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.

Drake (8563) - 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 (5748) - 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.

Radek Kliber (6470) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - OCT 21, 2012
Aroma: sweet side, grainy with dusty notes, light proper hop profile sitting at back. 6+
Look: clear amber gold with medium nuoted carbonation. Plus sized top that was rather short lived. Some rings on glass. 3-
Taste/palate etc: medium bodied. Quiet clean lager feel, smooth body , good malt with light floral hop to it. Quiet nice , drinkable Okto. One of better ones on market.

12 oz bottle I poured into a glass. Clear dark gold,short head,slight froth with light lacing. Aroma is grainy,sweet,some toast,carme.Vanilla notes. Carmel toast or slight roast. Crisp kind of tangy, light citrus finish. I enoyed this beer, not as good as Hofbu OctoberFest

ccex (924) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 19, 2012
12 oz bottle pours a clear amber with a small white head and a little lacing. Aroma is mostly caramel malts, with some vanilla and a bit of grass. Finish has a light citrus touch. Body is light to medium without much carbonation. As the start of the name implies, it’s OK, but I won’t search for this next fall. Thankfully, I only paid $6 for a 6-pack.

Pours amber from the bottle. No head. Grassy smell. Carmel and malty taste. Not the greatest but drank it easily. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a clear amber. Some hops and even a little bit of sourness on the palate. A pretty standard marzen but a bit more hops than others I have tried.
