Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

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.

I like Oktoberfests, and Bob's '47 is a pretty good one. It's not quite as malty sweet as some, but it's got a well-rounded flavor and good color. Solid fall seasonal offering.
