OnTap Hamiltons. Light Amber color. Light caramel with a present roasty malt flavor, Crisp finish and aftertaste that last. Very delicious beer!

Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is of toasted malts, toffee, caramel, spices, and floral hops. Flavor starts off with the toasted malts, toffee, and caramel. Finishes with a slight bitterness from the floral hops. Has a somewhat decent, long lasting finish. Very good Oktoberfest.

A good overall aroma, but could use some more malt notes. A golden to copper color. Slightly roasted flavor that finishes even and smooth. Great representation of an Oktoberfest/Märzen.

500ml. solid copper color pours with moderate carbonation and a thin white head. fruity nose is reminiscent of white grape juice. a touch of grain and saaz hops round it out. clean malty grainy body is sweet and short. a little thin but not disappointing.

This pours a beautiful amber color with a big creamy head. Nice carbonation. The nose is malty and floral. Nice mouthfeel where you can taste the malt but a great balance is maintained throughout. I look forward to this beer every year.

Bottle. Doughy, sweet malt aroma. Hazy, amber with a fluffy off-white head. Nice lace. Very flavorful for only 5.8% ABV. Malty and moderately sweet. I can imagine how good this would be fresh from the tap. I may just have the opportunity to find out next Friday as a local German pub is serving it for their Oktoberfest kick-off. A little sweeter than I prefer, but better a little too much flavor than not enough. And frankly, it’s dead on to style.

Pours an orange tinted golden with a small, but persistent white head. Great sweet roasted malt, tofffee, banana, and a nice roasted nuttiness on the nose. Great full creamy mouthfeel with a good dose of spicing, like maybe nutmeg....or......hell I don’t know, but it is pleasant nonetheless.. Nice light floral hoppiness finishes out the palate carrying a light dose of heat. Very nice and exactly what I would expect from Ayinger.

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2007 Sample at Chef Paul’s, thanks Marci. Draft. The lighter orange color is deceptive- I thought it would be light on flavor, but what a great, unique taste this beer had. There was an underlying nutmeg / spice flavor- not like some kind of Holiday Ale- but quite subtle. Best Oktoberfest I’ve had.

Bottle. A light hazy amber beer with a beige head. The aroma is of caramel malt and fruits, so is the taste. Medium body with a dry finish.

Pours a deep copper with a massive white head that lasts a good time The nose is of fresh german malt with no hint of hop bitterness. This is very well rounded, but I was hoping for a little more sweetness. It almost has a little dryness to it. The carbonation is a little bit more than I was expecting, but they pretty much got this one right. This is extremely clean and refreshin with a very small bit of bitterness at the end.
