Ayinger Oktober Fest-Marzen -- Twitter Steve Guest Post

Today, I have a guest reviewer that I met on Twitter. He's a local South Florida dude that I'll call Steve. Why Steve? Well, because that's his name, but also because I am not able to speak or type his Twitter name. It even burns my retinas. Being #FollowFriday, go check him out

What else do you need to know? I know it's hard to believe, but yeah, there are still Mets fans, and Steve is one of them. Pfft. He does much better when it comes to watching the Food Network programs, though. Oh, and as you can see to your left, a professional photographer!

I believe the reason Steve chose today's beer is because he likes his beers like his automobiles: foreign. Or some crap like that, just paraphrasing. LOL. Here you go...

Ayinger Oktober Fest-Marzen

Let me preface this review by stating that I am not the everyday beer drinker nor do I experiment with many different labels. My favorite beers are Beck’s and St. Pauli Girl. Well on stopping at the local liquor store to buy a gift for someone I decided to grab a little something to wet my whistle with and possibly review. I choose Ayinger Oktober Fest-Marzen simply because it was the last bottle left so I thought it had to be good, right? Well upon getting home I popped the bottle and poured myself out a nice sample size. The color is a light amber, normal of lagers. As I go for the first taste, I notice a distinct caramel aroma which is very inviting. The taste is very similar to Beck’s but with more density. If Beck’s had a top shelf version, this would be it. I’m definitely digging this beer and would recommend it especially if you are a German lager fan and are looking to have one or two really good quality beers instead of a whole six pack.

Hey, I'm a Mets fan. But I'm pulling for the Giants in the Series, with this beer suggestion to go along with it:

I certainly endorse the Ayinger, however. I made it my lead beer in a Perfect Beers for Fall 9-pack (, but it's interesting to see that Fall is pretty much over as far as some stores are concerned. The holiday and winter beers are rolling in already.

Hey Tom. Yeah I remember this one hitting your Fall lineup article. That was coincidence as this was Steve's review.

Pretty amazing that you found the other Met fan, too. LOL.

Talk to you later.
