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.

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.

nearbeer (4835) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 12, 2010
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.

ChainGangGuy (4781) - Woodstock, 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.

muzzlehatch (4650) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 26, 2016
12 ounce bottle from Klineman’s in Delavan, WI (August 2016), drunk a bit above fridge temp from a lager glass. My first Oktoberfest of the season! Medium clear amber pour, large and tenacious off-whie head with fine lacing...simple sweet caramel-malty nose lacks the toasty notes I expect but not unpleasant...too sweet on the tongue though, and without enough body to back it up, this is immediately cloying and tough to drink, though a little bit of acerbic burnt/smoky character does show up to save it (somewhat). Not terrible, but not good either; I used half of this bottle for cooking and it was probably a wise choice.

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.

patrick767 (4000) - 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.

CanIHave4Beers (3999) - 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.

thegreenrooster (3977) - 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.

Frank (3976) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 30, 2015
Tasted blind: This is slightly cloudy w/ a foamy head, pretty light in color for an American Oktoberfest. It’s pretty mild in flavor but oversweet and sticky. It’s got a bit of oxidized malt and a combination of mineral and citrus notes that sit kind of strangely together. This is drinkable at best.

drewbeerme (3916) - 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.
