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.

On tap at the Crescent Moon Alehouse. Very light amber in color. Thick white head. Fruity, lovely lacing. Milky head. Taste of apples, pears and honey. Fruit flavors make you think of cider, without the astringency.

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2009 Bottle: The aroma consists of light caramel, toffee, and earthy/herbal hops. It pours a bright transparent amber with a one-inch head that fades quickly to a minimal ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with caramel and faint toffee. The finish has light-moderate toastinesss and light roastiness. Light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation and slightly sticky mouthfeel.

Amberish, thin but lasting head , decent lace. Sweet malty, bready aroma, light caramel and hops. Medium bodied, lovely sweet malt balanced nicely by hop character. Tastes very fresh, I have had this before and the hops have never been this bold (for a Ofest) Excellent for my first of this year.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6717) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 26, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2014 One of my favorite German brewer but not one of my preferred style. +++ Sampled on draft at the Sharp Edge in Pittsburgh this beer poured a medium golden color with a moderate sized white head. The aroma was slightly sweet and malty. The flavor was nice and malty. There was a noticeable hop presence that complimented the malt well without overbalancing the beer. A pleasant draft but not one of my preferred products from Ayinger.

Couldy orange with a fluffy white head. Aroma is floral and malty as the description says. Has a predominant toasted malt taste followed by some hops, and a slight caramel raisin taste with some spice. I love malts and I love this bad boy. I wish I could get this at a decent price.

Bottle pours light amber, small white milk froth like head, soft carbonation, with spotty lacing.   Malts and grain on the nose, slight caramel.   Very light tasting, malty with a subtle hop note.   Medium body and mouthfeel.   Finishes quickly, dry, with a slightly toasted malt flavor.   A pleasing Oktoberfest, albeit rather simple.

Hazy light orange in color with a small but lasting head. Aroma is nutty and very malty. The flavor is very malty with some balancing bitterness. Very easy to drink: luckily my two half liters were on a Friday night.

A very malty Oktoberfest beer and very flavorful. Not much in terms of hoppiness in this brew, since the nutty caramel character of this brew overshadows everything else here. I like this brew, but make sure you’re a malt fan if you try it.

Felt like a fest beer and this is all I could find in July. Light brown color with a surprisingly thick and lasting eggshell white head. Very malty aroma. Taste is all malt of course, but not too sweet. Some caramel and floral hops as well. Creamy mouthfeel and a pleasant finish, not too sticky like many marzens. Dangerously quaffable for an oktoberfest... I’ll be drinkin this again in a few months.
