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.

clear amber-straw color pours with foamy large and quickly diminishing head, aroma of metal and hay, nice mouthfeel, but somehow tastes flat, wondering if i got a bad bottle, hard to recommend off this tasting

Looks like Hazy light caramel. Smells like caramel and bread. Slightly sweet, medium- light bitter, slightly sour. Tastes like caramel and bread. Best Oktoberfest I’ve had.

Btl pours clear golden copper color. Thick fluffy off white head with tiny compact bubbles. Some lacing on glass. Floral hop smell with light sweet just baked bread and biscuit aromas. Tastes of moderately sweet malt, caramel and mild bittering hops. Medium to full body with a creamy smooth texture. Nice dry finish with perfect carbonation. Exceptionally balanced easy drinking lager that has extraordinary flavors and disguises the alcohol content nicely. I could drink this beer all day.

500 ml bottle poured into a tulip glass. Brilliant amber color with foamy white head. Beautiful beer to look at in the glass. Floral notes with some malt characteristics. Butterscotch flavor initially, followed by a bit of peppery spice notes. Finishes with some dry bready malty overtones. Medium bodied, good carbonation Nice example of the style. Pretty smooth and easy to drink, yet spicy and flavorful. This would pair nicely with a grilled sausage or braut on a fall day.

This beer came off as more of a fizzy-yellow-beer than as an Oktoberfest in my opinion. While I admit it might have been a bad bottle, since I’ve come to expect more from Ayinger. This beer was over-carbonated, hoppy (for the style), and not an oktoberfest in any way.

From bottle. Part of September Dayton Beer Tasting event. Pours deep golden. Some floral hops with a trace of sweetness. Slightly dry finish with decent complexity. Good effort.

Light amber color. Some phenolics in the nose but they were not prevalent in tasting (thank goodness.) Slightly sweet and a bit watery. Not too impressive on the palate, although it did have a smooth character that I appreciated. Overall though, I just wasn’t that impressed.

paiste2002 (186) - Saugus, California, USA - FEB 9, 2009
Pours an orange amber color with a huge white head that falls off to some nice sticky white lace around the glass. Aroma is bready maltiness, caramel and some spiciness from the hops. Flavor is bready caramel maltiness with some spiciness from the hops in the finish.

500 ml bottle. Pours a golden orange, perfect Oktoberfest color with a moderate off-white head. Aroma is Munich malts and German hops. Taste follows the nose. This is a light, easy to drink beer. It’s not the most interesting Oktoberfest I’ve tried, but it is the most well-crafted and probably the best overall. I like it.
