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.

Had this one a while back but forgot to rate it. This a sweet one for an oktoberfest style of beer. Easy to drink and very refreshing.

My first Oktober Fest that tasted really impressed me. I look for it every year. There may be better but there is much worse. I’ll keep looking. October is my favorite time of year.

A good, enjoyable beer. Gets better as you drink it and it warms up. Really brings out the malt. Good stuff.

Bottle. Amber body with splashes of ruby throughout. Tall frothy tan head violently bubbles up then eases to a point of rest leaving a really nice lacing on the glass. Nose is malty and bready with light flowery notes and hops. Taste unfortunately has some metallic notes in it (iron? kind of like tasting blood). Very odd and unappealing which is different for an Ayinger beer. Malt chewiness, light hops and caramel. Otherwise this is pretty good. Body is carbonated but smooth. Finishes with more malt and dark bread notes along with light caraeml, fruit and floral hops. Not too bad!

Bottled. Copper coloured, beige thick creamy huge head. Malts and hops in aroma, along with hay and caramel. Strong flavour of hops and malt. Wellbalanced and pleasant. A bit roast and honey in aftertaste.

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2009 The aroma is grainy and has mild floral hops, incense, and caramel malt. The appearance is red/copper with a foamy head that turned a little clumpy. The flavor is very malty and has plenty of caramel and some honey. It’s a simple taste but good. The palate is just right for the style but finishes papery. Very nice and true to the style but, it did have a couple of issues.

500 ml bottle. Drank on 8/14/06. Very clear copper. 1+" light tan lumpy head. Drops fairly quickly to a ring. No lacing. Aroma - Spicy, some orange citrus, a little sweetness. Fairly strong. Flavor - fairly high up front bitterness. Kind of cold and lagerlike on the tongue. Spicy and sweet orangy flavors come out in the swallow and finish. Fairly dry finish. Palate - pretty light and fairly high carb. Overall - OK. I haven’t had too many O’fests, but this one seems a little overly orangy. I guess other than that it’s alright, but not too exciting.

Tap at St Urhos, Helsinki. Looks like a thick mead. Thick white foam. Aroma of some thick, dark Finnish bread I can’t quite place. Taste of dark malt, trickled sugar and a bit sour aftertaste. Not really my cup of.. .er... beer.

1 pt 1 oz bottle, pours a light golden color. Aroma is malty, almost has a tomato sauce like smell. Flavor is well balanced, very malty, medium finish. Not quite as good as I was expecting.

Bottle. Pours slightly hazy orange/amber with a rich frothy head. Roasted malt and caramel sweetness on the nose. Dry roasted malt and dough-like dryness on the palate. Yeasty dryness dominates over the malt. Slightly watery and not as rich on the palate as the nose would lead me to believe. Decent, though. Finishes carbonated and fairly dry.
