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.

Orange/gold, with a sweet bready flavor and a smooth finish. A worthwhile beer. I’d pick it up again.

Clear golden color right out of the bottle, with a modest head and nose – isn’t there supposed to be a fine German malt aroma? There are overtones of toffee in the medium-bodied beer but these are just as mild; the clean lager taste is quite dry with a bitter aftereffect. Carbonation is high. Doesn’t match its reputation.

Thank you sir may I have another. This is so good, the flavors I get are butterscotch, caramel and bread. It has a very malty, creamy taste that goes down so smooth. I haven’t had many oktoberfest marzen, but of the few I have had this stands on top... fantatic. I really like this one, and I am going to stock up!

On tap at a beer garden. Nice amber glow with medium head. Taste is malt with hops layered in the background. Mild and smooth with good body. Just about perfect for an event where you are going to have several. It made many people smile. Well worth having.

17oz bottle from Joe’s. Love the decorative cap. Deep orange/golden color. Very clear and highly carbonated. Nice tan head that dissipated quickly. Sweet caramel malt aroma. Honey and caramel malt on the flavor, with biscuit and toffee. A bit of earthy hops as well. Crisp, clean. Very nice märzen...

This was a good oktoberfest.... on tap at winking lizard... amber poor with nice creamy head and good lacing. carmel and malt notes with a crisp macantosh finish... Oktoberfest needs to last longer

Given to me by a friend and served from a bottle. Amber color. I thought it had kind of a sour smell to it, not unlike sour kraut. Small whitish head and tasted slightly sweet. Light and refreshing.

Nice and refreshing - high "drinkability". Think I prefer Spaten and Paulaner marzens by a thin margin.... but I already finished the ones I had saved up before I could rate them here.

This brew smells sweet. Very dry on the tongue and in the aftertaste. I liked it.

Over all I found this beer to be extremely plesant in all aspects and quite drinkable. I will say I measure every oktoberfest up against Spaten, and perhaps I shouldn’t but I find Spaten to simply be amazing. Personally I didn’t find it to be something I would want over a Spaten, except on occasion when I needed a break. If you get some you wont be disappointed and might even find yourself enjoying it.
