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.

Golden amber color with a sturdy, off-white head. Nice rings of lace remain on the glass. Malty nose is complemented by some sweetness, mild hops and bread dough. Taste is superbly balanced. Sweet, caramel maltiness and a fine, earthy hop finish pleases the palate. This brew is medium-bodied and fills the mouth quite appropriately. Extremely drinkable. Great Festbier.
