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.

Courtesy of Tony @ OTH. Pours golden, white head. Aroma and taste has this ncie and sweet almost vegetable scent and mouthfeel. there is also plenty of nice malt and sweet sugar.. Another fine offering by Ayinger. They clearly have their own style.

MartinT (9617) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 3, 2012
My Bottom Line :
Honeyed and toasted cereals reign within this Festbier’s rich yet quaffable mouthfeel, building a textbook example of this type of lager.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A veil of foam floats atop the pale amber shine.
-The finish is a tad shallow for my tastes (mostly sweetness and shy on the spicy hop bitterness).
-Malts also develop bread-like flavors.
-This is as pleasant (and linear) as most Oktoberfests I’ve had from Bavaria. Just not a huge fan of this type of lager (too sweet and predictable).

Bottle.

MoritzF (9600) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - OCT 29, 2006
(bottle, with many thanks to joss!) Hazy orange-amber colour with a medium-sized off-white foamy head. Slightly dusty, sweet toast-malty , nutty aroma with a touch of honey. Initially sweet maty, toasty and nutty taste with light fruity shades, medium bodied with a smooth carbonation; dry toast-malty, moderately bitter and herbal finish with a pleasant nutty, spicy aftertaste. Nice one.

JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 29, 2006
500 ml bottle. Deep orange-amber beer. Gorgeous deep malty aroma, bread, light caramel and kettle caramelized/decocted richness. Herbal/spicy hop flavour over a soft toastiness. Flavour is well-balanced and very clean with sweet bready malts and softly spicy noble hops perfectly mingling. Perfectly quaffable... I could drink about a dozen of these.

arminjewell (9426) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 17, 2011
On tap, poured orange with slightly off white head. Aroma had notes of some grass, pine, moving into some biscuit and very slight spice note. Taste was a bit watered down, but had notes of grass, biscuit, some slight caramel and spice, finishing slightly bitter. Needed more maltiness for the style, but wasn’t bad.

3fourths (9296) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 31, 2004
Bottle. Bright and clear golden orange color with a just off-white head. Light nose of fall leaves, grains, whole wheat bread, a little bit of overripe apples and pears. A bit of a bite of hops near the finish, after a decent presentation of semi-sweet apples, wheat, slight vegetables and honey.

Skinnyviking (9213) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2014
Draught at Taphouse. Low fluffy white quickly disappearing head. Hazy amber body. Sweet fruity alcohol dominated malt caramel aroma and flavor with hints of almonds and a suitable amount of hops bitterness, low carbonation and a long finish.

ManVsBeer (9200) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2012
A little above your average ’average’ Octoberfest brew, and gets tastier after a while, but not a market leader.

bb (8915) - Alamo, California, USA - NOV 21, 2003
Bottle. Orangish-amber and slightly cloudy with a big off-white head. Aroma is of slightly toasted malts. Flavor is a rich malty, but very smopoth and not heavy - somewhat nutty with a bit of spice. This is easy to drink and I'd be willing to drink a lot of it.

500ml bottle. Pours a orangeish hue, with a powerful frothy head that dies down after a few minutes. The taste is smooth and easy; a soft malty sweetness, some bitterness and floral hops, and some spice. A good drink. Easy and tasty.
