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.

Lagers are often so bland and predictable, but here is a refreshing alternative. Spicy, malty, dark and luscious Bob's 47 sets new standards for the breed. Lasting head, dark copper tone, sweet smooth mellow malt and a kiss of hops make this brew number one on the charts. Hats of to Boulevard and this fine tribute beer. May Bob Werkowitch rest in peace.

A truly nice lager, but something is missing. Aroma is light, taste is lacking even the slightest amount of hops. Easy to drink, but once it is gone, I am not upset.

Faint aroma. Body is malty sweet, with a slight bitterness. Very smooth. Leaves you wishing you had another bottle.

An impressive lager by Boulevard. Isn't this an Oktoberfest/Marzen? In any event, pours clear copper, with a thin off-white head. Aroma was very light but sweet. Flavor is rich and malty, with caramel and fruit competing with floral hops accents. Drinking this lager makes it easy to identify, by comparison, poorly done lagers (especially several recent Oktoberfests).

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2011 Bottle-2003 A great lager-now i know what everybody is raving about. nice copper color-palate was very fizzy-dancing bubbles on the toungue-nice spicy hops-a tad of piney hops also-a fine lager Rerate 2011 I think this beer has changed for,the worse very watery feel with some plastic medicinal qualities,to the malt bill. Hmmm im not that impressed

Bright copper color, nice little white head. Aroma was toffee and some spice. Good, clean malt flavor, caramel notes, and a cleansing bitterness at the end. Balanced, nicely done beer, thanks Indra!

TAR (2445) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - SEP 29, 2003
Faded clear rufous. Compact, short-lived bubbles. Bold aroma of toasted bread, musty malt sack, and caramel amid tropical fruit-like esters. Somewhat tangy with hints of apple, dried banana, and mineral. Soft mouthfeel. Tight carbonation. Extremely balanced collaboration of spicy hops and tangy malts fade into a stylish blend of hazelnut, powdery malts, and tropical fruit. Zippy finish of burnt sugar and rounded fruit notes, lending brightness to the malts. Malts get the best of the hops in the ending. A bottle-conditioned dark lager that’ll satisfy the malthead in you while temporarily easing your noble hop yearning. Very nicely done.

This beer looked like another Oktoberfest when I first poured it. The head was moderate and creamy with wispy lacing, and it had a strawberry and toasty malt aroma. Brisk on the tongue, with a fresh malty flavor and respectable hop presence, I could drink this all day long. Medium finish on the dry side. Good job Boulevard!

amber color, very thin white head. lots of doughy malt in that aroma...very classic high-quality lager. mostly malty sweet flavor, but there are definitely some hops in the finish...quite a good lager.
