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.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - OCT 20, 2006
Pours a beautiful copper color w/ a medium semi creamy froth leaving a dusty layer on top. Aroma is balanced malt and hop. Medium nectar w/ ample residual effers. Flavors are fruity w/ a nice malty backbone. Just enough hops to sustain a perfect balance. No annoying grassy hay aromas or flavors. Smooth w/ a crisp finish. Highly recommended.

chicagobears (448) - Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA - OCT 13, 2006
Pours oktoberfest orange with a billowing beige head. Malty carmalish aroma as with most oktoberfest beers. This is one of the best Oktoberfests I have tried. Better balanced than most. Has a spicy flavor and sweet roasted malty tone. Smooth dry finish.

nimbleprop (7202) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 11, 2006
Poured a orange tinted amber from the bottle with a then lacing white head. I didn’t notice any aroma whatsoever, which was disappointing. Initial flavor was pleasing though, slightly roasted malt flavor, carmel and apple flavors. Finish is clean but citrus. Great seasonal beer. If it had any semblence of an aroma it would be a home run.

Bottle. Best traditional Marzen I have had yet. Beaitiful natural copper color. Perfect sweet malty concoction. Very subtle hop addition. Very palatable - very smooth. Perfect finish. A Marzen done as good as it will get. A deinite repeat purchase. My full rec.

BeerandBlues2 (11979) - Escondido, California, USA - OCT 8, 2006
Bottle. Pours orange with a frothy off-white head that mostly diminishes, some spotty lacing. Aroma is nutty malt (meal, cereal, straw), yeast (dough) and fruit (pear, apricot). Medium sweet malt and yeast flavor, fruity with hops and a medium acidity and bitterness. Medium bodied, dry and slightly spicy palate.

The bubbles emerge from the base, then slowly dance gracefully yet timid neck, only to ensure the everlasting foam...."word"-Millla...roasted malt aromas ..dense thick head...seasonally beautiful...."damn she tastes good against the wall ....she likes the style..but only once in a while...."-Funk....."dancing on the neck"......

Pours a slightly hazy golden amber with a decent off-white head. Aroma is bready and fruity with a bit of caramel in there. Palate seems slightly thin. Nice sweetness.
