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.

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 (7369) - 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.

Pours a nice copper with an effervescent white head. Nice gently malty bready nose and taste. You can tell this beer was aged appropriately drinking real nice and smooth, as it should.

radio_nowhere (1058) - Maryland, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Pint bottle into snifter glass, clear copper color with fluffy off-white head. Aroma of warm bread, caramel and faint apple/fruity note. Taste adds notes of grain, toast, honey, dark fruit and balanced earthy hops. Medium-light body, low-moderate carbonation, soft, creamy with clean caramel finish. Very drinkable excellent Oktoberfest.
