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.

BBB63 (6473) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAY 27, 2004
Amber hue with fading off-white head and some lace. The aroma hints of roasted caramel malts, cookie dough, aromatic and herbal hops, ripe pear, and dusty yeast esters. The initial taste is malt covered by an acidic overtone. Earthy and very bitter upon the finish. The mouthfeel is lively yet soft, metallic and chalky finish. This beer lacks a the crispness I want in a lager, therefore it doesn’t grab you. If want a good lager, go visit the Dortmunder/Helles style, that's where they all went!

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 1, 2004
12 oz bottle, snifter. Lots of cookies and caramel in the aroma. Very clean. Dark amber body with a nice off-white head. Lightly sweet flavor becomes a lightly sweet, lightly bitter finish. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. The bottom line is: [lame] tasty! [/lame]

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 1, 2004
Bright amber-copper color, nice white foamy head that leaves a nice lacing in the glass. Has burnt roasted, malty caramel aromas, sweet and roasty malt flavors, medium bodied with a full and rounded mouthfeel, finishes clean with a nice sweetness. A pretty good fall brew, definitely worth a try.

Coppermonk (2) - Mission, Kansas, USA - JAN 21, 2004 does not count
I believe it is the lager yeast in this one that sets me on fire. I am so used to ales, but this one knocked me on my backside. Filled with flavor, this would be a nice offering year-round. Seems to age well in the fridge, I'll buy a little more next year.

cquiroga (371) - Tujunga, California, USA - JAN 6, 2004
12/3/03. Poured out of 12 oz. bottle, obtained in a trade with Indra on RateBeer 11/18/03. Light amber color. Pale malt nose, not much. White fluffy head dissipates. Light malt and hops on a medium body. Nice texture but not much flavor going on. Finish is smooth but short, not too exciting. Very surprised to see this one score so high with the gallery. I found it pretty mediocre all-around.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2005 Bright, copper body with high carbonation and a sudsy white head that faded away. Buttery toasted malt aroma and a hint of hay. Fresh, moderately sweet nutty malt flavor with a touch of spicy herbs. Some tartness in the finish. This is a tasty refreshing lager and another solid Boulevard beer.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 31, 2003
Orange-amber pour with a thin head of small white bubbles. Buttery malt aromas, some citrus and hops. Floral hops stand out the most in the flavor. Caramel is present as well. Followed by some malt and a bitter finish. Creamy palate and a medium body.
