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 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.

Underhook (162) - Lincoln Park, New Jersey, USA - OCT 11, 2008
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 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 14, 2011 Bottle like the picture - 500ML. Pleasantly luminescent, golden body under a dissolving, white head and a sticky lacing of fine, uniform bubbles. Aroma is cereal, fruit blossom, with a hint of dough. Brewers can probably smell the distinct hops. Floral comes out more as it warms. The aroma is of good beer. Taste is mildly salty and carries the aroma well. Palate is gentle, light, lively, classy, creamy, and without finish which is fine. Ayinger represents the Oktober Fest-Marzen style very well. This is suitable for session or fashionable entertainment. Oom Pah Pah!

Btl pours clear golden copper color. Thick fluffy off white head with tiny compact bubbles. Some lacing on glass. Floral hop smell with light sweet just baked bread and biscuit aromas. Tastes of moderately sweet malt, caramel and mild bittering hops. Medium to full body with a creamy smooth texture. Nice dry finish with perfect carbonation. Exceptionally balanced easy drinking lager that has extraordinary flavors and disguises the alcohol content nicely. I could drink this beer all day.

Bottle. This fest beer is pretty light weight. Good golden/amber color with a small thin head that didnt last. No lacing at all on glass. The aroma is delicate, as is the taste and mouth feel. Honestly, I expected more.

This is a good example of why the Germans have a great reputation for making good beer. Aroma is bready, on the toast side. This is much rounder than most beers in the style. Sweet malts, present hops, nice finish... I could easily gulp this like water. It is easy to drink. Even though I find this an unusual Oktoberest I still can see myself drinking it with a slice of pumpkin pie.

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.
