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.

Slighty hazy orange/golden hue with a massive creamy off-white head which did settle down some and developed a good lace. Earthy and dusty aroma with additional hints of sourdough bread, aromatic hops, and light spice. Very nice smooth malty taste with just enough hop character to keep from becoming boring. A minor citric zing and light bitterness on finish. Chalky feel in this medium-bodied brew. Above average festbier, again another winner from my favorite German brewery.

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.

This is a nice oktoberfest but i’ve had 5 others this week and this was the most bitter and least sweet, i like a sweeter marzen..anyway, this is medium copper(red too) colour with impress head, adequate lacing..like i said, at tad on the bitter side, but still some good flavours in the beer..an good subtle beer i could see myself drinking allday, but needs to be sweeter, or on draft..

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Tap. Clear light gold pour with a small frothy white head. Sweet nose with some bread. Smooth palate. Taste is lightly toasted bread, light lemon, and a touch of caramel. Really good stuff.

I have been on drinking some fest biers lately, and alot of them are starting to blend in and bore me. This one, however, did not. Amber gold color. Nice toasty malt aroma. Flavor is more toasted malts, nice and sweet with a little nuttiness as well. Finishes with a nice crisp zest. Good stuff.

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.

Braudog (5486) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - APR 19, 2004
Surprisingly light orangish hue for an Ofest, with a super head. Pungent sweet caramel aroma. Alcohol-malt on the tongue, but it mellows well after the first gulp. Man, I want a bratwurst now.

Sampled from from wooden cask at "Ayingers" in Munich. Broad, interresting hoppy nose. Cloudy dark amber, creamy head with lace. Fruity full body, peach notes and enough malt. Nice hop composition - slightly citric. A bit wood taste, probably from the cask. Nice fresh bitterhop aftertaste. Not really a extreme beer in any way, but just plainly good.
