COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blue Point Octoberfest is another palate-pleasing seasonal brew. Originally brewed in 1810 to celebrate the betrothal of the Crown Prince of Bavaria, Blue Point continues the celebration by traditionally brewing this special malty amber lager every October. Octoberfest lager is stored cold for 2 months to ensure its distinct smooth flavor. Tap a pint and celebrate the season!

I actually thought this was a very good version of an Oktoberfest. It had considerable sweetness, some depth of flavor and was not overly toasty. Nothing wrong here at all.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5045) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2009
Sampled on draft at D’s in Monroeville PA this beer poured a bright amber color with a small white head that faded quickly. The aroma was tangy, tart and sour malts with just a touch of fruity hops. The flavor was nutty, sour and tangy with light fruity hops and a touch of caramel. The finish was short, bitter, nutty and dryish. Ok.

This poured an orange color with an off white head. Aroma was fairly bland but some munich and caramel malt, a bit sweet. Flavor was slightly sweet, a bit roasted, but not much else going on.

A decent Oktoberfest. Aroma was pretty good. Caramel, toast and toffee with an underlying lager smell. Pour was a nice dark gold/light brown with a thin off white ring for a head. Taste was decent in the beginning. Caramel and toffee in the front but the aftertaste got sour and had the nasty lager byproduct that I don’t remember the name of but happens while it ferments. Could be good without that aftertaste.

Draft. Pours copper amber with an off white head. Toasty malt aroma, with toffee, grain, and a light buttery hint. The flavor has toasty sweet malt, toffee, and grain. Decent.

Birdiebeagle (958) - Perkasie, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2009
Bottle Pours a clear amber with a good off white head. The head is frothy and deminishing. It produces spotty lacing. Aroma is of grain and bread. Has an okay carbonation. The flavor starts of with heavy grain but settles into and anice flavorful beer with touches malt and light spice. Has a medium body. A watery texture. The finish is good and has a good aftertaste. This beer needs to settle a bit to rid you of the graininess but when it does it is very drinkable and good.

MrChopin (3428) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 10, 2009
Red-amber with a short-lived white head. Nose is grainy with main contribution from bready malt, a little of the distinctive swill notes. Flavor is quite a step up, building on the sweet honey/grain flavor with some nice malt that follows through to a long, sweet finish. Exceeded expectations.

As far as this style is concerned this is a really good example. Very malty in flavor with a bread like aroma. Nice copper color. Good.

beerbill (3509) - Laurel, New York, USA - NOV 26, 2008
12 oz. bottle. Looks like this is the third 3 rating a row! Pours a clear medium gold with a moderate linen white head that lasted through the first third of the glass and left partial lace. Very light aroma of malt and an ever-so-slight metallic smell. The flavor is again light malt but with no sign of the metallic notes in the aroma. Dull, lackluster finish. Mediocre.

12oz. Bottle: Aroma of malts, bread, sourdough, caramel, and grains. Poured amber in color with a medium-sized, dense, off-white head that lasted throughout. Clear. Lightly sparkling. Flavor is lightly sweet. Tastes of malts, grains, honey, caramel, corn, and dough. Light to medium body. Thin, oily texture. Average carbonation. Sweet, grainy, caramel finish.
