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.

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2005 This was average, I started out like a lager, and finished weak. I am thinking it maybe a bad bottle, I think I may have had it on tap and it was much better, but at oktobeerfest partys it was last of the bunch.

I thought I had rated this before. Slightly metallic, slightly caramelly and toasty nose. Blegh. Transparent darker copper color with a slight red twinge. Small off white head. This is very very very malty. Almost like eating straight butter. Lots of grain, toastiness, cherrios in liquid form. Not a big fan of the chewiness.

Well, I had this on tap at a bar about three blocks from the brewery in Brooklyn. At least I got it that close. We got turned away at the door because of early closing due to their own Oktoberfest. Ah, well. A nice beer, for the style, I liked. Slightly syrupy on the uptake. Brown color.

Had this on tap, at a bar, about 1000 feet from Brooklyn Brewery. Me and a friend had gone there for the fest, but it was raining bad so we decided not to stay. A nice Oktoberfest, but not the best

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2007 Poured a deep copper color with a small off white head that receded to a thin film and left light lacing on the glass. Sweet malty, light caramel, and doughy aroma. The taste is very malty but not overly sweet. However, that is about all I am getting. Mouthfeel is carbonated, though overall it finishes wet.

Lipton Iced Tea colored with a big head that quickly went almost all away. The only remnants are a light tan thin sheet on the top. Aroma is tinny with a faint wisp of roasty malt. The taste is really nothing. Bland, watery, with a touch of malty caramel. Mouthfeel is a bit lively but I expect more from a brewer that considers himself World Class. Come on dude. You can do better and you know it. Start showing us something already, geez.

Wow, Brooklyn never fails to amaze. Much darker then a typical Oktoberfest. Will rerate again after finishing another of my sixer. First impressions...thumbs up.

shadey (2076) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 14, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2009 red pour with minimal head. A tastey brew with nothing special to note. It does follow the octoberfest style though.5/3/5/3/14

RERATE: Glassy amber color with a thin film of white. Aroma is a toasty sweet malt. Better cold, but when it warms it gets a little sticky. Flavors are sweet malts, with not enough toasty flavors; but still a nice oktoberfest.

Tap at the Brooklyn Brewery. Very nice Marzen style beer. Nice complex flavors and rich mouth feel yet easy to drink. Beautiful deep reddish brown color. Diminishing head that leaves a nice lacing around the top. Smells great and nicely roasted malts. One of my favorite Oktoberfest beers.

Very nice Oktoberfest - rich amber color with a malty (not too sweet) flavor. Reminds me of Gordon Biersch Marzen. Very drinkable.
