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.

Bottle. Poured a nice copper color with a thick head. Aroma of sweet malts and a slight citrus note. Flavor was rather "crisp" and "spicy?" witha back bone of sweet malts. A rather dry mouthfeel, I dont know why but this Octoberfest didn’t move me the way Hacker-Pschorr did.

[bottle] Pours a reddish amber color.. with a tall head that provides some excellent lacing on the glass. Flavors are earthy, spicy and quite complex. This is an excellent Octoberfest brew.

Poured a deep copper color with a huge head that stuck around for a long time. Has a sweet and malty aroma that smells like caramel. Delicously complex flavor and very well balanced Marzen. I can taste the floral hops, sweet malts that taste a bit like caramel and vanilla, and some spice, citrus, and woody notes that make this beer one of the best Octoberfest beers I’ve ever had. Wonderful and highly recomended.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 5, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2009 My favorite oktoberfest of all time. Very rich and malty. On tap it is absolutely spectacular, but it loses some of its freshness when bottled.

This is a nice oktoberfest but i’ve had 5 others this week and this was the most bitter and least sweet, i like a sweeter marzen..anyway, this is medium copper(red too) colour with impress head, adequate lacing..like i said, at tad on the bitter side, but still some good flavours in the beer..an good subtle beer i could see myself drinking allday, but needs to be sweeter, or on draft..

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.

WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2005
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.
