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.

12oz bottle supplied by Sam at Hangar 24. Rating #60. Clear dark gold with a little amber and a thin white head. Aroma is very bready and slightly toasty and nutty. Light malt and a bit thin, not bad though, but would be hard to drink a lot of. (1058)

LinusStick (2842) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2010
A decent American made Oktoberfest. Aroma was light roasted malt with a hint of peanut. Pour was light to medium brown with plenty of rising bubbles and a one finger off white head. Taste was nutty, with a roasted caramel base and an almost sweet sugary aftertaste. Not bad, but the nutty flavor just seemed off.

madvike (2696) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 23, 2011
Bottle - Light clear amber pour with a thin white head. Grainy, medicinal nose with a sticky sweetness and a sharp metallic note. The taste is better: lightly sweet caramel malt with a touch of nuttiness and spice transitioning into a lightly hopped malty finish. A bit watery both in body and flavor. Has a weird fruity flavor in there that I can’t place. Had the Ayinger Okto earlier in the week--this one isn’t in the same ZIP code.

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

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAY 17, 2009
Bottle courtesy of unclemike. Fermented grain aroma and spice. Amber body with decent head. Flavor was little odd as to it was more like cough syrup awith some spicey notes in the mix. Little tough on the palate.

Shag (2603) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - SEP 15, 2010
This pours a copper color with a large white head. This smells like PBR with a touch of caramel. The flavor is like PBR with a touch of caramel as well. This is no octoberfest, this is swill with food coloring.

Bottle at home courtesy of elkhunter36. Thanks man! Pour is clear amber with a small cream head and good lacing. Grainy, old, malty aroma w tih light touches of grass, corn, and wet-dog. Taste is caramel, somewhat grainy, corn, grassy, citrusy, bready, light toffee, and nutty. Medium mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Meh.

It poured a light amber color with a white head. The aroma was of some honey and a little caramel. The taste was also malty with a crisp finish, but really not much else.
