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.

Poured amber in color with a creamy, off-white head that settle to a thin cover and left light lacing. The aroma was of caramel, spices, and a light roast. The flavor found chocolate and spices. Light body with a malty aftertaste.

Big malty aroma, hint of banana on the nose. Nice golden amber, with a head that peters out after a couple of sips. Medium bodied, a slight touch of alcohol, texture is sticky on the tongue, and the perfect carbonation adds a soft coating to the mouth. Big on malt, slight bitterness, finish is clean on the dry end. Very easy to drink, yet extremely enjoyable.

sweet nose that is not too strong. light brown pour with a nice foamy off white head. Taste of caramel and i agree with the taste of sweet hay or straw. lingers nicely on the palate. very smooth mouth feel.

Slightly ruby redish color, very good carbonation. Very malty, and lightly sweet aroma. Dry, mildly bready flavor, good mild bitterness. I agree with the herbal notes others have mentioned as well.

Golden tan color, thin head. Smell is fresh, fruity, a little nutty, oily, clean fruit and hops. Taste is spicy, pumpkin, a little sweet, crisp, refreshing, savory in a vegetabley way. Long sparkling finish. Excellent for any occasion or any reason.

What a great lager. The fresh, live, citrusy flavor is exquisitely judged. And quite the kick on this baby! Terrific brewing.

on tap. Great tasting beer for the month of October. Wonderful, though I liked the Paulaner better.

A classic done right, I will enjoy this very good German beer a couple times a year from now on, makes Oktoberfest wannabes taste different

500 mL bottle. Thought I loved Sam’s Octoberfest, but it doesn’t compare as far as flavor profile. The depth of flavors in this Marzen is incredible. I’m ready to go to Germany now for the real deal. Can’t even describe in words. Wish it was easier to find around here. I had to order it through my bar and make it the beer of the month, but they ran out after I got my first and only case. Will start earlier next year.
