3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rated while drinking: Pours golden copper with a nice fluffy off-white head. Not much lacing, but the head remains intact as it moves around. Lots of malts on the nose. Caramel almost sweet smelling, followed up by biscuits and warm bread. Near the end you can pick up herbal notes as well. Complex and sweet malts on the tongue. More bread-like character that I noticed in the aroma. Well-blended flavor, but complex on every other sip. Smooth and crisp on the palate. As some other people mentioned, its a tad bit watery, but doesn’t take away from the face value of the beer. Very drinkable. Pretty sure I’ve had this before with my brother. I’ll have to try some more German beers.

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.

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.
