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.

Poured amber with a three fingered head. There was not much to the aroma, slightly malty. Flavor was slightly malty as well, nothing special. A decent o-fest, but nothing crazy....just average. Ends with some chocolate, caramel notes.

Clear orange amber with a large white head. Good retention, only temporary lace. Malt syrup aroma with a slight sulfur edge to it. Flavor has Munich malts: apple cider, nut, again spoiled by the sulfur edge. Medium body, some life in the carbonation on the palate.

DrSilverworm (5899) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 4, 2011
Drank from 12oz can. Very low on carbonation, kind of a cheap skunky texture. Aroma is bread, hint of pickle. Some spice. Savory light sweet taste. Got substantially better once I started eating the Subway BMT I was grilling. Palate isn’t even an issue anymore. Definitely only drink this is you are consuming some sort of food. Drinkable.

Acceptable marzen Oktoberfest. Pretty standard for the genre, amber colored pour with a balanced, perfectly sessionable lager. Despite, it’s still forgettable.

Well...yeah. Don’t really want to go through a full 6 of this...but beer’s beer and it’s not the color of pee.

Bockyhorsey (2609) - 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.

Braudog (5576) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Bottle. Pours with a standard-looking amber hue and a tight head of white foam. The aroma is soapy, macro-like. This drinks with a hint of toasty malt and a sweet maltose/biscuit finish. Falls flat. (#4823, 11/18/2012)

arkurzynski (1461) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 6, 2009
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.
