I want to like the various beer from Ayinger, but time and again they tend to underwhelm. Everything is done right I just don't get excited about it. The exception to the rule is their mighty "Celebrator" which I find to be one of the finest beers ever made, but that is a different entry. which leads me to their Oktober Fest-Marzen. There is nothing special here. It is a less than interesting octoberfest. Yet, it is fairly refreshing and only slightly sweet with mild bitterness. Carbonation is low with virtually no head and has an almost oily finish to the mouth. For that reason alone it is very drinkable, but also lacks any zing. However, it does have a decent fruity malty aroma and appropriate deep golden color for the style. Once again they did what was expected to make this beer properly and that is about it. Would I drink it again? Of course. I just wouldn't be excited about it.
