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.

Has a cloudy amber color and malty smell. The taste has a crisp bitterness and finishes the same, but sort of empty. It seems to be lacking any body. Overall, not the best beer.

Bottle from Bev Mo La Mesa. Beer poured a medium golden color. The head was white and very big! Aroma and flavor were mostly malty with some hops and fruit.

Andy_ (683) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 14, 2013
Orange clear beer, little darker than your average German Helles. Little white dense head which disappers quickly leaving lacing on the glass. Aroma is a bit like a bulk lager, maizey starchey sweet with some nice grassy hops as well. The taste is fortunately cleaner with maltiness, sweetness and crisp bitterness. The finish is medium long and bitter with a little alcohol coming through. Mouthfeel is smooth and thicker than medium. This is the kind of beer I would imagine drinking in Germany from a liter pint glass.

Pours a crystal clear amber with a foamy white head. Aroma has a bit of band aid. It may be a bad bottle. Once behind it the aroma was honey sweet. The flavor is syrupy sweet up front with a touch of floral hops and a clean dry finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Light amber color. Some phenolics in the nose but they were not prevalent in tasting (thank goodness.) Slightly sweet and a bit watery. Not too impressive on the palate, although it did have a smooth character that I appreciated. Overall though, I just wasn’t that impressed.

mikey (503) - farmington, Utah, USA - OCT 13, 2004
Apricot in appearence with a sturdy white head. Light caramel aroma with a very subtle hop character. Very thin mouthfeel with just a hint of caramel in the taste. Not anything to get excited about. It’s not the best Oktoberfest I’ve ever tried. This is missing the clean sweetness that one would expect from this style.

UPDATED: OCT 5, 2008 (Draft @ GM, HOU): Pours an amber body, orange. Whitish head, small, diminishing. Malty sweet aroma, fruity. Not very strong. Fruity, flowery, malty. Some light fruity, malty taste.

ChainGangGuy (4373) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 10, 2007
Appearance: Served in an Ayinger glass, this beer pours a deep golden body with a frothy, off-white head. Very active bubbles. Smell: Light bready, toffee-scented aroma. Maybe some apples, too. Taste: Whoa, well, the malts are fairly played down flavor-wise. What remains is a restrained doughy flavor with a floral hoppiness. Noticeably more musty than other Oktoberfests. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Low carbonation - nearly flat. Slight alcohol warming comes through in the finish. Drinkability: Not nearly as moving or stirring as some other Oktoberfests available.
