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.

(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.

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..

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.

The beer pours an orange-amber color with a large white head. The aroma is heavy on the nutty and toffee malts with a little bit of grass thrown in from the hops. The flavor is is full of toffee, caramel and biscuit malts. There are some nice floral hop notes in the flavor as well which really add to the flavor profile. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very easy to drink and one of the best German-brewed märzens out there.

Aroma has grainy and slightly sweet malt, some grassy hops and hints of butter. Flavour has some sweetish malt, grassy hops and hints of butter. Refreshing, faithful to the style and good!

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.

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.

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2008 <b>Rerate</b> Still a damn good Oktoberfest - probably one of the best commercially available ones out there. <i>Original 3.9</i> Had on tap at the Ginger Man in Austin. One of the better Oktoberfests I have had to date. Mellow light orange appearance, tight, but frothy off white head, thick lacing. Slight aroma of sweet bubblegum and caramel. Flavor has a cotton candy sweetness to it that is quite enticing. Backed up by a strong malty nuttiness as well. Lacks that vegetable flavor that some Oktoberfests seem to dwindle down to in the aftertaste, this one stays strong and sweet to the finish. Mouthfeel and thick and creamy. Excellent example of the style.

(Draught) clear deep amber, ring of fine white bubbles. Node of vanilla, yam, brown sugar, sweet butter cream. Taste is malty sweet, yam, very smooth and drinkable, sweet cracker, medium body, yam linger. Excellent Oktoberfest.
