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.

Pour from bottle. Average head with larger bubbles subsides quickly to a speckled film. Aroma is subtle bready malt, and maybe a hint of citrus from the hops. The full body and balanced profile makes for a very pleasing flavor and mouthfeel when quaffed.

bellco33 (502) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - OCT 2, 2015
On tap at Birch Hill Tavern, poured into a tulip: Pours deep amber with a foamy white head. Aroma of caramel, dry leaves, and nuts. Taste is slightly sweet, light floral notes, heavy caramel, and a little hop bitterness on the back end. Not a complete malt bomb like most marzens, but has all of the characteristic flavors, and lots of them. This is as good as it gets for a Marzenbeir, delicious.

A tasty octoberfest. Different from ones I’ve had from the states. Appears as it ought to. Smells good, malty with a little bit of a surprising little saison-ish hint. Tasted similar to the smell. The steeped grain taste really came forward the more I drank. It’s a style you enjoy, and this one is a bit above the rest. Buy it again.
