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.

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.

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.

Poured from bottle, a bit light in the body but overall I thought it tasted pretty good and I enjoyed it.

jgb9348 (4709) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 13, 2010
Clear amber body with a non-existent head. Aroma of VERY funky malt, caramel, cardboard and more funk. Light-bodied; Candy sweetness up front with some old malt, a touch of cardboard and a very light caramel flavour at the end. Aftertaste is very mild with only the malt and light funky sugars coming through. Overall, a pretty subpar beer and one especially weak for the style. No spices, no complexity and frankly no good malt tastes even! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Norm’s in Vienna, Virginia on 04-October-2010, sampled in Newport News, Virginia on 13-October-2010.

Bottle. Pours amber with a thin off white head. Lightly sweet malty aroma with some toasty bready notes. The flavor is clean and malty with some light sweet and toasty notes. Decent.

12oz bottle. shared with some friends around a fire on a cool oktober evening. clear orange under a small white head. blend of mild hops and toasty malt. flavor is lightly toasted with a floral hop addition. balanced perfectly and really relaxing to drink. a bit lighter than usual. the hops give it a nice floral finish. light body.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a small mug. There is no freshness date ABV or description other that its style. Appearance: The body has a deep orange amber color with good clarity and lots of visible carbonation. From the aggressive pour I got a 1 inch collar of beige foam. This head quickly settles down to thin light layer. Lacing on the glass is spotty and slick. Smell: There is not much to the aroma. It has a light bready maltiness with some earthy and slightly grassy hops. Taste/Palate: The flavor is much more interesting. A good medium bodied base of bready malt starts things off. Deeper in there are some light toasted notes with very little sweetness. In the finish I get a lot of nutty and nut shell like notes along with fresh bread and earthy hops. This cleans up fairly quickly and somewhat dry. Carbonation and texture is right on. Notes: This one is a solid example of the style.

A decent American made Oktoberfest. Aroma was light roasted malt with a hint of peanut. Pour was light to medium brown with plenty of rising bubbles and a one finger off white head. Taste was nutty, with a roasted caramel base and an almost sweet sugary aftertaste. Not bad, but the nutty flavor just seemed off.

This pours a copper color with a large white head. This smells like PBR with a touch of caramel. The flavor is like PBR with a touch of caramel as well. This is no octoberfest, this is swill with food coloring.
