COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bob’s ’47 Oktoberfest is a medium-bodied, dark amber brew with a malty flavor and well-balanced hop character. With this Munich-style lager we salute our friend Bob Werkowitch, Master Brewer and 1947 graduate of the U.S. Brewer‘s Academy.

Probably my favorite marzen year in and year out. Well rounded, malty and amber. Such a beautiful oktoberfest.

Beachmaster (131) - Oklahoma, USA - SEP 27, 2014
12 oz. bottle into a pint glass. Pours a clear amber/orange, with a moderate white head which quickly fades. No lacing. Not much on the nose, faint aroma of malt. Taste is OK, typical for the style. An average Oktoberfest.

Bif (1456) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 26, 2014
On tap. Served a dark amber color with a decent head and fair lacing. Aroma of malt, bit of fruit and hops in the background. Taste of malt, some caramel and fruit sweetness. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Moderate body, smooth with a light malty feel. Decent beer for the style.

On tap at Hops and Pie poured a clear orange amber with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of caramel, toasted malt and a hint of fruitiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a smooth dry finish. Flavors of caramel, toasted malt and a hint of fruitiness with a smooth dry lingering caramel finish.

355ml bottle. Lighter amber for an oktoberest, foamy white head. Aroma is salty pretzel and sharp noble hops, bit of biscuit. Flavor is spicy and malty, some nuttiness, heavily entrenched int he american style of maerzens.

Drjohnrock (431) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 18, 2014
Twelve ounce bottle from mix six pack purchased at Whitey’s Wine and Liquor, Lawrenceburg, Indiana, tasted on September 28, 2013. Medium orange color, medium toasted malt nose, mostly bitter taste with some astringency and chemical notes, not enough sweet toasted malt flavor. I expect better from Boulevard.

hotstuff (4101) - Indiana, USA - APR 14, 2014
Rated on 11-13-2011. When poured, this beer has a small ivory head that mostly diminishes, transparent body, fast rising carbonation, and virtually no lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, hops and fruity. The taste is lightly bitter, caramel malt, lightly hoppy, and lightly fruity. The mouthfeel is lively but yet soft and this beer is medium bodied. This beer is just so-so tasting. It is not a bad beer per se. It just lacks character and wow factor.

bottle. Deep amber with small head. Medium caramel malt, light hops. Pretty standard Oktoberfest, solid.

Clear amber pour, tan head. Nose is caramel malt. More sweet than bitter, decent balance. Middle is medium body, lots of toasted grain. Finish is malty with a hint of hops. Decent.
