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.

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.

Very good representation of the style. Chewy; would be much better on tap, as the syrupiness overpowers by the last sip of the bottle. Rating is based primarily on taste rather than drinkability.

Big malt presence is evident in the nose along with more subtle fruity aromas. This translates into a great toasty malt flavor with minimal bitterness, some grape notes and yeastiness in the background. Great amber color with huge frothy off-white head that stuck around for almost half the beer. Perhaps the most impressive aspect of this beer is the full malty palate.

What a great lager. The fresh, live, citrusy flavor is exquisitely judged. And quite the kick on this baby! Terrific brewing.

This brew smells sweet. Very dry on the tongue and in the aftertaste. I liked it.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 29, 2001
Cloudy with a thick head and thick body that appears to stifle the bubbles from rising. Very thick creamy mouthfeel with some nice Marzen maltiness. The citrus twang and yeasty bite was weird and this appeared to be fairly high in ABV. An interesting brew to say the least, with some HefeWeiss qualities. One to try, just not in excess. This brew was a meal in itself.

Nice maltiness to this beer. A bit too sweet for an Oktoberfest, but still good.
