Ayinger Oktober Fest-Marzen poured into the tumbler cloudy, hazed, and burnt orange in color. The glass was crowned with a meringue-like off-white head. Eventually the head fell to a mottled cap, but the lace remained thick and tacky.
The smell is predominantly sweet malts with a toasted nutty character, sweet fruity esters and a sharp graininess that is not wholly unpleasant.
The taste is set up by sweet caramel malts with a toasted nuttiness. The middle is light fruit flavors, spices and peppery alcohol. This beer had just enough hop bitterness to keep the malty sweetness in check. The nutty grain flavor lingers, not that this was a bad thing.
The moderately active carbonation was comprised of tiny bubbles that tingled on the tongue. The body was medium and the mouthfeel is somewhere betwewen crisp and slick (if there is such a thing).

I have to admit that I have never been a huge fan of Octoberfest/Marzen. Of the ones I have tried this is easily my favorite so far. Based on this version from Ayinger I may have to dig a little deeper into the style.
