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.

Copper color with a light head and light lacing. The aroma is buttery (diactyl) and malty. The flavor is light and creamy, slightly nutty, lots of caramel. How is this a lager? This has lots more specialty malts than I'm used to in a lager. Finishes light and nutty, not too bad.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2005 Nice caramel color. Nose very malty, a bit sweet. Huge malty flavor, nice caramel tones, nice hit of bitterness at the end, sort of a faint Cascade-esque citrus bite to it. Quite creamy. Really, really good stuff.

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2013 I have picked up a few six packs of this each fall for years. Always solid and enjoyable. I think it has gotten a little milder over the years. Has a deep amber and is very smooth. A little malt flavor. Some spiciness. Nice and light. A great lager that I love to pick up whenever it is available.

One of the best lagers I've ever had. I'm not a fan of this style, so for me to say this is a very big step. Of coures, I am a fan of Boulevard, especially their seasonals, and Bob's 47 certainly ranks up there with Nutcracker and Zon. The smell is slightly haylike or grasslike, but not as strong as other lagers and definitely not repulsive like the really bad ones. Appearance isn't piss-yellow but rather a darker, more amberish color that is quite appealing. The taste is malty and slightly bitter with enough complexity to keep me interested. Not a bear I could drink non-stop for hours straight, but defintely a good one to pick up when I'm in the mood. Good job Boulevard...too bad you don't make this year-round.

Full of subtle nuances, this flavorful, malty, lightly bittered lager is a real Munich-style winner. This is indeed the real deal. Thanks to PhillyBeer for hooking me up with this tasy treat from KC.

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.

Silphium (3191) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - OCT 13, 2003
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
