Three more on the list

Let's expand the list of Oktoberfest beers. Sadly, none of these was knock your socks off good. I had high hopes for the Sam Adams and Ayinger but they came up short. I am looking forward to trying the Bells Oktoberfest soon. Also will try the Schells, Becks, and Summit if I can still find them.

Samuel Adams Octoberfest- I believe this beer won an award at the Great American Beer Festival last month. I am not sure why. I thought it was average. It had good taste, color, and aroma, but it seemed thin to me. If it had a bit more body, it would have been great.

Ayingner Oktober Fest Marzen - Similiar to the Sam Adams, this one was on the thin side. Maybe my hopes were too high for this German import. Good flavor but a bit light. It also could have been a bit maltier for my palate.

Hofbrau Oktoberfestbier- I am not sure this is even a Marzen. It was light and lacked the malty taste. I would drink this again but not when I am looking for a good Oktoberfest beer.

Best of 2011 is still the New Glarus Staghorn.

God damn that is good! Get me another!
Flying Dog Dogtoberfest
Tyranena Gemutlichkeit
Lakefront Oktoberfest

Good to drink if they don't have anything else.
Great Lakes Oktoberfest

Ayinger Oktober Fest Marzen

I think I'll have a Miller Lite instead.
