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.

Golden peach color. Small head. Nice, strong wheat, malt nose. This is a good marzen, not as malty as some other Oktoberfests, but overall rather good.

JMerritt (1890) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - OCT 2, 2002
Orange in color with an average off-white head with good lacing. Body is sparklingly clear. Aroma is moderately malty and smells of sugary cereal and dough with hints of honey. Initial flavor is moderately sweet and finishes less sweet with medium bitterness. Lively carbonation, with a light and airy finish. I started October with a great Oktoberfest!

KingPinHead (390) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - OCT 1, 2002
Fine peach-gold color with a creamy white head---speckled lace...Aroma quite light and slightly sweet, like some tree fruits...Mellow sweet malt front with slightly roastier undertones in tow...Equally mellow hop top-end and characterisitic mild spiciness in finish are all expertly proportioned, and flavors seem to be released in a one, two, three sequence---an amusing sensation! This has good body compared to most Marzens, and fine mouthfeel which owes (in part) to very restrained carbonation...This is as smooth a beer as one will find in this style...Thoroughly enjoyable...Get it while you can!

A solid caramel, malty brew with hints of citrus, fruit. A bit dull and shallow.

Nuffield (3835) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 11, 2002
Deep color, hazy but not to the extreme. Bold aroma, spicy, hints of yeast. Interesting layers of flavor, malty and sweet, although a moment or two of sickly sweetness. Mild carbonation--it lost its large head rather quickly and, to my palate, was a bit flat very soon in. Still, very good.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 9, 2002
Orange gold color with a very thick creamy head and lots of lace. Sweet and sour malt aroma with slightly bitter hoppy background. Sweet malt flavor with hoppy background and a bitter hoppy finish. This beer is surprisingly light and smooth with a dry finish.

vwsteggie (684) - Paxton, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 8, 2002
Has a cloudy amber color and malty smell. The taste has a crisp bitterness and finishes the same, but sort of empty. It seems to be lacking any body. Overall, not the best beer.

Bottle. A murky amber orange color. The nose has some true spice (cinnamon, ginger) to add to the heavy malt. A good dry, malty, citrus, and spice flavor.
