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.

Had it on tap at the Little Pub. Pours a lovely reddish brown color, thing of beauty really. Flavor is pretty smooth and malty, minor bit of hops noticeable. One of the better Oktoberfests I’ve had in recent years. Definitely give this one a shot.

Bottle. Dark golden amber with offwhite head. Aromas of grain, flower, pool water. Flavors of grain, nuts, pool water, nutmeg. Musty and lifeless. Where’s the caramel sweetness? Where are the hops? Finish is watery and slightly chalky. Body too thick for style IMO. Medium body with watery mouthfeel and medium, bright carbonation. The more of the 8$ six-pack I drank, the less I liked it. Suprised Brooklyn brought this to market.

Dark amber pour with lasting clingy white top. Looks great. Aromas of caramel and bready malt are nice. Flavor matches the nose, with some caramel sweetness and malty goodness. A little more carbonation than I like, but finishes clean. Very drinkable marzen.

I thought this brew was stunning with the complexity it displayed. Malty, bready, a little nutty. Sweet, and bitter in balance. I say well done.

Smells very sweet and malty. Taste is very malty with a plastic caramel taste to it. Not bad, but there are better out there.

Bungalo22 (326) - Bridgeport, Connecticut, USA - SEP 10, 2008
Poured from the bottle an amber color with a nice tan head. The aroma was spicy and malty with some bread like characteristics. On taste it instantly hits you as a sweet beer. It seems a bit light in body for what the aroma was. A lot of malt flavors in the body and it finished slick. I don’t this is an Oktoberfest I would hunt down again, though it wasn’t bad and I wouldn’t turn it down if offered.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2008 Bottle. Really nice sweet and bready aroma. Taste is sweet with loits of caramell and fruity notes along with some sweet malt. Lingering sweet finish. Good!

Reddish. Decent head. Beery aroma. Slight bitterness. Just a regular beer, nothing worthwhile.

somewhat malty octoberfest, nice clear amber color with a decent head and mild bitter aftertaste, not really the greatest, but better than some...
