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.

Pours a honey amber with a big fluffly rocky white head. Nice carmelly aroma, subtle hoppiness in the nose. Perfectly balanced in the mouth... exactly what a Maerzen should be. Malty, balanced noble hop bitterness, clean finish. Beautiful beer.

Gem of a spring ale. Pours an orangey-caramel colour with a lively head. Fresh, zesty hop aroma. Creamy palate. Fabulously refreshing - like a good fruit salad. Pears especially. Hint of nuts in the background. Wonderfully balanced.

Draft (or draught..whats the difference?) Beautiful orange color with small white head..I could drink this all day. Lisa, working at the Flying Saucer, makes this more enjoyable.

This is definitely one of my favorite oktoberfest examples. I could wish for more nose in this beer, but it’s certainly within acceptable range. A classic.

This beer has an excellent taste. The palate is somewhat fruity and very flavorful, excellent choice for anyone who likes Oktoberfest beer.

My last oktoberfest of the season, and what a way to end it! Poured a murky amber/orange with a thin off-white head. Great malty oktoberfest aroma. Taste is malt, malt, with some malt on the side. The depth of the malt flavor almost reminds me of a doppelbock or an eisbock. Flavor and aroma are overall much more pronounced in this oktoberfest than in others. Heavier than a lot of other oktoberfests, but a great contribution to the oktoberfest arena from Ayinger. I still think Avery the Kaiser is the best oktoberfest I’ve had, but this is definitely the best "classic" oktoberfest I’ve enjoyed this season.

A good, enjoyable beer. Gets better as you drink it and it warms up. Really brings out the malt. Good stuff.

The first sip of this beer, I really didn’t like it, but it started o grow on me. Not a bad beer, but not an Oktoberfest I will grab again anytime soon.

piscator34 (1996) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 3, 2004
Orange in colour with aromas of malt, noble German hops, and sulfer. Surprisingly hoppy up-front flavor before moving into the caramel/malt territory. It gets downright grainy on the aftertaste. A little uncomplicated, but still pretty solid.

Bottled 500 ml. Orange/Copper color with large rocky head. Earthy Floral aroma subtle. Medium body Full taste Less malty thickness and more hoppy bitterness than Hacker-Pschorr. Multiple tastings.
