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.

Dark golden/copper color, big white head. Aroma of malt and bread with hints of caramel and hop. Malty sweet taste with bready and caramel notes, balanced by light hoppy bitterness. I liked this beer.

Bork (452) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Slightly oversweet fest beer with a sturdy maltiness and little in the way of hops. Smooth drinking but a little short on flavor.

spokeydonkey (41) - somerville, New York, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Pours a dark gold/light copper color with a decent white head. Many streams of tiny bubbles hint at a high degree of carbonation. Aroma is malt forward with toasty and bready notes. Some spicy hop notes evident behind that. Taste is nicely malt up front: bread, toast, biscuit with a hint of caramel. Very dry throughout. Finishes up with some spicy hops and a touch of lingering bitterness. Alcohol heat lingers. Overall a very nice octoberfest: malt forward but balanced. Exceptionally drinkable!

EyeAmBaldman (391) - Illinois, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Pours clear golden from a 500ml bottle with a thick white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is sweet on the nose, malty. Taste is yeast, malt, hops, and a tad of caramel sweetness. Has strong carbonation on the tongue with a nice clean finish. Good Oktoberfest beer.

500 ml bottle from Trader Joe's. Deep golden color and good, active white head. Aroma is pretty strong compared to others in the style. Malty and bready, sweet nose. The taste matches the smell for most part. High level of carbonation. Pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Roser (44) - Virginia, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Appearance- big foamy ivory white head that lasted a long time and left pretty decent lacing. Clear, amber, honey gold. Most appealing. Smell- clean, malty, bready, (slightly) spicy. Taste- toasted malts, biscuity, caramel. Very, very pleasant. Mouthfeel- light, smooth. Excellent balance. Overall- very nice. A solid brew. Never used to be a big fan of Marzen/Oktoberfest, but starting to enjoy more and more. Would have again (and again) and definitely recommend. Cheers!

KyotoLefty (7874) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 1, 2014
Bottle from Nathaniel’s. Pretty amber-orange, clear, fine thick head. Nutty, malty nose, light caramel, earthy hops, light peach and orange. Sweet fruity, nutty, malty, some raisins. A bit old, perhaps. Tasty, rich, fruity, and malty. Good, but did not move me as I was hoping it would. I really need to try this fresh in Germany on tap.

Bottle - By far the best Marzen/Octoberfest I have had. Malt forward and bready. Hops take a backseat as usual but even more so in this beer. Clean semi-dry finish. Awesome everyday Fall beer.

Very very smooth. Extremely easy drinking. Before I knew it bottle was gone. Very malty and sweet, good strait forward marzen. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
