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.

One of my favorites, very smooth and drinkable. Malty with slight sweetness, in my opinion the perfect example of the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

An nice Summer beer. Pours a bright golden with a white head. Smells of peaches and pears. Taste is smooth with more peach, wheat and a honey finish. Had in the bottle.

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2015 Pours a hazy copper with little to no retention. Aroma of biscuit and yeast (in a good way). Taste of toast and caramel. Smooth, almost buttery palate... mouth feel is remarkable. The finest I’ve had yet of this style. Off to get another!

Appearance is clean an light golden with a thick white foam cap. Aroma is toast and bread crust, with a hint of raisin. Taste is rich bread and caramel, with some raisin and light toast. Mouthfeel is medium with a slight creaminess and moderate carbonation. Finishes with a nice bitterness to balance the rich caramel malt that lingers.

Great drinkability. I would have no problem. Drinking this by the stein. Pours dark amber with good head and lacing. Light bitter finish. Good malt. Hint of hops. Great barley aroma. Bottle.

500 ml bottle. Strong floral and fruity nose. Very light caramel and malt body. Banana in taste. This is far superior to any American marzen on the market. But most people know that already.

An exceptional Octoberfest beer, the best I’ve ever had. 500ml bottle from BevMo. Subtle yet distinctive flavor where the malt and hops are nicely balanced. A clean finish and low bitterness. Definitely will buy again.

500 ml from greens. From the revised list of most ratings and available in ga. Nice roastiness and baked bread and caramel and candi sugar. Little nutty. Little grassy on the finish. Great beer for the style and time of year.

Excellent. Just the perfect representation of the style as far as i can tell. Amber red, decent head reducing quickly to a film. Appetizing aroma of lightly toasted malt. Fully rounded and lightly malty, mouth filling and very quaffable, slightly spritzy carbonation. Slighty fruity finish.
