Ayinger Oktober Fest was a copper toned beer. The head was really light and fluffy, like soap suds. It smelled like metal, so I was pretty put off at first, but the taste was free of that rusty flavor we all hate so much.
Very hopsy and bitter, but drinkable. Also there was a lot of it.
6/10.
I love October.

Ayinger Oktober Fest-Marzen was a nice gold color with a thick head. The head hangs around for a little bit, but not too long. There are many tiny bubbles rushing to the surface. The taste has a sharpness to it, but it's not terrible. The aftertaste is mild and doesn't last too long. I rate this beer as a Finisher. It's an alright beer, but I don't think I would order another one.
