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.

16.9 oz bottle via trade with jzzbassman - Thanks Monte! - Pours amber a little cloudy with a foamy white head. Aroma is malty, caramel, and a bit of floral hops. Flavor is toffee, caramel, a bit of vanilla. Quite creamy on the palate and mouth coating. Seems carbonated just right. Very drinkable.. A very nice beer.

Wonderful cloudy orange pour with a huge foamy firm off white head. Malt and hops, sweet like an Oktoberfest is, but with good hoppy bitterness and an astringent dry mouth. Maybe some herbal or grassiness as well.

Went into this one with high expectations, usually dont’ like malty Oktoberfests, but this one was different. Nice pour of a copper color with a beautiful creamy thick head (maybe nicest I’ve seen in a while). Taste was of malts, caramel and a bit of hops usually not found in this style, Overall an awesome beer and I’d have to say the best of this style I’ve had.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - SEP 27, 2005
Bottle. Nice dark yellow/light orange body with a foamy lasting head. Nose is very sweet and reminds me of the smeel of malt extract-not a bad smell. Taste-spice, very woody, sweet malts, medium citric hops, caramel, honey, straw, and toasty. Very slight biterness on the backend that is very nice. A really, really good beer.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 25, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2010 Pours bronze-orange with a thin foamy off-white head. Notes of thick bready malts, chewy caramel, sweet, robust, complex and quite malty. Medium to full bodied, lightly sweet with lively carbonation. Starts off lightly sweet and finishes on the dry side. Quite nice.

Bottle. Amber body with splashes of ruby throughout. Tall frothy tan head violently bubbles up then eases to a point of rest leaving a really nice lacing on the glass. Nose is malty and bready with light flowery notes and hops. Taste unfortunately has some metallic notes in it (iron? kind of like tasting blood). Very odd and unappealing which is different for an Ayinger beer. Malt chewiness, light hops and caramel. Otherwise this is pretty good. Body is carbonated but smooth. Finishes with more malt and dark bread notes along with light caraeml, fruit and floral hops. Not too bad!

Great Oktoberfish beer. Copperish brown color. A little malt. Mostly grainy and alchohol is low. Has a unique hop signature.
