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.

Very tasty fall beer. Full flavored octoberfest style beer with a hint of nutty flavor. Perfect for an October night.....or day.

I believe it is the lager yeast in this one that sets me on fire. I am so used to ales, but this one knocked me on my backside. Filled with flavor, this would be a nice offering year-round. Seems to age well in the fridge, I'll buy a little more next year.

My only complaint is that it sells out too fast. They need to increase their production. The best part of fall.

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.

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.

This seasonal beer is made in very short supply, so if you like it--I suggest you load up when it becomes available in mid September! This is my favorite Bouelvard beer, and one of my favorites overall. It’s got a strong punch right off the bat, and by the time you’re figuring out whether or not you either "like" or "really like" the beer, you look down to see your pint glass empty! Exceptional drinkability and the high alcohol percentage is ceratinly felt, but never tasted. After 3 of these beers, you’ll be converted; with each one surprisingly better than the last. Great, great Fall/Winter beer.

Malty, nutty, sweet, a bit of caramel and some well-balance bitterness. This is a true KC tradition and a beer not to be missed. There’s a reason it gets so hard to find. Complex, but so familiar. We salute you, Bob!

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.
