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.

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.

wombat23 (531) - Texas, USA - APR 25, 2016
Shared 16.9 oz. bottle. Pour is deep gold and hazy with a thick white head. Aroma is bready, caramel, and light floral hops. Taste follows nose. Finish is mildly bitter and mildly sweet. Very drinkable.

Aroma: malty and sweet with underlying hops; Appearance: clear amber with medium white head that dissipates slowly; Taste: malty and sweet with some bready, apple-like flavors; Palate; medium body with crisp, long and sweet finish; Overall: pretty good but not my favorite style. Would drink again.

Stuedmaster (345) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 23, 2016
500 ml bottle, pour is amber with a slight head. Aroma of caramel malt, bread, toffee, hard candy, slight citrus. Well balanced, earthy flavor tending toward sweet...rich yet refreshing. Has some fruity, floral, and mineral notes, creamy texture, average carbonation, smooth finish. One of the better versions of this style, similar to a Vienna lager but with more caramel.

Cristobal37 (737) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 2, 2016
Amber color. Caramel and bread. Smooth and really tasty. Probably the best Marzen I’ve had yet. Crisp and refreshing with loads of maltiness and creamy head.

Metalchopz (3036) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 23, 2016
Slightly hazy amber colour with a golden hue. Warm cap, kind of creamy, decent lasting and some good lacing. Bread malt aromas with caramel notes and some sweet fruitiness (dates, mild raisins). Hints of nuttiness. The taste is not as sweet, but still has some fruits, light caramel and hops in the finish. The blend between the hops and malts is quite nice in the aftertaste, which saves the flavours (as a little too mild, but rich with time). Pretty good for the style.

MarkoR (901) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 19, 2016
500 ml bottle from the LCBO. Pours an amber colour with a generous head. Aroma is bread, malt. Taste is same, plus grass and some fruits. Pretty good.

Hands down the best widely available Oktoberfest. It has a typical flavor profile of an Oktoberfest while being more drinkable, more flavorful, and smoother than the Paulaner or the Hacker.

I am going to pass on the mouth feel, aroma, starts with this ends with that nonsense with this one. This is the best marzen I have ever consumed. Spaten and Paulaner are still world class, but this is the best!

Bright amber pour with a massive puffy head. Malty, bready aroma. Bready up front, caramel sweetness, grassy, lighter fruit notes. Medium body. The standard-bearer for Marzen

(bottle) clear, bright amber colour with a small white head; aroma of stewed fruit, sweet cake; creamy palate; balanced flavour with a long, light bitter finish
