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.

This beer came off as more of a fizzy-yellow-beer than as an Oktoberfest in my opinion. While I admit it might have been a bad bottle, since I’ve come to expect more from Ayinger. This beer was over-carbonated, hoppy (for the style), and not an oktoberfest in any way.

From bottle. Part of September Dayton Beer Tasting event. Pours deep golden. Some floral hops with a trace of sweetness. Slightly dry finish with decent complexity. Good effort.

500 ml bottle poured into a tulip glass. Brilliant amber color with foamy white head. Beautiful beer to look at in the glass. Floral notes with some malt characteristics. Butterscotch flavor initially, followed by a bit of peppery spice notes. Finishes with some dry bready malty overtones. Medium bodied, good carbonation Nice example of the style. Pretty smooth and easy to drink, yet spicy and flavorful. This would pair nicely with a grilled sausage or braut on a fall day.

Looks like Hazy light caramel. Smells like caramel and bread. Slightly sweet, medium- light bitter, slightly sour. Tastes like caramel and bread. Best Oktoberfest I’ve had.

Light amber color. Some phenolics in the nose but they were not prevalent in tasting (thank goodness.) Slightly sweet and a bit watery. Not too impressive on the palate, although it did have a smooth character that I appreciated. Overall though, I just wasn’t that impressed.

500 ml bottle. Pours a golden orange, perfect Oktoberfest color with a moderate off-white head. Aroma is Munich malts and German hops. Taste follows the nose. This is a light, easy to drink beer. It’s not the most interesting Oktoberfest I’ve tried, but it is the most well-crafted and probably the best overall. I like it.

Pours an orange amber color with a huge white head that falls off to some nice sticky white lace around the glass. Aroma is bready maltiness, caramel and some spiciness from the hops. Flavor is bready caramel maltiness with some spiciness from the hops in the finish.

Rated while drinking: Pours golden copper with a nice fluffy off-white head. Not much lacing, but the head remains intact as it moves around. Lots of malts on the nose. Caramel almost sweet smelling, followed up by biscuits and warm bread. Near the end you can pick up herbal notes as well. Complex and sweet malts on the tongue. More bread-like character that I noticed in the aroma. Well-blended flavor, but complex on every other sip. Smooth and crisp on the palate. As some other people mentioned, its a tad bit watery, but doesn’t take away from the face value of the beer. Very drinkable. Pretty sure I’ve had this before with my brother. I’ll have to try some more German beers.
