2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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)

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
six pack from the local rip and run. Twist off cap, glad I used electrical tape for Mr. Coldbrewky. Pours a lovely translucent amber capped by a billowy off white head with good retention. Nose has a nice bread character. Taste follows in order with light bitterness and flowers. Body is a bit weak and watery. Tasty and easy drinking none the less.
