Pours golden, white head.
Aroma and taste has this ncie and sweet almost vegetable scent and mouthfeel. there is also plenty of nice malt and sweet sugar..
Another fine offering by Ayinger. They clearly have their own style. MoritzF (10095) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - OCT 29, 2006
(bottle, with many thanks to joss!) Hazy orange-amber colour with a medium-sized off-white foamy head. Slightly dusty, sweet toast-malty , nutty aroma with a touch of honey. Initially sweet maty, toasty and nutty taste with light fruity shades, medium bodied with a smooth carbonation; dry toast-malty, moderately bitter and herbal finish with a pleasant nutty, spicy aftertaste. Nice one. JorisPPattyn (10072) - BELGIUM - OCT 19, 2008
Foxy-orange beer, clear, with a small cream-beige coloured head. Bottom of bottle shows scary UFO’s, but they stick to their place. Earthy-leafy nose, with some caramel apparent. Strange extra aroma, as from the frying fat from roast fowl. Leafy, earthy flavours and pretty bitterish from beautiful continental noble hops; fine and delicate and tasty at the same time. Finishing dry-bitter, and still leaving an impression of fruitiness behind. Another one with amazing balance. Warming up, this roast-fat creeps into the taste as well. Light to medium bodied, well-carbonated, slight slickness. Wow, joss, this ranks amongst the best from the already famous Ayingerbräu. Excellent beer, even bottled, wish I could taste this one from the Zwickelhahn one day. MartinT (10036) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 3, 2012
My Bottom Line :
GT (10017) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 7, 2010
Honeyed and toasted cereals reign within this Festbier’s rich yet quaffable mouthfeel, building a textbook example of this type of lager.
Further Personal Perceptions :
-A veil of foam floats atop the pale amber shine.
-The finish is a tad shallow for my tastes (mostly sweetness and shy on the spicy hop bitterness).
-Malts also develop bread-like flavors.
-This is as pleasant (and linear) as most Oktoberfests I’ve had from Bavaria. Just not a huge fan of this type of lager (too sweet and predictable).
Tap at Paradiso Dupont. Pours a clear, light amber with a fizzy, small creme to yellow head. Little retention. No lace. Aroma of candy corn and toffee. Taste is super malty and toffee froward. Sweet, chewy orange candies and candy corn abound moving to an astringent palate. Meh. bb (9789) - Alamo, California, USA - NOV 21, 2003
Bottle. Orangish-amber and slightly cloudy with a big off-white head. Aroma is of slightly toasted malts. Flavor is a rich malty, but very smopoth and not heavy - somewhat nutty with a bit of spice. This is easy to drink and I'd be willing to drink a lot of it. arminjewell (9720) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 17, 2011
On tap, poured orange with slightly off white head. Aroma had notes of some grass, pine, moving into some biscuit and very slight spice note. Taste was a bit watered down, but had notes of grass, biscuit, some slight caramel and spice, finishing slightly bitter. Needed more maltiness for the style, but wasn’t bad.

Draught at Taphouse. Low fluffy white quickly disappearing head. Hazy amber body. Sweet fruity alcohol dominated malt caramel aroma and flavor with hints of almonds and a suitable amount of hops bitterness, low carbonation and a long finish. blipp (9691) - La Mesa, California, USA - NOV 13, 2011
Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. Toasty and sweet malty aroma with some light nutty notes. The flavor has sweet malts, toffee, nuts, toast, and a light floral hoppy bitterness. Good stuff.
