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.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - OCT 27, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2010 Re-Rate: 11-16-2010: 12oz bottle from the Sahara Mart in Bloomington, IN. Pours a crystal clear, golden-orange-copper colored body with a finger-width, frothy, white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing throughout. Aroma is some sweeter caramels with a light grainy toast. A hint of earth, honey, nuts, and bread. Flavor is solid. Caramels, a light grain, honey, toffee, bread, some nuts, a light toast, and florals. Finishes with a light, balancing earth that helps dry this out before leaving a light bitterness and a medium-length aftertaste. Very smooth, light-medium body and soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent Oktoberfest. Slightly better than I remember. Very smooth, pretty flavorful, and easy drinking. Not bad at all. (6,3,7,3,13=3.2). Original Rating: 10-27-2009: 12oz bottle. Pours a crystal clear, orange-copper body with a thin, off-white, fizzy head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is sweeter caramels with a light grain, some earth, honey, and a distinct malty apple fruit. No real hops or toasty malts. Flavor is more earthy with a dry nutty, light toast to go along with a sweeter caramel. Finishes with a light hop bitterness and lingers with a short, malty sweet, semi toasty, earthy aftertaste. Light bodied and very smooth with a nice, crisp ending. Overall, a decent tasting Oktoberfest with a nice, crisp flavor. Not the best, but not the worst. (5,3,6,3,11=2.8).

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - OCT 21, 2009
Bottle. Pours an orange amber body with a yellow white head. Sweet malt notes, light earth tones, caramel and cider notes. Overall it rather bland but session able. Eh.

Pours an orange color with a white head that just barely hangs on throughout the drink. Classic lager flavor. maybe a bit of subtle sweetness to differentiate it from a bud. nothing special.not horrible...not great.

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - SEP 26, 2009
The first sip made me cringe and think, "Ohh..... terrible!" The subsequent drinks did nothing to correct that impression, and in fact only intensified the horrific flavor mess this brewery decided to bottle.. A bitter dry metallic flavor that made me really want a Bud Light.

milljam (682) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 22, 2009
Aroma has notes of caramel, malt and lager yeast. Flavor is similar. Nothing bad, but there wasn’t anything that stood out as good.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 17, 2009
Bottle courtesy of canihave4beers. Pours copper with a white head. Smells of caramel, earthy. Tastes earthy with some light, spicy elements on the finish.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 12, 2009
Clear orange amber with a large white head. Good retention, only temporary lace. Malt syrup aroma with a slight sulfur edge to it. Flavor has Munich malts: apple cider, nut, again spoiled by the sulfur edge. Medium body, some life in the carbonation on the palate.

12oz bottle, shiny clear amber with a big, pillowy white head. Paired very well with a thick-cut pork chop, maybe the chop influenced my high rating on this brew! Spotty lacing on the glass, nice aroma but no real distinct characteristics, a bit muddled with malt and caramel. Some bite to the flavor, which is surprisingly crisp and on the lighter side of medium in body. Lots of nice sweet malts, mostly balanced by some hoppy bite and a touch of alcohol. Nice for a marzen.

arkurzynski (1487) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 6, 2009
Pours copper/orange. Sweet/malty aroma. Quite bitter and dry for an Oktoberfest. Leaves a bit of a sour aftertaste. Stick with some of the other Point beers.
