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.

Clear, deep copper from the bottle with a creamy beige head. Nice nutty maltiness with an almost brown sugar and caramel sweetness. Great balance in the finish. I wish I had more of these. Thanks to 1more4dessert for this bottle.

Kinz (3361) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - OCT 22, 2003
Medium orange with copper tones, decent head. Very faint aroma of floral hops, trace malts. Improved as it warmed, but the malt flavors never really emerged, giving an overall strikingly light impression. Hop flavors of hay dominated, not my favorite style.

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2004 Had this on tap in a local bar at a octoberfest. Pretty good. Amber in color with a nice white head. Full bodied fest beer. Malty and creamy. I liked it.

OldGrowth (2751) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - OCT 19, 2003
Bottle: Nose is weaker than I'd like. Malty grainy nose. Lite fruit. Clear orange color. no head, no lacing. Toasty malt flavor. Creamy with bite. Linguring bitterness that fades away. Thinn body. A tad weak for my liking. Another ok beer from brooklyn

desurfer (1224) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - OCT 18, 2003
Nice Oktoberfest. Heavy on the malt, yet very smooth and drinkable. Brooklyn does it again.

sloth (2529) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - OCT 11, 2003
Small offwhite head, quickly fades. Clear amber color. Grainy, malty nose. Medium body. Clean malt flavor, some caramel notes. Fairly dry finish for an o-fest.

crazyvin (1990) - New York, USA - OCT 7, 2003
nice amber color with a caramel aroma. I found the taste overly hopped with not enough sweet notes in it. The hop bitterness masked its malty flavors.

winterlager (101) - Orchard Park, New York, USA - OCT 4, 2003
Pours a nice copper color with a lacy creamy head. Sweet malty aroma. This is I think my favorite Oktoberfest beer. Very smooth tasting with a perfect mix of hops.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - OCT 2, 2003
Very nice example by Brooklyn. Rusty amber color, off-white head, some lacing. Sweet malt aroma. Sweet malt flavor as well, some hops. Doughy/chewy body. Quite smooth.

slushy (28) - Niagara Falls, New York, USA - OCT 2, 2003
Copper color with a tan head, good lacing down the glass. Sweet bready caramel malts in the nose. Slight steamed vegetables. Kind of weak aroma. Caramel steamed carrots on the tongue. Okay malty mouthfeel. Great job Brooklyn! By far my favorite American Oktoberfest. Malty, and smooth drinking. Not one of my favorite styles though.
