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.

UPDATED: SEP 21, 2003 Reddish-brown pour with a small tan head that recedes to a small ring and lightly laces on the way down. Aroma is mainly bready, with slight hints of caramel and hops. Flavor is bready, some savory caramel, and a bit of hops in the end. Medium body, medium-lively carbonation, super easy drinking.

Clear copper body topped by a small, quickly dissipating beige head. Aroma is earthy and cereal. Taste is medium sweet caramel tinged with earthiness. Avoids being too sweet. Medium body with a slight chewiness.

guzzler67 (1529) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - SEP 17, 2003
Very true to style amber color. Aroma was grainy. Taste seemed more spicy this year (2003) than last. Medium-bodied, malty flavor with a pleasant dry finish.

MaBeer1972 (1368) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 16, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 20, 2010 Rather thin. Nice caramel-malt flavors. Could use a little more body though. A good "weekday" beer, I suppose. The finish was better than the top. 2010 Update: Seems better than last rating. Smooth and malty, slightly fruity, but easy drinking.

Kaya161 (1128) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 9, 2003
Deep golden-orange colour. OK malt aroma. The falvour is malty, but kind of thin. Watery finish. Not buttery enough.

boto (1891) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - SEP 7, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2013 Draught: The beer pours a rich copper color. There is not too much off-white head to it. Rich aroma of malts and some earthiness. Not too much hops (if any) to the nose. The taste is malty : caramel is the main flavor. Some earthiness and biscuit notes. A touch of nuttiness. This goes down very smooth. I really enjoyed this beer!

jgb9348 (4857) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 4, 2003
2003 Batch:
Amber--almost copper in colour with red highlights and a perfect thickness (2 centimetres) off-white coloured head. Smells of malt, nuts, hops and even a bit of soap. Medium-bodied; Strong initial maltiness leading to a bit of hoppiness and a very subtle spiceyness (cinnamon and a small amount of cloves). Aftertaste very bittering from all the malt, but not overly so. A bit of soap in the aftertaste flavour which is a bit wierd! Overall, this is a pretty spot-on Marzen and worth a try if you can find it! I bought my twelve ounce bottle from Beers of the World in Rochester, New York.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 28, 2003
Nice clear copper/brown body with a medium white head that retains well. Sweet malty aroma. Malty and almost chewy medium bodied . Very smooth and drinkable.

hopscotch (9556) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 21, 2003
Beautiful, clear, copper brew. Small, fizzy, off-white head with no lacing. The nose holds honey and light butterscotch. Perfectly balanced flavor with honey and caramel up front. Lightly pungent, astringent and bitter on the backside. Medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation and an oily mouthfeel. Medium-length, lightly bitter and dry finish. Very good brew!

What's this? Another good one from Brooklyn? They've managed to craft another beer without that wicked aftertaste. Congrats.
