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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

10.26.09 Tap at the Great Notch. A pretty meager oktoberfest really. Nothing redeeming whatsoever. Pass it up

Bottle: I don’t know if I should take the oxidation into consideration, since I bought this on closeout. The beer is dominated by a sweet malty breadiness, which I suppose is exactly what you look for in a Marzen.

Copper color. Smell of roasted malt, leaves, spice and bread. Taste of leaves, malt, nuts, spice, bread and caramel. At times, it was enjoyable, and then at other times it was harsh.

Dacrza (836) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JAN 9, 2010
Situation: Capping off a Black Friday...without shopping! Glassware: Saranac willibecker... Appearance: healthy orange body with a thick, pillowy two-finger head that settles nicely... consistent effervescence... Aroma: light hints of malt but basically a pilsner in breadth and depth... Palate: medium-bodied lager; an effervescent kick early that mellows... Taste: vigorous malts arrest the throat; a bit sharper than expected, and more of a pilsner in its flavoring than a lager--not a compliment considering the expectations... Overall: underwhelming take on a fall classic--tought to slag a beer that could prop up a tailgate, but this doesn’t make me look forward to next fall or to buying another six of this, sooo...

Pours light copper with a pretty good-sized head. Very little aroma beyond some vaguely earthy and toasty malts. Taste of yeast, bread, and toast. Light and crisp and creamy. Not a wower, but it hits all the basic examples of the style. Pleasant, easy drinker on a hot day.

Single from Three Cellars. Sweet and a bit weak light malts. Not bad though.
