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.

poured from a 500 ml bottle to a pint glass. Smell: Has a strong sweat malty smell, but it doesn’t seem to jump out at you. Appearance: A gorgeous bronze tone with a well carbonated body, you can see the bubbles rising to the top of the perfectly formed carbonated head. Taste: One word, Amazing.... sweat caramelized malts in the front of the beer and a slight hoppy note at the end, well balanced. One of the better Octoberfest I’ve had.

500 ml bottle into stein. Clear copper with thick head but no lacing in my ceramic stein. Aromas are heavily buttered biscuit, floral hops, and caramel. Flavors follow with early malt sweetness and late mild bitterness. Light to medium bodied, dry finish, moderate carbonation. My favorite Oktoberfest marzen.

Malt and floral slightly fruity nose. Clear honey gold with a thick lasting foamy off white head. Light and fresh. Very smooth with the slightest hoppy bitterness on the finish. Very well balanced.

HQT Octoberfest. 500 ml. bottle. I guess I’m just a wet blanket but I didn’t think this was an enjoyable beer at all. A little on the thick side, with a bitter aftertaste. Didn’t like the silage smell. I think it was a good light beer, that you could drink all day. I’msure it taste better on tap... and on Germany. I’ll make sure to give it a second chance when I’m there.

On tap at a beer garden. Nice amber glow with medium head. Taste is malt with hops layered in the background. Mild and smooth with good body. Just about perfect for an event where you are going to have several. It made many people smile. Well worth having.

Fantomasus (207) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 18, 2013
Pours a beautiful amber honey with a white to slightly off white head of tightly packed bubbles. It’s quite stunning. Wonderful aroma, like fresh bread: caramel, bread, roasty nuts, light resin, floral hops, some barnyard, some raisin, some soy sauce, some vanilla... quite complex. Taste is very well balanced. Lingering dry bitter finish is nice BUT I detected a strange soapy glue mouthfeel. Almost felt like I had licked to many envelopes... This might be from my serving temperature (much warmer than usual) OR I had some hamburger meat while reviewing. ANYWAY, great beer, highly recommend, would drink again, will buy again.

From a 500-ml bottle. Pours a golden color with a very thick head. Aromas are subtle--faint grass and malt. Flavors are caramel with subdued citrus notes and a very subtle malt bite. A decent, well-rounded beer.

Ayinger Oktober Fest-Märzen has a very thick, off-white head, a clear, bubbly, light copper appearance, and some decent lacing left behind. The aroma is of brown bread, bread crust, sweetness, and bread dough. Taste is of brown bread, bread dough, barley malt, sweetness, some sourness, and a nice, mellow hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and the beer finishes crisp, refreshing, and highly drinkable. This is a very enjoyable beer, and I score it most excellent. RJT
