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.

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.

Roser (44) - 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!

EyeAmBaldman (461) - Illinois, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Pours clear golden from a 500ml bottle with a thick white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is sweet on the nose, malty. Taste is yeast, malt, hops, and a tad of caramel sweetness. Has strong carbonation on the tongue with a nice clean finish. Good Oktoberfest beer.

Marduk (5332) - Reval, ESTONIA - NOV 15, 2015
Tap @Black Door. Clear amber color. Medium size, beige-yellow head, stays. Sweet, very malty, fruity, perfume in aroma. Sweet, caramel, sugary, malty in taste. Long lasting malts in aftertaste. Perhaps bit too sweet for me, but malts are just perfect in this brew.

Metalchopz (2954) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 23, 2016
Slightly hazy amber colour with a golden hue. Warm cap, kind of creamy, decent lasting and some good lacing. Bread malt aromas with caramel notes and some sweet fruitiness (dates, mild raisins). Hints of nuttiness. The taste is not as sweet, but still has some fruits, light caramel and hops in the finish. The blend between the hops and malts is quite nice in the aftertaste, which saves the flavours (as a little too mild, but rich with time). Pretty good for the style.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 22, 2002
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 (2581) - Knoxville, Tennessee, 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.

Dorwart (2491) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAR 29, 2003
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.
