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.

I had it on tap. It pours a nice amber color with a decent head and some lacing. The aroma is caramel and biscuit malts. The taste is caramel, bread, nutty, and a hint of hops on the finish. It’s pretty balanced and smooth. I thought this was a good interpretation of the style.

BBD 2/16. Pours a medium amber with a nice garnet hue. Outstanding head volume, lacing and retention. Outstanding light nose of rich biscuit with a touch of caramel. As it warms, a grainy character emerges underneath with a touch of raisin. Light body with only a hint of smoothness. Slightly above normal carbonation with a nice effervescent burst in the middle and a nice prickly finish. The flavor profile is good, but lacks complexity and balance. It begins with a clean grainy flavor that lacks the sweetness of biscuit or caramel. The middle is slightly bitter with a touch of herbal hop flavor. Missing is a balanced sweetness. The finish is a slow fade of the middle.

Misses the mark a little for me. Slightly vegetal smell and taste under the caramel bread and toffee malt. A weak feel as well that doesn’t get better as it warms.

Pours copper-burnt orange with a thin tan head which fades to just a little lacing.Aroma is of bready malts, sweet malts, fruitiness, light spicy hops, and some light grassy hops. Taste is bready toasted malts, sweet malts, caramel, fruits, spicy hops, grassy hops, and some toffee notes. Has a medium body with semi creamy mouthfeel and a mostly sweet, medium finish. Overall, a decent Oktoberfest that is very drinkable and pretty authentic.

355 ml bottle. Pours an unclear, copper colour with an average beige head that laces. Sweet malty aroma with caramel and bread. Sweet flavour of roasted malt and caramel with a bready note in the finish. Light body with a watery texture and soft to almost flat carbonation. A pretty easy drinking brew.

Pours a sweet red and trnaslucid liquid with good head retention. Very nice aroma of malt, caramel and maple syrup. Taste is sweet and malty. Finishes crisp and bitter. Medium body, almost full. Oktoberfests would be great with this beer.

12oz bottle purchased in Hong Kong. Lovely reddish amber colour, thick body with a good white coloured head. Lightly carbonated. Aroma of sweet fruits. Sweet taste of malt, plum and lightly hopped. A little too sweet for my palate but OK.

Super malty and almost no hoppy flavor. Not a balanced beer at all. Had it let in the season so that might be part of it as well. Had at river roast in Chicago ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
