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

Bottle. Clear and amber with a foamy white head. Somewhat sweet aroma with a little bread and graininess. Flavor is pretty gentle, with a moderately sweet malt profile followed by a little bitterness. Medium body. Not bad, nothing too exciting. Good drinking beer.

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2009 Not the best Oktoberfest... I actually like the Sam Adam’s better. It has a good palate and just OK malt flavor. Strong caramel/toffee flavor. The best part about this beer is the aroma. Good to try but its just average.

served at NYC Brewtopiafest. nice amber-brown body (rust colored) with a medium sized tan head. smells of bread and very malty. pretty smooth mouthfeel though overall it is a bit dry and watered down. tastes very malty, bready yeast, light hops and a touch of caramel. kind of musky too. it doesn’t hit any high notes but its good for what its worth.

I had it on tap. It pours a nice amber color with a decent head and some lacing. The aroma is caramel and biscuit malts. The taste is caramel, bread, nutty, and a hint of hops on the finish. It’s pretty balanced and smooth. I thought this was a good interpretation of the style.

Nothing too creative, but a well balanced oktoberfest in my opinion. It left me wishing I had more, which is more than I could say for many other Oktobers I’ve tried.

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2009 Amber bottle poured an amber ale. Great Oktoberfest brew that melds the malt with the the hops to great a great balance and finishes with a malt chocolate taste.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Amber color. Small off-white head, which dissipated to a ring and a little lace on the surface. Aroma was malty with fruity accents. Smooth to the palate, with medium carbonation. Flavors were roasted and caramel malts and hops. Started bitter, but became faintly sweet and spicy. Not an ingenious Oktoberfest brew, but I liked it, as I do most of Brooklyn’s offerings.

Nothing special here. Many better oktoberfests out there i would rather have. Color is also a bit lighter/ orange looking than i would prefer

Bottle. Pours average head with a tawny color. Hints of caramel and brown sugar, with a lively carbonation. A good session beer for celebrating the season.
