UPDATED: OCT 22, 2012 INCREDIBLE BEER! Malty and floral nose... Flavor was malty but had this slight floral thing going on too... slight hint of fruit also... One of my favorites! beerking99 (199) - Virginia, USA - NOV 2, 2003
Great malty-toasted aroma, with hints of honey and subtle background of hops. Beautiful amber-orange color, with a big, very dense, pure white head. Flavor is great malty and toasted with a very balancing hops backgroung. ljay6880 (475) - , Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 31, 2010
16.9 oz bottle served in a tulip. Pour is a dull, but shimmering gold with an inch of foamy white head on top. Nose is squash, light spice, dominant (but not overbearing) malt, and a light sweet honey. Taste is right on par ... the malt and squash jump the gun, then the honey and spice swagger in and last very pleasantly through the finish. This is a fantastic beer, let alone the best Oktoberfest I’ve ever tried, and I really wish I had a case of this stuff. I rated Paulaner high, but in hindsight, I could not give it the same rating after having this. This is my first beer from Ayinger and I hope the rest of their line-up is not disappointing. marv3mania (185) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 28, 2013
500 ml bottle. Pours a golden orange, perfect Oktoberfest color with a moderate off-white head. Aroma is Munich malts and German hops. Taste follows the nose. This is a light, easy to drink beer. It’s not the most interesting Oktoberfest I’ve tried, but it is the most well-crafted and probably the best overall. I like it. beerbaaron (1998) - Arizona, USA - SEP 29, 2013
Pours a clear medium golden amber with a large frothy white head, mostly lasting with lace. This looks like the quintessential beer. Aroma is lightly sweet and toasty, bready, caramel balanced by floral/earthy hops. Flavor is much the same, with the hops taking a little more of a role. Medium body. Great balance. Soft, just right sweetness and light bitterness and just a little dry on the finish. Very tasty and endlessly drinkable. This is beer. Im not going to ’low rate’ this like most because its not an imperial or barley wine, etc. Its a top notch, well-made, great beer.

Clear light amber pour with a hint of garnet. Massive head with excellent lacing and retention. The nose is sweet biscuit malt with a little caramel over a faint, almost citric, spiciness. Nice light medium body with a slick smooth texture that approaches creamy. Slightly above normal carbonation with a good bit of effervescence on the finish. The flavor profile is quite nice, a bit complex, and very well balanced. The sweet malt flavors are there, but not to the extent that they are overpowering. It begins with sweet biscuit, flows to a caramel note and then the effervescence cleans the palate and allows the complexity to escape. The middle presents a multitude of subtle flavors - citric, dark fruit, light bitterness and spicy hops. The smooth finish leaves you with a blend of the aforementioned flavors. andrewturba (1190) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 10, 2014
Pours a fairly clear copper with a large initial off white head that slowly settles into a nice thin but dense top and leaves great lace. Aroma is rich maltiness, melanoidins, toast. Flavour is rich maltiness/sweetness, melanoidins, bread crusts, mild noble hop like bitterness, fairly clean and a moderately dry finish. Great example of the style! ryrpat (372) - Illinois, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Probably the best Oktoberfest in the world. Light enough to have a few and such a classic smooth taste
