Love this offering from Blue Point Brewery on Long Island. Pours a nice caramel color with a foamy tan head. Fair amount of lacing on the glass. Sweet, sweet malty caramel smell to it. The taste is also sweet, yet crisp and hoppy. This is a very easy beer to drink -- smooth, crisp, and very tasty.

I bought two 6 packs of this beer today and two of the Toasted Lager f
I love both and will suggest to Friends

This is actually one of the best domestic Octoberfest offerings I've ever had! This beer is super tasty for an Octoberfest! Not heavy on alcohol or hops aftertaste. Great blend of malt and fall spices. Medium head and lighter lacing! You can easliy get through a 6 pack of this. Awesome session beer! I want more!

Pours a clear clean orange light color. Slight head that dissapates to nothing. Smell is toasted oats and sweet malt. Taste follows. Sweet malt. Carmel notes and a sweet malty backbone. Super drinkable n true to style. Feel is toasty malt and a slight hop bite. Perfection.

A pre-release sample at Bellport Beer from one of the Blue Point brewmaster assistants. We poured the bottle into tasting glasses and noted the orange/gold tone to it as it came up with a sudsy head resembling milk froth. The subtle aroma of wheat and mild spices came to mind, but the first taste to follow was flowing with blond malts. I had to stop for a moment as the aftertaste was revealing most of the ornate elements. I couldn't reflect off of a beer judge to describe what I was tasting, but the base reminded me a delicious hefeweizen. I was sorry we only had two bottles, but I made mental note to buy a case of this upon its release this weekend. It was very easy to drink with nuances of the traditional Oktoberfest flavor to it.

Blue Point has never dissapointed with their seasonal offerings and their Oktoberfest is no exception. Easily the best I've had this fall. Not overbearingly malty while still delivering a very full flavor and medium finish. The aftertaste lingers just long enough for the next sip!

Poured from a 341ml. bottle, bottled August 19 (lot code 2312).

Appearance: Pours a peachy gold, an easy 3 finger head that slowly recedes and leaves a good wreath of lacing.

Smell: Sweet spices, brown sugar, earthy a bit, quite malty.

Taste: Malty though there is some earthy, mineral bitterness. Some nutmeg as well as a good dose of spices that are just right.

Mouthfeel: Obviously more on the malty side yet there is a slight bitter edge. Real well balanced and pleasant.

Overall: A very flavorful Oktoberfest. Grab some while there's still some left.

Bottle with twist cap. No visible date.

A: Moderately heavy head. Amber/Red color.

S Caramel aroma

t: Well carbonated. Malty caramel like toffee flavor.

Very drinkable Oktoberfest. Somewhat lighter on the flavor as most American Octoberfests beers. A new favorite of mine.

OKTOBERFEST STARTS TOMMORROW!!!
blue point's offering pours out a a malty amber copper tone, capped by a nice two finger head in a straight pour. Looks good
Smells of malts, a wheat-like sourness, toasted grains, oakiness, lots of up-front maltiness. Good authentic nose for the style.
Flavor is a little more tart than the smell. More yeasty tartness, malts, a citric-lemonlike bite, more on the carbonationed side. I like the bite of this beer, as many American brewers seem to lean on the sweet side for thier oktoberfest biers, this one stays biting, lighter an highly drinkable.

Bought a six of this along with a six of S.A. Octoberfest.

Pours a nice deep honey gold and raises a good head of off white foam. Head dissapated shortly after.

Has a slight yeasty aroma. Nothing else here but that could be my sometimes crappy sense of smell.

Taste is another story. Nice and malty, somewhat sweet. Smooth and very drinkable. Finely carbonated. Mouthfeel is a good bit north of thin.

This is becoming one of my favorite styles to session and the Blue Point version will be a repeat purchase for me.
