Cloudy with a thick head and thick body that appears to stifle the bubbles from rising. Very thick creamy mouthfeel with some nice Marzen maltiness. The citrus twang and yeasty bite was weird and this appeared to be fairly high in ABV. An interesting brew to say the least, with some HefeWeiss qualities. One to try, just not in excess. This brew was a meal in itself. dins (266) - Texas, USA - OCT 26, 2001
I'm not a big fan of this style but this is a nice one. ................... Andrew196 (2040) - Katy, Texas, USA - AUG 2, 2002
Decent sized head. Aroma and taste are one in the same....sweet and woody...very typical of the style, but on the upper end of it. Panzuriel (2446) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - AUG 17, 2002
MY favorite of the Ayinger offerings. Malty and nice. Great color and head. sarie99 (50) - San Francisco, Alabama, USA - SEP 2, 2002
Light copper color. Sweet light malty flavor. Very enjoyable..............

Golden peach color. Small head. Nice, strong wheat, malt nose. This is a good marzen, not as malty as some other Oktoberfests, but overall rather good. Nuffield (4245) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 11, 2002
Deep color, hazy but not to the extreme. Bold aroma, spicy, hints of yeast. Interesting layers of flavor, malty and sweet, although a moment or two of sickly sweetness. Mild carbonation--it lost its large head rather quickly and, to my palate, was a bit flat very soon in. Still, very good. brian1233 (30) - North Augusta, South Carolina, USA - DEC 25, 2002
Deep orange and hazy with an off white head. Malty and fruity with a mildly spicy aftertaste. Little aroma to make note of. kwoeltje (2234) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - JAN 16, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2003 Cloudy orange. Vigorous head. Smooth malt flavor, fairly mild. Hint of hops at the end for balance. YnotABeer (96) - Missouri, USA - MAY 16, 2003
Didn't like it at first, but then the hearty malty body comes in and tastes great. Alcohol isn't really noticeable and the bitterness and hops seemed just right. Good, a really cool cap, but pricey.
