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.

A solid caramel, malty brew with hints of citrus, fruit. A bit dull and shallow.

Ernest (6343) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 16, 2002
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2013 Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is light amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, cookie), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, apricot). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Ok but nothing special. Fairly sweet without much to balance. Simple aroma.

Its got a hazy yeastiness reminescent of strong wheats and that sets it apart from other fests, though after a while you do feel out a fair round malt.

DSG (6329) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 27, 2008
(10/13/08) Draught at Map Room in Chicago. Clear deep golden color with a small white head. Malty aroma with some toast and caramel notes as well as nutty hints. Sweetish malty flavor with caramel, toasted bread, some light fruitiness and light buttery hints. Medium-bodied. Nothing exciting, but OK.

Pours a light amber with quite a bit of head. Strong caramel malt flavor that finishes slightly bitter. Pretty decent Octoberfest brew.

biggmike (480) - Hattiesburg, Mississippi, USA - JAN 21, 2009
Poured an attractive copper color with nice white head that lasted a while. Aroma was of sweet malt, caramel, and just a bit of hop aroma. Flavor is pretty much the same with the sweetness being offset by just a bit of hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is good. Beer is good, but I’ve had much better O-fests.

Sweet and malty beginning, light, somewhat watery, sticky fruity and flowery hops. Fair Oktoberfest.

ContemplateBeer (1580) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 30, 2009
White grape, plum, apples and caramel round out the aroma. Appearance is light red with a little lacing in the glass. Flavor has some ripe apple, bread, caramel and sour grape. Palate is fizzy. Good, but not too outstanding.

Good beer, but not the best Oktoberfest ever, Weak, but very good flavor. I wish it was a stronger flavor.
