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.

this beer looks like an oktoberfest should. golden-orange with a creamy, persistent head. any lacing falls quickly from the side of the glass. subtle bread in the aroma. clean grain, with a dry, and slightly sweet finish. lively mouthfeel, with a metallic tinge. an ideal oktoberfest, the best i’ve had yet.

Reddish coppery hue with light haze and carbonation. Pour is initially lively resulting in a dense rocky and enduring foam. Nose is toasted malt with a slight cookie aroma, mild grain and pepper. A spritzy mouthfeel is light to medium bodied making for a refreshing drink. Tasting shows more of the biscuity toasted malt, a grainy middle, rounding out with a little sourness and brief hints of dryness. I also picked up a few light metallic notes, and should add that the beer seems to find increased depths of fruitiness with food. Probably my favorite Oktoberfest brew this year.

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2012 INCREDIBLE BEER! Malty and floral nose... Flavor was malty but had this slight floral thing going on too... slight hint of fruit also... One of my favorites!

Its got a hazy yeastiness reminescent of strong wheats and that sets it apart from other fests, though after a while you do feel out a fair round malt.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - OCT 29, 2001
Sweetness with a citrusy zest, very full-bodied, beautiful orange hue and a nice slightly hoppy finish -- another real winner from one of Deutschland’s finest!

Excellent Oktoberfest. Great color, malty flavor and good punch. If you like Oktoberfests, you’ll like this.

canary dog (649) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - OCT 20, 2001
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2013 Typical German-lager/malt aroma. Aroma of olives. Very nice light amber color with tight, active bubbles and frothy head. Very full but subdued malt flavor and smoothness, typical of the style. Classy and smooth, and not overwhelmingly malty or sweet. A very well made beer, but not a favorite style of mine.

This is a good German interretation of the style. Medium bodied with a great malty sweetness. Easily the equal of a Paulaner.
