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.

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

Amber with weak white head. Interesting aroma. Floral, herbal, sweet, fruity, bready. Mildly sweet and acidic taste. Carbonation. Unimpressive.

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.

My first Octoberfest beer, and I really enjoyed it. The head lasts, and the aroma was like honey and flowers. Slight note of alcohol, but seems to add the beer.

Pours a murky yellow-green the color of almost dry hay and smells roughly the same way. The typical billowy head with good retention and lace that sheets, leaving the inside of the glass looking like a victim of tectonic drift. Smells pretty floral with a touch of alcohol. Finishes clean and dry. Good firm body. Very slightly spicy to complement the sweet. An interesting Octoberfest, perhaps a little past its prime in January.

Pretty good Octoberfest. Nothing special, but nothing offensive. Kind of on the light. Color was an orange-copper.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2010 One of my new favorite oktoberfests. A bit on the light side, as it is a light copper color, but still looked nice, as the head lasted a while. Aroma is of munich malts with no hop aroma. Flavor is very rich with malt and backed up by just a slight bitterness at the end. Medium to slight body.

Good and sweet. I'm not absolutely blown away, because I think it could use a bit more body, but good complexity of flavors.

Bottle: mostly malt in the nose. Dark gold to amber appearance with a nice white head. Oddly creamy mouthfeel. Didn't look so carbonated, but it did feel like it. Nice malty flavor. I like this one.
