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 light orange color. White fluffy head. Aroma of oranges and malt. Flavor is very broad for the style, lots of malt and hops. refreshing finish, a great beer. Thanks to Heemer for this Tasty Brew.

Perhaps the bottle was from an earlier year, but I found it somewhat flat and bland for an Oktoberfest bier. More bitter than the average Oktoberfest beer.

bottle/ orange with a fat bubbled head. charcoal and caramel aroma taste is bitter in the forefront sweet caramel is there but is hidden by the bitter. leans a bit to far to the bitter side for me with this style.

Nice brew. sweet but not heavy. Amber colo. poured from the bottle with little head. crisp and refreshing. Had a lasting aftertaste that I couldnt place but that was not unpleasent.

Copper color. Sweet pleasant aroma. Not much malt for an Octoberfest. More like a sweet crisp lager. I still love it.

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2008 <b>Rerate</b> Still a damn good Oktoberfest - probably one of the best commercially available ones out there. <i>Original 3.9</i> Had on tap at the Ginger Man in Austin. One of the better Oktoberfests I have had to date. Mellow light orange appearance, tight, but frothy off white head, thick lacing. Slight aroma of sweet bubblegum and caramel. Flavor has a cotton candy sweetness to it that is quite enticing. Backed up by a strong malty nuttiness as well. Lacks that vegetable flavor that some Oktoberfests seem to dwindle down to in the aftertaste, this one stays strong and sweet to the finish. Mouthfeel and thick and creamy. Excellent example of the style.

AlchemistZ (493) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - NOV 10, 2004
Deep gold almost orange in color with a fluffy, white head. A very dry malt aroma with some carmel and malt sugar. A lush blanket of sweet, carmelly, cotton candy-like malt but perfectly balanced with a solid, long bitterness.

Orange-gold, puffy white head. Nose has caramel, a bit toasty. Flavor has loads of caramel, nicely sweet. Less biscuity than most marzens, but in a very good way, very nice malty character. A bit light on the hops, but enjoyably sticky.

My first Oktober Fest that tasted really impressed me. I look for it every year. There may be better but there is much worse. I’ll keep looking. October is my favorite time of year.

Pours a nice copper color. Aroma is where it loses marks. Its just not there. Flavor is nice. A very nice mix of malts then hops. Not sure if this is a real marzen as it lacks the burnt carmel taste but it is still good.
