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.

Bottle, poured into a pint glass at about 40 degrees F. A: Pours a deep amber, like the color of clover honey. Formed a decent white head, and left little lacing on the glass. S: The aroma was mostly toast, with hints of caramel. It smelled warm. T: As promised by the nose, toast and a little biscuit, with some slight caramel and nut flavors at the finish. M: Overall mouthfeel was smooth if a bit fizzy, until the watery finish. O: A standard marzen. Nothing outstanding, but nothing bad either. I won’t go out of my way to find more, but if a six pack happens to be on sale for $2.99 again at a local store like this one was, it’s worth the price.

[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.

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.

In the bottle from HyVee Ames, IA. Pours orange amber with a clear medium off white head. Short retention. malty aroma- subtle apples and cotton candy. medium thick mouthfeel that finishes a bit fizzy, but leaves a long caramel taste on the tongue.

Aroma has notes of caramel, malt and lager yeast. Flavor is similar. Nothing bad, but there wasn’t anything that stood out as good.

Bottle. Pours amber with a thin off white head. Lightly sweet malty aroma with some toasty bready notes. The flavor is clean and malty with some light sweet and toasty notes. Decent.

Slight oxidation, not really that bad for a Oktoberfest although it still has that spice taste that makes American Oktoberfests inferior to German standards of the style.
