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.

I really enjoyed this beer. It is an excellent style that reminds me of fall and this is one of my favorites. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: SEP 8, 2009 Gorgeous amber-orange pour with a nice fluffy head. Hoppy and nutty. Everyone said I was going to LOVE it. They were wrong. SOMEONE owes me an Aventinus. That was from last year...This year I hated it even more. If that’s possible...It wasn’t balanced...Too much hop, not enough malt. I guess if you have a steinfull at Oktoberfest in a beer drinking contest, it can be chugged and enjoyed...I’m gonna go with Left Hand and Point this time.

Malty, sweet, and well carbonated, with hints of warm bread and spices. A wonderfully drinkable session beer!

Pour from bottle. Average head with larger bubbles subsides quickly to a speckled film. Aroma is subtle bready malt, and maybe a hint of citrus from the hops. The full body and balanced profile makes for a very pleasing flavor and mouthfeel when quaffed.

Very nice. Biscuity and full flavor but with enough bitterness to keep it from being too sweet. Compared to the standard fare marzens that every US brewery feels compelled to make, this one is excellent.

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2014 Love the bottle design and the fact that it’s a pint bottle, which I think more beers should be because I have pint glasses that I want to fill up! Pretty biscuity and fairly creamy palate, which is nice. The aroma is definitely better than the actual taste, but they compliment each other nicely. I’ve drank this both out of the bottle and in a glass, and out of the bottle it is actually surprisingly bad!

Coppery orange color, thin but lingering tan head. Tastes mildly like honey, very good. I liked this one a lot.

This is definitely one of my favorite oktoberfest examples. I could wish for more nose in this beer, but it’s certainly within acceptable range. A classic.

Pours a honey amber with a big fluffly rocky white head. Nice carmelly aroma, subtle hoppiness in the nose. Perfectly balanced in the mouth... exactly what a Maerzen should be. Malty, balanced noble hop bitterness, clean finish. Beautiful beer.

Birra molto equilibrato, bel colore, bella schiuma.profumi di miele di castagno, in bocca dissetante e pulita con un bell’amaro alla fine.
