Celebrated with this one while watching the Red Sox World Series parade. A fine beer for a great moment and a great team.
Pours a beautiful copper/golden color with a thick foamy off-white (almost tan) head. Absolutely gorgeous. Beautiful malty notes and a sweet malty flavor that is exquisite on your palate. Loved it. If you look at my other reviews of Ayinger beers, you’ll see that I’m a huge fan of their brews. This one is no exception. Highly recommended.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2006 Very solid and enjoyable. Malty presence that screams "German beer". Mildly sweet and spicey.

Golden tan color, thin head. Smell is fresh, fruity, a little nutty, oily, clean fruit and hops. Taste is spicy, pumpkin, a little sweet, crisp, refreshing, savory in a vegetabley way. Long sparkling finish. Excellent for any occasion or any reason.

Certainly not Ayinger’s best, but very good for the style.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2005 Wow, what an amazing beer! Poured from bottle into shaker glass. Not paying attention, I acidentally poured the yeasty sediment in which clouded it a bit. Otherwies it was a pale copper color. The slightly rocky off-white head slowly diminished. Medium body. Alcohol was well-hidden. My overall impression was malty, maybe a little nutty. YUM!

Great beer for fall. Light Amber color with light aroma. Full bodied with a sweet flavor spiced just enough. Finish remains sweet and very clean.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours Amber color with off white head. Aroma has a bit of malt sweetness. Taste is a nice balance of sweetness, and malt with a slighlty bitter finish. One of the best Oktober fest beers for sure.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
.5L bottle. Pours a crystal clear dark gold/light amber with a huge billowy head. Aroma is fairly weak caramel malts. Taste is clean, sweet malts with a bit of a buttery, yeasty finish. Hops are extremely subdued and there is no real bitterness to this beer. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel. This makes an outstanding food beer and goes down easy. Not bad for the price.
