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.

Single from Three Cellars. Sweet and a bit weak light malts. Not bad though.

Pours light copper with a pretty good-sized head. Very little aroma beyond some vaguely earthy and toasty malts. Taste of yeast, bread, and toast. Light and crisp and creamy. Not a wower, but it hits all the basic examples of the style. Pleasant, easy drinker on a hot day.

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.

The body has a deep orange amber color with good clarity and lots of visible carbonation. From the aggressive pour I got a 1 inch collar of beige foam. This head quickly settles down to thin light layer. Lacing on the glass is spotty and slick. There is not much to the aroma. It has a light bready maltiness with some earthy and slightly grassy hops. The flavor is much more interesting. A good medium bodied base of bready malt starts things off. Deeper in there are some light toasted notes with very little sweetness. In the finish I get a lot of nutty and nut shell like notes along with fresh bread and earthy hops. This cleans up fairly quickly and somewhat dry. Carbonation and texture is right on.

Let’s see, I’ve got a few dozen beer ratings I could do from tasting notes written in my notebook and on various scraps of paper over the last 24 months or so, but what the hell, it’s Oktobefest season, so I’ll review three in that style that I’ve recently had that are new to me. First up is Point Oktoberfest, from a 12 ounce botle from Keller’s IGA, tasted on August 25, 2010. Slighty cloudy light gold/amber color, small off-white head, light sweet aroma, smooth light toasted malt flavor with a hint of pumpkin. Easy drinking--maybe too easy. If Point upped the amount of the good ingredients it could have a real contender instead of the pleasant diversion this beer represents now. Then again, this could be a good gateway beer for macro types. I took this to a party over the weekend, and a friend who tried it liked it because the flavor WAS light, unlike other marzens he’s had that are "too heavy". Yeah, he needs educating, but at least it was a start...

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.

Clear orange/golden color pour with a thin and almost non-existent head. Smells of sweet malts, slight crisp hops, and a touch of grain on the nose. These aromas translate to the palate as well with the cereal grains coming in near the finish. But it’s just too mild and the flavors that are there are too weak to provide much flavor at all.

Coppery brown with a small head that didn’t last at all. Nutty, roasted malt aroma. Surprisingly bitter bite at the start with some nutty malt coming through towards the end. Really a decent beer but a bit odd for a Marzen.

Alright marzen but not such a great brew overall. Aroma is a bit skunky and lightly hoppy.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 12, 2009
Clear orange amber with a large white head. Good retention, only temporary lace. Malt syrup aroma with a slight sulfur edge to it. Flavor has Munich malts: apple cider, nut, again spoiled by the sulfur edge. Medium body, some life in the carbonation on the palate.
