This is a really great beer. Only have had Celebrator and this one from Ayinger but so far they are a winning brewer! GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - FEB 12, 2006
Thanks to my brother-in-law for this one (excellent guy). The aroma checks in with a nice creamy maltyness that smelled clean with no skunk as other reviews may have mentioned. Flavors were really creamy, malty, nutty flavor that was really enjoyable. A really nice beer. stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 8, 2006

"Had this off tap, Poured a medium gold color, large head. Lighter october then most, Smooth malty flavor hint of hops on the aftertaste. Very smooth. good beer." sfontain (851) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 15, 2006
Lovely, hazy, orange-copper; light, bubbly, creamy head. Extremely aromatic, with lots of citrus, along with light caramel, toasty malts, and even some berries; the tinest hint of allspice. Flavor has a lot of orange in it; sweet but clean and not sugary; malty; some wheatiness in there, I think. Medium body; smooth; goes down easy; barely sticky. Excellent, particuarly for the style.

Bottle. Darker ambery color, compared to other Octoberfests sampled together. Rich malty and a touch fruity aroma. More caramel malty flavors, and a touch of bread or dough. Drinks smooth. Kingsley (26) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 9, 2006
Very drinkable for a beer with such rich flavor. Not much on appearance: cloudy and with little head or lace. Nice fruity, floral aroma. Good balance of malt and hops; sweet but not too much so. Likerighteous (120) - Pflugerville, Texas, USA - JAN 8, 2006
Very smooth beer here. Nothing huge and demanding. Just pleasure to the nose throat and eyes. A bit dry and tart on the finish, not lingering. Still satisfies after a few glasses. Not cloying. barleybro57 (3) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - DEC 27, 2005 does not count
My favorite Oktoberfest/Marzen. Everything works for this great German beer. Smooth with roasted chocolate and spice hints. Great finish leaves you wanting more. entertheiceman (242) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 14, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2006 Very solid and enjoyable. Malty presence that screams "German beer". Mildly sweet and spicey.
