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.

Quickly dying head on a light red beer. Light caramel aroma. This is authentic to style, sweet and lightly bittered. Excellent beer.

I really appreciated this beer. It is true to the style and has an "old world" sophistication to it while remaining individual. Dusty malty nose is a little more prominent than in some German counterparts. Deep gold-orange color and a tall spongy head. Heavy malt front with caramel notes. Seamless transition to a coutering tight, dry, but reserved bitterness. Excellent.

This was one of the few beers, pivo and I totally disagreed with each other. I think it smells like Oktoberfest because it smells, and I'm serious, no matter what pivo says, it smells like cabbage. To be more clear like SAUERKRAUT. And this leads to my question: What makes an Oktoberfest an Oktoberfest? And...as I have a problem with the smell of Sauerkraut - yadda yadda, trauma of beeing a german kid yadda yadda, I had problems being objective this beer.

Pours with a huge, rousing cream head that sits atop a clear amber, thin body. Smells of clean malt, soap and not much else. Tastes of malt, orange/lemon hops, a tad of autumn spice and some wateriness. Pretty good marzen that is a very easy drinker. I could handle 4 or 5 of these sitting on the porch, no problem. Sampled from a 12oz bottle brought to me by my good friend Jeremy, all the way from Rochester, NY.

Cobra (1100) - - NOV 8, 2003
12 oz. brown bottle. No freshness date, but it's the 2003 batch. Poured out a bright copper color, with a fast fading head. Left islands of yeast on top of the beer. Fresh aromas of Munich and Vienna malts. No discernable hops aromas. Very malty tasting, kind of burns the back of your throat. Finishes rather sweet, not dry, but crisp all the same. A decent effort from Brooklyn Brewery.

The subtle aroma of yeast was nice. Slight caramel notes. malty and full bodied, but not cloying. Good

Very nice maltiness and hop bite at the end. Also balanced by a nice hint of sweetness. Downside was little body on tap when I tried it.

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.
