From 9/11/12 Tasting Notes

Poured from 12 oz bottle into Cheers mug. Served chilled...

A) Lighter amber with a finger of soapy foam. This settled fairly rapidly to a wispy dusting. No lacing noted.

S) Nice sweet malty/toasty aroma, light caramel, and some hops, which provide some grass/flower petal to the nose.

T) Near the nose... Very nice flavored Marzen. Bready, toasted cereal, light caramel sweetness, and nice grassy/herbal/floral hops on the backend. Enjoyable...

M) Lighter medium body, and I found the carbonation to be fairly light as well. This was a super smooth Oktoberfest, with a superb finish, very clean. Taste+Mouthfeel on this create high drinkability.

O) I came away pretty impressed with this offering from Point. This O-Fest is right up there with a few of my favorites for this time of year. I would definitely go for this again. Glad to recommend...

12 oz poured in pint glass

A- Amber in color, 2 finger white foaming head which quickly disappears to think ring around rim of glass.

S- Toasted grains and malts with sweet notes and subtle hops

T- Sweet malty and toasted grain flavor upfront and ends with subtle hop crispness
M- Decent carbonation, smooth and crisp.

O- Of the two Oktoberfests I had this evening, this is by far better than the other (O’so O-toberfest), but not the best I have ever had. A good beer to have on a crisp August day, but it’s not an offering that I would long for when out of season.

Pours a brownish orange with a small white head that fades fast. The smell is nice malty and toasted grain, subtle sweet and spice. Taste is a nice sweet rich malt, and sticks around, finishes with a subtle hop flavor that calms the malt and sweet. The mouthfeel is smooth and rich, and the flavors are deep, a nice crisp medium mouthfeel. Overall a great beer, has all the elements I was expecting with a better flavor. Worth checking out for the Oktoberfest fans.

I poured a bottle into a mug.

Appearance- Golden - amber color with a fingers worth of quickly disappearing head. Very light amount of spotty lace.

Smell- Grain, toast, and the faintest hint of hops.

Taste- Sweet malt at the start with notes of toast. Slightly bitter finish.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied with a fair amount of carbonation. Just a tad dry.

Overall- Not bad, but I have had better. I wouldn't go out of my way to seek this out.

12 oz twist-off bottle poured into a Hofbraü maaskrug.
5.15% ABV, number on neck.

A - Crystal clear and light amber, the cool beer forms a chill haze on the maaskrug mug that's filled to the brim with off-white foam. Slowly crumbling away, the loose bubbles leave some spotty lace on the pint.

S - Plenty of carbonation brings the aroma forwards while the dense head traps it. This Oktoberfest has Munich and Vienna malt written all over it with it's toast and grainy maltiness. Hops are absent save for their balance.

T - Munich and Vienna malt provide a good toast and bready sweetness that lingers throughout the dry beer. Faint noble hops add just a pinch of herbal notes on the finish.

M - Clean, crisp, and dry, Point's Oktoberfest is a medium-light bodied session beer that finishes with a light bite of carbonation and almost demands to be drank in liters.

O - Perfectly accompanying the onset of fall with it's toasted malt flavors, Point's Oktoberfest is an easy drinking beer that would be comfortably in both the hands of a back yard relaxer, or loud, fun festival-goer. In both places, this beer is smooth and delicious with an understated complexity.
