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.

Nice translucent copper with huge foamy white head. Lots of bubbles as well. Nose is somewhat quiet, but has a nice nutty note and maltiness to it. Much more flavor than nose. Initally pretty malty and somewhat sweet, but not overly so. Some notes of toast and almonds are apparent. Finishes with crisp hops and a tad of the accompanying bitterness. You know its fall when you see this on the shelf. Solid brewer.

500ml bottle. Golden Amber hue. Corn, butter and slight bananas in the nose. Also get a nice mild cinnamon and caramel aroma from the malts. Three fingers of off-white head. Sweet grainy, malt flavor. Definitely malt driven, and the hops are mild and smooth with a lingering tingling sensation on the tongue. This beer is at least medium bodied, but the caramel malt smoothness makes it very quaffable in the coming chill of Autumn. Another delicious brew from Ayinger, and the best Oktoberfest of the year, thus far.

Clear, bold and bright orange in color with a frothy and off-white head that provides a lasting creaminess throughout. Aroma puts on a malt clinic - caramel and roasted malts smell exquisite, and are joined by peppered grain, cornucopia and chestnuts. Flavor leads in with sweet caramel and almond butter. Corn husks, grain and roasty malts are omnipresent with toning contributions from toffee and butterscotch. Sweet and medium to full bodied. Spritsy, solid and well balanced, finishing like caramel corn. One of the best Oktoberfests I’ve had the pleasure of meeting.

Bottle to start the Oktober Fest season! A Marzen that is somewhat leaning to a reddish amber brown hue in color. Slight sweet malt on the tongue and palate; the same on the nose and in aroma. A softer balanced body, medium in substance and alcohol content. A fine product.

Bottle. Nice cap. Clear orange/amber color with big rocky head. The aroma is of toasty malt, with just a hint of hops. The taste starts off very malty, with toasty caramel notes and enough bitterness to balance. It still finishes with a bittering dryness balanced with a lingering maltiness. I like it.

,5L bottle. arrived today. Ultimately fresh. nice classic aroma, with toasty malt. crystal clear, beautiful amber hue, tall, tight rocky head (it DID just arrive, after all). slightly sweet, low bitterness, lower than Hofbrau, but nicely balanced. i could drink a ton of these. i wish i were drinking it from a liter stien in the Theresienwiese. Top notch ’Festbier. (i couldn’t help but notice that some recent reviews told of hazy or cloudy beer--you guys got duped into drinking OLD PRODUCT. this stuff’s beautifully clear when fresh. go back to the store you bought it from and complain, then RE-RATE!)

Bottle. Cloudy orange amber with a huge head. Aroma is sweet and flowery with bready malt. Taste is sweet toffee malt with a bit of caramel and alcohol. Medium bodied with a dry hops finish and mild carbonation. Has to warm a bit before drinking or it comes across as downright watery. Good beer but a bit sweet.

500mL bottle. Label is slightly different than that in the picture. A bad-ass bottle cap that features a picture of people boozing it up. A hazy copper pour with a few floaties and a smallish off-white head that leaves some lace. Sweet, caramel and malty aroma. Flavor is all sweet, caramelly and toffee maltiness. There’s actually a slight presence of alcohol which is surprising considering the low ABV. Still, it’s easy to drink and is a good transition from the light summer beers to the heartier winter ones.

Poured a beautiful copper penny color with a tight white haed that lasted most of the way through the glass. Aroma of fresh bread, and although on the sweet side, it really has a great body with well disguised alcohol. A really good Oktoberfest that I will be buying with regularity.

Tap at Papago; Sweet malty aroma. Hazy orange body with thin head and some lacing. Flavor was like sweet candy some tangy flavor also. Dry palate. Ok beer
