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.

Ayinger Octo pours a beautifully rich golden hue. Doughy aroma filled with delightful caramel and grain notes. Sweet malt upfront with a pretty thick mouthfeel ending with a big rich finish. A great Marzen!

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2013 From bottle 9/5/13. Clear amber color. Aroma is dark caramel malt and sweet grapes. Taste is biscuit malt, caramel, grape juice, and a hint of grassy hop bitterness. Finishes with a sweet malty aftertaste. Had again, on draught at Second Annual Humbug Lager Fest at Occidental Brewing 12/14/13. Still a favorite Oktoberfest beer.

Tortman18 (182) - Batavia, Illinois, USA - SEP 5, 2013
Pours a clear copper with a finger of pure white head that dissipates to a thin cap. Decent amount of lacing. Nose is very malty with some caramel and raisin. A slight graininess is also present. Mouth is very much the same. A lot of malt and caramel. Slightly bitter but very good.

McGarnigle (543) - Rochester, New York, USA - SEP 1, 2013
500 ml bottle from Trader Joe’s, and give them credit that this tastes very fresh. Pumpkin orange color, big head, toasty on the nose and creamy on the tongue. Flavor is slightly toasty and even fruity. A malt bomb, maybe equal parts Vienna and Munich. Hops are just there to dry out the finish. The King of this style.

BoostIPA (1181) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Pours a clear light amber with a white head that has good retention. Aromas of soft caramel, some dark fruit. Taste is semi-sweet, with just a touch of bitter. Finishes pretty quick with a touch of bready malts. Decent.

Rich malty aroma full of biscuit. No hops in the aroma. Amber, clear appearance. White head with good retention. The flavor is malt forward with nice bready graininess. The mouthfeel is medium and creamy with a semidry finish. Overall an excellent example of the marzen style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The aroma combines a floral scent with a doughy mixture. It is a darker orange color with a medium bodied head. It has a sweat, floral taste with other hops. Excellent.
