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. Deep amber body with orange highlights. Big beige head, slowly diminishing The aroma was grainy with notes of toast and a hint of DMS and caramel. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture and lively carbonation. Average Oktoberfest, but better than the other two beers I’ve had from this brewery.

Coppery brown with a small head that didn’t last at all. Nutty, roasted malt aroma. Surprisingly bitter bite at the start with some nutty malt coming through towards the end. Really a decent beer but a bit odd for a Marzen.

(bottle, thanks Skyview) Pours light amber with a white head. Aroma of some honey and a little caramel. Taste was also malty with a crisp finish, but really not much else.

12 oz. twist-off bottle, no freshness date, sampled in a lager glass. Poured a clear golden hued amber with a frothy off-white head, decent retention, a little ringed sticking at the top of the glass. Aromas of lightly roasted caramel, nutty, traces of sweet fruitiness and floral hops. Smooth medium-light body, crisp and dry, easy quaffability. Sweet tasting, lightly roasted caramel with some pale malt sweetness. Sweet green grape fruitiness in the middle. Mildly spicy hops along with a dry nuttiness coming out at the end. A passable Oktoberfest at an affordable price. Won’t knock your socks off, but will do in a pinch.

12oz bottle. Pours a nice caramel color, orange amber, clear, big sudsy frothy off-white head 3.5. Aroma of some red apple and sweet caramel, hint of grass. Flavor is just a tad boozy, light munich malt, a slight richness, some apples, a bit hot, touch grassy. Medium/light bodied, sudsy feeling, frothy, fluffy, not sticky, chunky uneven carbonation. Actually not bad at all.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - NOV 12, 2009
12oz bottle supplied by Sam at Hangar 24. Rating #60. Clear dark gold with a little amber and a thin white head. Aroma is very bready and slightly toasty and nutty. Light malt and a bit thin, not bad though, but would be hard to drink a lot of. (1058)

Situation: Capping off a Black Friday...without shopping! Glassware: Saranac willibecker... Appearance: healthy orange body with a thick, pillowy two-finger head that settles nicely... consistent effervescence... Aroma: light hints of malt but basically a pilsner in breadth and depth... Palate: medium-bodied lager; an effervescent kick early that mellows... Taste: vigorous malts arrest the throat; a bit sharper than expected, and more of a pilsner in its flavoring than a lager--not a compliment considering the expectations... Overall: underwhelming take on a fall classic--tought to slag a beer that could prop up a tailgate, but this doesn’t make me look forward to next fall or to buying another six of this, sooo...
