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 from a bottle a red/gold color with minimal head and lacing. Aroma was primarily of sweet malts with slightly fruity twinge. The taste frontend was mainly of malts with a hint of nuttiness and hay. The finish was of a mild hop bitterness. Palate was decent - not too thin and decent carbonation level. Overall, this is nice, smooth Marzen style brew from the folks in Point.

Several draught pints. pours a deep orange-amber with a small diminishing fizzy off-white head. Aroma is quite vegetal along with caramel malt, light hops, some light sugary sweetness and some toffee. Flavour of caramel malt, light hops, light vegetal notes, apples and a light bitter finish. Average to medium bodied. As far as Oktoberfest beers go its pretty good.

Clear copper, loose white head. Caramel and peppery aromas. Flavor is lightly sweet caramel and peppery hops - pretty much what the aroma promises. Simple, but not bad.

six pack from the local rip and run. Twist off cap, glad I used electrical tape for Mr. Coldbrewky. Pours a lovely translucent amber capped by a billowy off white head with good retention. Nose has a nice bread character. Taste follows in order with light bitterness and flowers. Body is a bit weak and watery. Tasty and easy drinking none the less.

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.

Transfer from Ba review on 10-29-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a light copper/ orange amber color with a one finger of fizzy white head. The head fades fast at first, but then slows at is gets smaller, eventually fading to leave a light level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is heaviest of lightly toasted malt and a good amount of caramel sweetness. These aromas are the bulk of the smell, but other lighter aromas of a grassy and toffee aroma are there as well, overall creating a sweet and lightly roasted aroma. Taste – The taste begins with some bready flavors with some caramel sweetness. As the flavor advances the bready flavors gain a bit of roasted nature toward the middle and the end. Along with the change in the bready flavors, there are also changes in the sweet flavors as well. The caramel at the front is joined by some toffee flavors in the middle and a lighter fruit flavor at the end. With all these transitions, an herbal and grassy flavor comes to the tongue more toward the end of the taste, leaving a decently roasted but moderately sweet and grassy flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average to slightly lighter side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the average side. Both are rather appropriate for the style and quite appropriate for the flavor profile of the beer. Overall – A rather average Oktoberfest. A decent blend of malt, roast, sweet and hop creating a rather easy drinking brew overall.

This O-fest has a little more hop presence than others. Otherwise malty and sweet as expected. Tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
