Ayinger Oktoberfest

Family Amber Lager Style Oktoberfest
Country Germany ABV 5.6%
Price $$$ Packaging 16.9oz/500ml bottle
Characteristics Malty

Overview Official Oktoberfest celebrations are limited exclusively to the seven Munich breweries, so this Fest-style brew won’t be seen there—the town of Aying sits some 15 miles outside Munich city limits. Foreigners.

Flavors and aromas Tasters delighted at the abundant and complex malt character of this Oktoberfest beer. Ample fruity Munich malt does most of the driving, giving a fresh, almost sweet character that one identified as “juicy.” There’s soft bitterness to balance here, and the overall impression is of a deeply drinkable, full and round beer with a clean character. Don’t drink this too cold, though, or you’ll miss the excitement.
