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.

Bottle from Trader Joe. Poured a brilliant, crystal-clear copper. Nice pillowy head and good lacing. Smelled sweet malt, caramel and biscuit. Body is lighter than expected and carbonation is higher than expected, but this is a very malty beer nonetheless. It has a faintly astringent/cloyingly sweet aftertaste at first, but I got used to it quickly. Good beer.

Pours light amber colored with huge white cloudy head. Rather light malty aroma with hints of bread and caramel. Flavor is primarily caramel and lightly roasted malts but well balanced so it’s not as sweet as some Oktoberfests. Very smooth, clean finish.

My friend, Hugo, at Spec’s gave me the heads up on this brew....wow, was he right. I like just about everything in this beer. A sweet aroma, with some citrus and honey hints thrown in. Looks very fresh in the glass, great dark orange color, with medium clarity, and plenty of carbonation. A full body, with great, soft malt tones and sweet flavors. Not much prominent hops here. Washes down smoothly. A great way to finish the day.....and begin the evening...

Very nice Oktoberfest beer. I had the opportunity to taste it side by side with Paulaner, Spaten and Weihenstephen fest beers all on tap. This one was my favorite and the one I thought most truly represented the style. Nice amber color, good Munich malt sweetness and a distinctive German charecter.

Pours a brilliant orange color with a thick light tan head with good lacing. Some of the longest legs I've ever seen on a beer. Aroma is subtle sweet malt as is the flavor. Mouthfeel is quite light on the tongue, has a smooth finish and almost no aftertaste. In essesence, the quintessential Oktoberfest beer.

Poured a apricot color, with 3 finger with head, that is pretty frothy but looks to light to hang around too long. Aroma =has a bit of an earthy smell, can detect a little spice in it, but aroma is pretty weak overall. Taste = Wonderful malty backbone, getting a sweet, light peachy flavor in this, and a toasted bready flavor also. This is a really exceptionally smooth, clean beer, feels light on the tounge. Overall, this is an exceptionally good oktoberfest, possibly even my favorite so far.

Bought at Trader Joes, and served in dimpled mug. Feint aroma of sweet rolls and fruit jam. Light copper color, brilliantly clear, thick foamy spongy white head. Easy drink, build flavor as it develops in your mouth. First and foremost, it is smooth, like velvet. Medium body , slightly crisp and dry at the end. Flavor of bread, and mild clover honey. It is mid September, so this Oktoberfest hits the season. Hard to have just one.

Very Interesting oktober fest brew. Finish is slightly dry. Interesting combination of hops for an oktober fest brew. Worth a sample.

Crisp fruity aroma, flavor is citrus and floral hops and hint of spice. Some similarity to a weißbier, but definitely an Oktoberfest
