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.

Wow, this what an October Fest should be. Pours deep golden with thick white head. Good malt aroma with minimal hops, great balance, creamy mouth fedel, really good beer.

Golden color, slightly sweet, nice medium body -- very, very drinkable. Ayinger has one attribute that I have never tasted in any beer -- no "after" anything, it literally disappears from your palate. It smells and tastes great going down and then it was like you just drank fresh water. My wife, who is not a beer drinker, noticed it first and liked Ayinger (only other beer she will take half a glass of is Guinness).

Bottle from beer club. What do you know a fall beer with no cloves or spice flavors. Clear golden pour with a medium white head. Crisp, slightly sweet, floral, bread, dry finish. Nicely done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

0.5 bottle as Ayinger Kirtabier. Appearance is amber and cloudy with a nice head. At first you feel some sweet malts but then the hops will dry out things in the end. It is like a Pilsener just a bit more darker and, well, more alcohol. Quite easy to drink, which sounds dangerous.

Unde (902) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 14, 2016
Golden slight amber colour with nice head on top. Aroma has a lot of malty character, slight sweetness and hint of grass hops. Taste has round malty backbone, a bit bitter ending with grass. Fullish body and medium carbonation. Really malty and has lots of character.

Moebbels (728) - FINLAND - OCT 12, 2016
Due to the large amount of yeast trub in the bottle, this is rather hazy dark yellow beer with a small amount of white foam. Nice aroma with malty and herbal notes. Malty taste with some nice herbal bitterness on the finish. Lively carbonation and quite full palate that is still easy to chug. Very well made with good drinkability, nice maltiness, balance and aroma.

ciocanelu (1428) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - OCT 12, 2016
Hazy amber color with white head. Aroma has some caramel, slight sourdough and bread crust. Taste starts with intense bread crust, slightly sweet and malty but finishes with a nice, earthy bitterness. Light to medium body with medium carbonation. Although I don’t like the style too much, this one is quite good.

16.9 oz. bottle. Pours a nice deep amber/gold with a solid two finger white head. Good lace. Nice sweet smell of grains, honey, leaves with a floral hop note. Lightly sweet flavor. More floral notes, grass, nuts, grains. Autumn in a liquid form. Smooth bodied and goes down easy.

$3.59 bottle from Wine Warehouse. So I guess I’m not taking a day off after the last two days of really boozing it up. Pours golden, nearly clear, with a large soft off-white head. Very pleasant aroma of sweet grasses, browning leaves, some deep fruitiness in there as well. Very smooth and balanced flavor of bittersweet grasses and browning leaves, light fruit. Quite tasty.
