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.

From notes. Bottle. Sweet soapy caramel. Again, just another crappy example of a Marzen.

Delicious Oktoberfest. Appearance is much lighter than a typical Oktoberfest. Dark golden color lots of flavor and smooth finish. Another solid effort by boulevard ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottled at SBWF. Clear amber, minimal head. Doughy nose with buttery malt. Mid sweet with medium body and well rounded mouthfeel. Richly malty with bread and butter. Low bitterness. Good, rich festbier!

Light copper color yeasty bread nose lightly effervescent mouthfeel. Not my favorite Octoberfest beer of this year but certainly not the worst. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

skmikeg (1404) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - SEP 4, 2015
Pours amber with a one finger off white head with pretty nice lacing. Aroma and taate is of toasted bread, caramel sweet malts, light toffee, grassy hops, and some spicy hops. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi bitter, medium finish. Overall, a pretty nice Oktoberfest.

CousinBrenden (125) - St Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 5, 2015
Clear dark orange crystal clear and great carbonation. Thick sweet malty flavor good martzen...could be a little crisper for my palate but may be not really what the style commands.

HuskerTan (1034) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - JAN 2, 2015
Bottle. A- Malty, spice, wheat. A- Pale orange color, clear liquid, off white head. T- Malty, spice, slightly woody.. P- Light body, average texture, medium carbonation, malty finish. O- This was a little past the best by date but I still did’t expect it to be this bland and unbalanced. Just tasted really malty and not a lot of anything else. Very disappointing. Better as it warms.

ajnepple (3765) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - DEC 11, 2014
12 oz single bottle into a pint glass, purchased yesterday, best by 11/26/14, WTF Tipsy’s? Burnt orange, light amber and clear appearance with a white head and light lacing. Aroma of Munich malts, light noble hops, toffee, bread, toasted grains and light caramel. The flavor is malt forward and moderately sweet with a light spicy hop bitterness coming through in the finish. Pretty solid oktoberfest bier, even after the best by date.

chinchill (3221) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 30, 2014
12 oz bottle with a BB date stamp of Dec. 2014. A bit bland, even for a Marzen, this beer manages to have crisp, lively carbonation with a head that’s a bit weak for style. Light aroma and flavor is even a tad light for style, although not the hop level. Nearly as sweet as it is bitter.
