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.

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.

500 ml bottle purchased at Monaghans. Poured an orange/amber with an initial large white head that settled into a thin layer that remained for most of the beer. Sweet malty aroma which reminded me off a mixture of chewy candy...caramel, toffee, butterscotch, molases. Body was a little to thin and the carbonation could of used some bulking up. Initial fruity flavor that is quickly taken over by a smokey maltiness. I was expecting more from this since it is rated rather high.

A solid caramel, malty brew with hints of citrus, fruit. A bit dull and shallow.

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 16, 2002
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2013 Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is light amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, cookie), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, apricot). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Ok but nothing special. Fairly sweet without much to balance. Simple aroma.

Its got a hazy yeastiness reminescent of strong wheats and that sets it apart from other fests, though after a while you do feel out a fair round malt.

Aubrey (3417) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - OCT 28, 2003
Bright orange with a lofty, rocky, cavernous head (whipped egg whites). Light mouthfeel up front, finishes soft and creamy; light carbonation ... watery at times. Malts were lightly sweet, bready and slightly chalky. Hops were light, herbal and slightly bitter. Well made, but very mild in many ways.

The DM & Hotstuff’s European Honeymoon trip beer number 50. This draft brew from a brauhaus in Munich Germany poured a small sized head of finely sized white colored mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a carbonated transparent brown colored body and an excellent lacing. The aroma was mildly malty and the mouth feel was smooth with a little tingle. The flavor was mild with caramel and brown malt notes.
