Hangover (1120) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - SEP 18, 2012
Orange pour with a frothy white head. Aroma has some vegetable, bread and faint metallic notes. Nice carbonation. Flavor is actually pretty malty, with medium sweetness and a lingering vegetable aftertaste. Bitter finish. Middle of the road for a fest beer but not bad.

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.

thegreenrooster (4092) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 10, 2016
Pour is a clear copper with a small white head. Aroma is a chewy marzen malt. Not much there but going in the right direction. Flavor is a decent bready malt with a bit of sweetness. Not a full heavy malt mouthfeel, this is more of a marzen lite. Decent but a bit thin. Better than the score on here.

12 oz bottle. Pours deep golden with tall, long-lasting, fluffy white head. Aroma is of grassy hops and bready malt. Body is medium and slightly crisp. Herbal hops and biscuit malt nicely balanced on the palate. Finish is long and dry. Good brew.

burg326 (5389) - Florida, USA - DEC 18, 2015
Poured a deep mahogany color with aromas of sweet malt and light toast. Flavors are the same, thin, with some toastiness, light nuttiness as well, nothing special.

bottle @ Chief Market / Lima OH --- Clear dark amber color, off-white head, spots and dots of lace. Taste is malt that turns sweeter in a very lightly fizzed swallow, followed by thin hops in a medium finish. Nothing bad here, just nothing really good, either.

Smell is quite wealthy with a nice about finished. Taste flush your tongue with my sweet breads ginger some other stuff that I can’t pinpoint. Flavor lingers on the tongue just a tad very enjoyable multi flavor. Makes me want to try other things besides ipas.

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2015 At Het Haasken in Diest, the owner of which apparently got a bottle from a friend who visited New York and was kind enough to sell it to me. Stable, snow white, thin head over a cristal clear, orange blonde beer with lively fizz. Aroma of caramel, toasted bread (even ’croque monsieur’), ’natural’ iron, bread crust, cooked corn, some burning rubber (DMTS?). Clean, sweet and sourish onset, no esters as expected from a lager, smooth caramelly maltiness with toasted edge, lightly bready, soft herbal hop accent far away in the finish along with a plastic-like chemical accent. Feels rather industrial, I had way better examples of this straightforward malty lager style - from Germany.
