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.

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

Oh, is this splendid. Let’s start with the scent. Beautiful burnt malts. It follows through in flavor. This is a malt-heavy beer, and it is stunning. Just stunning.

This brew is a thing of beauty. Bubbly goodness travelling up the glass to form a perfect a head. Smells great! Smooth. Great after taste. Lots of flavour. Lots going on. Lingers. Warms. Paul Ay(z)inger would enjoy this one. I need to find this beer in town and load up. Don't want this party to end. My taste buds will be boogeyin' long after this beer is done. Yowzer wowzer. Long live Ayinger Oktoberfest Marzen! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

16.9 oz bottle served in a tulip. Pour is a dull, but shimmering gold with an inch of foamy white head on top. Nose is squash, light spice, dominant (but not overbearing) malt, and a light sweet honey. Taste is right on par ... the malt and squash jump the gun, then the honey and spice swagger in and last very pleasantly through the finish. This is a fantastic beer, let alone the best Oktoberfest I’ve ever tried, and I really wish I had a case of this stuff. I rated Paulaner high, but in hindsight, I could not give it the same rating after having this. This is my first beer from Ayinger and I hope the rest of their line-up is not disappointing.

Clear light amber pour with a hint of garnet. Massive head with excellent lacing and retention. The nose is sweet biscuit malt with a little caramel over a faint, almost citric, spiciness. Nice light medium body with a slick smooth texture that approaches creamy. Slightly above normal carbonation with a good bit of effervescence on the finish. The flavor profile is quite nice, a bit complex, and very well balanced. The sweet malt flavors are there, but not to the extent that they are overpowering. It begins with sweet biscuit, flows to a caramel note and then the effervescence cleans the palate and allows the complexity to escape. The middle presents a multitude of subtle flavors - citric, dark fruit, light bitterness and spicy hops. The smooth finish leaves you with a blend of the aforementioned flavors.

Pours a fairly clear copper with a large initial off white head that slowly settles into a nice thin but dense top and leaves great lace. Aroma is rich maltiness, melanoidins, toast. Flavour is rich maltiness/sweetness, melanoidins, bread crusts, mild noble hop like bitterness, fairly clean and a moderately dry finish. Great example of the style!

Probably the best Oktoberfest in the world. Light enough to have a few and such a classic smooth taste ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
