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.

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 (2657) - 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.

I give a bigger rating to this beer based on it’s style. For an Oktober, it’s unbelievable. For a great beer, it’s ok. There’s a nice malty aroma, as with most oktobers, with a nice crisp taste. Very suprising, for the style. This gave me a greater respect.

tlind2 (1159) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 25, 2008
Draught @ Kaunis Kampela, Helsinki. Burnished gold color, thick white head. Malty aroma with some wood. Smooth malty flavor with noticeable bitterness. Not a bad märzen at all, but somehow the flavor didn’t entice me completely.

drowland (6158) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - AUG 13, 2009
Light color for the style with a nice retaining head. Aroma and taste of malt and crackers, less sweet and caramelly than others. Hints of roasted malts.

Bottle courtesy of Sam at Hangar 24. Rating #729. Nice dark gold pour with a white head. Had a light toasted aroma, lots of graininess and slightly sweet, pretty good octo overall. (1039)
