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.

Pours a medium dark amber with a medium beige head. Aroma is a pleasant spicey maltiness with some light caramel herbal scents. Tasty sweet caramel start. The attempt at a hop bitterness is lost in a bland herbal finish though. Still not a bad Oktoberfest.

Reddish-brown color that was almost a little cloudy. Malty aroma that I guess had berries in it if you looked for them... otherwise I would never have picked them up. Taste was highly malty, a little bready, and slightly creamy. I picked up some dark fruits like prunes or plums in there too. Full bodied. Not bad, but not the Oktoberfest I was looking for.

Aroma is pretty malty, some hops. Pours amber, no head. Flavor is malty, some citrus, with a rather roasty finish. Medium body, fairly tasty.

For this oktoberfest beer i really do not care for it . There does not have much appearance, aroma , and it kind of has a wet dog taste. There is not happening here.

clear amber pour with a small tan head...yeast and malt aroma....carbonated cardboard hop taste... slight cellar/musty taste....not very impressed...not a big fan of the style, but I’m trying several marzens and they all are very similiar

Pours a clear copper with a finger of head after a strong poor that dies quick. Smell is extremely faint of malt and spice. Taste equivocates the smell. Malty semi dry finish. Drinks very well as its refreshing but leaves something to be desired with this style.
