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.

Light amber color. Some phenolics in the nose but they were not prevalent in tasting (thank goodness.) Slightly sweet and a bit watery. Not too impressive on the palate, although it did have a smooth character that I appreciated. Overall though, I just wasn’t that impressed.

Smooth. Malty. Good flavors. A little heavy on my stomach. Slight floral hop flavor and aroma. I’d drink this again.

This is the essence of Oktoberfest in a bottle. It poured a beautiful dark gold, with a wonderful malt nose. Smoooooooth, with a nice subtle yeast finish. Ok, its not Celebrator, but it stands on its own merits as perhaps the finest Fest brew i have tried yet.

The real thing. Malty and perilously drinkable.

MY favorite of the Ayinger offerings. Malty and nice. Great color and head.

Nice Aroma, a little much on the malty side though. Great lacing and head. Appearance is dark amber, with some cloudiness. Palate is wonderfully smooth, with a subtle yeast/barley finish. This is definately one of the better beers ;-).

Certainly not Ayinger’s best, but very good for the style.

Decent sized head. Aroma and taste are one in the same....sweet and woody...very typical of the style, but on the upper end of it.
