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.

Nice beer. I had quite a few of these. Lagers are the second best beer in the world. This one is pretty darned good. Be nice if they were more easily available.

Pale copper hue. Mostly malty in the nsoe with some metallic scent. Maybe from the cap? Bready. Medium mouthfeel and the smells of breadiness and maltiness are reinforced in the taste. More substance. Prettty enjoyable.

Pleasant aroma. Slight malt, sugar, bread and nut aroma - but subtle and well blended. Pours deep golden near amber, with little or no lingering head. Taste has a subtle buttered pretzel note to it. Round edges with a feignt floral tone. Nice beer.

Very smooth beer here. Nothing huge and demanding. Just pleasure to the nose throat and eyes. A bit dry and tart on the finish, not lingering. Still satisfies after a few glasses. Not cloying.

My friend, Hugo, at Spec’s gave me the heads up on this brew....wow, was he right. I like just about everything in this beer. A sweet aroma, with some citrus and honey hints thrown in. Looks very fresh in the glass, great dark orange color, with medium clarity, and plenty of carbonation. A full body, with great, soft malt tones and sweet flavors. Not much prominent hops here. Washes down smoothly. A great way to finish the day.....and begin the evening...

Yes this beer is delicious. BUT I’m not all about it like some folks. Could be the style doesn’t appeal to me like it once did. Sweet malts on the aroma, bright and clean carbonation on the palate. Would be easy to drink this by the litre in an enormous stein.

Bottle from Trader Joe. Poured a brilliant, crystal-clear copper. Nice pillowy head and good lacing. Smelled sweet malt, caramel and biscuit. Body is lighter than expected and carbonation is higher than expected, but this is a very malty beer nonetheless. It has a faintly astringent/cloyingly sweet aftertaste at first, but I got used to it quickly. Good beer.

Pours light amber colored with huge white cloudy head. Rather light malty aroma with hints of bread and caramel. Flavor is primarily caramel and lightly roasted malts but well balanced so it’s not as sweet as some Oktoberfests. Very smooth, clean finish.

Very nice Oktoberfest beer. I had the opportunity to taste it side by side with Paulaner, Spaten and Weihenstephen fest beers all on tap. This one was my favorite and the one I thought most truly represented the style. Nice amber color, good Munich malt sweetness and a distinctive German charecter.
