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.

Its got a hazy yeastiness reminescent of strong wheats and that sets it apart from other fests, though after a while you do feel out a fair round malt.

1 pt 1 oz bottle, pours a light golden color. Aroma is malty, almost has a tomato sauce like smell. Flavor is well balanced, very malty, medium finish. Not quite as good as I was expecting.

Pours bright amber bordering on orange. Crystal clear with a head that quickly dissipates.. Smells- malty with some caramel and drk fruit Tastes-Malty and caramel with some raisin/figs. A little bit of bitterness to balance it all out. MF-Medium body very little carbonation. Overalll-One of the better Oktoberfests I have had. Great flavor and goes down smooth.

Delicious. I’m a huge Marzen fan, so I was looking forward to trying a highly rated, German-brewed one. Victory’s Festbier’s been my go to local beer, but Ayinger’s truly does belong to a higher class. The aroma is far more powerful, full of all of the sweet, toffee and caramel notes that I’d expect. It’s perfectly balanced, smooth and finishes crisp. If I was at Oktoberfest, I imagine I’d have about six too many of these. Superb.

Nice golden lager with a thick white head. Aroma of noble hops - nice crispy flavor - well balanced and very drinkable. Very tasty for the $3.50 I paid at the store - glad I bought two!

This is a top choice for any "Octoberfest" style beer .. Pick this up if you see it! If you like the Sam Adams version this will not disappoint. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle poured into glass mug. golden ruddy orange with little to no head. not surprising for an oktoberfest. light malty aroma. Has a hint of sweetness. Medium-light body and a dry finish. This is a very refreshing and drinkable 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

Poured from 500 ml bottle, cool cap! awesome golden amber color, big fluffy head, some lacing on glass. Sweet flowerey smell, taste is refreshing full bodied and last for awhile. Awesome oktober fest, my favorite by far.
