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.

Svesse (6137) - 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.

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

BBB63 (6037) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - NOV 2, 2003
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.

drowland (6024) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - AUG 13, 2009
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.

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.
