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 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.

Westmeister (1953) - 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.

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 (908) - 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.

Brentv (450) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 29, 2014
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.

Huhzubendah (2783) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Radiant orange body with a small white cap. Aromas of lager yeast, subtle spice, fruity malt. Smells true to style. Clean and easy drinking. A good Oktoberfest bier is a thing of beauty. It’s that time of year. A solid German brew.

Pours clear amber, beautiful two finger head that lasts. Aroma is fruit (plum?) and malt sweetness. Taste is great example of marzen lager. Love it.

Purchased from Leary’s, the Amesbury location, earlier today. $3.75 for the 500 mL bottle. To long-stemmed white wine glass it pours a clear carrot orange with which a bubbly, off-white head two fingers in length stood. Aromas of Munich malt, cherry tomatoes, noble hops, spent grain, sweat, and celery leaves. Tastes the same with the addition of minerals, young oak, German yeast, and papaya-flavored seltzer water. Had experienced a metallic aftertaste by swallow. I’m not in love with the style, but I definitely could drink this again.
