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. Orangish-amber and slightly cloudy with a big off-white head. Aroma is of slightly toasted malts. Flavor is a rich malty, but very smopoth and not heavy - somewhat nutty with a bit of spice. This is easy to drink and I'd be willing to drink a lot of it.

A very smooth and enjoyable beer. Mild malt bread aroma with a good tan head with no noticeable lacing. Flavor was very smooth and slightly silky with a nice dry finish. Nice clean easy drinking beer.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - NOV 12, 2003
A nicely toasted aroma, with a big pour that is a bit of a golden - amber, that has a big building white head. Very smooth, with a nice malty character, not unique by any means, but very easy to drink. All of the ayingers have a bit of that same taste, that bite of spiciness in the finish, this was not any different.

Falconseye8 (542) - Evans, Colorado, USA - NOV 6, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2004 Big white foamy head out of the bottle, a little lacing. Liquid Gold in color. In my opinion, not as good as Capital Fest or Leinenkugel Oktoberfest. My Opinion. Smooth drinkable marzen very tasty. I like it.

BBB63 (6045) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - NOV 2, 2003
Slighty hazy orange/golden hue with a massive creamy off-white head which did settle down some and developed a good lace. Earthy and dusty aroma with additional hints of sourdough bread, aromatic hops, and light spice. Very nice smooth malty taste with just enough hop character to keep from becoming boring. A minor citric zing and light bitterness on finish. Chalky feel in this medium-bodied brew. Above average festbier, again another winner from my favorite German brewery.

Great malty-toasted aroma, with hints of honey and subtle background of hops. Beautiful amber-orange color, with a big, very dense, pure white head. Flavor is great malty and toasted with a very balancing hops backgroung.

Huge head, nice copper color. I thought I was in a bakery when I inhaled (a good thing). Definitely a sweet beer, but I had difficulty identifying the exact flavors. It seemed to leave a little residue in my mouth, but not of an unpleasant taste.

argo0 (11535) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 1, 2003
Big beige head atop clear light copper body. Aroma is unusual (which, in an Oktoberfest, is extraordinary) -- mildly sweet, malty, bready. Taste is medium sweet, malty, caramel, toasty. Clean, light-medium body. Pleasant beer, not at all what you generally find in the run-of-the-mill oktoberfest available in the States.

Aubrey (3432) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - OCT 28, 2003
Bright orange with a lofty, rocky, cavernous head (whipped egg whites). Light mouthfeel up front, finishes soft and creamy; light carbonation ... watery at times. Malts were lightly sweet, bready and slightly chalky. Hops were light, herbal and slightly bitter. Well made, but very mild in many ways.

Nice color with a medium head. Slightly malty nose, inoffensive flavor. Bitter notes on the finish and a somewhat thin body. Good but nothing great.
