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.

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.

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.

Slight oxidation, not really that bad for a Oktoberfest although it still has that spice taste that makes American Oktoberfests inferior to German standards of the style.

jcr (2644) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - OCT 7, 2011
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.

Spot on for a Marzen style beer. Not my personal favorite, but thats more the style’s fault.

Bottle: I don’t know if I should take the oxidation into consideration, since I bought this on closeout. The beer is dominated by a sweet malty breadiness, which I suppose is exactly what you look for in a Marzen.

12 ounce bottle from Klineman’s in Delavan, WI (August 2016), drunk a bit above fridge temp from a lager glass. My first Oktoberfest of the season! Medium clear amber pour, large and tenacious off-whie head with fine lacing...simple sweet caramel-malty nose lacks the toasty notes I expect but not unpleasant...too sweet on the tongue though, and without enough body to back it up, this is immediately cloying and tough to drink, though a little bit of acerbic burnt/smoky character does show up to save it (somewhat). Not terrible, but not good either; I used half of this bottle for cooking and it was probably a wise choice.

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.

12 oz. twist-off bottle, no freshness date, sampled in a lager glass. Poured a clear golden hued amber with a frothy off-white head, decent retention, a little ringed sticking at the top of the glass. Aromas of lightly roasted caramel, nutty, traces of sweet fruitiness and floral hops. Smooth medium-light body, crisp and dry, easy quaffability. Sweet tasting, lightly roasted caramel with some pale malt sweetness. Sweet green grape fruitiness in the middle. Mildly spicy hops along with a dry nuttiness coming out at the end. A passable Oktoberfest at an affordable price. Won’t knock your socks off, but will do in a pinch.
