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.

Tap. The look is clear, foamy beige colored head, and copper in color. The taste is malty, crackers, sweetness, caramel, soda, and toast. The smell is malty, bready, biscuits, caramel, ok.

Nocturne (879) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2014
Keg at The Font, Chorlton. Deep, dark copper shade and a nice head of foam. Faintly hoppy aroma. Crisp, caramelly taste, not much sweetness. A recurring jammy fruit presence lurking beneath. Mouthfeel is fairly creamy and body is strong. Nothing extraordinary but an impressive example of this style.

beerbill (3527) - Laurel, New York, USA - SEP 22, 2014
On draught at the sports bar in the Hilton Garden Inn in Troy, NY. Arrived a clear warm gold with a moderate white head that lasted through the first two sips and left scant lace. Pleasant aroma of malt with notes of caramel and mild toast. The flavor is very similar with malt, light caramel and mld toast. Very mild bitterness at the finish. Fairly smooth on the palate. Medium bodied.

bottle @ Chief Market / Lima OH --- Clear dark amber with a bubbly head cover, bands of lace. Taste is simple thin caramel malt gliding easily through the palate to a lightly bittered finish. Very little body, light taste for an Oktoberfest. Not one of Brooklyn’s better offerings.

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.

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.
