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.

Slight oxidation, not really that bad for a Oktoberfest although it still has that spice taste that makes American Oktoberfests inferior to German standards of the style.

12 oz. Soured caramel, husky grain, dry grass and a slight metallic twinge on the nose. Flavor is the same mix. Light earthy leaf, toasted nut and chewing tobacco in the long finish. Clear copper with very few, if any, lasting bubbles. Medium body is balanced, has medium carbonation, is slightly astringent and a bit tingly.

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.

patrick767 (3402) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 9, 2010
bottle - Pours light copper with a small white head. It has a mild caramel malt aroma. The flavor is of a typical marzen with minimal hops presence and a toasted caramel malt flavor. It’s light to medium bodied and while drinkable, is a bland, uninspiring brew.

1FastSTi (3283) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 1, 2007
Pours to a brassy body with a dense light off-white head. The aroma is corn husks, breads, toasted caramel, typical marzen aromas. The flavor is malty, toasted pale and caramel malts, sweet breads. The palate is watery slick with a medium-light body. A decent, drinkable Oktoberfest.

UPDATED: NOV 16, 2010 Re-Rate: 11-16-2010: 12oz bottle from the Sahara Mart in Bloomington, IN. Pours a crystal clear, golden-orange-copper colored body with a finger-width, frothy, white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing throughout. Aroma is some sweeter caramels with a light grainy toast. A hint of earth, honey, nuts, and bread. Flavor is solid. Caramels, a light grain, honey, toffee, bread, some nuts, a light toast, and florals. Finishes with a light, balancing earth that helps dry this out before leaving a light bitterness and a medium-length aftertaste. Very smooth, light-medium body and soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent Oktoberfest. Slightly better than I remember. Very smooth, pretty flavorful, and easy drinking. Not bad at all. (6,3,7,3,13=3.2). Original Rating: 10-27-2009: 12oz bottle. Pours a crystal clear, orange-copper body with a thin, off-white, fizzy head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is sweeter caramels with a light grain, some earth, honey, and a distinct malty apple fruit. No real hops or toasty malts. Flavor is more earthy with a dry nutty, light toast to go along with a sweeter caramel. Finishes with a light hop bitterness and lingers with a short, malty sweet, semi toasty, earthy aftertaste. Light bodied and very smooth with a nice, crisp ending. Overall, a decent tasting Oktoberfest with a nice, crisp flavor. Not the best, but not the worst. (5,3,6,3,11=2.8).

thegreenrooster (3087) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 12, 2013
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.

CanIHave4Beers (2908) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - NOV 5, 2009
Pours a light orange color with a small head. The aroma has mild nutty notes and a bit of graininess. The flavor is malty and grainy with some light fruity sweetness and some light nuttiness, light, light, light.
