light citrus smell. sort of hippy and sweet. not to much to it and doesn’t taste like an oktobester.

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.

Amberish orange color with no head. The flavor isn’t good. It tastes like a spoiled malty Pale Ale. Unpleasant harsh/bitter oak finish. Dry. Not balanced. Short shelf life? Have to come back to this beer to justify my review.

Puored reddish amber with small off white head. Strong malt taste with lesser hops. Medium bodied, very drinkable.

A nice easy drinking Oktoberfest beer. Nothing spectatular, but nothing horriable either. Pours burnt red... pretty malty, no overwelming hop taste. nice frothy head, decent lacing. Not bad for an American Oktober brew.

A little dissapointed in this one. I usually am impressed with Brooklyn’s beers, but this one seems bland. The aroma intices with maltiness, lager yeast and a touch of hops, but the flavor doesn’t follow through. Better than some, but not up to Brooklyn’s standards.

Beer pours a deep amber/brown indicative of a true-to-style German Oktoberfest in the same vein as Ayinger. Malt displays depth and a warm caramel note with the added bonus of a nice hops spice betraying the beers American craft origin. One of the best of this season’s American Okts.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured from bottle into pint glass. Clear amber color with small white head. Aroma is caramel and malt. Taste isn’t that strong or flavorful, mostly sweet and malty, with a little hop bite. Moderate carbonation that leaves not much of lingering harshness.
