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.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 22, 2003
Nice gold-amber color with a thin film of head, spotty lace. Bitter citrus aroma, some malt showing up. Sweet malts and a bit of doughy/yeast in the flavors. Nice palate. Pretty good marzen.

Shag (2647) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - OCT 21, 2003
Orange appearance with a large head. Flavor is malty with a hint of sour citrus flavor. Excellent balance of the sweet and sour flavor with neither one being overbearing. Another nice beer from Ayinger.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - OCT 20, 2003
A smooth and refreshing, malty brew with some hints of citrus and a small measure of hops. Easy to drink, but at the quantities that is consumed for the intended season I would assume it was designed that way. A good example of the style, very nice.

guzzler67 (1536) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - OCT 20, 2003
Generous head over the light copper color. Nose had a bit of a nutty quality along with the malts. Slightly sweet taste of toffee. Smooth, pleasant medium-bodied mouthfeel.

NathanJ (42) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 20, 2003
poured clear amber with a big fluffy tan head that shrinks to a quarter inch of dense medium size bubbles. aroma is malty sweet and slightly fruity, I could smell this one while I was pouring it. malt sweetness and fruit, with a very slight mettalic twinge. dry soft finish that's just slightly sweet. leaves you wanting more.

egajdzis (5456) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2003
Poured a golden orange color with a large off white head and nice lacing. Sweet malty, slightly fruity aroma. Taste was malty sweet, with some caramel as well. This was not a bad Oktoberfest, my favorite one to date.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 18, 2003
On tap, clear orange-brown. Malt, hops, honey in the aroma. Medium body, I taste honey again, full malt backing, very drinkable, slightly roasted flavor as well. Much better than I expected, but I shouldn't be surprised considering it's Ayinger.

carboloader (674) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 12, 2003
On draught at The Ginger Man. Pours amber/copper, some carbonation, medium sized creamy head. Aroma is fruity and includes pear and apple tones. Flavor seems well balanced. Very tasty! Does have slight metallic taste, probably from the keg. A very decent oktoberfest.

mushi (18) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - OCT 11, 2003
500ml bottle. Poured a nice brownish orange, with a decent head. The nose had a hint of yeastiness, with wheat being dominating. Also some hops in the aroma. I liked this one. Tasted full and had a good effect on my palete. Complimented the bratwurst I was having rather well.

WabashMan (1016) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - OCT 10, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2010 A decent light copper color and off white head start off this brew. Nose is very much dominated by the malt, and needs the addition of some other elements to improve. Flavor is also malty, with some dryness that increases in the finish, with a nice crispness. Overall, a nice beer, but far from a great one.
