Backyard Oktoberfest Review:
Light amber in color with an off-white head. Smells nice and malty with hints of caramel. Medium carbonation with a nice bready taste with hints of hops that finishes clean and lingers with a slight sweetness.

Backyard Oktoberfest Review:
Poured a cloudy orange with an inch of off-white head. Had a more sweet aroma to it. The taste is a bit caramely and malty at first that finishes bitter.


Argo
Left Hand is well balanced and a bigger hopped Oktoberfest style. Great floral aroma. Mouthfeel is good but nothing great.


Eric Bramwell of White Pointer Brewery
Good off-white head. Good lacing - floral aroma. Good, but has a bit of an odd aftertaste. Good color - Good mouthfeel.


Kristin Pittro
Okay Oktoberfest beer, could be a little more malty.

Backyard Oktoberfest Review:
Poured an amber color with an inch of off-white head that reduced at a reasonable rate. The lacing on the beer is nice and stays with it almost the entire way. The small is slightly malty. The taste is very malty and grainy that finishes somewhat more bitter than I would have liked. It is nicely carbonated which makes it easy to drink. As it warms up a little it seems to become better.


Argo
Hinterland has the Oktoberfest essence. Nice attack with a bit of hop and malty smoothness. Has a great quality of a beer that can be consumed in large quantities. Put it in a Maß.


Eric Bramwell of White Pointer Brewery
Copper colored, some lacing, some floral aroma. Easy and drinkable. Mild aftertaste. Not overly sweet.


Kristin Pittro
A little sweet, but no amazing taste.

Backyard Oktoberfest Review:
Copper colored with good head retention of the 1 inch off-white head. Smells of slight malt and a bit of floral. Decent lacing. Medium Carbonation. Not an overwhelming taste but it is well balanced and finished smooth.


Argo
Not sure what Point was going for but it's nothing that reminds me of Oktoberfest. It's smooth but lacks the balance of malt, hoppiness and spice.


Eric Bramwell of White Pointer Brewery
Decent head, decent lacing. Copper colored. Grew on me, malty taste but not overly sweet.


Kristin Pittro
Very little amber beer, goes down smooth but not much flavor.

Backyard Oktoberfest Review:
A clear copper beer with an off-white head that reduced to lacing quickly. Good malty aroma. The taste is well balanced with medium carbonation making this an easy beer to drink and it is rather enjoyable.


Argo
Lakefront brings an Oktoberfest beer that resembles Weihenstephaner. It's got a more full flavored version of Weihenstephaner.


Eric Bramwell of White Pointer Brewery
Good head, good lacing. Nice copper colored - somewhat sweet. Nice flavor.


Kristin Pittro
A little flavor but lacks Oktoberfest flavor.
