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.

Found this one in the cooler of a nice little packy in Jersey. Though it was way after October I couldn’t help myself given my appreciation of the style. Poors a hazy gold with significant bubbles and a big loose white head. Aroma is primarily fruity yeast (apples), malty undertones, and some flowers. Sitson the tongue well, not a ton of body, but good for a Marzen smooth needless to say. Malt and cereal/bread flavor seeps into the tongue and mouth. A little bit of spice (maybe peppery?) perhaps coming from the floral hop tastes. Towards the end, I felt like I was getting bits of toasted malt flavor too. Relatively high amount of complexity for an Oktoberfest. Even though this isn’t the optimal age for this beer, the flavor is still exceptionally clean with only the hops lingering and then trailing off. This September I’ll keep an eye out for this one to rerate!

Golden, yellow beer with a big fluffy white head. Looks very carbonated. Smells like apples and malty. Flavour is less like apple juice and more of a general sweet fruitiness, though not overwhelming. Flavour is balanced by slight hint of nuts and spices. Clean taste, refreshing.

500 ml bottle - Pours a hazy copper color with a big, lasting head. The aroma is malty, along with the yeast and a hint of hops. It’s medium bodied, smooth, and has a lightly sweet flavor with good balance. The finish is clean with light hops. This beer is a very nice quality Marzen.

This is a really great beer. Only have had Celebrator and this one from Ayinger but so far they are a winning brewer!

Thanks to my brother-in-law for this one (excellent guy). The aroma checks in with a nice creamy maltyness that smelled clean with no skunk as other reviews may have mentioned. Flavors were really creamy, malty, nutty flavor that was really enjoyable. A really nice beer.

sfontain (851) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 15, 2006
Lovely, hazy, orange-copper; light, bubbly, creamy head. Extremely aromatic, with lots of citrus, along with light caramel, toasty malts, and even some berries; the tinest hint of allspice. Flavor has a lot of orange in it; sweet but clean and not sugary; malty; some wheatiness in there, I think. Medium body; smooth; goes down easy; barely sticky. Excellent, particuarly for the style.

Bottle. Darker ambery color, compared to other Octoberfests sampled together. Rich malty and a touch fruity aroma. More caramel malty flavors, and a touch of bread or dough. Drinks smooth.

Very drinkable for a beer with such rich flavor. Not much on appearance: cloudy and with little head or lace. Nice fruity, floral aroma. Good balance of malt and hops; sweet but not too much so.
