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.

Thick White head on top of a golden body. Smells yeasty, of grape juice, spicy, and floral. Very smooth and mellow flavors, hints of caramel, and hops with a slightly fruity finish. I think I like the Paulaner Maerzen better. Very good beer, great for long bouts of drinking, due to the smoothness and not too aggressive flavors.

Celebrated with this one while watching the Red Sox World Series parade. A fine beer for a great moment and a great team. Pours a beautiful copper/golden color with a thick foamy off-white (almost tan) head. Absolutely gorgeous. Beautiful malty notes and a sweet malty flavor that is exquisite on your palate. Loved it. If you look at my other reviews of Ayinger beers, you’ll see that I’m a huge fan of their brews. This one is no exception. Highly recommended.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2006 Very solid and enjoyable. Malty presence that screams "German beer". Mildly sweet and spicey.

Certainly not Ayinger’s best, but very good for the style.

UPDATED: NOV 23, 2005 Wow, what an amazing beer! Poured from bottle into shaker glass. Not paying attention, I acidentally poured the yeasty sediment in which clouded it a bit. Otherwies it was a pale copper color. The slightly rocky off-white head slowly diminished. Medium body. Alcohol was well-hidden. My overall impression was malty, maybe a little nutty. YUM!

Great beer for fall. Light Amber color with light aroma. Full bodied with a sweet flavor spiced just enough. Finish remains sweet and very clean.

Pours Amber color with off white head. Aroma has a bit of malt sweetness. Taste is a nice balance of sweetness, and malt with a slighlty bitter finish. One of the best Oktober fest beers for sure.

.5L bottle. Pours a crystal clear dark gold/light amber with a huge billowy head. Aroma is fairly weak caramel malts. Taste is clean, sweet malts with a bit of a buttery, yeasty finish. Hops are extremely subdued and there is no real bitterness to this beer. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel. This makes an outstanding food beer and goes down easy. Not bad for the price.

The flavor brings strong carmel and some hints of toffee. As the beer warms you get molasses that seems to carry right through to the end. Some grassy notes too. When it comes to the aroma some good malt,carmel and a little grassy notes Pours a copper color a quick disappearing white head. It has a nice amount of carbonation The beer finishes with solid grassy hops and spiciness. But there is a sweetness from some molasses that tends to linger on the palate. It’s a good version of the style with there own twist. I could never do a full session of these but still enjoyable. But another good beer from these guys.
