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.

Really the standard by which I compare O’fests. Deep, deep gold color with orange highlights and a white head. Noble hop aroma with plenty of malt and just a slight sulfury note. Flavor is intense malt but with a clean finish and noble hop character. Beautiful balance of rich maltiness without being cloying and without the caramel flavors that so many US brewers insist on putting in their beers. What a great beer.

All Ayinger beers are terrific and this is no exception.

A very smooth and enjoyable beer. Mild malt bread aroma with a good tan head with no noticeable lacing. Flavor was very smooth and slightly silky with a nice dry finish. Nice clean easy drinking beer.

Faint aroma of malts and citrus. Pours an expected amber, with one finger foamy offwhite head. Taste is very malty, with a nice bitter tinge from the hops to balance things out. Touches of caramel sweetness and grass accentuate the finish. Medium body, drinks smoothly with lively carbonation.

Probably not my favorite style but its another strong beer from Ayinger. The flavor has a really nice dry finish. I enjoyed it quite a bit. The malts are really excellent and balanced by some nice floral hops.

Pours a dark golden yellow. Crystal clear with a thin, snow white head. Light, fruity aroma. Bread and sweet malt. Flavors of honey and sweet malt. Horehound ending that a rare handful of excellent marzens possess. Lighter on the palate but fuller then most marzen styles. Prickly carbonation. Probably the best marzen I’ve ever had.

Didn't like it at first, but then the hearty malty body comes in and tastes great. Alcohol isn't really noticeable and the bitterness and hops seemed just right. Good, a really cool cap, but pricey.

Ayinger Oktober Fest-Marzen pours an amber-orange, and the aroma is malty and kinda fruity

UPDATED: NOV 21, 2008 Poured 16.9 oz bottle into 20 oz. mug. Nice golden amber color. 1-2 finger white head diminishing to none. Light lacing. Faint malty aroma. Medium body. Lightly sweet flavor that lasts to the finish. Moderate carbonation. Very drinkable. An excellent example of this style.
