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.

Dark amber with a moderate head. The aroma is malty and the flavour is on the thin side, but does have notes of roasted malt, sweetness, caramel and a bit of fruit. The bitterness is moderate and the finish rather short. I don’t think this is up to the normal Brooklyn standard.

daknole (10042) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 1, 2009
Damn this is a pretty nasty verion of an oktoberfest. Amber pour. Very grainy and malty aroma...flavor reminds me of a bad dark lager. Macro flavors...skunk, caramel malt and sorry hops. Man I really didn’t like this.

Drake (9999) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 27, 2008
12 oz. bottle from Wine Warehouse. Strawberry orange pour with a large head and decent retention. Bready aroma with some grassiness. Taste is very bready as well, with notes of caramel, stone fruits and light hay. Full bodied.

hopscotch (9954) - 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!

12oz bottle. Poured a medium copperish color with an averaged size off white head. Aromas of toasted malts, caramel, and some breadiness. Tastes of the same.

Sammy (9249) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 15, 2005
Some hop and carbonation. Malty and carmel finish. Light mouthfeel. amber colour and a little off-white head.Dry slightly astringent aftertaste. Certainly not the best representative of this style I have had. Just boring and nothing special.

355mL. Pours a clear, light amber with a small, white head. Small, decent lace. Nose is detergent with tea leaves. Taste is watery, soapy, tea leave tannic...pretty bad. Just very dull.

Dogbrick (9109) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 8, 2008
This beer pours a completely transparent amber/orange color with a medium thin off-white head that recedes steadily. Spotty lacing on the glass. Malty nose with touches of caramel and fruit. Medium-bodied and sweet with flavors of caramel malt, grain and bits of cinnamon. The finish is malty with a touch of hops bitterness in the aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

Rune (8923) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 20, 2008
Bottle from Utobeer. Plain malty beer with a rocky, slightly yellow head over an orange-brown body. Fugacious foam. Bready malts to the nose followed by a taste of herbs, wet forest and suggestions of earthy malts. Rather strange flavour and a bit vapid (Tromsø, 10.05.2008).
