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!

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.

Cybercat (4288) - Georgia, USA - SEP 22, 2012
Aroma is strong and malty with fruity and earthy underpinnings. Pours a clear, orangy amber with a fairly thick pale wheat head that leaves generous lacing. Lip-smacking flavor has a malty core and firm tones of cloves, fruit and honey. Smooth texture has average body and fizz. Happy Autumnal Equinox - in the northern hemisphere, anyway.

Bierkrug (2130) - - SEP 22, 2012
355 ML bottle in New York from The Beer Store in Monticello. Pours a clear amber with a little white head. Aroma is sweet malt with some light spices. Mildly sweet/clove beginning with some light hops in the palate. All in all much like the lager they make.Average but nice.

Onslow (1301) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - SEP 21, 2012
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Amber brew with off white head that soon settles. Clear. Aroma of malt with vegetal overtones. Taste is lagerish, sweet, with a little malt. Light hops in the finish but still ends a little sweet. Overall - a nice light brew, nice example of the style.

Hangover (1094) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - SEP 18, 2012
Orange pour with a frothy white head. Aroma has some vegetable, bread and faint metallic notes. Nice carbonation. Flavor is actually pretty malty, with medium sweetness and a lingering vegetable aftertaste. Bitter finish. Middle of the road for a fest beer but not bad.

This was on my favorite beers at the Blue Point tasting I attended. With a spicy aroma and taste, this is a very nice beer for the fall.

rlgk (15333) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 10, 2012
Draught at Rattle&Hum, NYC. Malty, fruity, bready aroma, sicy, biscuits, apples and pears, hop notes, some grass. Malty caramel flavor, banana, pear, hay, some pepper. Bitter finish, spicy and with some citrus. Thin bodied and a bit boring.
