The brewmasters at Ayinger must have a similar taste in beer to my own. Their Celebrator Double Bock is one of my favorite beers, and I really enjoy their Brau Weisse. It's not a surprise that Ayginer Octoberfest is a beer I really enjoyed as well.
This Marzen style beer is an orangey brown in color, with a finger-thick head that lasts a bit, and leaves behind a lot of lacing. I couldn't pick up any signficant aroma.
The flavor starts off sweet and very malty, with a touch of roasted grain. It's balanced with just a tiny touch of hops. Overall, a very enjoyable beer that's easy to drink... and one I definitely recommend.
Beer Advocate rates it a 91/100 or "exceptional". Interestingly it's the beer pictured on Wikipedia for the Marzen style!
I tried this at The Winking Lizard Tavern on Bethel Road, but have seen it at Kenny Road Market and other retailers.
My rating: 9/10
