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.

Pours copper/orange. Sweet/malty aroma. Quite bitter and dry for an Oktoberfest. Leaves a bit of a sour aftertaste. Stick with some of the other Point beers.

typical orange/brown color (great autumn colors) for an O’fest. head is frothy, beige. aroma has a lot of bready malts and a nice earthiness. flavor is pretty similar with a metallic quality. not bad, but thin.

Bif (1451) - 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.

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.

Had this one on draught at the brewery in Stevens Point, Wisconsin. Clear, copper pour with a thick off-white head. A nice malty nose and character. Pleasant but ultimately weak.

sthlm (1231) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 1, 2007
[Bottle, thanks Skyview (Once again, I will change this if I see someone else actually brought it)] Burnt smell with a little spice. Malty, not the best taste. A little thin. Short finish. Very average.

Guerde (1168) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - SEP 1, 2007
(bottle, thanks Skyview) Pours light amber with a white head. Aroma of some honey and a little caramel. Taste was also malty with a crisp finish, but really not much else.

Onslow (1166) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Cleam amber brew with light head. Aroma of caramel, malt, hay, bread. Taste is sweet malt at the start with a little grass and floral hops in the finish. Still sweet at the end, but not overwhelming as this is overall rather thin and weak. Average pallate. A little sticky in the finish. Quaffable.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 23, 2008
A nice looking pour. A clear amber color with a nice two-finger tall off-white head. No real lacing. Boring malty aroma with some acidic notes and maybe some light spice and hops thrown in. The flavor wasn’t good. Malty and acidic with no spice or hops pushing through. Thin mouthfeel.

Bottle. Love Marzen beers and this is a good one. Amber copper color. Malty, nutty taste. Aroma is candy corn, hay, love it.
