, USA - DEC 2, 2017
Aromas of toffee and bread with hints of butterscotch, molasses and some nutty flavor. Pretty much no hop aromas.
Color is a clear attractive amber; head is a sparse off-white.
Taste starts wit a little sweetness but then finishes dry. Light bitterness.
Texture is a bit lively carbonation; light to medium body; medium length finish.
Overall a pretty true to form Marzen, though relatively low complexity.
