COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Point Oktoberfest is an authentic Marzen Style Lager Beer, a style reminiscent of the beers originally brewed for the first Oktoberfest Celebrations in Germany during the early 1800’s. Hand-crafted using Hallertauer hops and sweet Vienna roasted malts for a rich amber hue. The result is a full flavored, well balanced beer, brewed in celebration of the upcoming season.

Bottle. Pours a clear dark gold body with a very thin fizzy white head that faded very quickly. Looks rather thin on the pour. The nose is fairly thin with a slightly husky note and some light sweetness. I don’t smell any hops in here at all. The flavor is rather thin and sweet with light huskiness on the finish. This is seriously lacking in body and depth of the malt profile. The flavor profile really comes across as more of an Amber Ale than a true Marzen. Light bodied and thin in texture with a slight stickiness on the finish, light fizzy carbonation. Not exactly a role model for the style.

Bottle. Yellow/amber pour with white head. Smells of sweet malt. Tastes sweet on the front with a balanced finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bright amber, mild sweet aroma, filtered appearance, small but lasting head unlike the Point Amber, good lasting lacing to the end. Excellent overall sweet flavor, not hoppy, great drinkability for all day festivals in New Braunfels like wurstfest. Great flavor and lighter body.

kdm1984 (633) - Missouri, USA - AUG 30, 2013
Pours light copper with a pretty good-sized head. Very little aroma beyond some vaguely earthy and toasty malts. Taste of yeast, bread, and toast. Light and crisp and creamy. Not a wower, but it hits all the basic examples of the style. Pleasant, easy drinker on a hot day.

Clear amber with a puffy, light tan head. Aroma is caramel malt, bread... Taste is sweet, toasted bread. Caramel malt... Average, but pretty good.

Bottle at home courtesy of elkhunter36. Thanks man! Pour is clear amber with a small cream head and good lacing. Grainy, old, malty aroma w tih light touches of grass, corn, and wet-dog. Taste is caramel, somewhat grainy, corn, grassy, citrusy, bready, light toffee, and nutty. Medium mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Meh.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 22, 2012
12 ounce bottle from Total Wine, Virginia Beach. Pours a clear amber color with a thin off-white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of grainy toasted malts. The taste is toasted malts, apple, faint hop finish. Thin and slightly watery.

Braudog (5591) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Bottle. Pours with a standard-looking amber hue and a tight head of white foam. The aroma is soapy, macro-like. This drinks with a hint of toasty malt and a sweet maltose/biscuit finish. Falls flat. (#4823, 11/18/2012)

Acceptable marzen Oktoberfest. Pretty standard for the genre, amber colored pour with a balanced, perfectly sessionable lager. Despite, it’s still forgettable.
