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.

6 pack of 12oz bottles after dinner at the Eastside grill in the hamp. Pour is amber and the head is thin like a soda. The first sip is cold and spicy. The nutty malt balances the pumpkin pie-like spices. Not an amazing beer, but it might be the best that I have had of this style.

It has a nice copper color and tastes of caramel, and maple, but it’s not sweet like maple syrup. Good balance of flavors and some roasty notes. Nice finish. Good, but not great.

iratherbe (255) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 23, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2005 After many more tastes decided to re-rate since I deem the prior a bad line. Very solidly crafted & built. Good subtle balance of bready & sweet malt with a slight hoppy tracing. Cool dirty head and murky copper color. Some stickiness in the after taste. Finishs well. Distictly yeasty in the nose - couldn’t discern whether it was the tap lines or beer (though the place has a good rep for turnover - also have had bottled). Fairly non-descript taste with sweeter malts missing the mark. I like the Brooklyn lineup, but this player was nowhere near it’s German counterparts. A general disappointment. 2.5

Roasty unfiltered caramel color with minial white/off-cream head. Matly sugars on the nose. Somewhat fishy and musty on the tongue. As well, it’s also just off-bitter with the taste. This almost comes off as a Scottish Ale (but then again, I could have had a bad bottle). It’s passable, but not one of the better ones I’ve had of Mr. Oliver’s brews. (Bottle Pour 1/28/2007)

12oz bottle purchased from Clarendon Wines in Boston. Pours a clear, rich copper with a bit of head. Aroma is a bit indistinct. Taste follows - fairly indistinct. Some malts, not a lot of hops. Nothing standing out in this one to make me want to buy it again. Yawn.

JamesD (243) - Centreville, Virginia, USA - SEP 11, 2007
Pours a brown/copper color with just a little head. The aroma is light, sweet, and malty. The flavor is malty, with a little bit of bitterness and breadiness. I thought this was pretty good, but it’s nothing spectacular.

Steely (241) - , SWEDEN - OCT 9, 2008
Pours an amber color with a thin off-white head. Quite sweet aroma with hints of fruit and butter. Refreshing flavor with a malty touch and a wellbalanced light hoppiness. Simple and clean, fresh and easely drinkable.
