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.

Tap at Bad Monkey Tavern. Copper gold pour with thick white head. Big bready malts with a nice touch of noble hops. Aroma is really clean with touches of warm bread and noble hops. Really good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a rich dark gold. Two finger head, some lacing. Malty nose with a hint of hop. Taste is crisp and clean, with malty sweetness, followed by a bit of balancing bitterness, with a clean finish. Very very good example of a marzen.

Light aroma: Fruity, bread crust. Apple-ish fruity flavor; sweet, bread crust/biscuit malt; and herbal, spicy hops. A tiny bit of vegetable-like lager yeast in aftertaste.

GTAEgeek (1164) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 1, 2013
0.5 L bottle. Caramel color, with a big, frothy, beige head. The aroma is butterscotch, light floral hops, biscuit dough, lemon zest, and nutmeg. The flavor is doughy sweetness, and a little hop bitterness. Light body, chalky feel, and a little chewy. This is a good, sticky, malty beer.

chinchill (1715) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 1, 2013
2013 but undated 500 ml bottle poured into a snifter. A: pours with a clear, medium amber body; plenty of visible carbonation; very durable near-white head. Fine lacing. Aroma: clean, light smell of bready malts with only a faint touch of hops. T: Rich and bready malts dominante, as they should in this style. Very lightly sweet, although the finish is balanced out by the bitterness Feel: Medium but soft carbonation; medium-light body. About perfect for style. O: Outstanding, although this style lacks the complexity and intensity to achieve a very high rating. As good as any bottled märzen I can remember, and likely the best bottled example of an Oktoberfest you’ll find in the U.S.

Wow, this what an October Fest should be. Pours deep golden with thick white head. Good malt aroma with minimal hops, great balance, creamy mouth fedel, really good beer.

beerbaaron (1152) - Arizona, USA - SEP 29, 2013
Pours a clear medium golden amber with a large frothy white head, mostly lasting with lace. This looks like the quintessential beer. Aroma is lightly sweet and toasty, bready, caramel balanced by floral/earthy hops. Flavor is much the same, with the hops taking a little more of a role. Medium body. Great balance. Soft, just right sweetness and light bitterness and just a little dry on the finish. Very tasty and endlessly drinkable. This is beer. Im not going to ’low rate’ this like most because its not an imperial or barley wine, etc. Its a top notch, well-made, great beer.

Malts, sweet, a little hops. Caramel, bready, toasty. Very balanced. Tastes similar. Remarkably balanced, very smooth. Nice ending, perfect amount of sweetness Great way to start Oktoberfest!!!!!!�
