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.

The oktoberfest against which I compare all others at this point. Tried as part of a fall beer tasting session with James, the Cunigans, and Jess. Was incredibly impressed with the balance of this beer. Solid caramel foundation, somewhat sweet with a medium body and smooth mouthfeel. Imminently drinkable.

This is, I think, the best Octoberfest that I have tried. Very malty with a medium body.

It has a rich deep golden color with very good clarity and some nice carbonation flowing up to the head. The head has a creamy off white color and rises up tall in the glass before slowly settling down to a nice foamy cap. In the nose there are some sweet bready and light toasted notes with light grain and some floral/spicy hops. The flavor has a very enjoyable malty character. There is mild sweetness, bready and light toasted grain notes, pie crust and very light caramel notes. This is balanced by some mild bitterness and notes of spicy/floral hops. The hops turn more leafy and mineral like in the finish which is crisp and refreshing. Its body has a solid medium to full feel with well balanced carbonation.

Oh if it only had that slightly dry roastiness that I crave so much in the finish. Oh well, still an exemplary beer.

sweet malt aroma. Hazy golden color. very malty smell. A very demanding chewy beer but still very balanced and light. The coolest part of this beer is the bottlecap.

Unfiltered straight from an oak cask at an Ayinger pub in Munich (near to the hofbrauhaus) This was the best Oktoberfest beer of our trip which is ironic because Ayinger is not a Munich brewery and therefore is not present at the Oktoberfest. I loved this beer it had a huge mouth feel and really tasted and felt like a real Marzen.

Love this beer. It strikes the perfect balance between the drinkable but flat oktoberfests served on the wiesen, and the overly carmelly and sweet export oktoberfests that most breweries brew. It has a subdued yet complex malt sweetness but finishes light and clean. Not cloying. This is the archetype.

Rich malty aroma full of biscuit. No hops in the aroma. Amber, clear appearance. White head with good retention. The flavor is malt forward with nice bready graininess. The mouthfeel is medium and creamy with a semidry finish. Overall an excellent example of the marzen style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
