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.

From a German beer pub a while ago, not many notes, sorry. Bottled. Aroma: Caramel, hops, hay, malt. Appearance: I think I am reading "darker color with amber/some gold." Taste: Hops and malt but there is good balance with some underlying honey. Palate: Easy to drink but quite flavorful. Nice stuff.

Clean, delicate malt aroma. No diacetyl or hops in the mix. Medium golden color, crystal clear, though minimal head and poor retention. Flavor is similar to the aroma - delicate maltiness, some toasty notes, no hops or diacetyl. Carbonation is a touch high, but not so much as to make it unenjoyable. Overall, very tasty brew, well made and enjoyable.

Poured into a tulip. Huge head...a good 1.5". Smells very sweet with honey and citrus. Maybe even some butterscotch in there. Perfect golden color. Very well balanced....a little sweet and a little bitter. Strong copper note...like I was sucking on a penny...but not in an overly bad way.

Aroma is caramel and aromatic malt along with a little banana bread, very good aroma for a lager. Taste is a restrained smooth bitterness with a touch of caramel sweet malts and the delicious oktoberfest yeast flavor you’d expect. This is a really good oktoberfest.

RedCloud (129) - Rhode Island, USA - AUG 31, 2007
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 a clear, coppery amber with a rich and creamy off white head. Aroma of caramel, molasses, pine, wheat, and faint citrus. Taste is sweet caramel, molasses, mild floral notes and finished with a lingering hint of smoke. Full body, foamy and bubbly carbonation. A very nice, easy to drink beer that still manages to retain a lot of depth and character. Fabulous for a style I’m not usually that crazy for.

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

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.
