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.

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.

Ernest (6311) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 16, 2002
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2013 Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is light amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, cookie), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, apricot). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Ok but nothing special. Fairly sweet without much to balance. Simple aroma.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 16, 2004
Bottle pours light amber, small white milk froth like head, soft carbonation, with spotty lacing.   Malts and grain on the nose, slight caramel.   Very light tasting, malty with a subtle hop note.   Medium body and mouthfeel.   Finishes quickly, dry, with a slightly toasted malt flavor.   A pleasing Oktoberfest, albeit rather simple.

larsga (6260) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 24, 2006
Medium shiny creamy white head; brown hazy body with carbonation. Sweet malty aroma with notes of straw and grass. Strong, earthy malt and straw taste with toffeeish notes and a dry, hoppy background. Powerful, yet light and drinkable. Good! (0.5l on tap.)

500ml bottle. Pours a orangeish hue, with a powerful frothy head that dies down after a few minutes. The taste is smooth and easy; a soft malty sweetness, some bitterness and floral hops, and some spice. A good drink. Easy and tasty.

Bottle. Pours golden orange with an off white head. Sweet toasty malt aroma. The flavor is sweet caramel and bready toast. Pretty good.

DSG (6242) - 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.

Svesse (6233) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 5, 2011
(Draught at Bishop’s Arms Folkungagatan, Stockholm, 21 Oct 2011) Amber colour with frothy, white head. Malty, slightly roasted nose with caramel, toast, crisp-bread and orange peel. Malty taste with notes of dark bread, toast, raisins and a mild, spicy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with rounded mouthfeel. A certain malt sweetness throughout. Well balanced and tasty. Nice one.

Draft at ncbc. Pours a clear dark gold. Loose sudsy white rim. Caramel and wet leaves on the nose. Creamy light body with soft carb. Toast, caramel, and a dark tangy fruitiness on the mid palate, kinda like grilled plums or something. Not that i have grilled a plum, ever. This is clearly the king of the oktoberfest hill, because plenty of others try and fail to get a similar note. Mild toasty finish. It is for sure a harvest beer, begging to be served with slow roast pork.

Light color for the style with a nice retaining head. Aroma and taste of malt and crackers, less sweet and caramelly than others. Hints of roasted malts.
