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.

This is a very drinkable Marzen. It pours copper with a nice white head and has a very nice roasted malt flavor to it. I’d highly recommend. It’s probably my favorite of the German Oktoberfest beers I’ve had so far this year.

Pours a crystal clear copper amber color with white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma has lots of malts and caramel nutty flavor, a bit of sugary sweetness, slight spiciness. Flavor has lots of sweet malts with some spicy hops, a bit floral. Lighter to medium bodied, carbonation on the higher end. Good example of the style. Better than most American versions of the style I have had.

,5L bottle. arrived today. Ultimately fresh. nice classic aroma, with toasty malt. crystal clear, beautiful amber hue, tall, tight rocky head (it DID just arrive, after all). slightly sweet, low bitterness, lower than Hofbrau, but nicely balanced. i could drink a ton of these. i wish i were drinking it from a liter stien in the Theresienwiese. Top notch ’Festbier. (i couldn’t help but notice that some recent reviews told of hazy or cloudy beer--you guys got duped into drinking OLD PRODUCT. this stuff’s beautifully clear when fresh. go back to the store you bought it from and complain, then RE-RATE!)

On tap at Flying Saucer-Cordova. Somewhat light pour. The floral notes are quite prominent. I drank this in a session with other Oktoberfests and it offered the most complex flavors and was probably the most well-executed of the beers I had even though I prefer the more classic flavor of Spaten.

Poured a bottle into a pint glass. Very nice amber colored brew with a rich, creamy head that leaves nice lacing all the way down. Aromas were malty, hints of brown sugar and honey, Exceptional Marzen taste. Malty, brown sugar, very nice Marzen flavor. Ranks with the best of the Marzens I’ve had. Very creamy mouthfeel. Kind of like a lighter version of a doppelbock. Barely notice the carbonation. Overall an exceptional beer. One of the best Marzen’s I’ve had. If you see it, don’t pass it by!

dev (50) - Savannah, Missouri, USA - FEB 9, 2003
Cloudy golden orange in color. Crisp white foamy thick head. Sweet malty taste overpowers the hop bitterness, some graininess.Thick full bodied mouthfeel. Sweet aftertaste. Not the best octoberfest and not the worst.Slightly above average.

Copper color. Sweet pleasant aroma. Not much malt for an Octoberfest. More like a sweet crisp lager. I still love it.

Pecan (49) - California, USA - DEC 20, 2009
Pours clear copper with a decent cream head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of malt and yeast with a bit of hops, caramel, and toffee. Taste similar to smell, but with a greater degree of progression. Begins malty and yeasty. Transitions to a sweeter caramel enhanced malty flavor. Finishes with a combination of sweet caramel and hops. Light-medium body with average carbonation. Overall, excellent beer.

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2011 Tap. A light caramel color. Very smooth with a hint of fruit. One of my favorite Oktoberfest beers so far!
