Ratman197 (13634) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 17, 2006
500ml bottle poured a clearorange copper with a lasting off white head. Aromas of biscuity malt, carmel and a hint of n9oble hops in the background.Palate was medium to full bodied. Flavors of toasted malt, carmel and just a hint of hops with a smooth dry lingering malty finish. This is one MALTY mother of a beer!

Big beige head atop clear light copper body. Aroma is unusual (which, in an Oktoberfest, is extraordinary) -- mildly sweet, malty, bready. Taste is medium sweet, malty, caramel, toasty. Clean, light-medium body. Pleasant beer, not at all what you generally find in the run-of-the-mill oktoberfest available in the States.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2007 (Bottle) Pours an orangish-amber with a thick foamy head. Okay Oktoberfest brew, expected much more from an Ayinger brew.

DSG (12329) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 27, 2008
(10/13/08) Draught at Map Room in Chicago. Clear deep golden color with a small white head. Malty aroma with some toast and caramel notes as well as nutty hints. Sweetish malty flavor with caramel, toasted bread, some light fruitiness and light buttery hints. Medium-bodied. Nothing exciting, but OK.

Bottle. Pours orange with a frothy off-white head that mostly diminishes, some spotty lacing. Aroma is nutty malt (meal, cereal, straw), yeast (dough) and fruit (pear, apricot). Medium sweet malt and yeast flavor, fruity with hops and a medium acidity and bitterness. Medium bodied, dry and slightly spicy palate.

thewolf (12184) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 2, 2007
Bottle [thanks to MoritzF and Papsoe]. Pours a muddy orange with a quite small off-white head. Some lacing. Aroma is a little weak, based on sweet malts - almost like dough. Flavour is equally mild, though well-balanced. A general malty sweetness is mixed with a good dose of caramel with a fairly hoppy end. Not much Festbier in style, but interesting.
