3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Awesome Oktoberfest beer. A little sweet, a little hoppy, and plenty of grain dominates the palate. White head on top of a golden body, great beer.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear copper with a finger of pure white head that dissipates to a thin cap. Decent amount of lacing. Nose is very malty with some caramel and raisin. A slight graininess is also present. Mouth is very much the same. A lot of malt and caramel. Slightly bitter but very good.

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2003 Malty and sweet. Not much to notice as far as aroma goes. Alcohol is barely noticeable. Very drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Poured a nice copper color with a thick head. Aroma of sweet malts and a slight citrus note. Flavor was rather "crisp" and "spicy?" witha back bone of sweet malts. A rather dry mouthfeel, I dont know why but this Octoberfest didn’t move me the way Hacker-Pschorr did.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a beautiful red color with a nice amount of carbonation. Big, white head, but I did pour it fast. Caramel for the most part on the nose, but a bit of nuttiness to it. Not overly sweet, but the sweetness takes over because of a lack of anything else on the tongue. Light body, and easy drinking. If you don’t eat or drink anything, you will taste this beer for a long time. Don’t think as much of the style as others personally, but Ayinger does a damn good job on this beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from whole foods. Pours clear amber with two-finger head that quickly subsides to a thin skiff of bubbles. Sweet aroma of caramel, grains, and some mild floral notes. Malty flavor with the same kind of sweetness promised by the aroma, and a slight hops tingle. Clean and well balanced, lively texture on the tongue, lingering finish that reveals more grassy hops flavor. A pleasant beer.

Amber with a nice two finger head. Aroma is caramely. Flavor is malty with a hint of hops. Nicely balanced beer. One of the best Octoberfests I’ve had.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Dark gold color with a dense, creamy head. Laced nicely. Aroma was faintly sweet with a subtle grain presence. Grains far more present in the taste, along with an apple tang that leads nicely into the perfection of the hopping. Remains one of my favorite Oktoberfests.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber to German beer glass my daughter brought me (She went to Germany without me).Light amber with medium white head that laces throughout the drink. VA little banana and then some very delicate aromas--some floral hops, a little spice, cinnamon, Flavor is typically sweet with a nice quick dry bitter finish. Very crisp, yet smooth in the mouth. Very good for the style.
