Aying Marzens is also one of the beer types to look forward to this coming Oktoberfest. It originates from the Ayinger Brewery in Aying that is a known for its best Oktoberfest beers. It has a golden tint with a little bit of amber and has an aroma that offers a balance of slightly sweet malt. It tastes like caramel and nutty malt with a perfect pitch that that fights the lingering sweetness of the beer. Its moderate alcohol content is not overpowering and is the perfect drink for a plate of sausage and sauerkraut.
