COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blue Point Octoberfest is another palate-pleasing seasonal brew.

Pre-release sample from BP. This light orange to gold beer looked great as we poured this into tasting glasses. This lightly spiced beer reminded me of a wheat or wiezen style as its slight sudsy head seemed to have milky texture. I found this very enjoyable to drink and I hope to see this on tap too.

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.

This beer grew on me more and more as I drank it..Very drinkable. Good malt flavor, not overpowering hops. Very even palate. Could drink these all night.

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2010 Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a mug. There appears to be no freshness date on the label. Appearance: 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. Smell: 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. Taste/Palate: 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. Notes: The head retention was a bit of a let down for me but it was still a tasty Oktoberfest style beer. It was a little bit lighter in color and body than most but it was very drinkable.

12oz t.o. bottle. Deep amber color. Thin white ring. Malt nose, toasted grains, vanilla oak. Sweet flavor. Toasted malts, white oak, vanilla, buttered toast. Light finish. Well balanced, nicely lagered. Very light hop character, lends to style very well. (3831)

Smells somewhat yeasty, crisp and very inviting. Mild sweetness predominates, and it is a well-balanced, fall beer. Beautiful amber color, nice frothy head, but it doesn't last all that long. Something very caramel about this.

UPDATED: OCT 11, 2008 Amber pour, thin head, hints of grain and fruit, just enough hops for balance. An Oktoberfest I will be enjoying again.
