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.

Light amber body with healthy rising carbonation and a pretty white head, citrus, freshly baked bread and mild spice in the nose. Quite hoppy for the style, with a distinct moderate bitterness throughout; bready flavors linger. RERATE: Not so assertively hoppy as it warms, with floral notes replacing the bitterness.

Nice clear orange and amber beer with a big tan head. Malt and spice along with a hint of lemon and citrus hop aroma. It’s got a somewhat wheaty and roasted taste and is also tangy and dry.

Pours a reddish golden color. Aroma is somewhat malty, with a little bit of a citric smell. Flavor starts off with a burnt maltiness to it. Finishes with an almost chocolate like flavor. Pretty smooth and appealing.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2009 (Draught) Light amber color with a medium, white and lacy head. Slightly caramely, malty and aromatic-flowery-grassy-hoppy nose with buttery maltiness Softly, but nicely hoppy, berryish, somewhat salty-nutty and caramely flavor. Medium-bodied palate with quite low and smooth carbonation. A nice, aromatic, buttery, berry-fruity märzen.

Bottle. Dark gold color with a dense, creamy head. Laced nicely. Aroma was faintly sweet with a subtle grain presence. Grains far more present in the taste, along with an apple tang that leads nicely into the perfection of the hopping. Remains one of my favorite Oktoberfests.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - SEP 14, 2004
Deeper golden color, off white head. Doughy malt, slightly earthy with a bit of toastiness. Medium bodied and fairly dry. It was ok but not all that great. I expected a bit more from Ayinger.

humulus (339) - Salem, Missouri, USA - SEP 12, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2004 Pours golden-bronze like autumnal leaves and with an aroma I can only liken to a blustery september day. The malts are nutty and rich. The head is pillowy soft and evokes a deep pining for those cool and comfortable naps under turning trees and a weakening season. The hops are spicy and tart enough to match the bitter and all orchastrate into a vibrant offering. The tempo and rythmn of a melodic brew designed and derived for remberence, reflection and relaxation. I will not resist.

Frank (3270) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 4, 2004
Really a nice Oktober fest. Brilliant amber color, poured without much head at Resi’s in Chicago. A nice floral character, maybe a bit of toastiness in the body and somewhat dry--which is a good thing. Drinks really smooth enough that the extra point-eight percent alcohol catches up with you. A delight.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 3, 2004
Clear golden brown color with foamy white head. Bready malt aroma with some toasted notes and the slightest hint of honey. Toasty, bready malt flavors, underlying earthy fruit notes. Light sweetness and a well balanced finish. Good example of the style.
