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.

Bottled: Pours a lush orange amber color with a tight sticky off-white cap which lasts and laces well. Big toasty-bready aromas, herbal-woody noble undertones - authentic Marzen aroma. The body and flavour are a let-down after the promise of the wonderful aroma - a tad on the thin side for the style and the flavour (although relatively authentic with toasty Munich red malts and noble hopping) is a both thin as well and with an overly dry finish. Other than these two minor issues this is a decent craft Marzen although I prefer Sam Adams to this version.

Super malty and almost no hoppy flavor. Not a balanced beer at all. Had it let in the season so that might be part of it as well. Had at river roast in Chicago ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
