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.

Hmmmm....I think I like Paulaner better. This just seems to light and watery for me. Nice caramel hint though. Definately not bad, but not one of my first choices.

Rated 9/22/02: Pours a somewhat cloudy amber color, the head is frothy, voluminous, the lace in large sheets. Malt nose, front is lightly sweet, the top is light, the finish is nicely hopped, a bit dry, light to moderate carbonation. A decent drinking beer, not great, but good. Ranks #899 on my current 1000 beer master list.

TAR (2506) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - SEP 25, 2002
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2014 Pours with an abundant white, creamy and rocky foam. Subdued aromas of apricot, caramel, and toasted bread notes. Medium-full palate. Toffeeish firmness is lacking slightly. Notes of peach, straw, prunes, and potent residual sugars. Decent.

Pretty good. Cloudy amber color. Not enough hops to overwhelm the sweetness. Big malty flavor.

Nice thick head that does not last long. Slightly acidic aroma with hints of tomatoes, hops and malt. Nice deep amber color with ok carbonation. Body is a medium. Flavor is slightly sour with hops, malt presence. Alcohol is also not present in the taste. Finish is slightly bitter and coats the mouth without being creamy. An ok beer but a little too acidic for my tastes.

Nice malty aroma, sweet and a bit of hops. Slight hazy amber with no head. Med body & carb. Nice malty taste, bit sweet up front. Good tangy bitter hops at finish. Light sweet bitter after.

Nice color with a medium head. Slightly malty nose, inoffensive flavor. Bitter notes on the finish and a somewhat thin body. Good but nothing great.

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.
