3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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).

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle - Light clear amber pour with a thin white head. Grainy, medicinal nose with a sticky sweetness and a sharp metallic note. The taste is better: lightly sweet caramel malt with a touch of nuttiness and spice transitioning into a lightly hopped malty finish. A bit watery both in body and flavor. Has a weird fruity flavor in there that I can’t place. Had the Ayinger Okto earlier in the week--this one isn’t in the same ZIP code.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle - Poured redish copper color with white head that hung around for a few minutes. Aroma was nice, kinda like a Jolly Rancher. Tasted dry with a wine like feel, not bad if you enjoy watered down wine. Overall I was fairly happy with Point’s version of this style beer.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
This pours a copper color with a large white head. This smells like PBR with a touch of caramel. The flavor is like PBR with a touch of caramel as well. This is no octoberfest, this is swill with food coloring.

six pack from the local rip and run. Twist off cap, glad I used electrical tape for Mr. Coldbrewky. Pours a lovely translucent amber capped by a billowy off white head with good retention. Nose has a nice bread character. Taste follows in order with light bitterness and flowers. Body is a bit weak and watery. Tasty and easy drinking none the less.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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)

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle) Pours a solid amber color with a small, whispy white head. Aroma is quite sweet. Caramel malts and some light vanilla notes as well. Flavor is what you would expect from the aroma. Some toffee and possibly a touch of hazelnut in there as well. Nothing too memorable, but certainly a drinkable and refreshing beer that is quite good this time of year.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Deep amber body with orange highlights. Big beige head, slowly diminishing The aroma was grainy with notes of toast and a hint of DMS and caramel. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture and lively carbonation. Average Oktoberfest, but better than the other two beers I’ve had from this brewery.
