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.

Enjoyed this for the styke. Nice orange haze pour with a small white head. Good malt, caramel nose that goes into the taste.

A nice nutty, malty Oktoberfest and a great example of the type. Nice copper, brown color with thin white head. Nice nutty malt flavor with the right amount of sweetness and German hop finish.

solidfunk (4135) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Very nice for style. Great grain profile and some nice and prominent German hops. Pours cloudy light brown with good head and lacing. The best one of these I’ve had this season. Tap at whole foods.

Maxbier (313) - Maryland, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle. Copper pour with 2-3 finger off white head. Aroma is lightly roasted malt. Flavors at caramel and roasted malt, bitterness is present for balance but this is essentially malty festbier.

Roser (34) - Virginia, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Appearance- nice bone white head that didn’t last too long. Minimal lacing. Clear, amber, copper. Smell- clean, malty, bready. Taste- bitter, spicy (ginger), caramel, malt. Mouthfeel- medium to full body. Very crisp. Overall- good, not great. Nothing offensive, but have had better Marzens. Worth a try, but wouldn’t have again. Cheers!

I’ve had many Oktoberfest/Octoberfest/Marzen beers, and this is one of the better ones. The beer produced this year (2014), is probably the best yet from Brooklyn. Pours a gorgeous deep gold with slight copper hues. Nice, creamy head that lasts, then fades off to some nice lacing. Nice brewery fresh aroma of barley and fresh baked bread. Some decent hops in the nose as well, just right for the style. Nice soft, barley malt flavor with just enough hop bitterness, the hops being unmistakably German. Wonderfully balanced.

12oz bottle from Orchard Fresh, Orchard Park, NY. Reddish amber with a ring of cream head; bready malt aroma; sweet caramel malt taste; with a lightly spiced bitterness to finish. A pleasant October beer.

UPDATED: AUG 23, 2014 A decent, sweet and fruity Oktoberfest with a thick, creamy texture. Pleasant but nothing out of the ordinary.
