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.

Clear dark gold,short head,slight froth with light lacing. Aroma is grainy,sweet,some toast,carmel,some ripe fruit like orange.Vanilla. Taste is same but with some pepperyness.Carmel toast or slight roast. Crisp kind of tangy, light citrus finish. Not bad.

This time a year I’m a sucker for a good Marzen and this one delivers. As for appearance it’s nothing exceptional; orangish-amber body with a thin head head that fades quick. Aroma is roast hops with caramel and toffee. Taste is full bodied, toffee, hops, caramel with a hint of coffee. Finishes clean. I liked it.

Thanks to Skyview. Copper color with no head. Slight banana aroma and taste. Not much in the way of grains and not what I’d expect from an "Octoberfest", but not bad.

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.

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2009 Marzen style, light golden brown color with a thin, light tan head. Slight hop aroma with a hint of caramel. Rich, roasted malt taste with a little hoppy bite. A well balanced and tasty Oktoberfest beer.

Has a detectable flavor of spices, yeast and roasted malts with a slightly dry hoppy finish. A little thin, but pulls off the Marzen style reasonably well. Not technically one of the better examples of the style, but worth a try if one wants a sessionable autumn beer.

Pours an orange color with a white head that just barely hangs on throughout the drink. Classic lager flavor. maybe a bit of subtle sweetness to differentiate it from a bud. nothing special.not horrible...not great.

Poured from bottle, a bit light in the body but overall I thought it tasted pretty good and I enjoyed it.

Pours a beautiful copper gold with a decent sized mostly lasting off white head with lots of carbonation. Nose is mostly malt with a hint of hops. Fairly creamy texture, this Octoberfest has a malt flavor but the taste is not as pronounced as similiar beers. A light hops note on adds a pleasant finish.. Pairs well with ham and swiss on rye.

12 ponce bottle. Clear with minimal carbonation to be seen. An off white head that is small. Soft fruity hops are smelled with light malt and honey. The flavor begins with that gentle fruit and easy spice. It seems to be sessionable. Mild bitterness here. An undertone of figs and tangerine. A zingy feel. There is not a lot of depth in this beer but this is pleasant and works nicely after a vigorous workout.
