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.

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 (2079) - 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.

On tap. Very malty aroma and flavor, with a smooth feel. It’s pretty sweet, but not as sweet as other Oktoberfests such as Sam Adams. I’d drink it again.

pours dark red with a yellowish head. taste is smooth, rich, and dangerously drinkable. this is a damn good OF beer. smells malty and yeasty, and the taste is very similar to that. a little sweet, but not too sweet as some marzens tend to be. this is a damn fine marzen, and i imagine it will go well with my tacos.

Ahh, the welcome smell of Oktoberfest... in August. Smoky, caramel and malt aromas. Dark enough, but kind of flat in the glass. Thin tan head lingers just a little. The flavor is a little tangy, a little chocolaty, and lingers on without much carbonation to give it bite.
