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.

Aroma is of sweet bready malt. Taste is also a bready, but almost roasted. Overall not the best, but not bad either.

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.

Taste/palate etc: medium bodied. Quiet clean lager feel, smooth body , good malt with light floral hop to it. Quiet nice , drinkable Okto. One of better ones on market.

Bif (1392) - 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.

On Tap at the Great Lakes Brewfest. First off at the beer fest 2008, poured by the brew master himself. Amber with a medium white head. Aroma of grain, sweet malt and the smell of Munich. Taste of sweet malt, apple, malt and spice. Finishes dry and it’s a bit thin but overall not a bad effort from Point brewery.

12oz bottle, shiny clear amber with a big, pillowy white head. Paired very well with a thick-cut pork chop, maybe the chop influenced my high rating on this brew! Spotty lacing on the glass, nice aroma but no real distinct characteristics, a bit muddled with malt and caramel. Some bite to the flavor, which is surprisingly crisp and on the lighter side of medium in body. Lots of nice sweet malts, mostly balanced by some hoppy bite and a touch of alcohol. Nice for a marzen.

Bottle. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted sweet malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

12 oz. Soured caramel, husky grain, dry grass and a slight metallic twinge on the nose. Flavor is the same mix. Light earthy leaf, toasted nut and chewing tobacco in the long finish. Clear copper with very few, if any, lasting bubbles. Medium body is balanced, has medium carbonation, is slightly astringent and a bit tingly.
