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.

12 oz twist off brown bottle. The appearance for this one is a dead ringer for a Shiner Oktoberfest, It is orange/amber in color, perhaps a bit lighter with a crappy fizzy white head that dissipates in about 10 seconds. The smell on this oen is decent for an oktoberfest, there is a soapy scent hat is kind of off putting, but overall it is a clean smelling version of the style. It doesn’t bring a ton of maerzen character but enough. This one is also unnofensive int he flavor, though im picking up some diacetyl. It is nutty, caramally, with a sourdough character. It isn’t too sweet like a lot of midrange oktoberfests. There is a light hop bitterness, nothing offensive, but nothing flattering. The mouthfeel seems a bit weak, but it is nice and drinkable. A middle of the road oktoberfest form a brewery known for brewing some crap. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 09-06-2010 02:08:13

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 4, 2011
Drank from 12oz can. Very low on carbonation, kind of a cheap skunky texture. Aroma is bread, hint of pickle. Some spice. Savory light sweet taste. Got substantially better once I started eating the Subway BMT I was grilling. Palate isn’t even an issue anymore. Definitely only drink this is you are consuming some sort of food. Drinkable.

Rather light and a bit hoppy for the style. Disappointing... but it’s point, so what’s new?

blankboy (7577) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 14, 2011
Several draught pints. pours a deep orange-amber with a small diminishing fizzy off-white head. Aroma is quite vegetal along with caramel malt, light hops, some light sugary sweetness and some toffee. Flavour of caramel malt, light hops, light vegetal notes, apples and a light bitter finish. Average to medium bodied. As far as Oktoberfest beers go its pretty good.
