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!

JoeMcPhee (8313) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 17, 2006
64 oz growler. Amber colur with some thin white head. Aroma shows thin maltiness and some of the same metallic/acrid smoky character that I find in several of their seasonal products of late. A bit of caramel and some appley notes. Flavour is thin-bodied, some toast and astringent hop bitterness. Pretty poor really.
