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.

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 (2662) - 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.

The aroma is characterized by nicely sweet malt. There is a big, almost white head over a shockingly golden (not orange) body. The flavor was extremely dull, offering just enough to be considered an Oktober. The palate is dull as well. Overall, this beer was a bitter disappointment. I expected much more from Ayinger.

Pours a brilliant clear orange, with a large white head that lasts, lacing nicely. Aroma is all malt - some toast, lots of raw smelling grain, and a tiny bit of sweetness. Flavor is of sweet and raw graininess, maybe a bit of hoppiness in the finish. On the medium side of thin for the body, medium amount of carbonation. Overall it is ok, but seems to be missing something to me.

Brown in ciolour with no head and nice lacing, Wheaty nose sweet almost citruicy, the flavor was complex and hard for me to pin down exactally what the flavor was. All I can say is that it is sweet bust till light and slightly hoppy.

Nice beer. I had quite a few of these. Lagers are the second best beer in the world. This one is pretty darned good. Be nice if they were more easily available.

Deeper golden color, off white head. Doughy malt, slightly earthy with a bit of toastiness. Medium bodied and fairly dry. It was ok but not all that great. I expected a bit more from Ayinger.

Pours a nice copper color. Aroma is where it loses marks. Its just not there. Flavor is nice. A very nice mix of malts then hops. Not sure if this is a real marzen as it lacks the burnt carmel taste but it is still good.
