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.

arminjewell (7271) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 17, 2011
On tap, poured orange with slightly off white head. Aroma had notes of some grass, pine, moving into some biscuit and very slight spice note. Taste was a bit watered down, but had notes of grass, biscuit, some slight caramel and spice, finishing slightly bitter. Needed more maltiness for the style, but wasn’t bad.

Ughsmash (7251) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 6, 2007
Bottled. ’tis the season! Poured a clear, brilliant lighter orange with a nice cap of rocky white head. The aroma had a soft floral dusting over a a toasty caramel base.. some dry leafy accents and faint peppery notes round it out. The flavor stayed the course with a sweet, toasty caramel core with floral notes, light fruit, and dried leaves providing a mild and complimentary bitterness. Light-medium bodied and really fills out over the middle.. sweet toasty finish was very nice. This was a very well-crafted beer!

Pours a clear bronze golden with a large white head. Bottle actually foamed over when I opened it. Good sweet malty aroma with a touch of smoke. Nice full body delivers a good malty sweetness throughout and some graininess. Finishes crisp, lightly bitter and dry. A very nice Oktoberfest.

bb (7133) - Alamo, California, USA - NOV 21, 2003
Bottle. Orangish-amber and slightly cloudy with a big off-white head. Aroma is of slightly toasted malts. Flavor is a rich malty, but very smopoth and not heavy - somewhat nutty with a bit of spice. This is easy to drink and I'd be willing to drink a lot of it.

sebletitje (7126) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 12, 2008
Courtesy of Tony @ OTH. Pours golden, white head. Aroma and taste has this ncie and sweet almost vegetable scent and mouthfeel. there is also plenty of nice malt and sweet sugar.. Another fine offering by Ayinger. They clearly have their own style.

phaleslu (7107) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 7, 2010
500 ml bottle at The Royale on their Tuesday Oktoberfest celebration night. Pours a somewhat cloudy golden color with a thick, foamy eggshell white head. Notes of grains, honey, Munich malts, red apple skins, straw, grass, dust, and nuts. Light-medium bodied, with soft but plentiful carbonation and a straw mouthfeel. This is a very nice Oktoberfest beer, a good traditional example of the style.

marcus (7083) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 27, 2012
Bottle from Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours light amber with a modest beige head and a bready aroma. There is a toasty malt flavor with a dry slightly bitter finish. This is a well-balanced brew that is easy to drink.

KyotoLefty (6964) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 1, 2014
Bottle from Nathaniel’s. Pretty amber-orange, clear, fine thick head. Nutty, malty nose, light caramel, earthy hops, light peach and orange. Sweet fruity, nutty, malty, some raisins. A bit old, perhaps. Tasty, rich, fruity, and malty. Good, but did not move me as I was hoping it would. I really need to try this fresh in Germany on tap.

Pours a clear copper colour with a minimal white head. Aroma of grainy malts and mild hops. Flavour of rye, grainy malts and mild honey. Medium bodied, quite high carbonation. Slick mouthfeel. Malty finish. Very drinkable Märzen brew.
