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.

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 (1236) - 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 (6596) - 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.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - OCT 31, 2009
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)

Pours a beautiful amber with nice froth on top. Smells grainy with slight Euro-funk underneath. The taste starts sweet, heavy on buttery banana, then dries out in the middle, gaining a grain-laced nutty roastiness. The finish stays slightly sweet, but the brisk carbonation limits what the flavors can achieve. Decent, but too imported for my tastes. (9/08)

SlovakSniper (3634) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 16, 2013
Une bouteille de 50 cl. Une robe dorée. Un anneau de mousse. Un nez malté. Du caramel. Du miel. De la pâte à pain. Une fleur. Une orange. Un goût malté. Des céréales riches. Du caramel au beurre. Une touche citronnée/florale. Un corps bien portant. Un pétillement actif. Une texture lourde et huileuse. Une finale intéressante. Des houblons à la remorque de céréales maltées. Bref, intéressante sans être renversante.

Malt and floral slightly fruity nose. Clear honey gold with a thick lasting foamy off white head. Light and fresh. Very smooth with the slightest hoppy bitterness on the finish. Very well balanced.

Roser (43) - Virginia, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Appearance- big foamy ivory white head that lasted a long time and left pretty decent lacing. Clear, amber, honey gold. Most appealing. Smell- clean, malty, bready, (slightly) spicy. Taste- toasted malts, biscuity, caramel. Very, very pleasant. Mouthfeel- light, smooth. Excellent balance. Overall- very nice. A solid brew. Never used to be a big fan of Marzen/Oktoberfest, but starting to enjoy more and more. Would have again (and again) and definitely recommend. Cheers!
