Default Favorite Octoberfest

Title pretty much says it all. Starting to get into Octoberfests and just trying to get a starting point for good/great. Thanks!

I had Stoudt's Oktoberfest last night. Wow, really great. Probably my favorite to date.

Ayinger, Paulaner, and Sam Adams are my three favorite commercial varieties that I've tried. Didn't care for Spaten or Hacker-Schorr (sp?) when I had them - drinkable but nothing special IMO. The BCS recipe is a winner and have bottles of the others I haven't touched due to me liking my own so much.

Weihenstephaner, hands down. It's not quite as hard on the sweet as the others are, but it is fine, fine beer.

I just had Abita Fall Fest (Octoberfest) a week ago and think it is my favorite. It slightly sweet up front with a very balanced finished and has clean, full, nuanced malt character.

Weihenstephaner is good, but I like Paulaner better. A few years ago, I got a couple cases of Erdinger Oktoberfest. It was amazing.

I can't find a description in BJCP. What should I be looking for in characteristics?

The New Glarus Staghorn is really good, and I just had Millstream's Octoberfest, which was excellent. The Millstream might be a little heavy for the style, but it's quite good.
