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.

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 (3015) - 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.

3fourths (8228) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 31, 2004
Bottle. Bright and clear golden orange color with a just off-white head. Light nose of fall leaves, grains, whole wheat bread, a little bit of overripe apples and pears. A bit of a bite of hops near the finish, after a decent presentation of semi-sweet apples, wheat, slight vegetables and honey.

On tap at the Crescent Moon Alehouse. Very light amber in color. Thick white head. Fruity, lovely lacing. Milky head. Taste of apples, pears and honey. Fruit flavors make you think of cider, without the astringency.

Pailhead (5061) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - AUG 29, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2009 Bottle: The aroma consists of light caramel, toffee, and earthy/herbal hops. It pours a bright transparent amber with a one-inch head that fades quickly to a minimal ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with caramel and faint toffee. The finish has light-moderate toastinesss and light roastiness. Light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation and slightly sticky mouthfeel.

jayme9874 (756) - Hamburg, New York, USA - AUG 27, 2004
Amberish, thin but lasting head , decent lace. Sweet malty, bready aroma, light caramel and hops. Medium bodied, lovely sweet malt balanced nicely by hop character. Tastes very fresh, I have had this before and the hops have never been this bold (for a Ofest) Excellent for my first of this year.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5077) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 26, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2014 One of my favorite German brewer but not one of my preferred style. +++ Sampled on draft at the Sharp Edge in Pittsburgh this beer poured a medium golden color with a moderate sized white head. The aroma was slightly sweet and malty. The flavor was nice and malty. There was a noticeable hop presence that complimented the malt well without overbalancing the beer. A pleasant draft but not one of my preferred products from Ayinger.

Couldy orange with a fluffy white head. Aroma is floral and malty as the description says. Has a predominant toasted malt taste followed by some hops, and a slight caramel raisin taste with some spice. I love malts and I love this bad boy. I wish I could get this at a decent price.
