Orange/golden beer, nothing too overly interesting, however it is a good beer. pinkzambia (1931) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 10, 2006
Bottle: Clear gold with off-white head. The aroma gives you the sensation of a warm blanket, full of gently roasted malts. The taste is predominately wheat and fall gourds such as butternut squash. The finish is smooth making this one of the best Oktoberfest’s out there. invalid (302) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 30, 2006
Copper color, almost amber. Smells sweet, not much head. Tastes sweet and some bisciut in there. Moggman (235) - Columbus, USA - NOV 21, 2006
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. papajohn (1250) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - NOV 16, 2006
Bottle from Holiday Wine Cellar: Sweet grain aroma. Golden amber color with a generous off white head. Flavor starts honey sweet and grainy followed by some hop spice and a lightly dry finish. Medium bodied and tangy with lively carbonation.

1 pt 1 oz bottle, pours a light golden color. Aroma is malty, almost has a tomato sauce like smell. Flavor is well balanced, very malty, medium finish. Not quite as good as I was expecting. BigBeer45 (1523) - Michigan, USA - NOV 13, 2006

Bottle 48F Lager Glass. Nice copper malt smells, a touch of hops, the malt smells very nice. Very bright orange color, with a frothy head looks very good. Good rich sweetness, nothing to strong similar to light brown sugar. Good royal hops characters, well balanaced very well balanced, very nicely done. Really very tasty. Great palate balance of carbonation and rich full feel. I really like this one, probably should be the definition of an oktoberfest, is Ayinger not one of the best breweries in the world? Do they make a bad beer? I haven’t tried a bad one yet. Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - NOV 5, 2006
Draught at the brewery. Red/Amber colour, good head. Malty aroma and flavour, with light bitterness, with only some herbal notes. Medium body, maybe the carbonation is not vey good, but is not a big problem. Pleasant. jake65 (3626) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - OCT 31, 2006
Bottle: Nice orange color with a huge white head. Taste is malty with some hops kick. Floral hop tones, sweet malt, a bit of yeast, and spice tones make this a nice Okto brew. I enjoyed this one very much!
