Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. Toasty and sweet malty aroma with some light nutty notes. The flavor has sweet malts, toffee, nuts, toast, and a light floral hoppy bitterness. Good stuff.

dougdecinces (118) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - NOV 18, 2011
Bottle from Trader Joe. Poured a brilliant, crystal-clear copper. Nice pillowy head and good lacing. Smelled sweet malt, caramel and biscuit. Body is lighter than expected and carbonation is higher than expected, but this is a very malty beer nonetheless. It has a faintly astringent/cloyingly sweet aftertaste at first, but I got used to it quickly. Good beer.

cmonster (1000) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 27, 2012
Bottle served in a lager glass. Pours clear, watery, dark orange with a short head. Nice aroma of bready malt. Medium sweet flavor of nutty, toasted malt. Medium body, average carbonation, creamy-oily texture, and a long, malty finish. Excellent amber lager.

AndresTM (434) - Texas, USA - SEP 18, 2012
Aroma of roasted grain, bread, a touch of caramel, and floral hops. Mild taste with some hop bitterness, grain, and a bit of ashes. Slick mouthfeel. Very drinkable.

TET (2837) - Kaarina, FINLAND - SEP 21, 2012
A beautiful, reddish beer with a medium and blond head. Aroma of smooth malts, toffee, hint of berries and of smoke. Nice aroma, but it’s difficult to get out aromas. Taste is malty and bready, hint of roastiness and smoke, aftertaste is nicely dry. Medium bodied, nice to drink. High-quality and enjoyable beer again from Ayinger.

ben4321 (6071) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 23, 2012
Location: 500 ml bottle from Buy Rite, 9/23/12

Aroma: It has a clean, malty aroma, caramel, bread, and notes of vegetables
Appearance: It pours a clear orange color with a small head and light lace on the glass
Flavor: The flavor has a clean, crisp maltiness, caramel and bready flavors similar to the nose
Palate: The body is light, leaning medium, it is rather drinkable, with a clean feel, and a crisp finish
Overall Impression: Alright, Kramer, ticking this one just for you buddy! Not a bad beer at all, but still not significantly better then anything else in this style for me to really have a strong feeling about it. I wanted to really like it, I did. However, it is really just solid, highly drinkable, but just unexciting...and you could really describe my entire opinion on this style that way. It really isn’t much better then the standards like Hofbrau, Hacker-Pschorr, Sam Adams, etc.

esox (1225) - Oulu, FINLAND - SEP 29, 2012
Amber and somewhat hazy beer with lacy head. Fresh, bready maltiness, yeast and a good pinch of herbal hops. Round, bready malts, slightly honeyish. Dryish finish with yeast and mellow bitterness. Medium body, soft texture, slightly oily.
Earlier Rating: 10/13/2011 Total Score: 3.8
Draught. Clear, darkish golden colour, thin creamy head. Lovely, deep malt aroma has creamy toffee notes and, sweet breadiness and some grains. Delicate frutiness, dates and dried apricots. Light herbal hoppiness and noticable bitterness for the style make it well balanced. Very smooth texture, almost full body and very good drinkability. A high-class märzen!
