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.

12 ponce bottle. Clear with minimal carbonation to be seen. An off white head that is small. Soft fruity hops are smelled with light malt and honey. The flavor begins with that gentle fruit and easy spice. It seems to be sessionable. Mild bitterness here. An undertone of figs and tangerine. A zingy feel. There is not a lot of depth in this beer but this is pleasant and works nicely after a vigorous workout.

Thanks to Skyview. Copper color with no head. Slight banana aroma and taste. Not much in the way of grains and not what I’d expect from an "Octoberfest", but not bad.

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.

ChainGangGuy (4280) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 19, 2010
12 ounce bottle - $1.29 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia. Appearance: Pours a clear, orange-amber body with a finger or two of off-white suds. A few glass-clinging smears of lace on the descent. Smell: Sweetish nose, primarily bready, but with some toasty and nutty accents to it and a far-off hint of light caramel syrup. Herbal, spicy, earthy Noble hops. Taste: Maltiness tasting of ever so slight toasted bread brushed with a coating of sugary caramel. Lightly nutty. Faint fruitiness. Spicy, earthy German hops with ample supporting bitterness. The initial, light nuttiness grows a bit as you near the drying, reasonably crisp finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation. Drinkability: A standard, simple, but easy-drinking O-fest (at a decent price) to kick-start the weekend.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 16, 2008
On Tap at the Great Lakes Brewfest. First off at the beer fest 2008, poured by the brew master himself. Amber with a medium white head. Aroma of grain, sweet malt and the smell of Munich. Taste of sweet malt, apple, malt and spice. Finishes dry and it’s a bit thin but overall not a bad effort from Point brewery.

drewbeerme (3869) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 15, 2007
12oz bottle. pours clear copper with white head. nose is pretty corny with some mild sweet malty notes. flavor is corn, mild sweet malty notes, and more corn. too much carbonation and watery. the finish isn’t too bad, some rich malty notes but calling them rich is sort of a stretch.

cheap (3802) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 25, 2010
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.

12oz bottle. shared with some friends around a fire on a cool oktober evening. clear orange under a small white head. blend of mild hops and toasty malt. flavor is lightly toasted with a floral hop addition. balanced perfectly and really relaxing to drink. a bit lighter than usual. the hops give it a nice floral finish. light body.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - NOV 21, 2007
12 oz bottle. Poured a clear medium orange color. Head was off white with good retention. There was only minimal lace left behind at the end. Aroma was of light butterscotch/buttery caramel. There was also a whiff of steeping barley. Slightly sweet with a hint of malty caramel flavor. There wasn’t any significant hop bitterness or flavor. So so.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - FEB 7, 2009
In the bottle from HyVee Ames, IA. Pours orange amber with a clear medium off white head. Short retention. malty aroma- subtle apples and cotton candy. medium thick mouthfeel that finishes a bit fizzy, but leaves a long caramel taste on the tongue.
