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.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 27, 2004
Clear, rustic amber/ochre, slim fizzy head, stripping down to a thin wafer. Earthy, vegetal nose, mildly malty, a bit quiter than I’d like. rich and tasty in the mouth, though, and very pleasant on the palate. a sweet thing, easily passed by the lips and down the hatch, but utterly unmemorable. Medium bodied, at best, with a quick, indifferent finish. This has all the earmarks of a decent Oktoberfest, but does nothing to make itself more than that,... thorughly rudimentary, adequately average.

mrkimchee (1414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 15, 2004
clear brown, foamy off white head. aroma of earth, mild smoke, maltesers, whole wheat toast and caramel. juicy malt with mixed fruit and raisin, honey and nuts. toasty finish. nice

atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - DEC 7, 2004
Clear amber with off white head. Looks like an autumn beer. Malty aroma, smells nutty and slightly roasted. Hints of cider. A malty flavor, nutty up front, quite active on the palate, spicey and cidery.

IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, JAPAN - NOV 7, 2004
A clear dark Orange, small beige head. Crystal maltiness, some sweetness but not cloying. Mild hop follow. Not an outstanding brew but overall pretty tasty.

Rastacouere (6137) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 13, 2004
Light brown body, adequate initial 1-inch off-white head slowly becomes a slight sheet. Very creamy aroma, toasted caramel pudding like with yeasty dough hints. It remains very light flavored though and it’s not as good at it may sound. Rather sweet and creamy nut-like flavor. Slight nut skin bitter slice doesn’t compensate. Light-medium body, airy moderate carbonation. Easy to drink, but you ask yourself what for?

Now THIS is what an Oktoberfest is supposed to taste like. I guess. Well I don’t really know, but this tastes good. I think this is a pretty good Oktoberfest, I’m kinda surprised it’s only 55 style %. Defeated again....

leitrim65 (402) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 10, 2004
Dark amber color with virtually no head. The aroma is a nice mix of malt, caramel, and a roasted nuttiness. Light bodied with a watery texture. Solid mix of flavors that include malt, caramel, nuts, toast, and a mild flavoring of fruit, more specifically apples and raisins. It’s all about the malt in this one, and it’s good.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - NOV 6, 2004
12 oz bottle. Nearly clear copper, medium but instantly decaying head. Caramel, light almonds in the nose, quite sweet with hints of maple, low carbonation, a bit of late smokiness and orangepeel. Solid if uninspiring.

Borrrris (110) - LINDENHURST, New York, USA - NOV 4, 2004
Bottle. Malty, not very complex flavor. Light medium body. Not much head. Pleasant, but I miss the hoppiness of Brooklyn’s "flagship" lager. BUY AGAIN?: Maybe

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2005 taste was awesome. amber color with white head. malty/nutty flavor. some nice carmel, roasted malt and walnutty, almondy flavors. tastes like fall. nice citrus notes as well.
