COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ayinger Oktober Fest Märzen has a deep golden color tinted with amber. It is lightly sweet with a malty nose balanced with floral hops. Its medium to big body and alcohol is not overpowering. The soft dryness comes from long maturation.

Bottle pours light amber, small white milk froth like head, soft carbonation, with spotty lacing.   Malts and grain on the nose, slight caramel.   Very light tasting, malty with a subtle hop note.   Medium body and mouthfeel.   Finishes quickly, dry, with a slightly toasted malt flavor.   A pleasing Oktoberfest, albeit rather simple.

Hazy light orange in color with a small but lasting head. Aroma is nutty and very malty. The flavor is very malty with some balancing bitterness. Very easy to drink: luckily my two half liters were on a Friday night.

A very malty Oktoberfest beer and very flavorful. Not much in terms of hoppiness in this brew, since the nutty caramel character of this brew overshadows everything else here. I like this brew, but make sure you’re a malt fan if you try it.

Hangover (1056) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - JUL 3, 2004
Felt like a fest beer and this is all I could find in July. Light brown color with a surprisingly thick and lasting eggshell white head. Very malty aroma. Taste is all malt of course, but not too sweet. Some caramel and floral hops as well. Creamy mouthfeel and a pleasant finish, not too sticky like many marzens. Dangerously quaffable for an oktoberfest... I’ll be drinkin this again in a few months.

On tap at the Flying Saucer in Charlotte. Clear golden coloring with a diminishing white head. Flavor was extremely malty with some mild spices. Probably the best Marzen I’ve had.

On tap. A good Marzen, better than Spaten’s. It was full of spices, though not as refresing as most lagers, but that’s mainly due to it being a Marzen.

ross (2073) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - JUN 22, 2004
bottle from a local german restauraunt. pours dark orange with a nice tan head. taste is sweet and refreshing. maybe a little too filling for an oktober fest, or maybe all the sausage i ate was what was filling. pretty malty tasting, but not bad. i like this, and id buy it again if i see it. good

Had this one a while back but forgot to rate it. This a sweet one for an oktoberfest style of beer. Easy to drink and very refreshing.
