Clear dark gold,short head,slight froth with light lacing.
Aroma is grainy,sweet,some toast,carmel,some ripe fruit like orange.Vanilla.
Taste is same but with some pepperyness.Carmel toast or slight roast. Crisp kind of tangy, light citrus finish. Not bad. DBob5150 (236) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - NOV 15, 2013
This time a year I’m a sucker for a good Marzen and this one delivers. As for appearance it’s nothing exceptional; orangish-amber body with a thin head head that fades quick. Aroma is roast hops with caramel and toffee. Taste is full bodied, toffee, hops, caramel with a hint of coffee. Finishes clean. I liked it. Darkmagus82 (2303) - - OCT 1, 2014

Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a light copper/ orange amber color with a one finger of fizzy white head. The head fades fast at first, but then slows at is gets smaller, eventually fading to leave a light level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is heaviest of lightly toasted malt and a good amount of caramel sweetness. These aromas are the bulk of the smell, but other lighter aromas of a grassy and toffee aroma are there as well, overall creating a sweet and lightly roasted aroma.
Taste – The taste begins with some bready flavors with some caramel sweetness. As the flavor advances the bready flavors gain a bit of roasted nature toward the middle and the end. Along with the change in the bready flavors, there are also changes in the sweet flavors as well. The caramel at the front is joined by some toffee flavors in the middle and a lighter fruit flavor at the end. With all these transitions, an herbal and grassy flavor comes to the tongue more toward the end of the taste, leaving a decently roasted but moderately sweet and grassy flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average to slightly lighter side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the average side. Both are rather appropriate for the style and quite appropriate for the flavor profile of the beer.
Overall – A rather average Oktoberfest. A decent blend of malt, roast, sweet and hop creating a rather easy drinking brew overall. propsync (35) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 20, 2014
This O-fest has a little more hop presence than others. Otherwise malty and sweet as expected. Tasty.

Thanks to Skyview. Copper color with no head. Slight banana aroma and taste. Not much in the way of grains and not what I’d expect from an "Octoberfest", but not bad.

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. mcjay (463) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 28, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2009 Marzen style, light golden brown color with a thin, light tan head. Slight hop aroma with a hint of caramel. Rich, roasted malt taste with a little hoppy bite. A well balanced and tasty Oktoberfest beer. wheatfreak (41) - Marinette, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 22, 2008
Has a detectable flavor of spices, yeast and roasted malts with a slightly dry hoppy finish. A little thin, but pulls off the Marzen style reasonably well. Not technically one of the better examples of the style, but worth a try if one wants a sessionable autumn beer. 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. jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 11, 2011
Pours a beautiful copper gold with a decent sized mostly lasting off white head with lots of carbonation. Nose is mostly malt with a hint of hops. Fairly creamy texture, this Octoberfest has a malt flavor but the taste is not as pronounced as similiar beers. A light hops note on adds a pleasant finish.. Pairs well with ham and swiss on rye.
