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 nice clear copper color with off-white head. Caramel malt, floral notes, and some toffee notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a good amount of malt.

500 ml bottle. A dark gold beer with a big, thick creamy head. Malty aroma with hops and caramel. Flavor is slightly sweet with malt, caramel and a little hoppy dry finish. Not bad.

Oh, is this splendid. Let’s start with the scent. Beautiful burnt malts. It follows through in flavor. This is a malt-heavy beer, and it is stunning. Just stunning.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance was a cloudy golden copper colored body with a two finger white foamy head that gently dies leaving a lacing that coats the sides of the glass. The smell had some toasted breadiness and slightly earthy graininess. The taste was sweet and toasty and earthy, slightly earthy malty aftertaste and a dry mild malty finish. On the palate, it sat about a medium, and was semi-sessionable. Carbonation is good for the style and for me (somewhat smooth yet satisfying). Overall, this was a wonderful Oktoberfest style beer, but of course it is, it’s comin’ from where it was originally developed - my motherland.

Tap. Pours clear golden amber color with a large white head. Good lacing. Nose is sweet bread, and caramel. Taste is the same, just a little more hops. Very refreshing.

Malty, sweet, and well carbonated, with hints of warm bread and spices. A wonderfully drinkable session beer!

Bread, biscuits, dominate. This is a malty beer, not too much in the way of hop flavors. Not my favorite style, but for what it is it’s quite good. Excellent session beer for early fall.

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2014 Love the bottle design and the fact that it’s a pint bottle, which I think more beers should be because I have pint glasses that I want to fill up! Pretty biscuity and fairly creamy palate, which is nice. The aroma is definitely better than the actual taste, but they compliment each other nicely. I’ve drank this both out of the bottle and in a glass, and out of the bottle it is actually surprisingly bad!

.5L bottle. Pours a crystal clear dark gold/light amber with a huge billowy head. Aroma is fairly weak caramel malts. Taste is clean, sweet malts with a bit of a buttery, yeasty finish. Hops are extremely subdued and there is no real bitterness to this beer. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel. This makes an outstanding food beer and goes down easy. Not bad for the price.
