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.

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!

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...

somewhat malty octoberfest, nice clear amber color with a decent head and mild bitter aftertaste, not really the greatest, but better than some...

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).

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.

This is a good Oktoberfest compared to the mass produced Oktober-beers. The malt and the hops remain true to a German beer. It is medium bodies with a hearty malt mouthfeel. The hops are just there to give you a slight dry finish, but not much more. A good beer if you can’t find any other microbrew.

I definitely expected more from Brooklyn. The color is great and aroma is so-so, but the flavor is lacking and there is a slight malt/blah aftertaste. Not all that good - I was disappointed.

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - OCT 5, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2008 [12 oz. bottle] Amber color with a slightly off-white head. Mild aroma of sweetness, malts and possibly some apples. Very quickly fading flavor, initial one is sweet malts and the finish is very... not there. It’s very odd. Right after the malty taste, there’s nothing. Quite strange.

Not a huge favorite of Ocks...but a good drink. Amber body, pretty mild compared to most Oktoberfests I’ve had...which I liked...but it ran a bit thin.
