From a 500mL Bottle. Pours a transparent brassy amber color with a thick head of soapy off-white. Sweet, bready malt nose with notes of toasted bread crusts, grainy bran muffin, and brazil nut flesh. No estery characters, but displays that clean, almost metallic nose common to many lager yeasts. Light bodied, with a shimmering carbonation that creates a melting, soft texture to the lagery dryness of the beer. Delightful malty flavors of nutty caramel, devoid of any unnecessary sugar sweetness. Bready, biscuity, nutty, baked muffin flavors, with only a gentle kiss of spicy hops in the final smack. Classic o-fest; meets every expectation. Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 12, 2007
From a 500ml bottle--Poured a deep tawny-orange color with a robust and bustling head that soon disipated. Bready, grainy nose. Chewy mouth feel with full flavored hops and malts balance. Slightly spicy and noticeably sweet. This is what an Oktoberfest should taste like, I suppose. douglas88 (9421) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 11, 2007
500ml bottle. Pours a orangeish hue, with a powerful frothy head that dies down after a few minutes. The taste is smooth and easy; a soft malty sweetness, some bitterness and floral hops, and some spice. A good drink. Easy and tasty. Slinger (91) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - NOV 10, 2007
Pours light orange-nice white foamy head. Floral and clovey spices. Much better in flavor than scent.

Aroma is malty and nutty. Flavor is nutty, smooth, creamy malt. Slightly bitter to add balance. Good Oktoberfest. jobyone (234) - Charlotte, USA - NOV 1, 2007
Pours Amber color with off white head. Aroma has a bit of malt sweetness. Taste is a nice balance of sweetness, and malt with a slighlty bitter finish. One of the best Oktober fest beers for sure. mvcramer (243) - Lexington, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 30, 2007
Celebrated with this one while watching the Red Sox World Series parade. A fine beer for a great moment and a great team.
Pours a beautiful copper/golden color with a thick foamy off-white (almost tan) head. Absolutely gorgeous. Beautiful malty notes and a sweet malty flavor that is exquisite on your palate. Loved it. If you look at my other reviews of Ayinger beers, you’ll see that I’m a huge fan of their brews. This one is no exception. Highly recommended. emacgee (4680) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - OCT 29, 2007
Pours an amber orange with a thick creamy offwhite head. The aroma was malty, nutty, smokey, caramel. The flavor was rich and matly, a bit of smoke to it, caramel. More to the palate than most other oktoberfests. Jmichael (640) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - OCT 29, 2007
