Ayinger Oktober Fest-Märzen
Privatbrauerei Franz Inselkammer KG / Brauerei Aying
500 ml bottle poured into a Samuel Adams "perfect pint"
Bright golden-amber with a creamy dull white head and some lacing.
Pleasantly rich and sweet toasted malt aroma. Boiled potatoes like notes, but not repulsive in any manner. Nothing overpowering. No hops.
Taste is never overpowering. Slight sweetness and balancing bitterness is noted. Taste has toasted elements of smell. Finishes fairly clean, but a malty beer will get to you in enough time: the finish tilts towards bitter when the beer is cold, and towards malty, but not cloying, when it's warm.
Medium body, average carbonation, and a creamy mouthfeel, especially as the beer warmed. The residual sweetness brings the score down to 4.
Pretty high. I could see it as a sessionable beer, although alcohol is high by my standards of a sessionable beer. And, it's one of those beers that are best drank cold.
Good representation of the style. To quote BJCP, "This is one of the classic malty styles, with a maltiness that is often described as soft, complex, and elegant but never cloying". However, as a beer, it's not something that I would designate as "must have".
