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.

500 ml bottle at home from notes 2011. Pours a slightly hazy golden amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor were malt forward with doughy bread, caramel, some fruitiness, mild floral character with a dry lightly toasted finish. Solid Oktoberfest.

For the style, this is about as smooth and flavorful as this beer can get. Ayinger’s brew is rich, malty, and sweet. However, there’s a bit of hoppy spice to give this brew a crisp, clean finishing note. As drinkable as it is beautiful, Oktober Fest-Marzen is a fantastic option for bratwurst and rich meats.

Pours a nice clear copper color with off-white head. Caramel malt, floral notes, and some toffee notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a good amount of malt.

500 ml bottle. A dark gold beer with a big, thick creamy head. Malty aroma with hops and caramel. Flavor is slightly sweet with malt, caramel and a little hoppy dry finish. Not bad.

Oh, is this splendid. Let’s start with the scent. Beautiful burnt malts. It follows through in flavor. This is a malt-heavy beer, and it is stunning. Just stunning.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance was a cloudy golden copper colored body with a two finger white foamy head that gently dies leaving a lacing that coats the sides of the glass. The smell had some toasted breadiness and slightly earthy graininess. The taste was sweet and toasty and earthy, slightly earthy malty aftertaste and a dry mild malty finish. On the palate, it sat about a medium, and was semi-sessionable. Carbonation is good for the style and for me (somewhat smooth yet satisfying). Overall, this was a wonderful Oktoberfest style beer, but of course it is, it’s comin’ from where it was originally developed - my motherland.

Tap. Pours clear golden amber color with a large white head. Good lacing. Nose is sweet bread, and caramel. Taste is the same, just a little more hops. Very refreshing.

Malty, sweet, and well carbonated, with hints of warm bread and spices. A wonderfully drinkable session beer!

Bread, biscuits, dominate. This is a malty beer, not too much in the way of hop flavors. Not my favorite style, but for what it is it’s quite good. Excellent session beer for early fall.
