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. 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 (3030) - 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.

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.
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.mithrilbalrog (24) - Ithaca, USA - SEP 29, 2012

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!
Pours reddish orange with a frothy head that dissipates gradually. Smells of caramel, leaves and hay. Very light flavor with medium bitterness. northropfrye (3593) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 6, 2012
Dark orange colour. Sweet and malty with a nice lively palate. A quality marzen. ccex (1313) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 9, 2012
500ml bottle pours a clear gold/amber with large white head but little lacing. Smells grainy and yeasty. Aroma is malty with lots of bread, some grass, some honey. Taste is sweet without much hops presence, but with a clean finish. Body is medium with average carbonation. This is very decent for what is admittedly not a favorite style of mine. mikkopen (1164) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 10, 2012
500 ml bottle. Hazy reddish amber colout, medium off-white head. Malty, slightly earthy aroma with notes of yeast and grassy hops. The flavour is bready-malty, with yeasty and fruity notes, and a moderately bitter, grassy-hoppy finish. Medium-bodied, smoothly carbonated.
