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. An Autumn Brew.

    Appearance- Golden orange color with two and a half fingers worth of off-white head. Good head retention with a fair amount of runny lacing.

    Smell- Caramel malt, crackers, grain and honey.

    Taste- Rich malty sweetness with notes of caramel and honey. Very faint hints of hop bitterness.

    Mouthfeel- Medium bodied, creamy, and smooth. Nice amount of carbonation.

    Overall- A tasty oktoberfest style brew. Very drinkable and very enjoyable.

    [Best served in a Lager glass]

    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.

    Presentation: It was poured from a brown 500ml bottle into a big mug. There appears to be no freshness date on the label.

    Appearance: It has a rich deep golden color with very good clarity and some nice carbonation flowing up to the head. The head has a creamy off white color and rises up tall in the glass before slowly settling down to a nice foamy cap.

    Smell: In the nose there are some sweet bready and light toasted notes with light grain and some floral/spicy hops.

    Taste/Palate: The flavor has a very enjoyable malty character. There is mild sweetness, bready and light toasted grain notes, pie crust and very light caramel notes. This is balanced by some mild bitterness and notes of spicy/floral hops. The hops turn more leafy and mineral like in the finish which is crisp and refreshing. Its body has a solid medium to full feel with well balanced carbonation.

    Notes: This is a very well made Oktoberfest. To me it's like a Munich Helles Lager but a little deeper in color, richer and fuller in flavor and body with the same wonderful drinkability.
