Malts, sweet, a little hops. Caramel, bready, toasty. Very balanced. Tastes similar. Remarkably balanced, very smooth. Nice ending, perfect amount of sweetness
Great way to start Oktoberfest!!!!!! Stephen_S (20) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 17, 2013
This beer brings me back to the time I was travelling on a train from Salzburg to Munich for the 2012 Oktoberfest. On the train I met a few locals and I decided to challenge the Germans to a beer drinking contest. By the time the first German hit the ground drunk I was about 6 liters deep and they were somewhere on their 4th and 5th. The weather was great that day tytm12 (3) - Peru, Illinois, USA - SEP 23, 2014 does not count
If you have traveled Europe and the U.S. sampling the best marzen beers available.... you know the German quality is easily superior and this beer being one of the best overall. kcdoom (18) - merriam, Kansas, USA - SEP 25, 2009

One of the best oktoberfest beers. The malty nose and citrus hops make for a great relaxing birra!

A solid offering from what some consider to be the best Munich-area brewery, Copper-colored with very little head, lingering finish and fairly sweet. Good hops, balances the malt very well. SPDickerman (1239) - Texas, USA - AUG 29, 2011
Pours perfectly clear copper-orange with fluffy, off-white head. Smells malty and kind of sweet with a touch of hops. Taste follows the nose, it’s good but nothing super outstanding, but probably the best of the style I’ve ever had. Medium-bodied with a smooth, wet texture and decent mouth-carbonation, Ayinger Oktober Fest-Märzen finishes lightly crisp. generallee08 (772) - New York, USA - JUN 24, 2014
It has a rich deep golden color with very good clarity and some nice carbonation flowing up to the head. The head has a creamy off white color and rises up tall in the glass before slowly settling down to a nice foamy cap. In the nose there are some sweet bready and light toasted notes with light grain and some floral/spicy hops. The flavor has a very enjoyable malty character. There is mild sweetness, bready and light toasted grain notes, pie crust and very light caramel notes. This is balanced by some mild bitterness and notes of spicy/floral hops. The hops turn more leafy and mineral like in the finish which is crisp and refreshing. Its body has a solid medium to full feel with well balanced carbonation.

Oh if it only had that slightly dry roastiness that I crave so much in the finish. Oh well, still an exemplary beer. Lager43 (46) - Watertown, Connecticut, USA - JUL 18, 2017
The best of the Octoberfest beers. I say this having had at least one hundred plus Octoberfest biers. This is the one! That wonderful marzen flavor! Prost!
