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 (3033) - 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 (6510) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 23, 2012

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
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.BrewBoxer (2636) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 24, 2013

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!
Draft at the stone street tavern NYC. Taste crisp and malty with a nice bready fall flavor. Petty good for a style I generally don't like

Draft at Alla Spina with Pat and Sean Tommy. Pours a clean amber with medium white head and soapy lace. Nose of bread, caramel, roast. Medium body. A little hop bitterness. DocJitsu (1979) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - JUL 17, 2014
Pours a clear, copper-golden color with a large light tan head. Some carbonation bubbles migrate from the bottom. Sorghum and Christmas pull candy on the nose. Puffy mouthfeel with a slight burn on the rear of the palate. The bitterness profile cuts the sweetness expected from the aroma. It imparts a fruitiness where the sweet pull candy and sorghum would’ve otherwise dominated. KyotoLefty (10264) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 1, 2014
Bottle from Nathaniel’s. Pretty amber-orange, clear, fine thick head. Nutty, malty nose, light caramel, earthy hops, light peach and orange. Sweet fruity, nutty, malty, some raisins. A bit old, perhaps. Tasty, rich, fruity, and malty. Good, but did not move me as I was hoping it would. I really need to try this fresh in Germany on tap. DrSteveBrule (52) - - SEP 6, 2014
500 ml bottle from Trader Joe's. Deep golden color and good, active white head. Aroma is pretty strong compared to others in the style. Malty and bready, sweet nose. The taste matches the smell for most part. High level of carbonation. Pretty good.

Slightly oversweet fest beer with a sturdy maltiness and little in the way of hops. Smooth drinking but a little short on flavor.
