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: mostly malt in the nose. Dark gold to amber appearance with a nice white head. Oddly creamy mouthfeel. Didn't look so carbonated, but it did feel like it. Nice malty flavor. I like this one.

Nice beer. I had quite a few of these. Lagers are the second best beer in the world. This one is pretty darned good. Be nice if they were more easily available.

Clear sparkling amber with a very nice white frothy head. The aroma is very German, malt with hints of floral hops. Flavor is quite nice, balanced maltiness with a dose of sweetness. The body is medium and smooth. Very nice marzen.

Wow, this is one complex Oktoberfest. Pours yellow-orange, with a medium white head. Bready caramel aroma, with alcohol notes evident. Rich and luscious flavor: bready caramel with strong mustiness, light fruitiness that becomes sweet and notable as the beer warms, and alcohol notes. Almost reminiscent of an amber ale. Nicely carbonated. A delicious example of the style.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2007 (Bottle) Pours an orangish-amber with a thick foamy head. Okay Oktoberfest brew, expected much more from an Ayinger brew.

bb (7644) - Alamo, California, USA - NOV 21, 2003
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.

ZepolK (102) - South Side Montebello, California, USA - NOV 14, 2003
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 (6474) - 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.
