Ayinger Oktober Fest-Marzen is a fine example of a marzen. It pours a clear, copper color with an off white, mousse like head that easily measures three fingers. Aromas are herbal and caramel. Tastes are accented by caramel, lightly toasted malts and herbal hops with restrained bitterness. Medium sweetness from the malt. The finish is soft, silky smooth and short.
