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!

Pours a deep golden amber. Aroma of sugar drenched hay. Taste is very sweet. Almost like grape juice. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

superspak (3615) - Michigan, USA - OCT 9, 2012
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled 7/30/2012. Pours lightly hazy golden orange color with a nice 2 finger dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice foamy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of pear, apple, caramel, biscuit, toast, grass, herbal, and light earth. Very nice aromas with good strength and balance. Taste of caramel, pear, apple, toast, biscuit, grass, herbal, and light spiciness. Lingering notes of caramel, light fruits, toast, biscuit, and herbal on the finish for a bit. Nice balance of all flavors with no cloying sweetness at all. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy and slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Oktoberfest! Spot on style flavor profile with great balance; extremely smooth to drink. Really enjoyable and true to style all the way.

eelbasher (285) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 8, 2012
12oz bottle,twist off cap. Pours a deep golden/amber with a nice foamy white head. Aromas of toasted bread, caramel, yeast, skunky funk, and some herbal notes. Flavor is well balanced and damn drinkable. Bready caramel malts, fruit, tea, and a clean finish. Leaves the palate wet and wanting more. Nice

jhliesen (786) - West Melbourne, Florida, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle from a six pack--light amber color, almost a deep straw color with a fast, disappearing head. Aroma is malty with some roasted nuts. I’m not sure why, but it reminds me of our local German/Austrian restaurant. Toasted nuts and caramel are the main components of the taste. A touch of bitterness on the finish to add to the malty caramel. Lovely stuff, Blue Point, keep up the good work! Produce place.

Some candy corn in the taste. Sweet, no breadiness really, tastes pretty damn shitty.

Medium head and a clear, amber appearance. Spicy and sweet, there is a bit of orange and nutmeg in the taste.

tcane7 (1670) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2012
Bottle in the office. Pours clean, light amber with thick cream colored head. Sweet hay, pilsen malt, faint bitterness on the finish...butter crumbles.

Pours a very dark gold with a strong, three finger head that leaves a good amount of lacing on the glass. Deep malt notes in the aroma with some roastyness as well. Moderate amount of carbonation, just enough not to interfere with the taste. Just enough bittering hops to balance the malt. The only thing I am missing is the strong caramel notes that are present in some of the German marzens.

Malty nutty aromas. Typical fest beer flavors. Finishes with a little metallic tinge. Overall a decent fest beer.
