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 a brownish copper color with a finger of white foam. The nose is doughy malt, toasted wheat and a touch of tea and grass. The palate follows the nose and is round and malty without being overbearing. Nice refreshing carbonation, crusty bread and a bitter grassy finish.

As far as an Octoberfest marzen, it's nothing exceptional. Pours a nice amber with a medium head. Aroma is roasted toffee with coffee and caramel. Finishes clean, not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle thanks to Keir. Poured a crystal clear super dark burnt orange body with an ample long lasting frothy super light beige head. Aroma of wet toast, malts, spice, seedless rye bread and citrus. Medium to slightly fuller body with stronger carbonation and an average duration on the aftertaste which is a bit spicy. Flavor of artisinal breads, spice, rye, carroway, older citrus and bark. Solid beer that grew on me.

AirForceHops (4804) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 11, 2013
12 oz. bottle courtesy of queenholly. Mostly clear orange amber pour with lasting white head in a dimpled mug. Nose is light toasted malt and toffee. Flavor has grain, caramel, honey, and a light hop bitterness. Rather traditional take and has a nice body and texture. Tasty and very drinkable. Nice

scotchzombie (438) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - OCT 8, 2013
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

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.
