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.

adnielsen (10145) - 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.

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.

Pint at Pizza Plant. No head just microscopic white ring, orange body. Fruity and satisfying malt mix with caramel, and not too sweet,toasted nutty understated in background.higher than desired carbonation.Medium bodied.

Dogbrick (9820) - 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.

GT2 (9410) - Oceanside, California, USA - OCT 7, 2010
Tap at Paradiso Dupont. Pours a clear, light amber with a fizzy, small creme to yellow head. Little retention. No lace. Aroma of candy corn and toffee. Taste is super malty and toffee froward. Sweet, chewy orange candies and candy corn abound moving to an astringent palate. Meh.

Bottle. Sour barley malt aroma. Medium amber with large tan head. Light molasses and barley malt flavor with moderate hops finish. A much bigger flavor than most beers of this style. Excellent.
