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.

IMtheOptimator (1161) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - OCT 22, 2004
Poured amber/orange with a fizzy white head that left a thin lacing on the glass. Aroma is rather bland. The taste is not malty enough for what I prefer in an oktoberfest, nor is it very complex or spicy. Drinkable, but not nearly as good as some other oktoberfests I’ve had.

ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - OCT 20, 2004
Light brown with a thick tan head. Light aroma - sweet and bready. Light bodied, a bit creamy. Flavor is sweet and malty, with nutty undertones. Too watery for my taste.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4971) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2004
I used to be quite fond of Brooklyn but they have fallen a bit short of my expectations the last couple of offerings that I have had. This was the first time I had tried the octoberfest though. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle the beer poured a bronze color with a medium sized tan head. The aroma was sweet and malty with a hint of caramel. The flavor was malty and slightly bitter, though it had caramel and hazelnut undertones. Overall a nice but not great beer.

Crockett (1009) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 19, 2004
Pours clear amber with a sudsy off white head. Toffee and citric hops in the aroma. Dry and Lemony. Biscuity malts. Traces of smoke. Some earth. Mild spicey finish. Lots of good flavours but waters out. Still, very nice.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 16, 2004
Caramel aroma, with some spice. Chestnut, pours a medium sized, cream coloured head, leaving a very pretty lace. Robust malt flavour, with I believe a touch of allspice, followed by a woody, nutty taste. Well balanced, medium bodied, pleasantly bitter and dry. A fine example!

MartinT (7952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 15, 2004
Intrusive cereal/wort perfume is a tad too much reminiscent of Corn Flakes...Red fruit ride the airy bubbles atop a sticky and slick apricot honey...Sweetness and cereal get sickening halfway through and soon prescribe distance...

PBOYNY (316) - Westchester, New York, USA - OCT 14, 2004
somewhat malty octoberfest, nice clear amber color with a decent head and mild bitter aftertaste, not really the greatest, but better than some...

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 12, 2004
Floral hops with toasted malts and some sweet dough in the mild aroma. Clear amber-brown with thin, but lasting, cover of off-white head. Chocolate, caramel, raisin flavours. It’s refreshing but somewhat sticky. Sweetness builds throughout the tasting. Sampled with MartinT and Rastacouere on tap at Mugs Alehouse (Brooklyn, New York).

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 12, 2004
Clear, bright reddish dark amber. Light tan foam. Fairly mild, toasty, malty aroma of caramel & rye bread w/ a hint of peat. Medium feel. Crisp, toasty, malty flavour w/ a slight earthiness in the finish. Finish is also quite sweet & wet. Eminently quaffable.
