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.

Thick foamy starting head which domes over the rim of the glass. It settles to rim bubbles but leaves rings of lace. Dark gold to amber color. Clear.

Mild and malty aroma. There's a bit of raw barley grain as well.

The graininess is stronger here. This features two malts that I can pick up. There's the base pale malt and then there is a lighter crystal malt adding a sweet and nutty component to the flavor. Almost imperceptible bitterness in the swallow. Fairly rich body for the style but with an elevated carbonated level.

An ok version of Oktoberfest but disappointing knowing Blue Points lager brewing track record. It scored in 6th place in our recent Waterstone Beer Club Oktoberfest event.

This beer pours a light copper color with a beige head. Head was two fingers width and dissipated quickly.

The aroma has some light caramel notes perhaps with a bit of citrus.

The initial taste is of faint toasted malt. The middle is about the same, but the malt comes on strong at the end. Whatever the citrus was in the aroma is entirely absent.

The mouth feel is pretty thin with a slightly above average carbonation.

Overall, I would call this a light version of an Oktoberfest. If you are looking for a session Oktoberfest, then this might be the one for you. For me it was a bit watered down.

Solid but nothing special. Very light and drinkable though.

Not a bad Marzen but too light and carbonated for me to say that it's really good.
