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.

Probably not my favorite style but its another strong beer from Ayinger. The flavor has a really nice dry finish. I enjoyed it quite a bit. The malts are really excellent and balanced by some nice floral hops.

Pint bottle from Trader Joe's. Very thick head but with minimal lacing. Lighter bodied than was initially expecting.

cexshun (99) - Portage, Indiana, USA - NOV 11, 2009
Pours a dark golden yellow. Crystal clear with a thin, snow white head. Light, fruity aroma. Bread and sweet malt. Flavors of honey and sweet malt. Horehound ending that a rare handful of excellent marzens possess. Lighter on the palate but fuller then most marzen styles. Prickly carbonation. Probably the best marzen I’ve ever had.

Didn't like it at first, but then the hearty malty body comes in and tastes great. Alcohol isn't really noticeable and the bitterness and hops seemed just right. Good, a really cool cap, but pricey.

Ayinger Oktober Fest-Marzen pours an amber-orange, and the aroma is malty and kinda fruity

UPDATED: NOV 21, 2008 Poured 16.9 oz bottle into 20 oz. mug. Nice golden amber color. 1-2 finger white head diminishing to none. Light lacing. Faint malty aroma. Medium body. Lightly sweet flavor that lasts to the finish. Moderate carbonation. Very drinkable. An excellent example of this style.

Pours light orange-nice white foamy head. Floral and clovey spices. Much better in flavor than scent.

I really didn’t like the fruity smell of this beer. It wasn’t bad but it was a little too sweet.

HQT Octoberfest. 500 ml. bottle. I guess I’m just a wet blanket but I didn’t think this was an enjoyable beer at all. A little on the thick side, with a bitter aftertaste. Didn’t like the silage smell. I think it was a good light beer, that you could drink all day. I’msure it taste better on tap... and on Germany. I’ll make sure to give it a second chance when I’m there.
