Pretty red color with sweet, bready aroma. Taste is largely yeast and malt with minimal hops. Somewhat watery too. Pleasant but maybe not up with Brooklyn’s best stuff.

Decent enough, but I didn’t like this as well as most of the Brooklyns that I’ve had. Biscuity malts, some fruit, mostly dry. Ample palate, not too hoppy.

Some hop and carbonation. Malty and carmel finish. Light mouthfeel. amber colour and a little off-white head.Dry slightly astringent aftertaste. Certainly not the best representative of this style I have had. Just boring and nothing special.

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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

Bottle. Pretty clear copper color with minimal head. Aroma is toated malts. Taste is bready and malty with some flowery hops. Nothing outstanding, but a good Oktoberfest.

Paid $1.49 for a 12-oz single (bottle). Pours autumn-leaf brown with a small white head. Sweet malty aroma. Light flavor with a sweet malty finish. Actually pretty tasty.
