When an enemy does a men-at-arms forward, it contains a stronger punch, but takes longer to prepare than a standard forward. If you've scouted the forward (as you have here), the most reliable response is to wall off your vital economic zones, research town watch and put up a stable or an archery range (depending on the circumstances). In this case, your map was very open, so it would have been better to concede your main gold, get a tower up on the berries and build up your economy behind your town centre, which is easier to defend. I would have put up a stable and got out a few scouts because these can deal with the men-at-arms and the reinforcement distance for spearmen is a lot larger than it would be in a standard forward.

Your transition onto stone was understandable because Teutons normally go for tower rushes, but in this case, it put you behind in military production, which allowed him to wall up your range, because it was so exposed. Towers are a powerful tool for defending, but they cannot be used as a substitute for army. The big advantage defenders have in a forward is their economy will be stronger, which allows them to advance earlier. If you neglect army, you will have to build towers everywhere in your economy, which delays the castle age a lot. A couple of towers allows you to defend with less army, which allows an earlier advancement.
