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.

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.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2012 2004, fresh, first week on the shelves - this is really when you have to try this. If you’re rating this beer from November to August, it’s not going to measure up. Golden bright copper appearance. Mild aroma of hay, cinnamon, and ginger. Crisp, with some residual corn and eggplant flavors. Very light and mild, but still complex enough to enjoy slowly. Sweet sticky malt finish, with a small bite of yeast. I really do think this is an exceptional vienna style lager.

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2003 A fall favorite. Each year the complexity of the beer changes. 2002 was one of the best in history. Excellent balance and clean finish.

AMber color with a smallish cream colored head. Aroma of dry malt and caramel. Heavier feel with a touch of spritz. Flavors of light malt and old hops. Not sure on the freshness of this bottle. Simple malt flavors. Somewhere between a vienna and an american amber.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 27, 2002
Very malty tasting with just enough hops to balance it out. Very thick-tasting flavor. Smells like barley but little else. Overall not that impressive but refreshing and certainly not to be turned down.

One of the most complex malt aromas I’ve ever encountered in a non-bock lager. A great underpinning of hops, too. Beautifully layered complex sweet malt with long, unfolding flavor and ending with a gorgeous long dry finish. Wow. I can’t believe how fine a job this ale brewery did with this lager. Simply wonderful.

Surprisingly good - rich and malty with brown sugar tones. A nice warm taste, slight spice in the aftertaste.
