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 at a party. Thin inoffensive slightly tasty marzen. A little on the creamy side very lightly hopped. Light bodied, a tad on the flavorless side. Not a go-to but acceptable autumnal fodder.

Straightforward Oktoberfest that has a pleasant caramel and bread aroma and full, sweet malt taste. Perhaps Point’s best seasonal offering.

12 ounce bottle from Klineman’s in Delavan, WI (August 2016), drunk a bit above fridge temp from a lager glass. My first Oktoberfest of the season! Medium clear amber pour, large and tenacious off-whie head with fine lacing...simple sweet caramel-malty nose lacks the toasty notes I expect but not unpleasant...too sweet on the tongue though, and without enough body to back it up, this is immediately cloying and tough to drink, though a little bit of acerbic burnt/smoky character does show up to save it (somewhat). Not terrible, but not good either; I used half of this bottle for cooking and it was probably a wise choice.

GnarlyGnome (852) - Fairfield, Ohio, USA - NOV 25, 2015
Bottle: I don’t know if I should take the oxidation into consideration, since I bought this on closeout. The beer is dominated by a sweet malty breadiness, which I suppose is exactly what you look for in a Marzen.

Bottle, Pours copper with tan head. Nose is caramel malt, heavy malt, with some hops, tastes very malty, somewhat light on palate heft.

Frank (4043) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 30, 2015
Tasted blind: This is slightly cloudy w/ a foamy head, pretty light in color for an American Oktoberfest. It’s pretty mild in flavor but oversweet and sticky. It’s got a bit of oxidized malt and a combination of mineral and citrus notes that sit kind of strangely together. This is drinkable at best.

Fritz123 (1535) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - OCT 11, 2015
Poured at the Galaxy Oktoberfest. Light golden amber with a small head. Aroma is malts with toffee, caramel, and graham crackers with bread dough. Light spices. The taste is similar with a nice blend of the caramel and toffee. Moderate sweetness and carbonation. Not a bad marzen.

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

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.
