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.

Pours a crystal clear amber with a foamy white head. Aroma has a bit of band aid. It may be a bad bottle. Once behind it the aroma was honey sweet. The flavor is syrupy sweet up front with a touch of floral hops and a clean dry finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer brings me back to the time I was travelling on a train from Salzburg to Munich for the 2012 Oktoberfest. On the train I met a few locals and I decided to challenge the Germans to a beer drinking contest. By the time the first German hit the ground drunk I was about 6 liters deep and they were somewhere on their 4th and 5th. The weather was great that day

Poured from bottle into stein. Very nice bronze color with plenty of head. Malty aroma that did not hit you, very soft. Slightly thicker mouth feel. Taste is of malt and biscut. A little bitter on the aftertaste. I would have prefered this in early fall but very enjoyable and drinkable.

Pint bottle from Trader Joe's. Very thick head but with minimal lacing. Lighter bodied than was initially expecting.

Pours clear amber with a voluminous off-white foamy head and impressive carbonation. Nice caramel malty aroma with notes of hay and cereal. Slightly sweet malty flavor with enough hop presence to provide balance. Lively mouthfeel but still smooth and easy to drink. I can picture myself drinking a few ridiculously oversized steins of this.

poured from a 500 ml bottle to a pint glass. Smell: Has a strong sweat malty smell, but it doesn’t seem to jump out at you. Appearance: A gorgeous bronze tone with a well carbonated body, you can see the bubbles rising to the top of the perfectly formed carbonated head. Taste: One word, Amazing.... sweat caramelized malts in the front of the beer and a slight hoppy note at the end, well balanced. One of the better Octoberfest I’ve had.

500 ml bottle into stein. Clear copper with thick head but no lacing in my ceramic stein. Aromas are heavily buttered biscuit, floral hops, and caramel. Flavors follow with early malt sweetness and late mild bitterness. Light to medium bodied, dry finish, moderate carbonation. My favorite Oktoberfest marzen.

Malt and floral slightly fruity nose. Clear honey gold with a thick lasting foamy off white head. Light and fresh. Very smooth with the slightest hoppy bitterness on the finish. Very well balanced.
