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.

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2004 Big white foamy head out of the bottle, a little lacing. Liquid Gold in color. In my opinion, not as good as Capital Fest or Leinenkugel Oktoberfest. My Opinion. Smooth drinkable marzen very tasty. I like it.

500 mL bottle. Thought I loved Sam’s Octoberfest, but it doesn’t compare as far as flavor profile. The depth of flavors in this Marzen is incredible. I’m ready to go to Germany now for the real deal. Can’t even describe in words. Wish it was easier to find around here. I had to order it through my bar and make it the beer of the month, but they ran out after I got my first and only case. Will start earlier next year.

Very crisp, rich aroma. Pours gold with medium head, has a toasted taste with moderate carbonation. Mild hop flavor with woody hints. Very tasty Oktoberfest. One of my favorites.

This is my favorite Oktoberfest beer. Pours a medium copper with an off-white one finger head. Nice balance with between the hops and lightly roasted malts. Appropriate carbonation and great overall appearance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer brings me back to the time I was travelling on a train from Salzburg to Munich for the 2012 Oktoberfest. On the train I met a few locals and I decided to challenge the Germans to a beer drinking contest. By the time the first German hit the ground drunk I was about 6 liters deep and they were somewhere on their 4th and 5th. The weather was great that day

One of the best oktoberfest beers. The malty nose and citrus hops make for a great relaxing birra!

A solid offering from what some consider to be the best Munich-area brewery, Copper-colored with very little head, lingering finish and fairly sweet. Good hops, balances the malt very well.

Pours perfectly clear copper-orange with fluffy, off-white head. Smells malty and kind of sweet with a touch of hops. Taste follows the nose, it’s good but nothing super outstanding, but probably the best of the style I’ve ever had. Medium-bodied with a smooth, wet texture and decent mouth-carbonation, Ayinger Oktober Fest-Märzen finishes lightly crisp.
