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.

Small off white head that dissipates evenly leaving behind some spotty lacing. Clear amber colored brew. Malty nose though a bit of hop spiceyness is evident. Medium body, lightly creamy. Bready and sweet malts, faint roast notes with a light toastiness. Very drinkable lager, probaby the beast lager I’ve had in a long while. To bad you can’t get this stuff all the time.

UPDATED: NOV 6, 2007 Bottle... Crystal clear, deep amber lager with a small, creamy, white head. Light cirrus lacing. The aroma is of toffee and overripe apple. Well-balanced flavor is crisp and lightly bitter with notes of apple, toffee and butterscotch. Medium-bodied with a lightly creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Short, crisp, lightly bitter finish.

Small white head that dissipates quickly leaving behind some spotty lacing. Clear amber colored brew. Malt dominated nose though a bit of hop spiceyness is evident. Medium body, lightly creamy. Bready and sweet malts, faint roast notes with a light toastiness. Mild hops in the background. Finish is medium dry with a lingering maltiness on the palate. Thanks Eric!

Very, very good Seasonal Beer from this growing Brewery. Copper to Amber color with a distinct flavor to it. Recommended for Grilling Brats out on a cool Fall day and enjoying on the backyard deck with Friends. Worth the purchase on this one.

Copper/Amber with a white head. No real distinct aromas. Some malt and hops in the aroma, but not prominent. This is a very malty, smooth, almost creamy beer. The mouthful is great, and the taste is something sweet with malts that leave a film in your mouth.

Had this with dinner at one of local watering holes. Been off the site for a while. Work, work, work. Very nice but not great. Good flavor, full bodied taste. Didn’t taste at all like a Octoberfest beer. to me.

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2005 Pours with minimal head, great Oktoberfest. Bubbly copper presence with a sweet aroma with noticeable yeasts and malts. Taste is quite complex! Sweet aftertaste amidst swirling bright fruits and saccharine caramels. This is a great little lager, just wish there was more of it year-round!

Wow this is a good lager!! Poured copper with a nice white head that looked great in a lager glass. The aroma was very slight but pleasant, and reminded me opf my wife baking sugar cookies. Fresh bread flavor that drinks really easily, with a palate just right for the style.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUL 28, 2004
In the bottle at the 2004 Crescent Moon Vintage Beer Tasting. Very reddish amber in color. Quite malty with a good palate. Not bad for the fact that this had quite a bit of age on it (possibly from the late 90’s).

Appearance: clear bronze in color, with a short, filmy head. Aroma: dry, clean, arid, but as it unfolds, showing off more malt, sweetness, spice, though still on the delicate side. Taste: light hops, full, hearty malt presence. Light in body, but tastily textured. mmmm, I kept on thinking, mmm! My notes fall short on technical aspects, I readily admit, but to sum it up, it’s an unusual and richly flavored, highly drinkable lager that can be consumed with extraordinary ease and still provide ample pleasure through the abundance of flavor.
