I wsa really disappointed with this beer.Although not a bad beer, I don’t think it was a great ’Oktoberfest’ Marzen style. It really lacked enough malt character for me to call it an Oktoberfest’

This is the sweetest, most buttery Oktoberfest I’ve enjoyed so far this month. The mouthfeel is so soft, and the pour a lot less fizzy than I anticipated. Not flat, but not exciting. I’ll buy it again... next Oktober!

Bottle. Pours a copper color with a one finger white head. Aroma is malty and bready with some caramel. Taste is a little sweet and malty. Has a little bite to it in the end. Decent beer.

Slight malty aroma. Pours deep bronze with a huge, fluffy head that leaves a solid lacing down the glass. Looks lively, carbonated. Taste is malty, not as much bready yeastiness as some of the German counterparts, some sweet caramel there. A little bit too carbonated, aside from that the palate is adequate. Good marzen, but there are better out there.

12 oz bottle. Pours a kind of clear mahogany amber brown. Not so much of a nose, just a little malts. Body is medium-light and kind of just watery, not so much of a finish. I love Brooklyn but this is below par for them, but then again- maybe just not my style. I’ll be willing to give it a try next year.

White, thick, frothy head. Nose from the bottle was interesting. Reminded me of the smell of a boiling, homebrew wort with a tint of ice tea. Very malty, bready taste. Seems true to the style. Would like to compare next to Hacker-Pschorr. Another impressive beer from Brooklyn.
