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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2015 Pours a hazy copper with little to no retention. Aroma of biscuit and yeast (in a good way). Taste of toast and caramel. Smooth, almost buttery palate... mouth feel is remarkable. The finest I’ve had yet of this style. Off to get another!

Great orange/yellow color. Nose sweet malt. Flavors citrus/bitter hop character/light banana.
