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!

puboflyons (3100) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 4, 2014
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Medium amber-orange pour and a short lasting white head. A touch of toasted grain in the nose with clean hops but nothing that makes this stand apart from any other Octoberfest. Medium body. The taste is pretty ordinary. Toasted malts, sweet, mild bitter finish. But overall this is an average beer and there are so many better beers in this style out there.

Beerathon (1683) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2014
Golden/brown with a think head and some lacing. Caramel and toffee in the flavor and nose. Tastes like your typical Oktoberfest. It’s easy drinking.

ryanscourt (1362) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 25, 2014
Lighter than most of the marzens. Flavors a little more subdued than others as well. Sweetness is too bad.

spokeydonkey (84) - Albany, New York, USA - SEP 9, 2014
A dark gold/light copper beer with a moderate head that fades quickly. Smells of butterscotch. Sweet butterscotch/caramel flavor fades into toasty bitterness at the end.

Calisky (2492) - ALSACE, FRANCE - SEP 5, 2014
Couleur ambrée, bonne mousse blanche. Nez malté, céréales. Gout malté doux, note foin et petite amertume. Pas trop mal pour une oktoberfest.

BLADT (698) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle pour. Clean orange with small white head. Limited lacing. Not much nose. Some corn-esque sweetness on warming. Taste is on the thin side. Decent malt, though watery. Eh

micronaut129 (241) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Golden straw in color. A really, really big foam head with really nice carbonation. Good lacing around glass. Sweet toffee malt aroma with a slightly spicy hop bouquet. A sweet toffee caramel malt taste with just a little bit of roastiness. I also taste butterscotch. Biscuit finish. Hops are present but just for bittering and balance, I don’t really pick up any hop character. I deem this beer good tasting and would enjoy a few more but, alas, I have not.

The body has a deep golden to light amber color with very good clarity and lots of carbonation. Its head is just off white in color and fades down quickly to just a wispy thin layer which makes very little lacing. In the nose there are notes of pale light malt, biscuits and a very light touch of herbal/floral hops. There is also a light sweetness and something that reminds me of smartlys candy. It has a base of light roasted malt, grain and some biscuity flavors with mild sweetness. Hop flavor is light, mostly floral with some leafy and citrus notes on the finish. The finish also has the mildly sweet malt turning dry and crisp with more of a raw grain and husk character. The body has a light to medium feel and its carbonation is quite lively and a bit fizzy on the palate.
