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.

A pretty nice oktoberfest. I didn’t like it at first, but the more sips I took, the more it grew on me. A pretty standard amber lager.

White, thick, frothy head. Nose from the bottle was interesting. Reminded me of the smell of a boiling, homebrew wort with a tint of ice tea. Very malty, bready taste. Seems true to the style. Would like to compare next to Hacker-Pschorr. Another impressive beer from Brooklyn.

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2003 (bb 3/03) Pasteurized to death. This beer is devoid of character. Another victim of the FX Matt beer cooker.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - SEP 9, 2002
orangey-red "watery" color, good lacing. Initial swallow is fizzy. Thinner than most fests, very light caramel. Nice amount of hop keeps it from getting sweet. This is average.

Just the right color for a Marzen. Bready aroma - I hate pretentious phrases like that, but it’s true. A very nice, full malty flavor that’s not unlike some of the solid German contenders like Ayinger and H-Pschorr. Must re-rate side to side with some of the proven Oktos to see which is best.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 25, 2002
A good octoberfest but not full enough. Nice orange/amber color with a decnet head that fades gradually. Very malty sweetness, with slight hop flavor and aroma. Very noticeable caramel malts- maybe caravienne or caramunich, maybe some crystal. Went down easy, but it just wasnt that great.

Panzuriel (1295) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - AUG 20, 2002
Smells a bit hoppier than normal other marzens. Decent apperance. good smooth texture. Full in the mouth. Slightly tart aftertaste. Carmel and malt flavors dominate.

obxdude10 (2031) - Limerick, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2002
Not bad of a head out of the bottle, a deep copper color, malty aroma, very smooth, a well balanced marzen

omhper (19306) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 25, 2002
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2008 Bottled. Dusty and caramelly with lifeless crystal malt character half covered in piney hops. Finishes with salty cardboard. True to the original German style? Nothing could be more wrong.

Ruby color. Little head. Big hop aroma. The flavor is mostly hops with some toasty malt background. I thought it was a bit overhopped and the malt got dominated a bit. Not bad, but certaintly not outstanding.
