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.

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.

Pours a pretty glorious burnt honeytone, initial fleeting off white head, and perfectly clear. Aroma is a little subdued, earthy, malty, bready notes, and slight yeast. It has a nice mouthfeel, and the base flavor is good, but I'd like something else going on. More spice, more booze, just some kind if hook to give it some character. As it stands, it just tastes like a watered-down Oktoberfest. This is another one from Boulevard for me that is almost there but is holding back. I worship Boulevard's Smokestack Series and their Nutcracker Ale but I haven't had a sixer of their tamer stuff that doesn't seem lacking in flavor. Many better Oktoberfests available - no disrespect to Bob.
