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.

Makes for a great all-day consumption brew for the start of football season, grilling/smoking meats all day, firing up the chiminea, raking leaves, welcoming the return of the best season of the year—autumn. Very chuggable with an ABV that should keep you out of trouble with the wife and awake for the 4th quarter of the 5pm game. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

An exceptional Octoberfest beer, the best I’ve ever had. 500ml bottle from BevMo. Subtle yet distinctive flavor where the malt and hops are nicely balanced. A clean finish and low bitterness. Definitely will buy again.

500 ml from greens. From the revised list of most ratings and available in ga. Nice roastiness and baked bread and caramel and candi sugar. Little nutty. Little grassy on the finish. Great beer for the style and time of year.

Jayb0 (1042) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - OCT 20, 2014
Excellent. Just the perfect representation of the style as far as i can tell. Amber red, decent head reducing quickly to a film. Appetizing aroma of lightly toasted malt. Fully rounded and lightly malty, mouth filling and very quaffable, slightly spritzy carbonation. Slighty fruity finish.

"well balanced between the different malts, and a very light hop profile, only descernable in the finish. an ok style, this one stands out a little. definitely recommended if you like the style."

Boutip (4775) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 16, 2014
Bottle: Poured a golden/amber color lager with a huge white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of clean cereal notes with light grainy notes. Taste is dominated by clean cereal notes with a touch of sweetness and some light grainy notes also noticeable. Body is above average for style with good carbonation. Simple and easy to drink with good balance overall.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2014 They make great beer in the town of Aying. Unfortunately, this is not one of them. Pours a clear amber with good foam retention. The aroma is strongly of DMS. Way too much sulfur in both the nose and the flavor. Lots of cooked corn and vegetables in the profile. There are much better examples of this style being brewed in the US. I am surprised that their quality control has let this slide and have the feeling that the batches which did not quite turn out as desired were exported to places where the beer drinkers are more "understanding".

fiulijn (15000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 14, 2014
Draught at Craft Beer Market, Vancouver
Hazy light amber color with compact head. Mild aroma of cereals and malt. Good body strength, with the expected mellow maltiness, and accents of honey, bread and hay; lowish bitterness.
Simple but clean, and pleasant to drink.

Probably the best Oktoberfest in the world. Light enough to have a few and such a classic smooth taste ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Really good, the flavor and mouthfeel and finish really are harmonious, delicious. Sweet but not overly so at all, very balanced and delicious beer.

andrewturba (1010) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 10, 2014
Pours a fairly clear copper with a large initial off white head that slowly settles into a nice thin but dense top and leaves great lace. Aroma is rich maltiness, melanoidins, toast. Flavour is rich maltiness/sweetness, melanoidins, bread crusts, mild noble hop like bitterness, fairly clean and a moderately dry finish. Great example of the style!
