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.

Awesome Oktoberfest beer. A little sweet, a little hoppy, and plenty of grain dominates the palate. White head on top of a golden body, great beer.

Pours a clear copper with a finger of pure white head that dissipates to a thin cap. Decent amount of lacing. Nose is very malty with some caramel and raisin. A slight graininess is also present. Mouth is very much the same. A lot of malt and caramel. Slightly bitter but very good.

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2003 Malty and sweet. Not much to notice as far as aroma goes. Alcohol is barely noticeable. Very drinkable.

Bottle. Poured a nice copper color with a thick head. Aroma of sweet malts and a slight citrus note. Flavor was rather "crisp" and "spicy?" witha back bone of sweet malts. A rather dry mouthfeel, I dont know why but this Octoberfest didn’t move me the way Hacker-Pschorr did.

Pours amber with little head. Smell is slightly yeasty, some sweet notes are present. Taste is quite pleasant. One of more enjoyable beers in my opinion. Light, almost no body, with a sweet afterntaste that is not long lasting. A very good kirtabier!

blazingspiral (170) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - SEP 25, 2010
Bottle from whole foods. Pours clear amber with two-finger head that quickly subsides to a thin skiff of bubbles. Sweet aroma of caramel, grains, and some mild floral notes. Malty flavor with the same kind of sweetness promised by the aroma, and a slight hops tingle. Clean and well balanced, lively texture on the tongue, lingering finish that reveals more grassy hops flavor. A pleasant beer.

DeliveryDriver (170) - Illinois, USA - JAN 10, 2013
Pours a beautiful red color with a nice amount of carbonation. Big, white head, but I did pour it fast. Caramel for the most part on the nose, but a bit of nuttiness to it. Not overly sweet, but the sweetness takes over because of a lack of anything else on the tongue. Light body, and easy drinking. If you don’t eat or drink anything, you will taste this beer for a long time. Don’t think as much of the style as others personally, but Ayinger does a damn good job on this beer.

basewars (169) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 9, 2008
Amber with a nice two finger head. Aroma is caramely. Flavor is malty with a hint of hops. Nicely balanced beer. One of the best Octoberfests I’ve had.

Bottle. Dark gold color with a dense, creamy head. Laced nicely. Aroma was faintly sweet with a subtle grain presence. Grains far more present in the taste, along with an apple tang that leads nicely into the perfection of the hopping. Remains one of my favorite Oktoberfests.
