A: Pours a crystal clear light copper color with a very large foamy head on top. Decent retention, slowly dissipating a small, but still foamy layer on top. Sporadic, but sticky lacing down the sides.

S: Nice combination of caramel, bread, and nutty aromas. Lightly spiced and a little bit of pale malt as well. Slight oxidized aroma at the end.

T: Nice caramelized malt and nutty flavor combination. Slight spice and hop presence, but just enough to balance the beer. Rather bready with a sweet finish.

M: Crisp and clean, medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Slightly sweet finish.

O: Solid beer, like it quite a bit in a style that doesn't often do it for me.

Picked up a 500ml from Byerly's in Maple Grove. Pours a clear amber-gold with a white head. Man I wish Ayinger beer were more readily available/cheaper.

This is a great O-fest, rich with bready caramel malts with a smooth, oh-so drinkable body. It is a touch thicker than other in the style, Spaten comes to mind as a thinner beer, but man it's good. The flavor has subtle layers of malt with a touch of crisp light toffee, with an aroma to match. I'll be looking forward to having this again next fall.

Clear, coppery orange color with a white head.
Nice aroma of caramel malt and fruity hops.

Taste is pretty clean. Toasty pale malts with some caramel character. Fruity. Hops to balance. Earthy and citrusy notes. Finishes slightly dry.

Good mouthfeel.
Very drinkable.

Overall, a good oktoberfest that's nicely balanced.
