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.

Pristine, transparent and pale copper in color with a laundry foam head of white. Aroma reveals a toasted assortment, rounded out by crisp bran flakes getting capped with auburn hazelnuts, caramel and honey. A sweet whole wheat brown bread scent keeps the traditional sense going. Flavor lays in frankly. Sweet whole wheat and cornmeal with caramel make the first impression on the palate. Quaffable, expansive carbonation. Warm brown bread diffusion. Caramel sweetened whole grain oats parceled with toasted bran flakes. Medium bodied and a frequent contributor to all areas of the mouth, finishing with leaven bread, oat dust and a mild toffee talc afterlife.

Bif (1836) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Pours a dark amber color with a fairly small head that fades to bits of lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, mild sweetness and bit of grain. Taste of roasted malt, nice malt sweetness and bit of grain in the background. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Fairly light body, smooth with a good balance. Enjoyable beer, better than I expected.

From a distance, it looks like a Marzen/Oktoberfest. But when you get up close, its just brown water with a tad bit of hop and malt.

Aroma of ceral toasty malt,somewhat faint,but distinct,taste is also ceral toasty, very much on the light side,with a slightly metallic bitter taste,somewhat distracting on this very light beer. OK for the price

12 oz. twist-off bottle, no freshness date, sampled in a lager glass. Poured a clear golden hued amber with a frothy off-white head, decent retention, a little ringed sticking at the top of the glass. Aromas of lightly roasted caramel, nutty, traces of sweet fruitiness and floral hops. Smooth medium-light body, crisp and dry, easy quaffability. Sweet tasting, lightly roasted caramel with some pale malt sweetness. Sweet green grape fruitiness in the middle. Mildly spicy hops along with a dry nuttiness coming out at the end. A passable Oktoberfest at an affordable price. Won’t knock your socks off, but will do in a pinch.

coldbrewky (1571) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Twist off Bottle via UDBeernut in box with returned growlers. A pleasant deep orange in tall glass with a thick white healthy head. Sweet malt, grass and tubas in the nose. Body is central with malt light graininess, and a bit wishy-wahsy water. Accordions and lederhosen optional. Body meanders back onto path for a crisp quick finish that leads directly to the next sip.

Poured at the Galaxy Oktoberfest. Light golden amber with a small head. Aroma is malts with toffee, caramel, and graham crackers with bread dough. Light spices. The taste is similar with a nice blend of the caramel and toffee. Moderate sweetness and carbonation. Not a bad marzen.
