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.

Pours light orange with a thin head. Not much happening in the aroma. Tastes like...beer. Nothing special at all. Malty, slight toast. Medium carbonation. Finish is brief. Tried it with 5 other guys, against 6 other Oktoberfest beers. This was the unanimous least favorite.

12 ounce bottle - $1.29 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia. Appearance: Pours a clear, orange-amber body with a finger or two of off-white suds. A few glass-clinging smears of lace on the descent. Smell: Sweetish nose, primarily bready, but with some toasty and nutty accents to it and a far-off hint of light caramel syrup. Herbal, spicy, earthy Noble hops. Taste: Maltiness tasting of ever so slight toasted bread brushed with a coating of sugary caramel. Lightly nutty. Faint fruitiness. Spicy, earthy German hops with ample supporting bitterness. The initial, light nuttiness grows a bit as you near the drying, reasonably crisp finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation. Drinkability: A standard, simple, but easy-drinking O-fest (at a decent price) to kick-start the weekend.

Aroma is of sweet bready malt. Taste is also a bready, but almost roasted. Overall not the best, but not bad either.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2012 Clear, orange in color with a thin white head. Aroma of caramel malt, biscuit, slightly earthy. Flavor is spicy, late bitterness. Quite smooth.

vikingguy (1106) - Carver, Minnesota, USA - OCT 28, 2010
Pours and amber/copper color with tall white head. Fragrant caramel malt aroma. Spicy sweet caramel malt, bready and a little roasty/nuttiness. Good balancing hops. A little thin but very drinkable. Another great Marzen!

cheap (6016) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 25, 2010
Smells ok, a little of that typical point olfactory. Looks a little viscous just sitting there with its thin slow stream of bubbles; pale with a little brown. Rather strong initial flavors, then it mellows a little. Somewhat good sizzle on the CO2, fades rapidly. Certainly seems to have more than 5.15 here in the percent department. Eh, a little btter medicine finish.

gururyan (727) - Stillwater, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 22, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2014 Poured from bottle, a bit light in the body but overall I thought it tasted pretty good and I enjoyed it. Wish the ABV was more like a 6.5 though.

jgb9348 (6438) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 13, 2010
Clear amber body with a non-existent head. Aroma of VERY funky malt, caramel, cardboard and more funk. Light-bodied; Candy sweetness up front with some old malt, a touch of cardboard and a very light caramel flavour at the end. Aftertaste is very mild with only the malt and light funky sugars coming through. Overall, a pretty subpar beer and one especially weak for the style. No spices, no complexity and frankly no good malt tastes even! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Norm’s in Vienna, Virginia on 04-October-2010, sampled in Newport News, Virginia on 13-October-2010.

Bottle. Pours amber with a thin off white head. Lightly sweet malty aroma with some toasty bready notes. The flavor is clean and malty with some light sweet and toasty notes. Decent.

12oz bottle. shared with some friends around a fire on a cool oktober evening. clear orange under a small white head. blend of mild hops and toasty malt. flavor is lightly toasted with a floral hop addition. balanced perfectly and really relaxing to drink. a bit lighter than usual. the hops give it a nice floral finish. light body.
