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.

probstblueribbon (3717) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 5, 2015
500 ml bottle from LCBO served cool in a tulip glass. Brilliant deep amber with a full, tight tan head. Nice bready maltiness, melanoidin, a little floral hops, a bit sweet-smelling, almost caramel, clean. Medium body, medium and fine carbonation. Bready and bread crust malt, a little cardboard, light floral hops, borders on a toffee-like flavour, clean fermentation; almost dry with low to moderate bitterness and a pleasant, malty finish. Not bad.

Raistlin (293) - London, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 2, 2015
Pours clear deep amberish golden with a big frothy bubbly offwhite head that slowly dissipates while leaving some thick sticky lacing on the glass while dissipating. Smell is malty and floral with sweet dark bread, caramel, toffee, banana bread, hay, minerals and lemon peal. Taste is sweet, slightly bitter, malty and slightly floral. Mouthfeel is soft, round and medium bodied. Finish is sweet and bitter with sweet bread, caramel, cookie dough, hay, dried flowers, minerals and lemon peal. Highly balanced pleasant maltdriven lager. Full flavoured yet highly quaffable.

This brings me back to Allemagne! pours a clear orange gold with a small white top. Aroma is a soft cereal malt with a light noble hop. Taste is crisp, light cereal malt, so awesome just a great beer. Easy drinking, nice floral noble hop. This is what beer needs to be.

This Marzen pours so crisp & sharp that it’s like it’s in high definition. Toasted malts, drizzled honey, dark bread dough, & herbal tea. Ms Tiki steals a sip & suggests that it kinda tastes like ginger ale minus the ginger & try as I may to erase that image from my mind’s eye I can’t & its vaguely -- but not really but kinda -- true. Love the subtle but intentional finish. Recommended.

½ liter bottle – decants a shimmering deep amber with orange highlights – a 3 finger off white meringue cap lasts and caps the brew to the finish. Aromas of toasted bread, light cara-sweetness, soft cider-like notes, wet hay hop tones ==gorgeous aroma to this lager. Flavor follow aroma; bready-toasty-light herbal-woody hop tones, hint of sweetness that goes instantly dry as the finish begins –dry but malty finish with a tart hop kiss at the end – Fan-F-in’-tastic!! A great fest marzen from Bavaria’s premier brewery. I stocked up.

Bottle plucked an LCBO just as it arrived fashionably late in the last week of November. Pours a nice clear amber with white head. Nose is fruity malt, grain floral hops. Taste hits you with some fruity esters up front and nice grain malt on the finish. Nice even in November.

Marduk (6324) - Reval, ESTONIA - NOV 15, 2015
Tap @Black Door. Clear amber color. Medium size, beige-yellow head, stays. Sweet, very malty, fruity, perfume in aroma. Sweet, caramel, sugary, malty in taste. Long lasting malts in aftertaste. Perhaps bit too sweet for me, but malts are just perfect in this brew.
