This is a top choice for any "Octoberfest" style beer .. Pick this up if you see it! If you like the Sam Adams version this will not disappoint.

A light aroma and deep amber color raised my hopes for this one. Almost no bubbles and a distinctly nutty flavor made me appreciate these Bay Area summer (autumn) nights. It was just what I needed.

Nice golden lager with a thick white head. Aroma of noble hops - nice crispy flavor - well balanced and very drinkable. Very tasty for the $3.50 I paid at the store - glad I bought two!

Delicious. I’m a huge Marzen fan, so I was looking forward to trying a highly rated, German-brewed one. Victory’s Festbier’s been my go to local beer, but Ayinger’s truly does belong to a higher class. The aroma is far more powerful, full of all of the sweet, toffee and caramel notes that I’d expect. It’s perfectly balanced, smooth and finishes crisp. If I was at Oktoberfest, I imagine I’d have about six too many of these. Superb.

Bottle poured into glass mug. golden ruddy orange with little to no head. not surprising for an oktoberfest. light malty aroma. Has a hint of sweetness. Medium-light body and a dry finish. This is a very refreshing and drinkable beer.

Poured from 500 ml bottle, cool cap! awesome golden amber color, big fluffy head, some lacing on glass. Sweet flowerey smell, taste is refreshing full bodied and last for awhile. Awesome oktober fest, my favorite by far.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not a big lager fan and even less of an octoberfest fan but tried this beer because a friend raved about it. And I must say, its pretty good. big foamy head and a dark gold color. A fruity aroma pleasently presents itself. the taste is somewhat like a wheat beer and a dopplebock with a yeasty finish. Agood beer from a great brewery.

On tap at Flying Saucer-Cordova. Somewhat light pour. The floral notes are quite prominent. I drank this in a session with other Oktoberfests and it offered the most complex flavors and was probably the most well-executed of the beers I had even though I prefer the more classic flavor of Spaten.
