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 so good unfortunatly, but not offensive. It merely lacks qualities to enjoy. Orange color. Light malt aroma and more malt in the flavor with just a hint of caramel. It is like they didn’t try.

jgb9348 (5729) - 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.

Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at Cellar’s Wine & Spirits in St Paul, MN. Pours a clear golden amber brew with an off-white head that has a decent slow dissolve to a fine film and ring. Aroma of caramel malt with a touch of honey and banana. Taste is medium bodied, some light carbonation with flavors of sweet sugared caramel, honey and banana. Finish is slightly watery and thin with a faint caramel aftertaste. An average Oktoberfest.

Pours amber from the bottle. No head. Grassy smell. Carmel and malty taste. Not the greatest but drank it easily. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark bronze to dark copper color. Smallish aged paper colored head. Light aromas, with toasted grain about as much as I can detect. There is a slight amount of DMS, but I only sniff that after looking for something more. Lots of caramel to start. A bitter, somewhat acidic/astringent component. Some dry nutty flavors as well. Seems like a dry nutty lager. Lacks a smooth crisp anything. I appreciate the effort, but some work still needs to be done to perfect this one.

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.

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.

New arrival at John’s in Iowa City. The body is medium copper with a light off white head. The aroma is grainy with some notes of peanuts and toffee. The taste has some light notes of caramel along with iced tea. Actually this is nicely balanced and lightly falvored. I find this to be a nice sessionable Ofest. I prefer this to some of the overhopped US versions of this style.

12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours amber with a thick, cream-colored head. Aroma of toasted malts, dough, and some light hops. The hops in this beer don’t blend as well as other beers of this style. Sort of light in texture. Not the best beer.
