Could not agree more with this statement. And really, isn't this true about all beers? Not everyone likes the same thing, which I think is great, as the result is that we have all kinds of different styles and takes on various styles. To get back to the Weihenstephan festbier, I thought it a pleasant, albeit somewhat light and simple, take on the style. Good, but not typically what I'm looking for when I reach for an Oktoberfest beer. I'll also readily agree that the beer tends not to show all that well when poured alongside a rich marzen from, say, Ayinger or Hacker-pschorr.
