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.

Pours clear amber orange brown with a fluffy off-white (tan) head that fades slowly. Aroma is breads, malt, caramel, but not super sweet. Quite carbonated and fizzy on the tongue. Malty flavors with less sweetness than say the Spaten 'fest. Darkfruit (prune) and apple. Some bitterness on the back. A very nice example of the style with more depth than most. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

October 7, 2013 - on tap at Boulevard airport location. Little bit of spice and malt in aroma and taste.

12 ounce bottle. Crackers, brown sugar and malt-o-meal aroma. The smell was my favorite part of it. Dark orange liquid, practically no foam, low amount of lacing. Sweet and malty flavor with some dark fruits, raisins, dates, and apple sauce. Medium bodied and a little flat on the palate. Good for the style, very drinkable.

Pretty good version of an oktberfest. Aroma is pretty heavy caramel. Taste is heavy but not overly powerful.

I love the fall/winter seasonal beers! So many great, hearty beers and Boulevard presents with another winner. A bit malty with hints of caramel. Grab it while you can!

12 oz bottle pours a light brown color with a small white head. Aromas of malt, caramel, doughy. Light bodied, good first Oktoberfest of the year

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent light copperish orange with off-white lacing. Smells doughy and malty with notes of caramel. Tastes like it smells with a fairly sweet backbone and an average mouthfeel. Decent, but forgettable.

Bottle. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a smallish white head on it. Nose is light and malty, with a little caramel and bread coming through for me. Taste is a little sweet on the back end, but still pretty well balanced to make for an easy drink. OK, but nothing great.

This brew smells like dough yeast and caramel and bread malts when poured, and the color is a clear orange with a hint of brown as well as a huge white head. The taste is mildly sour, slightly sweet, and slightly umami, but the body is perfection in your mouth due to the superb blend of medium body, soft carbonation, sweet yet malty finish, and the texture that is somewhere between slick and creamy.
