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.

Pours a beautiful copper color w/ a medium semi creamy froth leaving a dusty layer on top. Aroma is balanced malt and hop. Medium nectar w/ ample residual effers. Flavors are fruity w/ a nice malty backbone. Just enough hops to sustain a perfect balance. No annoying grassy hay aromas or flavors. Smooth w/ a crisp finish. Highly recommended.

This is THE best Oktober Fest-Märzen I have ever had. There is no other. Smooth and sweet. This is the one beer you can’t get enough of. Whatever these brewers did, they did it right!

This is the best Oktoberfest beer I have had. You have to let this one warm up a bit, do not drink this too cold. The flavors will be hidden, let it warm and the flavors will open. The nose is of natural cereal and bread. The palate is similar with soft malt. When compared to all the others, it is clear that this is special. A world class Oktoberfest. Prost!

I am going to pass on the mouth feel, aroma, starts with this ends with that nonsense with this one. This is the best marzen I have ever consumed. Spaten and Paulaner are still world class, but this is the best!

This is the best Oktoberfest I've ever had. It is sweet but and caramely with a touch of nuttiness. It has a bit the "European" flavor but still tastes fresh (not skunky). ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

In a beer drinkers life, this is the best beer I’ve ever had. It was superbly balanced, square in the palate and aeromatic on the finish. I couldn’t believe it when I was drinking it.

I just picked up 60 bottles- this is truly a great Seasonal and is the best Oktoberfest I have ever had plus it seems very consistent from year to year. The refrigerator is now stocked and I will be popping the top on one of these bottles this evening!

What a great lager. The fresh, live, citrusy flavor is exquisitely judged. And quite the kick on this baby! Terrific brewing.

Green apple amongst a yeasty aroma. Same with taste with wonderful bubbly feel and balanced bittersweet finish. Wonderful beer!

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2015 Pours a hazy copper with little to no retention. Aroma of biscuit and yeast (in a good way). Taste of toast and caramel. Smooth, almost buttery palate... mouth feel is remarkable. The finest I’ve had yet of this style. Off to get another!
