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) CanIHave4Beers (4194) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - NOV 5, 2009
Pours a light orange color with a small head. The aroma has mild nutty notes and a bit of graininess. The flavor is malty and grainy with some light fruity sweetness and some light nuttiness, light, light, light. wheelz843 (233) - Grand Island, New York, USA - NOV 2, 2009
bottle. pours a copper color with little head. has a sweet, hoppy aroma.has a nice , malty flavor with a dry, warm finish. kind of bland tasting, not as good as other oktoberfests. webbcreative (111) - , Oklahoma, USA - NOV 1, 2009
Poured light copper color, with 2 finger white head. A = faint toasty-ness, not too much else going on here. T = little bit more of the toasty flavor, but its pretty weak. The hops barely show up here, just enough to keep it from being unbalanced to the sweet side. mouthfeel is maybe a notch below medium.
Overall this is just a really typical offering from Point, which average at best. Seems like every aspect of this beer needs to be bumped up a notch or two. This is just to light overall for me. Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - OCT 27, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2010 Re-Rate: 11-16-2010: 12oz bottle from the Sahara Mart in Bloomington, IN. Pours a crystal clear, golden-orange-copper colored body with a finger-width, frothy, white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing throughout. Aroma is some sweeter caramels with a light grainy toast. A hint of earth, honey, nuts, and bread. Flavor is solid. Caramels, a light grain, honey, toffee, bread, some nuts, a light toast, and florals. Finishes with a light, balancing earth that helps dry this out before leaving a light bitterness and a medium-length aftertaste. Very smooth, light-medium body and soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent Oktoberfest. Slightly better than I remember. Very smooth, pretty flavorful, and easy drinking. Not bad at all. (6,3,7,3,13=3.2). Original Rating: 10-27-2009: 12oz bottle. Pours a crystal clear, orange-copper body with a thin, off-white, fizzy head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is sweeter caramels with a light grain, some earth, honey, and a distinct malty apple fruit. No real hops or toasty malts. Flavor is more earthy with a dry nutty, light toast to go along with a sweeter caramel. Finishes with a light hop bitterness and lingers with a short, malty sweet, semi toasty, earthy aftertaste. Light bodied and very smooth with a nice, crisp ending. Overall, a decent tasting Oktoberfest with a nice, crisp flavor. Not the best, but not the worst. (5,3,6,3,11=2.8).

Bottle. Pours an orange amber body with a yellow white head. Sweet malt notes, light earth tones, caramel and cider notes. Overall it rather bland but session able. Eh. iamqueensblvd (247) - , Iowa, USA - OCT 4, 2009
Pours an orange color with a white head that just barely hangs on throughout the drink. Classic lager flavor. maybe a bit of subtle sweetness to differentiate it from a bud. nothing special.not horrible...not great. eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - SEP 26, 2009
The first sip made me cringe and think, "Ohh..... terrible!" The subsequent drinks did nothing to correct that impression, and in fact only intensified the horrific flavor mess this brewery decided to bottle.. A bitter dry metallic flavor that made me really want a Bud Light. milljam (682) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 22, 2009
Aroma has notes of caramel, malt and lager yeast. Flavor is similar. Nothing bad, but there wasn’t anything that stood out as good. Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 17, 2009
Bottle courtesy of canihave4beers. Pours copper with a white head. Smells of caramel, earthy. Tastes earthy with some light, spicy elements on the finish.
