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.

Alright marzen but not such a great brew overall. Aroma is a bit skunky and lightly hoppy.

12 oz twist off brown bottle. The appearance for this one is a dead ringer for a Shiner Oktoberfest, It is orange/amber in color, perhaps a bit lighter with a crappy fizzy white head that dissipates in about 10 seconds. The smell on this oen is decent for an oktoberfest, there is a soapy scent hat is kind of off putting, but overall it is a clean smelling version of the style. It doesn’t bring a ton of maerzen character but enough. This one is also unnofensive int he flavor, though im picking up some diacetyl. It is nutty, caramally, with a sourdough character. It isn’t too sweet like a lot of midrange oktoberfests. There is a light hop bitterness, nothing offensive, but nothing flattering. The mouthfeel seems a bit weak, but it is nice and drinkable. A middle of the road oktoberfest form a brewery known for brewing some crap. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 09-06-2010 02:08:13

Slight oxidation, not really that bad for a Oktoberfest although it still has that spice taste that makes American Oktoberfests inferior to German standards of the style.

Pours light orange with a thin head. Not much happening in the aroma. Tastes like...beer. Nothing special at all. Malty, slight toast. Medium carbonation. Finish is brief. Tried it with 5 other guys, against 6 other Oktoberfest beers. This was the unanimous least favorite.

12 ounce bottle - $1.29 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia. Appearance: Pours a clear, orange-amber body with a finger or two of off-white suds. A few glass-clinging smears of lace on the descent. Smell: Sweetish nose, primarily bready, but with some toasty and nutty accents to it and a far-off hint of light caramel syrup. Herbal, spicy, earthy Noble hops. Taste: Maltiness tasting of ever so slight toasted bread brushed with a coating of sugary caramel. Lightly nutty. Faint fruitiness. Spicy, earthy German hops with ample supporting bitterness. The initial, light nuttiness grows a bit as you near the drying, reasonably crisp finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation. Drinkability: A standard, simple, but easy-drinking O-fest (at a decent price) to kick-start the weekend.

Aroma is of sweet bready malt. Taste is also a bready, but almost roasted. Overall not the best, but not bad either.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2012 Clear, orange in color with a thin white head. Aroma of caramel malt, biscuit, slightly earthy. Flavor is spicy, late bitterness. Quite smooth.

vikingguy (836) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - OCT 28, 2010
Pours and amber/copper color with tall white head. Fragrant caramel malt aroma. Spicy sweet caramel malt, bready and a little roasty/nuttiness. Good balancing hops. A little thin but very drinkable. Another great Marzen!

Smells ok, a little of that typical point olfactory. Looks a little viscous just sitting there with its thin slow stream of bubbles; pale with a little brown. Rather strong initial flavors, then it mellows a little. Somewhat good sizzle on the CO2, fades rapidly. Certainly seems to have more than 5.15 here in the percent department. Eh, a little btter medicine finish.

gururyan (633) - Stillwater, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 22, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2014 Poured from bottle, a bit light in the body but overall I thought it tasted pretty good and I enjoyed it. Wish the ABV was more like a 6.5 though.
