Very sweet aroma, honey-like and slightly floral. Light bronze color with an off white head. The taste is also very sweet and malty with a hint of hops at the end and a metallic aftertaste. Good slick palate with a tingle of carbonation. This was good but I have had better.

The gold standard in Oktoberfests. I base every Oktoberfest off of this beer.

Another fine example Oktoberfest from the ever reliable Ayinger folks, too bad this one doesn't come with a plastic goat! It pours a nice rich orange neon hue with a rustic warm malt aroma that smells of freshly baked corn bread. The taste is creamy and smooth with a warm mouthfeel and a nice subtle, but not cloying sweetness, a pitch-perfect Oktoberfest. Good for jamming some Dan tunes while missing your boo boo and trying to determine the best Steely guitar solos.

UPDATED: SEP 8, 2017 Bottle. Pours amber with a small tan colored head. Malty aroma with caramel notes. Sweet flavor with cereal and biscuit notes. Medium bodied and pretty well balanced.

Holy shit this is a good Oktoberfest, top one of the season so far. If I see this one somewhere again, I will make sure to drink it ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

16.9floz (500ml) bottle, no freshness date, $3 paid, poured contents into a mug glass. Appears a translucent amber-gold, with toasty caramel aroma notes. Tastes like Hawaiian sweet bread with a biscuity back. The body is medium, but a bit on the heavy side, which is characteristic for the style. I've had this consistently sporadically...a contradictory statement, yes as I enjoy having this once a year in season to set the ideal take on the the style.

500 mL bottle. The pour is a darker golden amber with a thick pillowy white head and no lace as it falls down to a thin ring. The aroma is pretty good. The sweetness is big. Sweet malts and caramel up front with a soft light fruit and a candy on it. Sweet, not over bearing and good. The flavor is keeping up the sweet malt. The caramel fades a little in favor of the fruits and an earthy hop bitterness takes over on the back end. The mouth feel is medium bodied and has a little too much of a carbonation happening. The aftertaste is lingeringly malty and carries that earthy bitterness. Not too bad. 7 4 7 4 15

Bottle pours a clear pale amber gold with a huge off white head. Wet dog like aroma of caramel and toffee malt. Taste of light clean caramel and toffee malt with a light earth hop and yeast on the finish. Decent and drinkable for the style.
