Our fall seasonal beer, Bob’s ’47 Oktoberfest is a medium-bodied, dark amber brew with a malty flavor and well-balanced hop character. With this Munich-style lager we salute our friend Bob Werkowitch, Master Brewer and graduate of the U.S. Brewer’s Academy, 1947.

A: 4 - Pours a beautiful amber color with minimal head.

S: 3 - Malt, minimal hops. Very mild scent.

T: 3 - You taste a lot of the malt, and the hops are much more present than they were on the nose. It is a nice balance between the two. There's really not too much there in my opinion. I haven't had many Oktoberfest beers, so I'm a little uneducated on the style, but this isn't particularly blowing me away.

M: 4 - Medium body, quite carbonated. Very drinkable.

O: 3.5 - It's enjoyable, but again, really nothing to remember in my opinion; a C beer.

On tap for pint night at McNellie's OKC. Pours a clear amber with a foamy white head. Lots of carbonation rising from the glass. A faint aroma of bread and malt. That's good because malt is what you get. There's a bit of caramel and just a touch of hops on the end. Medium mouth with decent carbonation. It's not bad, but just doesn't have the depth of the really good Oktoberfest offerings.

This beer is very poor. Octoberfest should have some fall flavor, but this beer has none. To sum it up, it is highly carbonated, with a slight biscuit taste. No hops, no pumpkin, no nothing. Probably the worst beer I've had in the fall season. Bought a 6 pack but will NEVER buy another. Sam Adams Octoberfest destroys this Boulevard offering.

Love the bottle. Classic styling and label.

Pours the correct color, lovely amber brown/orange. Slightly light head but almost 2 fingers.

Aroma is clearly malt heavy with a nice toasty balanced nose.

Carbonation is perfect and mouthfeel medium which it should be for this type of beer.

Magic combination of malt chemistry produces a lovely balanced character of toasted and creamy/sweet flavors.

Finishes clean and smooth, begging for another. Very drinkable and a great session beer as any Oktoberfest should be. One of my favorites.
