Point Oktoberfest brewed by Stevens Point Brewery - Stevens Point, WI
is an authentic Marzen Style Lager beer, a style reminiscent of the beers
originally brewed for the first Oktoberfest Celebrations in Germany during
the early 1800’s. Craft brewed using Hallertauer Hops and sweet Vienna
roasted malts results in a full flavored, finely balanced beer brewed in
celebration of this Oktoberfest season.
Beer Review from Beer Advocate
Appearance - Dark golden but not quite amber in color. Perfect clarity. Small
white head recedes to a small ring around the glass. No lacing.
Aroma - Light base/biscuit malt. The most mild of all munich malts. Hint of
Taste - Pleasant grassy hops enter as early as malt does here, a perfect dance
of balance. Malt has a great backbone of toastiness that sits in back and
gradually gives way to more and more noble hop flavor within. Finish leaves me
with modest bitterness, which is assertive enough to dry and quench, drawing me
in for another sip.
Mouthfeel - Medium-light body, medium-light carbonation, mild sweetness yet
drying making this all the more drinkable.
Overall - The only unusual aspect of this beer for me was the citrusy aroma I
experienced. A great oktoberfest otherwise all around. Plenty of character yet
not a palate crusher, one to please you through the entirety of festival days.
