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.

Where should I begin? Well, first off I drank this beer on draft at Dock’s Oyster Bar in the Upper West Side on Broadway. I quit my job and ran away to New York with a friend. We both went on a weekend bender. I was actually somewhat sober when I drank this beer. It was nothing amazing. For it’s style it wasn’t too bad. It washed my oysters down really well. But I was in New York and I was away from my ridiculous job. It was amazing. As for the beer? It was ok.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 1, 2005
Pretty red amberish colour. Aroma is nice, toasty and malty (bread). Flavour is pleasant and malty too. Not very interesting but none the less very nice - the bottle seemed very small... ;o)

GLowing red orange color with a moderate eggshell head. :Light malts with a hint of lemon in the aroma, also some raw potatoes. Slightly burnt sweet malts in the body.

EKGoldings (629) - Radford, Virginia, USA - OCT 29, 2005
This is a decent beer but not more than that. The malt is far too muted, the hops restrained, tastes watery, not much there.

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - OCT 27, 2005
Clear copper pour under a short and fluffy white head with minimal lacing. Classic malty aroma with notes of toasted bicuits and cereal. Flavors were very consistent with the malty aroma with the addition of some spice, grain and a little hoppy bite at the back of the tongue. Very clean and snappy finish. Overall, a solid Oktoberfest which doesn’t stray at all from what you would expect from the style but that conservative approach left a bit to be desired.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 27, 2005
Deep amber-orange-red hue with a medium, creamy white head. Cookie, dark bread, floral, herbal, dough, biscuit. Damn clean aroma. Moderately sweet, lightly acidic flavor. Lightly sweet, moderately bitter finish. Maybe a little astringent and a bit too bitter for the malt profile. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - OCT 26, 2005
Pours copper colored and a fast disappearing head. Malt and a bit of caramel in the aroma. Rather thin malt flavor with hints of spices and nut. Thin in the body and quite uninteresting. Not much of an oktoberfest!
