HQT Octoberfest. 500 ml. bottle. I guess I’m just a wet blanket but I didn’t think this was an enjoyable beer at all. A little on the thick side, with a bitter aftertaste. Didn’t like the silage smell. I think it was a good light beer, that you could drink all day. I’msure it taste better on tap... and on Germany. I’ll make sure to give it a second chance when I’m there.

On tap at a beer garden. Nice amber glow with medium head. Taste is malt with hops layered in the background. Mild and smooth with good body. Just about perfect for an event where you are going to have several. It made many people smile. Well worth having.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a beautiful amber honey with a white to slightly off white head of tightly packed bubbles. It’s quite stunning. Wonderful aroma, like fresh bread: caramel, bread, roasty nuts, light resin, floral hops, some barnyard, some raisin, some soy sauce, some vanilla... quite complex. Taste is very well balanced. Lingering dry bitter finish is nice BUT I detected a strange soapy glue mouthfeel. Almost felt like I had licked to many envelopes... This might be from my serving temperature (much warmer than usual) OR I had some hamburger meat while reviewing. ANYWAY, great beer, highly recommend, would drink again, will buy again.

From a 500-ml bottle. Pours a golden color with a very thick head. Aromas are subtle--faint grass and malt. Flavors are caramel with subdued citrus notes and a very subtle malt bite. A decent, well-rounded beer.

Ayinger Oktober Fest-Märzen has a very thick, off-white head, a clear, bubbly, light copper appearance, and some decent lacing left behind. The aroma is of brown bread, bread crust, sweetness, and bread dough. Taste is of brown bread, bread dough, barley malt, sweetness, some sourness, and a nice, mellow hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and the beer finishes crisp, refreshing, and highly drinkable. This is a very enjoyable beer, and I score it most excellent. RJT

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Une bouteille de 50 cl. Une robe dorée. Un anneau de mousse. Un nez malté. Du caramel. Du miel. De la pâte à pain. Une fleur. Une orange. Un goût malté. Des céréales riches. Du caramel au beurre. Une touche citronnée/florale. Un corps bien portant. Un pétillement actif. Une texture lourde et huileuse. Une finale intéressante. Des houblons à la remorque de céréales maltées. Bref, intéressante sans être renversante.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Orange clear beer, little darker than your average German Helles. Little white dense head which disappers quickly leaving lacing on the glass. Aroma is a bit like a bulk lager, maizey starchey sweet with some nice grassy hops as well. The taste is fortunately cleaner with maltiness, sweetness and crisp bitterness. The finish is medium long and bitter with a little alcohol coming through. Mouthfeel is smooth and thicker than medium. This is the kind of beer I would imagine drinking in Germany from a liter pint glass.

Delicious Oktoberfest. Copper color, foamy head. Strong malt flavor. All I need now is an Oom Pa band!
