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.

Clear light amber with an off-white head. Scent of honey and malt in a refreshing combination, later turning to floral hop aromas with malt. Light yet robust flavor with unassuming mouthfeel. Very good Oktoberfest - the only beer of the style that’s impressed me yet.

Bottle. The pour was a light clear amber with a huge (3-4 finger) white foamy head that had good retention and fairly good lacing. The aroma was very light and mild of a toasted biscuit malt, a mild floral hop and a light doughy yeast with a hint of caramel. The taste had an extremely light sweet malty presence from the start and finished about the same with a nice note of caramel at the end. The flavor was left hanging around for a nice long while after the swallow. Mouthfeel was surprisingly light in body and watery in texture with a fizzy carbonation. Overall an Oktoberfest that is super light in body and flavor. Although a tasty brew it could have used a little more of both.

Smells a tad stale and yeast, with some wheatyness. First hits the tongue with the same yeastyness, but is abated by the carbonation and wheatyness. Oily but light.

this beer was better than normal but not worth the $6.75 a bottle we paid for it. it was a little overly carbinated tasting so its not real smooth going down.

Drank with Ramenen. Bottle: 99% by style? Must be an Oktoberfest/Märzen thing; tastes like malzbier, very sweet, sugary. I guess this is not my type of beer.

Draft. Pours golden amber with a creamy, off-white head. Hoppy aroma, with hints of yeast, malt, spice, and wheat. Medium body with a weak finish. Sub-par Oktoberfest.

clear amber-straw color pours with foamy large and quickly diminishing head, aroma of metal and hay, nice mouthfeel, but somehow tastes flat, wondering if i got a bad bottle, hard to recommend off this tasting

I really didn’t like the fruity smell of this beer. It wasn’t bad but it was a little too sweet.
