Finally bit the bullet and bought a bottle. Great amber color with fluffy white/off-white head. Moderate carbonation. Aroma is sweet caramel malts and alittle light hops and a little skunk. A very mellow malt sweetness with crisp hop/dry finish. Extremely drinkable, but like the Celebrator, lacking that flavor impact that I was expecting. Again, for being at the top of rankings for Marzen, I am somewhat dissappointed and surprised. Starting to think that its not worth paying the import price when local breweries have better offerings in these styles, and could much more use my dime.

kustie (1010) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 10, 2016
Bottle. Amber color with off-white head. Aroma has some caramel, malt, grass and toffee. Taste is malty with quite long fairly dry aftertaste. Flavors of malt, bread, grassy hops and honey. A bit simple but well balanced, refreshing and tasty.

Light malt and slight floral aroma with golden copper color and a light foamy head. Well balanced flavor between malt and hops. Finishes fairly clean.

Christian (13078) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 7, 2016
Hazy dark golden with a lasting white head. Malty aroma with bread and biscuit, a touch of fruit and herbal hops. Sweetish malty flavour with bread and biscuit and a touch of apple. Light bitter finish.

rozsoma (998) - Gyõr, HUNGARY - DEC 5, 2016
Hát, az igazat megvallva fogg-almam sincs, hogy kerül ez ide a top4-be. Én kirtabier néven ittam, a sörgyárba vettem, de semmi extra: malátás, édeskés, kissé alkoholos tucatsör. Nem értem én ezt.

lesifflebiere (1747) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 20, 2016
Une bière cuivrée, à la carbonatation joyeuse et aux effluves épicées et vaguement fruitées, sucrée en bouche. Les malts sont indéniablement la vedette ici, et si on souhaiterait un peu plus de complexité, les notes de caramel et de citrouille amènent une jolie rondeur et une buvabilité surprenante.

500 ml bottle. Pours a brown/amber with moderate head. Soft and malty, slightly sweet almost like honey. Pleasant stuff.

Likely my favorite Oktoberfest. Bready malt flavors with some sweetness. Slight bitterness enters just at the very end. Overall well balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle straight from Aying brewery outlet, just put on sale. Amber color, cloudy, big white head. Aroma is malty, yeasty with noble hops backing, light caramel and berries, cookies, light almond. Taste is sweetish and well balanced, finish is rather dry. Smooth creamy texture, some dust, medium body, soft carbonation. Nice and lovely as expectable from Ayinger, glad enough to have found this in my last trip to Aying.
