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.

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.

Excellent American take on the Oktoberfest. This one has a beautiful dark amber color and a flavor and aroma that reflect toasted malts. The hops add spiciness to the sugary alcohol taste. A phenomenal tribute to a master brewer.

Beautiful amber color, aroma is malt and hops, taste a little hops and very malty. Excellent, far better than Sam Adams, prefer to the German ones I've tried. My personal favorite Oktoberfest. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

beastiefan2k (3371) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - DEC 7, 2013
12oz bottle poured into a Blvd Tulip. Pours a pretty hue: amber brown with a faint rose hue. Small tight head fades into a small lacing. Clear beer with a bit of carbonation right in the middle. Pretty color. Aroma is bready and toasted lagered malts. Clean with no off flavor, beautiful. Just a little bit of a fruity hop aroma, not bitter. Flavor is great with sweet malts, not sugary, not even caramel but sort of toasted caramel light. Just a nice light fruit and bitter hop finish. Beautifully, clean and full of flavor. Great Vienna, not O’fest.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours amber in color with off white head. Taste Carmel, sweet, fruity. I thought this was good. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Bottle: Poured a clear brown with a huge off white beige head. Aroma is sweet malts. Taste is nice fresh grain and malts.
