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.

Bottle. Dark gold color with a dense, creamy head. Laced nicely. Aroma was faintly sweet with a subtle grain presence. Grains far more present in the taste, along with an apple tang that leads nicely into the perfection of the hopping. Remains one of my favorite Oktoberfests.

Bomber to German beer glass my daughter brought me (She went to Germany without me).Light amber with medium white head that laces throughout the drink. VA little banana and then some very delicate aromas--some floral hops, a little spice, cinnamon, Flavor is typically sweet with a nice quick dry bitter finish. Very crisp, yet smooth in the mouth. Very good for the style.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2008 This outstanding Marzen beer pours very clear golden color with a little bit of a coporish hue to it. Has a very fleeting off white head with very little to no lacing. The aroma is very malty... I can’t detect any hops yet in the nose. Flavors of caramel lays lingering on my taste buds. Barely a little spiciness from the hops. After a swish in the glass as it warms a little there are hops in the nose, and alcohol. It’s not too effervecent ( as light and fluffy) because of the full bodiness. The second pour in my glass gave me some flowery hops in my nostrels which quikly fades to big maltiness. Very smooth on the palate, with a soft dryness as described from brewer. Absolutely wonderful brew! Thank the Lord for the hop harvest.

Tap @ Mallaskukko. Reddish orange color, light tan head. Not very strong aroma, but it has soft maltiness. Full malty taste accented by slight dryness and smooth bitterness towards the end. Excellent balance all the way. Very enjoyable, highly recommended.

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.

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.

yackery (161) - California, USA - OCT 5, 2011
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!

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.

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.
