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.

Deep orange and hazy with an off white head. Malty and fruity with a mildly spicy aftertaste. Little aroma to make note of.

Pretty good. Cloudy amber color. Not enough hops to overwhelm the sweetness. Big malty flavor.

New rating: Light in color, crisp and a great example of the style. 10/01: It smelled and looked good, but from there it went downhill. Although I won’t deny it is a quality brew, it just doesn’t have any exceptional qualities.

Right on!! Perfect marzen style. Rich, malty, a touch of roast, full body. My only complaint is that the nose didn’t do this beer much justice. Very thin aroma. The flavor I enjoyed so much that it didn’t matter. Highly recommended, particularly at octoberfest time.

Mmmmm malty sweetness. Smells like an autumn beer should and the hops were not overwhelming. I’d love more.

Nice tall head. I enjoyed this beer, nice sweet and spicy malt with a good bitterness, but I am not coming up with too many other ways to describe it, not sure if that means it just didn’t offer much or I can’t describe it. Still very nice.

The aroma is characterized by nicely sweet malt. There is a big, almost white head over a shockingly golden (not orange) body. The flavor was extremely dull, offering just enough to be considered an Oktober. The palate is dull as well. Overall, this beer was a bitter disappointment. I expected much more from Ayinger.

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2013 Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is light amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, cookie), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, apricot). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Ok but nothing special. Fairly sweet without much to balance. Simple aroma.
