COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brooklyn Oktoberfest was introduced in 2000. It is true to the original German style, full-bodied and malty, with a bready aroma and light, brisk hop bitterness. When Crown Prince Ludwig of Bavaria wanted to celebrate his wedding engagement in 1810, he did what any good Bavarian prince would--he threw a beer festival. Bothe the festival and the special beer served there became known as Oktoberfest. Brewed from the finest German malt and hops, Brooklyn Oktoberfest is true to the original style, fullbodied and malty, with a bready aroma and light, brisk hop bitterness.

Hazelnut. Malty. A little sour. Looks fine. Amber red. Off white head dissipates quickly. Taste is liken the smell. Lighter. Nutty. A little sour. Grape. Palate is medium with a dry finish. Pretty much the epitome of what a generic beer would taste like (which is not nessecarily a bad thing) nothing special nothing bad.

NeuroPliny (159) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 19, 2014
Clear copper in colour with off-white head. Nose subdued but there are notes of nutty malt. Flavour is subtle nutty, toasty malts but I prefer bolder notes. The mouthfeel is thin. Blah.

From bottle. Pours dark Amber. Not much of taste. A bit watery and no real bitterness. Slight nutty taste. Not one of the better of style I've ever had ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Lazy Dog Macon. Pours hazy brown with white head. Aroma of malts, wheat and fruit. Tastes of bread with sweetness at the end. Notes of hops and toffee. Not that crazy about it.

joejames (142) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Bottle to shaker glass. Pours deep amber red. Two finger quick head, little lacing. Aroma of bread, toasted malt and light fruit. Taste is malty sweet, slightly bitter earthy hops. Light body, medium small bubble carbonation, clean mouth feel. Finishes bittersweet with notes of biscuit, toffee, nuts. Not the best for the style, but certainly not the worst.
