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.

Kinz (3514) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - OCT 5, 2003
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 (2518) - 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.

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - SEP 24, 2003
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.

3fourths (8602) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 16, 2003
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.

manolager (20) - Kansas, USA - MAY 15, 2003
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.

JPDIPSO (5107) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 17, 2003
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.
