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.

Amber with creamy head. Chocolate, spice, and malt. Refreshing and well constructed, but nothing special

I generally don’t prefers lagers, but this is a fantastic example of marzen. A very light, clear amber color with a small head. Aroma is subtle but with sweet, caramel nose. Light taste that is one of that smoothest beers I’ve ever had.

Very typical marzen-style oktoberfest, quite drinkable but nothing to make it stand out. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

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.

A light aroma and deep amber color raised my hopes for this one. Almost no bubbles and a distinctly nutty flavor made me appreciate these Bay Area summer (autumn) nights. It was just what I needed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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!

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.
