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. kempicus (343) - Bakewell, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2007
Unfiltered straight from an oak cask at an Ayinger pub in Munich (near to the hofbrauhaus) This was the best Oktoberfest beer of our trip which is ironic because Ayinger is not a Munich brewery and therefore is not present at the Oktoberfest. I loved this beer it had a huge mouth feel and really tasted and felt like a real Marzen. AxeMaster221 (343) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 24, 2002
This is the essence of Oktoberfest in a bottle. It poured a beautiful dark gold, with a wonderful malt nose. Smoooooooth, with a nice subtle yeast finish. Ok, its not Celebrator, but it stands on its own merits as perhaps the finest Fest brew i have tried yet. PeterA (342) - EL SALVADOR - NOV 1, 2003
Huge head, nice copper color. I thought I was in a bakery when I inhaled (a good thing). Definitely a sweet beer, but I had difficulty identifying the exact flavors. It seemed to leave a little residue in my mouth, but not of an unpleasant taste. TheSponge (342) - Lynnwood, Washington, USA - NOV 8, 2009
500 ml bottle given to me by a friend. Pours a beautifule orange/amber color with an off-white head. Flavor: Sweet malt, with hints of honey, orange, and a dry finish

Pretty good Octoberfest. Nothing special, but nothing offensive. Kind of on the light. Color was an orange-copper. humulus (339) - Salem, Missouri, USA - SEP 12, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2004 Pours golden-bronze like autumnal leaves and with an aroma I can only liken to a blustery september day. The malts are nutty and rich. The head is pillowy soft and evokes a deep pining for those cool and comfortable naps under turning trees and a weakening season. The hops are spicy and tart enough to match the bitter and all orchastrate into a vibrant offering. The tempo and rythmn of a melodic brew designed and derived for remberence, reflection and relaxation. I will not resist. HoppyScallywag (339) - Butler, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 3, 2015
Smooth with a little bite of caramel. Pretty darn tasty. Has a slight nutiness. Apparently, it's supposed to be THEE best Octoberfest. I don't know about that, but it's good.

Amber color. Sweet biscuit/cookie/bready malt aroma with a tinge of alcohol. Malty taste but the hops are more assertive than the aroma would lead one to believe. Medium body with soft Kolsch like mouthfeel. Slightly bitter at the end. FishManLA (337) - Abita Springs, Louisiana, USA - MAY 19, 2008
A medium amber color with a rather persistent white head and nice lacing. On the sweet side for a marzen with a sweet fruity, floral, malty nose and a sweat fruity taste with notes of bread. Finish starts with a ping of bitter hops with a lingering sweetness afterward. The hops and malts are quite nicely balanced.
