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.

A very nice brew. Somewhat sweet, but not as much as their Maibock. I would gladly pound a few more of these. Plenty of malt. However, it’s a tad fizzy.

Honey-like, medium golden amber color. Head is definitely there and so is the carbonation. Malty aroma, certainly some sweetness and caramel. Flavor is also largely malty (appropriately), with some spiciness, some very apparent caramel tastes, (sticky bun!) and a touch of hops, although these are hardly immediately apparent. Finish is rather long and malty. A bit more heavy-duty of a Fest style than I’m used to, but that’s not a bad thing.

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2005 Clear copper color with a small off white head that leaves some lacing in my glass. Sweet bready, grainy aromas, light grainy, nutty and caramel flavors, finishes clean and dry. Light to medium bodied with a crisp and carbonated mouthfeel, a well done Oktoberfest, I look forward to this every year.

Nice bronze gold color.Fresh malt and hops aroma. Slightly nutty flavor. Lacks toasted flavors which I fell are essential to this style - but still a very good beer.

Hmmmm....I think I like Paulaner better. This just seems to light and watery for me. Nice caramel hint though. Definately not bad, but not one of my first choices.

Nice golden color with a big frothy head that lasts. Rich malty aroma that smells like a beer is supposed to. The taste is slightly hoppy, slightly malty, with a hint of fruitiensess that I normaly am not a big fan of, but works well here. You can taste a little of that 5.8% in the finsih, but its not at all overpowering. Overall a very good beer, I intend to buy it again, and soon.

I never met a Marzen I didn’t like. That said, I had a bottle of this after work. This brew pours a hazy honey color with floaties. The fully lasting large creamy off-white head has excellent lacing. The balanced and pleasant nose hints of dark bread, cereal, herbs, spruce, citrus, earth, pineapple, honey, spices and alcohol. The moderate balanced sweet then bitter flavor is not astoundingly complex, but is very nice. The medium soft dry body is on the edge of creaminess, and finishes moderately alcoholic. I love this style. I love this brew.

Very cloudy light amber color with a huge foamy head. Bottle was sedimented? Light caramel and toffee notes in the aroma. Sweet flavor, but restrained a bit, with nice caramelized flavors and some yeastiness. Smooth and just a little flat. Light alcohol warming in the finish. Bottle was of unknown age, possibly detracting from the flavor.
