I'll admit, Oktoberfest is one style of beer that I just don't get. For me in flavor, texture, and gusto It lies somewhere between an unfiltered wheat beer and a sweetish pale ale.

And I've sampled this oktober beer and that oktober beer over the years and just never found one that I'm really interested in trying again. On the other hand, I find them inoffensive, really kind of blah.

So anyway I get excited when I see the Ayinger Oktober Fest-Marzen bottle just arrived on the shelf... a 100% style rated brew by ratebeer, about as good and classic as an Oktoberfest can be...

So I'm sippin' this, it's alright but I'm missing the edge of bigger beers.

Does anyone really crave this style? If so, which brews?
