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.

Pours a clear copper with one finger head that quickly dissipates leaving small lacing. Toasted malt with small to moderate caramel and slight metallic taste to it, but not overbearing. Mild pine hop aromas. Slightly sweet up front taken over by slight to moderate bitterness. Medium body with medium carbonation and slightly sticky palate. Medium to long finish. with well balanced hop and malt character. Hoppier than one would expect of a Marzen, but I like it that way.

An average octoberfest style beer. Pours a reddish orange color with ivory head. Some caramel malt, pine, and toast on the nose; follows onto the palate.

Drjohnrock (431) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 18, 2014
Twelve ounce bottle from mix six pack purchased at Whitey’s Wine and Liquor, Lawrenceburg, Indiana, tasted on September 28, 2013. Medium orange color, medium toasted malt nose, mostly bitter taste with some astringency and chemical notes, not enough sweet toasted malt flavor. I expect better from Boulevard.

hotstuff (4069) - Indiana, USA - APR 14, 2014
Rated on 11-13-2011. When poured, this beer has a small ivory head that mostly diminishes, transparent body, fast rising carbonation, and virtually no lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, hops and fruity. The taste is lightly bitter, caramel malt, lightly hoppy, and lightly fruity. The mouthfeel is lively but yet soft and this beer is medium bodied. This beer is just so-so tasting. It is not a bad beer per se. It just lacks character and wow factor.

ttoadee (635) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 10, 2014
Clear amber pour, tan head. Nose is caramel malt. More sweet than bitter, decent balance. Middle is medium body, lots of toasted grain. Finish is malty with a hint of hops. Decent.

jbuskirk (433) - Holdrege, Nebraska, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Excellent American take on the Oktoberfest. This one has a beautiful dark amber color and a flavor and aroma that reflect toasted malts. The hops add spiciness to the sugary alcohol taste. A phenomenal tribute to a master brewer.

Beautiful amber color, aroma is malt and hops, taste a little hops and very malty. Excellent, far better than Sam Adams, prefer to the German ones I've tried. My personal favorite Oktoberfest. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

beastiefan2k (2410) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - DEC 7, 2013
12oz bottle poured into a Blvd Tulip. Pours a pretty hue: amber brown with a faint rose hue. Small tight head fades into a small lacing. Clear beer with a bit of carbonation right in the middle. Pretty color. Aroma is bready and toasted lagered malts. Clean with no off flavor, beautiful. Just a little bit of a fruity hop aroma, not bitter. Flavor is great with sweet malts, not sugary, not even caramel but sort of toasted caramel light. Just a nice light fruit and bitter hop finish. Beautifully, clean and full of flavor. Great Vienna, not O’fest.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours amber in color with off white head. Taste Carmel, sweet, fruity. I thought this was good. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lukaduke (2144) - Portland, Maine, USA - NOV 15, 2013
Pours a brownish copper color with a finger of white foam. The nose is doughy malt, toasted wheat and a touch of tea and grass. The palate follows the nose and is round and malty without being overbearing. Nice refreshing carbonation, crusty bread and a bitter grassy finish.
