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.

The aroma is characterized by nicely sweet malt. There is a big, almost white head over a shockingly golden (not orange) body. The flavor was extremely dull, offering just enough to be considered an Oktober. The palate is dull as well. Overall, this beer was a bitter disappointment. I expected much more from Ayinger.

Slightly sweet, with literally no trace of alcohol. Felt like a deeper beer but not too complexand ended very fresh. I over chilled it just slightly, because the true aromas and flavors really came out after sitting for about 10 minutes. Beautiful carbonation that hit through to the end. I enjoyed this beer, especially the awesome bottle cap.

Pours is amber colored with a thick white head. Aroma is coconut, banana, and pear. The flavors are bread and citrus with a coconut finish. This beer has a medium/heavy body with light carbonation and a creamy mouth feel. This one could stand to be slightly more bitter, but all together very enjoyable.

Pours a clear dark golden with a strong 4 finger head - maybe a too-aggressive pour. Light, malty nose - not too strong an aroma. Malty palate with some hop bitterness to balance. This is a well-balanced beer. A bit of a watery finish compared to other marzens I have tasted. Light carbonation, maybe because of the aggressive pour. Some very subtle caramel notes - this is a nuanced beer. Either that or I just tell myself I like it because everyone else seems to rate it highly.

Dark malt, and a good example of the Oktoberfest style. Honey colored, thin head and lace. Some citrus....

Very typical marzen-style oktoberfest, quite drinkable but nothing to make it stand out. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

Its got a hazy yeastiness reminescent of strong wheats and that sets it apart from other fests, though after a while you do feel out a fair round malt.

Amber with creamy head. Chocolate, spice, and malt. Refreshing and well constructed, but nothing special

I generally don’t prefers lagers, but this is a fantastic example of marzen. A very light, clear amber color with a small head. Aroma is subtle but with sweet, caramel nose. Light taste that is one of that smoothest beers I’ve ever had.

1 pt 1 oz bottle, pours a light golden color. Aroma is malty, almost has a tomato sauce like smell. Flavor is well balanced, very malty, medium finish. Not quite as good as I was expecting.
