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.

Big beige head atop clear light copper body. Aroma is unusual (which, in an Oktoberfest, is extraordinary) -- mildly sweet, malty, bready. Taste is medium sweet, malty, caramel, toasty. Clean, light-medium body. Pleasant beer, not at all what you generally find in the run-of-the-mill oktoberfest available in the States.

bhensonb (11494) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 1, 2007
500 ml. bottle. Nice bready aroma accompanied by floral hop. Amber color with a frothy off-white head. Medium bodied with fine, creamy carbonation. Flavors of caramel, bread and flowers/herbs. Very smooth. Slightly caramel sweet. This carries into the finish, but there are floral hop notes to help balance that. Something of floral, herbal tastes at the end of the finish. It is really very tasty.

Bottle. Pours orange with a frothy off-white head that mostly diminishes, some spotty lacing. Aroma is nutty malt (meal, cereal, straw), yeast (dough) and fruit (pear, apricot). Medium sweet malt and yeast flavor, fruity with hops and a medium acidity and bitterness. Medium bodied, dry and slightly spicy palate.

adnielsen (9460) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 31, 2012
Tap @ The Forge Foco. Poured into a goblet, huh? Pours a dark, clear orange appearance with a cream colored head. Sweet fruity, creamy, straw, toffee, a touch boozy, straw aroma. Kind of metallic, somewhat dry. Straw, earthy, grassy, creamy caramel, somewhat floral hoppy, toasty malty flavor. Not sure what is up with the high metallicity but it’s off putting.
