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.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 26, 2006
Cloudy light amber with an aroma of pear and bready malts. Initial quick bitterness leads to sweet juicy malts. Finish is dry, reminiscent of baking bread. Easy to drink, kind of thin, simple.

bfeldmann (1050) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JAN 18, 2006
"Poured a copper color with almost no head to speak of, but left okay lacing. Sweet malts, aroma. Tasted to much of malts, over powering. Mouthfeel was carbonated. "

Thanks to beeryum for this one Pours a dark, hazy amber with a quckly diminishing head. The flavor is slightly malty with some tongue tingle. This is a nice session brew.

Bottle, at home. Dark orange with beige head, immediately gone, modest lacings. Aroma moderate malty, moderate to heavy hoppy. Flavor moderate sweet, moderate to heavy bitter, long duration. Light to medium body, oily, soft carbonated. Not a typical Oktoberfestbeer!

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 26, 2005
Very clear copper color pour with a thin wispy white head. Sugary caramel candy grainy malty aroma has a touch of dry European hops. Starts with some sweet, but thin, grainy malty body and some mild hoppy balance along with a hint of tartness. Not very true to style, but not all that bad either.

12z bottle. Amber golden hue. Spotty white head. Caramel malt flavor. Bread and slight citrus. Nice slick body with a strong maple caramel flavor. Sweet. With a crisp, citrusy hop fiinish. Somewhere, I get rubber, and citrus and floral aspects. Good example.

Bottle. Slight sweet malty aroma, with a nice sweet roasted malt flavor with a hint of caramel. One of the better Oktoberfest beers I tried this past fall.
