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.

Not very significant in any way and surely not a reminder of any real Oktoberfest brau. Bitter finish, not very robust, not very complicated. Overall, a nonmemorable beer in every way. It does not cause acid stomach like most Leinenkugel beers do.

12 oz bottle from the sampler case. Just sorta so-so, with very little to recommend The overall flavor was weak. Should have had more body and taste.

Bottle from chicken chucks. Pours a clear copper color with a large white head. A light sweet malty nose with some dust. The flavor is big sweet malts, toffee, caramel, light fruit. Very good.

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. There is not much to the aroma. It has a light bready maltiness with some earthy and slightly grassy hops. 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.

This time a year I’m a sucker for a good Marzen and this one delivers. As for appearance it’s nothing exceptional; orangish-amber body with a thin head head that fades quick. Aroma is roast hops with caramel and toffee. Taste is full bodied, toffee, hops, caramel with a hint of coffee. Finishes clean. I liked it.

12 oz bottle pours amber with a off white head. Aroma and taste is malts and spice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz. bottle poured to a shaker at The Shoreline Restaurant bar in Gill’s Rock, WI., displaying a clear, amber tone, with off white spray as lacing. The nose was toasty, with a little dank grain scent. Light to medium bodied, with okay carbonation, the taste was also toasted, with a touch of caramel, and moderate, hop bitterness that had some earthy and lingering qualities. A decently quaffable Marzen.

ryecatcher (796) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 14, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear ambery-copper color, smallish white head not much retention, or lacing. Nose is extremely faint, some malt and candied orange. Mouth is medium bodied, lightly bitter throughout, mildly malty with some orange peel and bread dough. Finishes with some cereal. Unisnpired and extremely average leaning towards sub-par.

Pour is a clear amber with a small white head. Aroma is a decent caramel malt sweetness. Flavor is light at first then a bit of roast nut hits you. Finish is light and thin. Like most Point beers they are going in the right direction but just too light around the edges.
