12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a clear honey orange with a small white head on top. No retention left behind. The aroma is light with notes of honey, floral tones, sweet sugary malts. The body is lighter than other Oktos I’ve had this season. Carbonation gives a light bubbly feel, but this beer lacks the moderate heft I like in this style. The flavors border on fruity, to a bit of a fault. Pale apple, sweet crackers, juice-like residual sweetness. The main players I expect in the flavor - caramel, malt, bread - are absent, or at least masked quite well under a covering of sweet fruity character. This one missed the mark for me. It wasn’t a bad "beer," it just wasn’t a great Okto.

Average frothy fizzy white head. Good lacing. Fully diminishing. Clear yellow body. Aroma: moderate malty, light bread, light yeasty, dough. Initial flavor: moderate sweet. Final flavor: moderate sweet light bitter; average duration. Palate: light medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation and metallic finish. cor amarela foge das diretrizes. Aroma não eh atrativo. Dulçor maltado também lembra mel. 8 s

Toasty roasted malts with a light hop finish. Sorry these notes were just for myself now I have to publish them with so many characters, hence this sentence. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a dark golden with a rather thick white head. Spicy aroma. Taste is sweet caramel malt, buttered biscuits, nutmeg and mild hop bitterness. Texture is a bit thin, but a good effort nonetheless.

Had this from the bottle. Head disperses quickly. Amber and clear. Nose is malt and caramel. Flavor is malty and well balanced. Smooth rich feel in the mouth. 5.7% alcohol is stronger than usual for an Octoberfest brew. F Avey---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I had it from the bottle. The taste is caramel, grain, and hops. This was nicely balanced. There was more hop bitterness than your average Octoberfest. I thought it set it apart from the normal. I liked it.

I thought Becks Octoberfest was the finest October beer until I tried Bluepoint Octoberfest. Excellent taste all around. No head is my only complaint.
