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.

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.

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.

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

Bomber to German beer glass my daughter brought me (She went to Germany without me).Light amber with medium white head that laces throughout the drink. VA little banana and then some very delicate aromas--some floral hops, a little spice, cinnamon, Flavor is typically sweet with a nice quick dry bitter finish. Very crisp, yet smooth in the mouth. Very good for the style.

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.

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.

hoplover (166) - Corpus Christi, Texas, USA - OCT 8, 2008
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.

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.
