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.

Pours a clear bronze golden with a large white head. Bottle actually foamed over when I opened it. Good sweet malty aroma with a touch of smoke. Nice full body delivers a good malty sweetness throughout and some graininess. Finishes crisp, lightly bitter and dry. A very nice Oktoberfest.

Amber colored with a moderate and long lasting head. The aroma was malty, a little yeasty and spicy. Fresh and zesty mouthfeel, a lightly toasted malt flavor with a faint hoppy note and touch of orange citrus. The finish was mild and slightly sweet. Ayinger!

Sampled from from wooden cask at "Ayingers" in Munich. Broad, interresting hoppy nose. Cloudy dark amber, creamy head with lace. Fruity full body, peach notes and enough malt. Nice hop composition - slightly citric. A bit wood taste, probably from the cask. Nice fresh bitterhop aftertaste. Not really a extreme beer in any way, but just plainly good.

Bottle. Lots o' malt. Fiarly sweet taste to me. Very nice and light. I don't mean that as a bad thing, it just doesn't drop like a bag of bricks. Nice carbonation. Very good oktoberfest.

goz (359) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 22, 2003
Pours a brilliant clear orange, with a large white head that lasts, lacing nicely. Aroma is all malt - some toast, lots of raw smelling grain, and a tiny bit of sweetness. Flavor is of sweet and raw graininess, maybe a bit of hoppiness in the finish. On the medium side of thin for the body, medium amount of carbonation. Overall it is ok, but seems to be missing something to me.

Pours a brilliant orange color with a thick light tan head with good lacing. Some of the longest legs I've ever seen on a beer. Aroma is subtle sweet malt as is the flavor. Mouthfeel is quite light on the tongue, has a smooth finish and almost no aftertaste. In essesence, the quintessential Oktoberfest beer.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 22, 2003
Frosted honey color with streaming jets of carbonation. Sweet buttery malt aroma. Malty, wort-like backbone with a wheaty flavor and body. Flavor is reminiscent of shredded wheat with honey and even some nuts thrown in. A fresh tasting beer with many elements suggesting a harvest – apropos for an Oktoberfest.

Ringo (963) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - SEP 22, 2003
This is what an Oktoberfest beer should taste like and probably defines the style. Dark and malty, but not too much of either. Carbonation is just right. I think this brewery makes textbook examples of good German beer.

A clear amber body with a white, fully lacing head. The is full of sweet malty goodness. Whole grains, doughy bread, lightly toasted character. Full and smooth in the mouth. Slightly crisp finish, the hops provide light bitterness and a spicy tingle. This was one tasty Marzen and a great beer for one of the first days of fall.
