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.

Dark honey brown, good cloudy head. Aroma is crisp, lemon and berries. Malty with grassy hops. Pleasant mouthfeel. Really good beer for celebration of Oktoberfest.(5/4/7/4/14 3.4)
Re-rated, draught Copper brown, small steady white head, lots of lace. Floral hoppy nose. Dry, chalky, hoppy flavor with typical märzen notes. Dry long aftertaste. One of the best of this style. (6/4/7/4/14 3.5)

mcberko (14396) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 15, 2010
500mL bottle, pours golden amber with a white head. Aroma of grains, sweet malt and some floral hops. Flavour is pretty much the same - solid.

bhensonb (14080) - 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.

Ratman197 (13272) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 17, 2006
500ml bottle poured a clearorange copper with a lasting off white head. Aromas of biscuity malt, carmel and a hint of n9oble hops in the background.Palate was medium to full bodied. Flavors of toasted malt, carmel and just a hint of hops with a smooth dry lingering malty finish. This is one MALTY mother of a beer!

argo0 (13233) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 1, 2003
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.

bu11zeye (12717) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - NOV 25, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2007 (Bottle) Pours an orangish-amber with a thick foamy head. Okay Oktoberfest brew, expected much more from an Ayinger brew.

on tap-pours a thin white head and gold color. Aroma is light/medium malt-honey, faint spice hops. Taste is light/medium malt-honey, secondary earthy/spice-hops, some bite/copper. Hops is the after taste.
