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.

The aroma is characterized by nicely sweet malt. There is a big, almost white head over a shockingly golden (not orange) body. The flavor was extremely dull, offering just enough to be considered an Oktober. The palate is dull as well. Overall, this beer was a bitter disappointment. I expected much more from Ayinger.

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2013 Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is light amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, cookie), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, apricot). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Ok but nothing special. Fairly sweet without much to balance. Simple aroma.

More malt in the nose than in the taste! It has a dry grassy finish, but is very uninteresting.

A solid caramel, malty brew with hints of citrus, fruit. A bit dull and shallow.

Nuffield (3665) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 11, 2002
Deep color, hazy but not to the extreme. Bold aroma, spicy, hints of yeast. Interesting layers of flavor, malty and sweet, although a moment or two of sickly sweetness. Mild carbonation--it lost its large head rather quickly and, to my palate, was a bit flat very soon in. Still, very good.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 9, 2002
Orange gold color with a very thick creamy head and lots of lace. Sweet and sour malt aroma with slightly bitter hoppy background. Sweet malt flavor with hoppy background and a bitter hoppy finish. This beer is surprisingly light and smooth with a dry finish.

vwsteggie (684) - Paxton, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 8, 2002
Has a cloudy amber color and malty smell. The taste has a crisp bitterness and finishes the same, but sort of empty. It seems to be lacking any body. Overall, not the best beer.

Bottle. A murky amber orange color. The nose has some true spice (cinnamon, ginger) to add to the heavy malt. A good dry, malty, citrus, and spice flavor.
