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.

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2007 Pours an orange copper with fluffy white head that seems to last a bit. Smells of honey oat, sweet hay, and maple leaf malts. Tastes of sweet honey oats, slight maple leaf, and almost an ethereal peat malt taste. Nicely complex and dapper. This is what Oktober Fest is supposed to taste like.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2014 Pours a beautiful golden orange with an off white head. The "picture perfect" beer when it’s sitting in the glass. Decent retention, not much in the way of lacing. Taste of toasty malts, bready, a little mild hoppiness, and a bit of a caramel sweetness as it settles on the palate. Great finish. This is hands down the best Oktoberfest/Marzen style beer out there. Just a perfect example of the style in my opinion. Love it.

Pours amber with white thick airy head that thins. Very good amber ale, with smooth finish.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2014 They make great beer in the town of Aying. Unfortunately, this is not one of them. Pours a clear amber with good foam retention. The aroma is strongly of DMS. Way too much sulfur in both the nose and the flavor. Lots of cooked corn and vegetables in the profile. There are much better examples of this style being brewed in the US. I am surprised that their quality control has let this slide and have the feeling that the batches which did not quite turn out as desired were exported to places where the beer drinkers are more "understanding".

Bottle. Pours a cloudy honey color with off white head. Aroma is malts, bread, toast. Taste is bready, very light sweetness. Very smooth. Nice creamy smooth palate. Best of the style I’ve ever had hands down. Love this brewery.

Pleasant aroma. Slight malt, sugar, bread and nut aroma - but subtle and well blended. Pours deep golden near amber, with little or no lingering head. Taste has a subtle buttered pretzel note to it. Round edges with a feignt floral tone. Nice beer.

Nice beer. I had quite a few of these. Lagers are the second best beer in the world. This one is pretty darned good. Be nice if they were more easily available.

Likerighteous (120) - Pflugerville, Texas, USA - JAN 8, 2006
Very smooth beer here. Nothing huge and demanding. Just pleasure to the nose throat and eyes. A bit dry and tart on the finish, not lingering. Still satisfies after a few glasses. Not cloying.

Pale copper hue. Mostly malty in the nsoe with some metallic scent. Maybe from the cap? Bready. Medium mouthfeel and the smells of breadiness and maltiness are reinforced in the taste. More substance. Prettty enjoyable.
