love most everything ayinger... pours a dark straw color. wary of ANYTHING of a straw color, though.... but a decent head.
lighter smell than expecting....sweet, caramel-y malt aroma.
taste is of the same. more lager-y than oktoberfest-y to me. the sweet malts make this seem less of a 'seasonal' than a regular, such as the other german perennials...
overall, typical ayinger.... commercial, but very nice tasting and average 5- 5.8% abv. except for the celebrator, of course. great session beers, normally. straight 80's in my opinion...

Appearance: Pours a clear copper with a creamy, fluffy, off-white head that thins to a shiny half-inch layer, which remains throughout most of the beer.

Smell: Predominantly malty in the nose. There are bready, caramel and toffee notes, as well as a hint of fruitiness and a light leafy hop aroma.

Taste: Strong toasty and bready malt flavors are evident upfront. There's a light fruity sweetness in the center that fades to a nice leafy hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Light-bodied, moderate carbonation, with a nice, lightly dry finish.

Drinkability: Light and easy to drink, but very flavorful.

Overall: A nicely done Oktoberfest, a perfect match for the cooling temperatures.

This beer pours a brown amber color. Clear. Decent off white light foam. Smell is of mild German hops, very mild. Flavor is pretty good. Lots of delicious malt. Darker malt... not quite roasted but getting very close. Firm bitterness keeps this a fairly dry beer. Medium body. Smooth.

Overall: I tasted 3 OFests one per day, three days in a row, and this was the best. It was the least sweet and had the most malt flavor

T: sweet corn, malt, earthy, crisp finish

M: med/light body, solid carbonation, slight
prick on tongue, semi-dry mouth

this and will have it again. Flavorful, but
also could down quite a few. Get your

imported gem.

A: Bright copper orange with nice two finger head that fades to a nice thin layer on the surface.

S: Malt, yeast, bread, and some sweet subtle hints of caramel.

T: Nice malt up front and some sweet carmel notes. Finished with the classic octoberfest taste.

M: Nice carbonation and leaves a bit of a sweet taste.

O: Thought is was a good ocktoberfest. Great seasonal beer and would like to try it again.
