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.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2008 This outstanding Marzen beer pours very clear golden color with a little bit of a coporish hue to it. Has a very fleeting off white head with very little to no lacing. The aroma is very malty... I can’t detect any hops yet in the nose. Flavors of caramel lays lingering on my taste buds. Barely a little spiciness from the hops. After a swish in the glass as it warms a little there are hops in the nose, and alcohol. It’s not too effervecent ( as light and fluffy) because of the full bodiness. The second pour in my glass gave me some flowery hops in my nostrels which quikly fades to big maltiness. Very smooth on the palate, with a soft dryness as described from brewer. Absolutely wonderful brew! Thank the Lord for the hop harvest.

Tap @ Mallaskukko. Reddish orange color, light tan head. Not very strong aroma, but it has soft maltiness. Full malty taste accented by slight dryness and smooth bitterness towards the end. Excellent balance all the way. Very enjoyable, highly recommended.

Well, this is true to its name. It was alright, but wont be spending 3 bucks for one again. Maybe I got a bad one that sat out too long, but it tasted like candy to me, and not in a good way. Too sweet.

Pours a beautiful mahagony color, with a thick, well formed head. Smells of spices and malts. Flavor is malts and maybe cinnamon, with a hint of floral hops. Complex, would definitely buy again.

Fluffy head, dark golden color. Very well balanced. Roast malt and just enough hops and bitterness. Not too sweet.

Very high quality brew here, it’s obvious even on the pour. Thick, copper hue with a huge beautiful looking head. Strong lacing as the brew is consumed. Taste is strongly bready, malty, biscuity -- quality oktoberfest here. Great texture, palate has just a bit of carbonation with a thick, full feel to it. Up there with the best marzens I’ve had. Highly recommended.

copper - caramel - spicy - malty - bready and molassas -- somewhat thin body, but overall, very flavorful and well done.

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!

Pours a golden color with a good sided white head. Leaves some soapy lacing. Sweat malty aroma. Love the mouth feel on this one. Flavors of caramel, spice and a light hop kick on the end. Good carbonation. Excellent beer.

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2014 Pint bottle from Trader Joe’s. Very thick head but with minimal lacing. Lighter bodied than was initially expecting.
