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.

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.

LinusStick (3073) - 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.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - NOV 12, 2009
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)

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - OCT 3, 2008
(Bottle) Pours a solid amber color with a small, whispy white head. Aroma is quite sweet. Caramel malts and some light vanilla notes as well. Flavor is what you would expect from the aroma. Some toffee and possibly a touch of hazelnut in there as well. Nothing too memorable, but certainly a drinkable and refreshing beer that is quite good this time of year.

Draught from habitat. Amber. Honey malt and caramel. Syrupu taste. Not amazing. Very low hops. Meh.

unclemike (2746) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - NOV 21, 2008
12oz bottle - Poured redish copper color with white head that hung around for a few minutes. Aroma was nice, kinda like a Jolly Rancher. Tasted dry with a wine like feel, not bad if you enjoy watered down wine. Overall I was fairly happy with Point’s version of this style beer.

Shag (2738) - 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.

Bockyhorsey (2626) - 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.

Cirsp clear honey colored beer. Slight malty nose and taste with a metallic aftertaste.

jcr (2458) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - OCT 7, 2011
Bottle. Deep amber body with orange highlights. Big beige head, slowly diminishing The aroma was grainy with notes of toast and a hint of DMS and caramel. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture and lively carbonation. Average Oktoberfest, but better than the other two beers I’ve had from this brewery.
