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.

Bottle into mug. Clear, clean burnt orange pour with a thick one finger off white head that stays fairly well. Very smooth going down, hints of caramel. For its style, it has more flavor than most. However, in the grand scheme of beer-things, that still doesn’t make up for what it lacks in richness and depth. Again, however, it is also supremely drinkable and does not bore me sip after sip. Maybe most importantly, though, it makes me feel at home and welcomed and generally how I should during the Oktoberfest season.

Lots of white head, great lacing, creamy. Clear golden color. Malty flowery aroma. Slight metallic finish, medium body.

500 ml bottle. Drank on 8/14/06. Very clear copper. 1+" light tan lumpy head. Drops fairly quickly to a ring. No lacing. Aroma - Spicy, some orange citrus, a little sweetness. Fairly strong. Flavor - fairly high up front bitterness. Kind of cold and lagerlike on the tongue. Spicy and sweet orangy flavors come out in the swallow and finish. Fairly dry finish. Palate - pretty light and fairly high carb. Overall - OK. I haven’t had too many O’fests, but this one seems a little overly orangy. I guess other than that it’s alright, but not too exciting.

Appearance is clean an light golden with a thick white foam cap. Aroma is toast and bread crust, with a hint of raisin. Taste is rich bread and caramel, with some raisin and light toast. Mouthfeel is medium with a slight creaminess and moderate carbonation. Finishes with a nice bitterness to balance the rich caramel malt that lingers.

Pours a dark orange with a big white head. Floral and malty aroma. Taste is pretty good. Malty. I drank this out of a lager glass

Bottle at Winking Lizard. Pours a dark gold (almost copper) with a generous white head. The aroma is quite nice with heavy notes of honey and toffee accompanying the floral hops with a mildly sweet background from the malts. The taste is also pleasing, as it is develops a fruity taste to accompany aroma. Medium bodied and finishes dry. I really enjoyed this one.

Probably the best Oktoberfest in the world. Light enough to have a few and such a classic smooth taste ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wow, this what an October Fest should be. Pours deep golden with thick white head. Good malt aroma with minimal hops, great balance, creamy mouth fedel, really good beer.

Draft (or draught..whats the difference?) Beautiful orange color with small white head..I could drink this all day. Lisa, working at the Flying Saucer, makes this more enjoyable.

From a 0.5 L bottle purchased locally. Aroma is rich with malt with a little sweetness and maybe a hint of orange peel and something slightly mango peppery in there in a good way. Deep golden color with a big off-white head, crystal clear. Flavor is bready rich malt with some of that toasty malt from the aroma. Some sweetness but balanced with the slight hint of bitterness. Clean and drinkable. Makes me want some bratwurst.
