2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Acceptable marzen Oktoberfest. Pretty standard for the genre, amber colored pour with a balanced, perfectly sessionable lager. Despite, it’s still forgettable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2007 I agree with prior raters -- it’s like they said "oh we need an Oktoberfest, let’s throw something together." Aroma is weak, flavor is weak; it’s very average overall and below average as a Marzen.
RE-rated 9/30/07. From the bottle in a shaker. A little better on re-tasting. DArkish color, and a good amount of malts, without a ton of hops. Some caramel sweetness, but smoky in there too. I enjoed this a lot more on re-rating.

Poured amber with a three fingered head. There was not much to the aroma, slightly malty. Flavor was slightly malty as well, nothing special. A decent o-fest, but nothing crazy....just average. Ends with some chocolate, caramel notes.

This is the averagest oktoberfest ever created. It is outstanding in its averageness. There is nothing particularly horrible or good about this beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a bottle a red/gold color with minimal head and lacing. Aroma was primarily of sweet malts with slightly fruity twinge. The taste frontend was mainly of malts with a hint of nuttiness and hay. The finish was of a mild hop bitterness. Palate was decent - not too thin and decent carbonation level. Overall, this is nice, smooth Marzen style brew from the folks in Point.

Very true to the style very similar to the German counterparts. Medium amber clear color. Small white quickly dissipating head. Carmel malt aroma. Thin texture and light body.

1.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Wow was this disappointing. It smells great. It looks great. I was very excited. It starts off with an ok flavor but really watery. If it was not as watery I feel like it would be solid. However its finish is just awful. Image a burnt, bitter flavor. Just awful finish, you want to go eat some dirt to get that awful taste out of your mouth. I have no idea if I got a bad batch but it was awful.

I finally found a six pack of this; seems like most retailers around here didn’t get very much of it. From a 12-oz. bottle, this pours a crystal-clear copper with a thin head. Lots of bubbles making their way to the top. Bready & slightly nutty aroma. Initial malty taste with moderate nuttiness and a hint of vanilla. Surpringly dry. Not a heavy beer by any means but quite tasty; very easy to knock back.
