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.

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

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.

Nothing special here. Many better oktoberfests out there i would rather have. Color is also a bit lighter/ orange looking than i would prefer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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...

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.

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.
