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.

Bottle. The pour was a light clear amber with a huge (3-4 finger) white foamy head that had good retention and fairly good lacing. The aroma was very light and mild of a toasted biscuit malt, a mild floral hop and a light doughy yeast with a hint of caramel. The taste had an extremely light sweet malty presence from the start and finished about the same with a nice note of caramel at the end. The flavor was left hanging around for a nice long while after the swallow. Mouthfeel was surprisingly light in body and watery in texture with a fizzy carbonation. Overall an Oktoberfest that is super light in body and flavor. Although a tasty brew it could have used a little more of both.

Tap @Black Door. Clear amber color. Medium size, beige-yellow head, stays. Sweet, very malty, fruity, perfume in aroma. Sweet, caramel, sugary, malty in taste. Long lasting malts in aftertaste. Perhaps bit too sweet for me, but malts are just perfect in this brew.

500 mL bottle from Total Wine, Virginia Beach, VA. Dark orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Lager-like aroma of sweet pale malt and faint floral hops. Taste is somewhat sweet with notes of caramel and graham cracker blended with floral and mildly citrusy hops. Not my favorite style but this is the clear winner in its category.

Berard (500) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 13, 2015
Bottle. Pours caramel colored with a white head that lingers. Typical Oktoberfest style beer. One of the best, if not THE best, examples of the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SHIG (4045) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - OCT 9, 2015
Draft: Poured an amber to brown color with a large tan head, Aroma is sweet malt and grain with light hops. Taste was very refreshing with nice maltiness and yet had just enough grain and hops to give it depth. By far my favorite example of this style.
