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 radiant orange hue with a thick, fluffy white head. Aroma is heavy yeast, with grapes, white raisin, maybe some stale honey. This beer is highly carbonated, almost overly so, and stings the tip of the tongue upon the first sip. Finishes malty, with a nice hoppy backbone, and an above-average bitterness for this "style". Toasty malts are present in the finish as well. If I had to sum this up, I would say "Newcastle with a bunch of added hops thrown in".

Pours a orangish copper in color. There is a huge, fluffy white head on the pour. Not a lot in the nose of this beer at all. Taste is lots of malt. There’s a hint of nut and spice in the flavor. Very creamy on the mouthfeel and very easy drinking. This one will be gone before I realize it.

It is interesting to note the disparity of flavours and aromas found in this beer, depending on the year it was rated. I found it to be a solid rep of the style, but with nothing flashy or special going on. Straightforward buttery caramel malt with a low floral hop profile in the finish that almost becomes unnoticable after the first few sips.

Medium yellow amber color with large head. Decent mix of hops and malts. Good mouth feel.

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 25, 2008
500ml bottle. Pours a bright pumpkin orange with a nice thick foamy white cap that leaves sudsy lacing. Aroma is very sweet, malty, some plastic, and a little bit of alcohol. I can’t describe exactly why but I don’t really like the aroma. The plastic or the alcohol is distracting. It smells a little like a light Barleywine. Flavor is smooth and does not have any of the negative effects of the aroma. Crisp, somewhat dry. A pretty quick finish with just a touch of residual sweetness. This is fine but does not stick out as a great Octoberfest to me

Rich orange, tiny head. Woody aroma. Nutty edge to a dry woody taste. Rich, burnt corners too. Soft palate. Smooth grainy body. Very tasty.

Full-bodied, a bit to sweet.

Orangish in appearance, the subtle malting becomes more apparent in aroma and flavor as the beer warms. A bit light-bodied, however, the low roasted malts are pleasant, yet undemanding on the palate. A very easy to drink offering that I may have underrated on this occassion.

Indra (2711) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUN 2, 2002
Honey-like, medium golden amber color. Head is definitely there and so is the carbonation. Malty aroma, certainly some sweetness and caramel. Flavor is also largely malty (appropriately), with some spiciness, some very apparent caramel tastes, (sticky bun!) and a touch of hops, although these are hardly immediately apparent. Finish is rather long and malty. A bit more heavy-duty of a Fest style than I’m used to, but that’s not a bad thing.

More malt in the nose than in the taste! It has a dry grassy finish, but is very uninteresting.
