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 and malty and very much in the vein I like this style. Not too syrupy sweet and very easily drinkable.

Braudog (5578) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - APR 19, 2004
Surprisingly light orangish hue for an Ofest, with a super head. Pungent sweet caramel aroma. Alcohol-malt on the tongue, but it mellows well after the first gulp. Man, I want a bratwurst now.

Dark honey-brown color is nice. The taste is a bit less malty and more bitter than most Oktoberfest braus. Nice head formation.

2003 bottle. A very slightly clouded orange yellow with some bright gold tinges. Aroma of soft and sweet nutty flavored malt and ample spiced hops. Quite enticing. Flavor is right away, moderately malty, brown bread, honey, touch of toffee and has a brilliant but short-lived crisp, clean spicy hops finish. Not a muddled note in this beer. It gets in your mouth does its thing, and clears out. Very even texture, light carbonation. I left this in the sun by accident and came back and finished off half the bottle at about 70 degrees and it was still delightful. No thinning or wateriness in here either. Quite spicy; no real daring flavors but well-made and delicious.

Ida7999 (105) - Milford, Massachusetts, USA - APR 8, 2004
cloudy orange/amber color, large frothy head that dissipates quickly, malty-spicy aroma, a bit of candy sweetness, some fruitiness; flavor is malty with touches of spiciness, a fruity background, a precise and strong sweetness - but not cloying, flavor doesn’t quite live up to the aroma, a bit tingly with a decent texture

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - APR 6, 2004
Amber with weak white head. Interesting aroma. Floral, herbal, sweet, fruity, bready. Mildly sweet and acidic taste. Carbonation. Unimpressive.

wulfhere (217) - Billings, Montana, USA - JAN 29, 2004
deep amber color with large tan colored head showing fine bubbles, good brussels lace on the glass as is goes down. Nose is funky--kind of like bread, with maltiness forward and supporting floral hops. Taste is a bit drier than expected, with subtle hops and decent maltiness. A nice take on the style.

Very Interesting oktober fest brew. Finish is slightly dry. Interesting combination of hops for an oktober fest brew. Worth a sample.
