Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Pours yellow orange red with a tiny head that disappears quickly. Smells of sweet darker roasted grain. Tastes of sweet grain with slight caramel. Beer is light bodied and easy drinking, good carbonation. Overall, a slightly above average beer.

Oktoberfest brewed by Blue Point Brewing Company, with an ABV of 5.50% This Oktoberfest pours out of a 12oz bottle into a pint beer glass . The color is a deep golden amber color with a small white head. There is some thin spotty lacing to this brew, the head an lacing go away fast. The smell is rich with grains and malts. There is also a nice amount of sweetness mixed with a little bit of hop bitterness. So far this is a nice inviting brew. Now for the taste , it is Bold with flavors. You first pick up on a sweetness mixed with mild grains and malts. Then the ending is a nice mild hop bitterness. This is a well put together Oktoberfest. I will give it this , this is one of the more sweeter Oktoberfest brews on the market, not saying that is a bad thing. There is nothing overpowering about this brew,it has a super nice balance to it. I can't get over how smooth this brew goes down. The mouth feel is Bold, Rich, Clean, Smooth, and Refreshing. Overall I'm going to give Oktoberfest a soild 4 out of 5. I would definitely look this brew up again giving the opportunity to. Blue Point Brewing Company, did a super nice job with this Oktoberfest brew.

12oz bottle. Poured out a clear, golden amber color with a small, off-white head of foam. It smelled of toasted caramel, toffee and floral notes. It was sweet and malty with a toasted caramel backbone.

I would place this in my top-tier of domestic Oktoberbests, one I would not regret purchasing a six-pack or two of. Fresh taste and full-bodied, rich malt with slight bitterness.

Golden body with some chill haze that clears as it warms. One and half finger white head that dissipates to a ring around the glass with some spotty but sticky lace.
Nice aroma of toasted grains, crisp apples from the yeast and some grassy and medicinal hops.
Toasted malts in the taste, some honey sweetness, green apple and mild, spicy hops. A bit muddled in the finish.
Medium body and active carbonation. Might mouth feel, crisp finish.

I was surprised by this little guy. Over all it is a nice marzen. Blue Point does ok with lagers.

look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Amber color with a fluffy thin head with short retention.
Aroma with notes of bread crust, somewhat toasted malts, grassy hops and white grapes.
Flavor with notes of toasted malts, just some caramel-biscuit, white grapes, floral and herbal hops and a bit of spice. Dry aftertaste with a moderate bitterness but making sure it finishes non-sweet.
Light to medium body with good carbonation.
Well-blended and easy to drink Marzen with a subtle but nice hop complexity that does not predominate over the style malt layers.
