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.

Bottle-pours a deep red copper color with a smallest head that leaves a slight amount of lacing. Good filling malt taste mixed a coying amout of sweetness , had a nice roasted aroma. A fine Oktoberfest. Asheville Wine 1.30

This is a beer I had last year. Memory is poor. Clear slightly dark amber body with small head. Caramel and earth. That’s about all I can say. Was ok.

Amber color with a decent white head. Very malty aroma with some hints of pear. Flavor is sweet and simple, perhaps too sweet for the style. Well made but plain.

A nice easy drinking Oktoberfest beer. Nothing spectatular, but nothing horriable either. Pours burnt red... pretty malty, no overwelming hop taste. nice frothy head, decent lacing. Not bad for an American Oktober brew.

This didn’t do it for me. I’m amazed at how often american bewers just miss the mark on oktoberfest beers. Malty but just somehow too flat. Not a beer I would want to hoist over and over in large steins.

MiP (15143) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 11, 2005
Bottle- Slightly malty aroma. Flavour also malty, and slightly cardboardy. Almost clear, dark orange/copper colour. High carbonation. Boring.

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2007 I’ve tried this beer twice and it was very different each time (bottle) which makes me wonder about consistency. Both times it was actually true to the style. Malty, in that Oktoberfest sort of way, not much hops. Happily lacks the sourness that some Oktoberfest brews have. The second time I had this beer it was much hoppier, in fact, it was probably the hoppiest Oktoberfest I’ve ever had, and as such, was my fav. Oktoberfest. I hope the second way is the way they continue to make it.

Nothing too creative, but a well balanced oktoberfest in my opinion. It left me wishing I had more, which is more than I could say for many other Oktobers I’ve tried.

(Bottle 35,5 cl) Very pretty, dark amber with a small, creamy off-white head. Vague aroma of caramel and aroma hops. Medium body, notes of caramel and alcohol with a very dry, almost crisp, bitter finish. 231005
