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.

HuskerTan (1160) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - JAN 2, 2015
Bottle. A- Malty, spice, wheat. A- Pale orange color, clear liquid, off white head. T- Malty, spice, slightly woody.. P- Light body, average texture, medium carbonation, malty finish. O- This was a little past the best by date but I still did’t expect it to be this bland and unbalanced. Just tasted really malty and not a lot of anything else. Very disappointing. Better as it warms.

ajnepple (4074) - Colorado, USA - DEC 11, 2014
12 oz single bottle into a pint glass, purchased yesterday, best by 11/26/14, WTF Tipsy’s? Burnt orange, light amber and clear appearance with a white head and light lacing. Aroma of Munich malts, light noble hops, toffee, bread, toasted grains and light caramel. The flavor is malt forward and moderately sweet with a light spicy hop bitterness coming through in the finish. Pretty solid oktoberfest bier, even after the best by date.

chinchill (3354) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 30, 2014
12 oz bottle with a BB date stamp of Dec. 2014. A bit bland, even for a Marzen, this beer manages to have crisp, lively carbonation with a head that’s a bit weak for style. Light aroma and flavor is even a tad light for style, although not the hop level. Nearly as sweet as it is bitter.

Very solid marzen. Smells slightly like caramel with a nice amber color. Taste is good with very little bitterness and after taste.

Golden orange and clear. Aroma is bready and toasty malt. Taste is bready, toasty, with a slight hint of caramel and raisin. Mouthfeel is medium with light to moderate carbonation. Finishes with lingering maltiness with hints of raisin

Lutz2jm (210) - North Carolina, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Pours golden orange with no head. Aromas of grapes and cartelized sugar. Taste is malty with some notes of grapes. A large amount of carbonation for a beer with not residual head. Ok at best.

slowrunner77 (7873) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 22, 2014
great example of the style, and up there with the better American versions. rich and malty, caramel, bread and toffee greet the nose and palate. finishes dry and sweet.

beernbourbon (1426) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Bottle. Pour is Clear light copper with a small soapy white head. Aroma is sugary toasted malt with light hay and yeast. Flavor is sweet with lightly toasted malt and a faintly hoppy finish. Lightly floral. The yeasty finish that usually turns me off to this style is absent, but still really sweet for the abv. I like this more than most marzen but still not at the top of my list. It grew on me slowly.

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