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.

Nice golden brown pour with a medium white head that reduces pretty fast. Not much on the nose for me. Some sweet malt. Medium body. Clean and refreshing finish. Really like this beer.

Rich malty aroma full of biscuit. No hops in the aroma. Amber, clear appearance. White head with good retention. The flavor is malt forward with nice bready graininess. The mouthfeel is medium and creamy with a semidry finish. Overall an excellent example of the marzen style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice maltiness to this beer. A bit too sweet for an Oktoberfest, but still good.

Poured a deep copper color with a huge head that stuck around for a long time. Has a sweet and malty aroma that smells like caramel. Delicously complex flavor and very well balanced Marzen. I can taste the floral hops, sweet malts that taste a bit like caramel and vanilla, and some spice, citrus, and woody notes that make this beer one of the best Octoberfest beers I’ve ever had. Wonderful and highly recomended.

Mutualaid (142) - Texas, USA - AUG 20, 2006
Pours a rich copper with tall, persistant off-white head. Nutty aroma. Good malty flavor without being unbalanced or too heavy. Smooth finish. Like an amber ale without the hops; not a complex beer but one well suited for its purpose.

Aroma is combination fruit, honey and buttered toast. Quick open head with light amber color. Flavor hoppy with pine and grapefruit predominant, some honey-fall fruit, maybe peach. Palate is light, with some caramel and tartar. This is a good October beer, saved by the hops from being mediocre.

DragonsHead (140) - Morgantown, West Virginia, USA - OCT 17, 2008
I give a bigger rating to this beer based on it’s style. For an Oktober, it’s unbelievable. For a great beer, it’s ok. There’s a nice malty aroma, as with most oktobers, with a nice crisp taste. Very suprising, for the style. This gave me a greater respect.

Light on the overall aroma, appearance is perfect, first taste is caramel maybe hints of butterscotch and vanilla, great overall body and flavor, easy to drink.

Very very smooth. Extremely easy drinking. Before I knew it bottle was gone. Very malty and sweet, good strait forward marzen. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
