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.

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.

DSG (11505) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 27, 2008
(10/13/08) Draught at Map Room in Chicago. Clear deep golden color with a small white head. Malty aroma with some toast and caramel notes as well as nutty hints. Sweetish malty flavor with caramel, toasted bread, some light fruitiness and light buttery hints. Medium-bodied. Nothing exciting, but OK.

Dogbrick (11332) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 7, 2003
On draught at the Winking Lizard Tavern in Columbus, OH. This beer is a hazy bright amber color with a medium off-white head and nice lacing. The aroma is a fair amount of malt along with a bit of hops. Medium-bodied with a lot of malt from the get-go. The beer does seem to get a little spicier and hoppier toward the end of the glass. The finish is light and a little hoppy. This is a good seasonal from Ayinger.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2012 Ayinger is one of the few Germans that you can’t get in the 12 oz variety of bottle. The cap is gimmicky and one of the coolest ones I have come across. No sign of freshness date, but I am pretty sure it is fresh. Pours the lighter Oktoberfest style, the festival lager style, with a mix of amber and gold body. Nice 4 finger white head. The malts smell juicy and roasted. The hops are earthy with a hint of spice, a nice scent to this one. The mouthfeel is pretty full, a lot of sweetness, mostly malt, one of the heartier tasting Oktoberbests. The hop bitterness sneaks in slighlty at the end but it is well-balanced. Overall a solid Oktoberfest beer, would like to have it by the 12 oz bottle though rather than the larger bottle. It is a well balanced entry into the field and may be what you want to try first if your pondering on which one to choose. Had it again and I thought it was much hoppier and better, score bumped up.
