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.

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - SEP 15, 2005
Bottled. This is not true to the original German style. Amber coloured. Weak minerally cardboard aroma. Weak flavour. with malty notes. Very thin. Light bodied. A ridiculous attempt of a wonderful German beer style. This is a weak crap lager.

Dorwart (2419) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - SEP 8, 2005
Thin Foamy head. Reduces quickly. Light bready aroma with some malts and biscuits. Color is a dark orange. Flavor is malty and slightly bitter. Pretty normal but with a nice plesant palate. Goes down very easy. Finish is slightly creamy with a slight dry and bitter finish. A decent brew for the nice cool weather.

Most people think an oktoberfest is supposed to be heavy and super dark. Well this beer is is the most drinkable, beautifly colored, and an excelent pallet. I mainly enjoy the porters for the dark flavor and the rich aroma as well as the drinkability. Either way I haven’t had much else in a a long time. September is just too short.

robpet (98) - Stone Mountain, Georgia, USA - SEP 3, 2005
Decent pour. Aroma is interesting, like gravy. That sounds more unpleasant than it is, but the aroma is not the highest feature. Flavor is malty and hoppy. Palate is nice.

TheBeerCollector (633) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 2, 2005
A decent beer but it’s certainly not "full-bodied" as the commercial description proclaims. Pours a nice dark copper color with very little head. Smells and tastes sweet and malty, but thin. Finishes quickly and without fanfare.

beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - AUG 30, 2005
Bottle. Dark ambery pour. Malty caramel aroma, decent enough. More malty caramel aroma, kinda thin, maybe a little bready and a bit acidic. Not too terrible.

Hangover (1088) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - AUG 29, 2005
Dark amber pour, with a quickly dissipating white head. Malty aroma with some caramal. Lightly carbonated, borderline medium bodied. Malty taste with some dough and raisin or plum. Hint of vegatable in the finish. Not such a great marzen unfortunately. Probably much better on tap as it would add some creaminess and hopefully carbonation.

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - AUG 21, 2005
Pours dark brown with a large light head. Malty aroma--brown sugar, caramel. Flavor is more of the same. Not much to it, but a great drinkin’ beer.

mephisto (1275) - TAIWAN - JUN 3, 2005
bottled, slight caramel aroma and not much head. copper color and full bodied. the finish is kind of disappointing, otherwise decent.
