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.

Ar: Light cracker malt, a touch of spicy hops. Ap: Clear orange-gold - large off-white head with excellent retention and a thick layer of lacing. T: Crisp cracker maltiness up front with some sulfur - turns into a firm toasted maltiness with spicy hop accent - light but firm bitterness at finish - extremely clean and refreshing. P: Medium-light body with high carbonation - finish is dry. O: Supremely drinkable with a beautiful depth of malt flavor that does not pass into bock territory - satisfying, clean - I could drink this by the liter.

Decent Oktoberfest beer. Tastes more mild than I prefer but certainly better than many competitors.

Tap@maninthemoon. Bärnstensfärgad vätska med ljust, lågt skum. Brödig, lätt degig doft. Matchen mellan sötma och beska slutar ovgjort. En oktoberöl i harmoni.

This is the best Oktoberfest I've ever had. It is sweet but and caramely with a touch of nuttiness. It has a bit the "European" flavor but still tastes fresh (not skunky). ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at growler guys meridian. Pours out a crisp clear golden topped with a white head. Nose is nice rich malts corn spice and a light grassy hop. Taste is more of the nice malts caramel nutty wood notes and a little grassy end.

From a bottle. Pours a clear gold with an off white head. Aroma of toast. Flavors of bread and toffee. Smooth clean finish. Fantastic for the style.

500 ml bottle bought at Gorgeous Wine & Cigar in Yuen Long.

Looks: Clear amber orange colour; Explosive two-finger head and crumpety off white foam which lasts for 3 minutes; Very good sticky lacing with fizzy carbonation.

Aroma: Very fragrant and sweet malt, with strong honey, orange, nuts, caramel, strong floral, sugar, bread, lemon and light grass.

Taste: Medium sweet full malt, with honey, light caramel, light floral, strong molasses, bread, light lemon and fair to light bitter grassy hops.

Body: Mid to light; Very slick palate.

Mouth Feel: Very good maltyness in a solid, slightly thick background. Has a understated strong lager feel, with good roundness, light honey backdrop with light floral and molasses. Fairly bready with light lemon to round. Clean and effective!

Hoppiness: Orange blossom, lemon and light grass in nose. Light floral, light lemon and fair grassy in taste; Bitterness is light for an abrupt, low-fi astringent flowery finish.

After Taste: Slightly dry. Nicely sweet and slightly bitter to mouth.

Comments: This one has good looks, nice orangey floral nutty aroma, subtle honey maltyness in taste with low hoppy finish. Nothing outlandish yet brewed for the occasion with right amount of characters. Very easy to enjoy and appreciate. Nice one!

Bottle in Seattle. Quite creamy white foam, golden brown body. Sweet, rich caramel malt. Modest sweetness, much richer body above the lager crispness. Caramel, wooden grain, some alcohol flavor. Quite sweet but rounded out nicely. Nice rich festbier.

Overall i wasnt impressed with Ayingers marzen. It poured a deep amber body with minimal carbonation, thin head very little lace. Aroma and flavor both had slight hints of caramel and a flavor reminisant of candy corn, kind of odd. I usually like this style of beer and this brewer but this just wasn’t that good. Re-rate on 9-15-09 Nice aroma and flavor some fruit/ floral notes with hints of caramel. much better the second time around from a 3.0 to a 3.6 Originally rated on 10/15/08.

Pours clear gold with a frothy white head. Nose is Bavarian hops and sweet German malts. Flavor is similar and rich and very well balanced with a touch of spice. Body is smooth and light. Very drinkable.
