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.

Amber colour, off-white head that disappears quickly. Has a malty aroma. Taste is malty, a little sweet too and some bread tones. Some bitterness in the aftertaste. An easy drinking beer.

Not a bad beer, but not the best of the variety. Very lightbodied, kind of citrusy.

Nate (3827) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2005
Decent malty aroma, not overly complex but has a richness about it that you’ll find in some doppelbocks. Caramel and tofee, with a mild fruity hop note. Bit of carbonic acidity, too. Warm glowing medium-dark amber, hazy, with thin off-white head. Medium watery body with medium-high carbonation. Light carbonic burn going down. It starts fairly malty, with a good level of sweetness. Caramel and toffee, biscuit. The sweetness wears off quickly and some carbonic acidity takes over. Following this, there is a light to medium bitterness, not quite astringent. Finish is a bit watery and the aftertaste is a balance of leftover brown sugar residue and carbonic-chalky bitterness.

Poured an amber color with a thin off-white head. Sweet fruity malt aroma and flavor. More fruit than I would expect for this style. Thin finish.

Nutty and malty aroma, notes of bicuits and cookie dough. Copper colored body with a medium sized white head. Fruity and malty flavor, ends on a light fresh and hoppy note. Very spritzy and soft.
