Well...yeah. Don’t really want to go through a full 6 of this...but beer’s beer and it’s not the color of pee.

Same old Point for me... again it tastes like Point Special Lager, but with random spices thrown in... not impressed.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copper color. Smell of roasted malt, leaves, spice and bread. Taste of leaves, malt, nuts, spice, bread and caramel. At times, it was enjoyable, and then at other times it was harsh.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz bottle. Poured a clear medium orange color. Head was off white with good retention. There was only minimal lace left behind at the end. Aroma was of light butterscotch/buttery caramel. There was also a whiff of steeping barley. Slightly sweet with a hint of malty caramel flavor. There wasn’t any significant hop bitterness or flavor. So so.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
typical orange/brown color (great autumn colors) for an O’fest. head is frothy, beige. aroma has a lot of bready malts and a nice earthiness. flavor is pretty similar with a metallic quality. not bad, but thin.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I finally found a six pack of this; seems like most retailers around here didn’t get very much of it. From a 12-oz. bottle, this pours a crystal-clear copper with a thin head. Lots of bubbles making their way to the top. Bready & slightly nutty aroma. Initial malty taste with moderate nuttiness and a hint of vanilla. Surpringly dry. Not a heavy beer by any means but quite tasty; very easy to knock back.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma is fruityand malty. Taste is sweet and strongly malted. Not bad for the price, it at least bears resemblance to "real"Oktoberfest beers.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Well, this is a rather attractive beer (clear amber body, but a very thin head); unfortunately, that’s the finest attribute. Aroma is of sweet roasted caramel and a wet cardboard box. The flavor, sadly enough, echoes the aroma. You know, this might not be a bad Oktoberfest if the hops played a more prominent role. Seeing that probably won’t happen, you’re best to look elsewhere if you want a beer that celebrates this season.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle. pours clear copper with white head. nose is pretty corny with some mild sweet malty notes. flavor is corn, mild sweet malty notes, and more corn. too much carbonation and watery. the finish isn’t too bad, some rich malty notes but calling them rich is sort of a stretch.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. twist-off bottle, no freshness date, sampled in a lager glass.
Poured a clear golden hued amber with a frothy off-white head, decent retention, a little ringed sticking at the top of the glass.
Aromas of lightly roasted caramel, nutty, traces of sweet fruitiness and floral hops.
Smooth medium-light body, crisp and dry, easy quaffability. Sweet tasting, lightly roasted caramel with some pale malt sweetness. Sweet green grape fruitiness in the middle. Mildly spicy hops along with a dry nuttiness coming out at the end.
A passable Oktoberfest at an affordable price. Won’t knock your socks off, but will do in a pinch.
