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.

Poured a golden orange color with a large off white head and nice lacing. Sweet malty, slightly fruity aroma. Taste was malty sweet, with some caramel as well. This was not a bad Oktoberfest, my favorite one to date.

On tap, clear orange-brown. Malt, hops, honey in the aroma. Medium body, I taste honey again, full malt backing, very drinkable, slightly roasted flavor as well. Much better than I expected, but I shouldn't be surprised considering it's Ayinger.

On draught at The Ginger Man. Pours amber/copper, some carbonation, medium sized creamy head. Aroma is fruity and includes pear and apple tones. Flavor seems well balanced. Very tasty! Does have slight metallic taste, probably from the keg. A very decent oktoberfest.

mushi (18) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - OCT 11, 2003
500ml bottle. Poured a nice brownish orange, with a decent head. The nose had a hint of yeastiness, with wheat being dominating. Also some hops in the aroma. I liked this one. Tasted full and had a good effect on my palete. Complimented the bratwurst I was having rather well.

WabashMan (1011) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - OCT 10, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2010 A decent light copper color and off white head start off this brew. Nose is very much dominated by the malt, and needs the addition of some other elements to improve. Flavor is also malty, with some dryness that increases in the finish, with a nice crispness. Overall, a nice beer, but far from a great one.

Brown in ciolour with no head and nice lacing, Wheaty nose sweet almost citruicy, the flavor was complex and hard for me to pin down exactally what the flavor was. All I can say is that it is sweet bust till light and slightly hoppy.

Wow, what a beer. 500 ml brown bottle. No freshness date, but who cares? This was a fresh batch, that much is certain. Poured out a slightly golden shade of yellow. Had a fluffy white head for awhile, but slowly faded to a solid lacing along the edges of the glass. Aromas of fresh malts, slight hops aroma as well. Tasted really good. Refreshing, and crisp. Left a sweet aftertaste. One of the best Octoberfest beers I've had. Too bad it set me back $3.15 each. I'd like to afford a case of this stuff. Tasted especially good after packing a truck for moving for 3 hours.

JohnC (3000) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - OCT 2, 2003
Appearance: This Oktoberfest pours a clear golden/amber color with a larger, two fingered white head. Aroma: This puppy goose-steps in with a malty aroma. (you can feel the lederhosen in the air) The flavor is malty and sweet with a clean, crisp finish. This is a very enjoyable Oktoberfest and a nice example of the style

Aroma of stale beer. Taste of malt and bread dough. Some subtle non-discript fruit undertones. Nice and beery if that makes any sense to you, nice for fall.
