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.

Orange/gold, with a sweet bready flavor and a smooth finish. A worthwhile beer. I’d pick it up again.

Pours a medium golden amber, with a large foamy head. The off-white head still persisted during the session. The aroma is upfront, with toasted malts and some slight hoppiness. Taste is also strong and largely relfects the aroma--a mild toasted malt flavor is front and center, with some bready, slightly grassy qualities. Hoppiness imparts a little bitterness but is definitely in the background. Mouthfeel is average. In all, a fine Oktoberfest beer if flavor is high on the list of priorities.

Signalwriter (86) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 9, 2010
Clear golden color right out of the bottle, with a modest head and nose – isn’t there supposed to be a fine German malt aroma? There are overtones of toffee in the medium-bodied beer but these are just as mild; the clean lager taste is quite dry with a bitter aftereffect. Carbonation is high. Doesn’t match its reputation.

Thank you sir may I have another. This is so good, the flavors I get are butterscotch, caramel and bread. It has a very malty, creamy taste that goes down so smooth. I haven’t had many oktoberfest marzen, but of the few I have had this stands on top... fantatic. I really like this one, and I am going to stock up!

17oz bottle from Joe’s. Love the decorative cap. Deep orange/golden color. Very clear and highly carbonated. Nice tan head that dissipated quickly. Sweet caramel malt aroma. Honey and caramel malt on the flavor, with biscuit and toffee. A bit of earthy hops as well. Crisp, clean. Very nice märzen...

Given to me by a friend and served from a bottle. Amber color. I thought it had kind of a sour smell to it, not unlike sour kraut. Small whitish head and tasted slightly sweet. Light and refreshing.

This was a good oktoberfest.... on tap at winking lizard... amber poor with nice creamy head and good lacing. carmel and malt notes with a crisp macantosh finish... Oktoberfest needs to last longer

This brew smells sweet. Very dry on the tongue and in the aftertaste. I liked it.

Over all I found this beer to be extremely plesant in all aspects and quite drinkable. I will say I measure every oktoberfest up against Spaten, and perhaps I shouldn’t but I find Spaten to simply be amazing. Personally I didn’t find it to be something I would want over a Spaten, except on occasion when I needed a break. If you get some you wont be disappointed and might even find yourself enjoying it.

Nice floral hop aroma. Pleasant mouth feel with high carbonation. Malty flavor with a lite honey sweetness. I really enjoy this beer.
