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 fairly clear copper with a large initial off white head that slowly settles into a nice thin but dense top and leaves great lace. Aroma is rich maltiness, melanoidins, toast. Flavour is rich maltiness/sweetness, melanoidins, bread crusts, mild noble hop like bitterness, fairly clean and a moderately dry finish. Great example of the style!

On draft. Amber color with one finger head. Caramel and grain aroma. Smooth caramel taste. It just goes down so easy.

Nocturne (888) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2014
Tap at St Urho’s Pub, Helsinki. Clear mid-copper shade. Very short head. Aroma is caramel, berries, like many amber coloured beers. Taste has deep caramel tones and a nettle hop sting. The most impressive thing is the superbly robust body. Nothing particularly complex, but it seems to nail this style.

RCx240 (87) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 6, 2014
Pours a clear, coppery amber with a rich and creamy off white head. Aroma of caramel, molasses, pine, wheat, and faint citrus. Taste is sweet caramel, molasses, mild floral notes and finished with a lingering hint of smoke. Full body, foamy and bubbly carbonation. A very nice, easy to drink beer that still manages to retain a lot of depth and character. Fabulous for a style I’m not usually that crazy for.

Vcoggins (53) - Cypress, Texas, USA - OCT 4, 2014
Pours a crystal clear copper amber color with white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma has lots of malts and caramel nutty flavor, a bit of sugary sweetness, slight spiciness. Flavor has lots of sweet malts with some spicy hops, a bit floral. Lighter to medium bodied, carbonation on the higher end. Good example of the style. Better than most American versions of the style I have had.

Tap. Pours a transparent golden with a thin layer of off white head. Aroma and taste of bread malts, some hops, hints of caramel.

Westmeister (1831) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 3, 2014
To celebrate a style I really don’t care for I went and got the #1. Pours slightly hazed copper with big super splashy sticky lace. Smell is sweet caramel, bready, light floral, fruity. Taste is bright fruity caramel, but somewhat delicate. Slight mineral notes. Understandably the best of a style that I mostly forget. Soft palate with light carbonation and medium finish.

jookos (2638) - FINLAND - OCT 3, 2014
Tap@blackdoor. Golden clear. Well malty nose, deep rich with a bit of continental hops. Full, slight sweet malty body, very tasty nice. A really maly full bodied fest beer. Light oily texture, sweet. Super nice lager.

vadie (808) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 29, 2014
Ambré foncer avec un tête moyen beige. L’arôme du malt un peu sucré et un petit peu d’houblon floral. Le goût est du malt sucré avec un peu du sucré et une finale très peu amer.

From bottle. Pours a clear golden yellow with a small white head and lots of sticky lacing. Aroma is light fruits and caramel and malty yeast. Taste is the same, nicely sweet, almost no hops. Medium mouthfeel, gentle carbonation. Delicious.
