12 oz bottle into a mug.

Pours a crystal clear gold, with several fingers of rich and foamy off-white head. This retains with a thick finger or so that leaves back heavy looking swathes of sudsy lacing. The aroma smells sweet and bready, with an odd lemon tartness thing going on and a bit of a medical feeling tinge as well. Just a touch of leafy spice hangs on the edges and is what gives this any kind of liveliness in the nose.

The taste is sweet toast and light toffee with a citrus presence that has a tart edge to it but isn’t nearly as lemon-like as the nose was. It’s definitely got a tang to it though. This finishes dry, earthy and spicy on the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a softer bubbly feel to the carbonation that just kind of flops around in the mouth.

I don’t know what happened here. Unbalanced sweetness, off-notes, a soft, limp body and lemon? Ugh! I expected much, much more from this beer and didn’t get it. This is unfortunately one of the lesser American O-Fests that I’ve had.

A - Copper colored pour. Beige colored foam. Foam settles quickly. Minimal lacing.

S - Scents of bready malt, dried fruit, and butterscotch.

T - Nice flavors. First sip had an initial sweetness of apricot and figs. The light malt flavor came through but was more of a background flavor. Finish had a slight candy sweetness.

M - Drinkable. This is an easy drinking marzen that goes well with food. Not overbrearing at all, though for someone who enjoys a hearty oktoberfest this may seem a little thin. Slight carbonation is noted.

O - Pleasantly surprised by the local folks. This is a darned good fall seasonal from Blue Point that I'd gladly have again.

12 oz. bottle.

Brilliantly clear light copper body. Good inch of dense, creamy, light beige head. Some nice lacing. Doughy cookie malts, caramel, cooked carrots, toasted grains, and some spicy hops.

Lightly toasted malts up front. Faint soapy-ness follows, briefly, before sweetish, caramel-y malts take over. Cookie dough and caramel play together nicely. Cooked carrots and vegetbales into the finish. Lingering sweetish malts and spicy noble hop bitterness. Moderate body, with a gently carbonated, smooth feel. A very solid Ofest!

12oz. Orangy/gold pour, thin layer of bubbly white.

Aroma, a bock like fruitiness. Some caramel maltyness.

Taste, thankfully not quite as fruity, but there is still some apple. Some toffee and a nice toasted malt note. Finishes with a little tea like herbalness.

There is just a little too much carbonation. Otherwise it is on the lighter side and drinks pretty easy. Maybe just a tad thin. Plenty good at the price point.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into my Bruery tulip. Picked up a 6 pack of this at Food Emporium for $11 today.

a - Pours a somewhat transparent orange-amber color with moderate carbonation evident and one finger of fluffy white head. Head leaves a little bit of lacing on the glass.

s - Smells of toasted malts, burnt malts, bready malts, and some light sweet fruity malts. Not a ton going on here but not bad.

t - tastes of fruity malts, apples, toasted malts, bready malts, biscuit, grains, and burnt malts. More fruit than the nose and a little bit sweeter. A step up from the nose for me.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Pretty easy to drink.

o - Overall an above average marzen, though nothing crazy. Nice sweet fruits in the taste and easy to drink. Worth checking out if you see it and are looking for a marzen, but nothing to seek out.

A - light, transparent amber with a big, soft, frothy, white head that has decent retention

S - caramel, a bit sweet, a little sugary

T - caramel, a bit bitter, a little sweet, faintly toasty

M - medium bodied, well carbonated, a bit crisp

This is a nice, drinkable version of an Oktoberfest. It has nice flavor and a solid body. It's worth a try if you're looking for a good Oktoberfest beer.

12 oz bottle.

First had two one the beach, having one now pouted into a glass.

A - copper, very clear beer. the look leaves a little to want.

S - I can't really derive much of a smell at all from this. some malt sweetness, disappointing. had to pour another one extra head to prove to myself the lack of smell.

T - Drinkable. Not my favorite word to describe a beer, but it is what it is. First taste is very clear, smooth, and that Munich malt sweetness, a little stronger than I would like in an Oktoberfest beer. Some soft nuttiness is in the middle of the beer, giving it a nice flavor not to it, balancing the sweetness some. Finishes with tiny, barely noticeable taste of hops.

Mouth - clear, smooth, very drinkable

O - Good beach beer! Thats about all I can say for it, drinks fast and easy, just disappoints me. I was in Germany for 2 months this summer, and in Munich for the end of it, and I just compare all Oktoberfest beers and the like to the Dunkels there, and it just is too light and too sweet in comparison.
