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.

Draught: The beer pours a rich copper color. There is not too much off-white head to it. Rich aroma of malts and some earthiness. Not too much hops (if any) to the nose. The taste is malty : caramel is the main flavor. Some earthiness and biscuit notes. A touch of nuttiness. This goes down very smooth. I really enjoyed this beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Acquired from Chopz via trade. :) Pours a slightly off white, foamy head. Has a decidedly amber copper appearance. Aromas are malty, wheaty and with hints of vanilla. Mouthfeel is a bit mild, somewhat mildly spicy. Weak lacing. Medium bodied retention. A bit carbonated. Flavours have a good balance of hops and malts. Not too bad US Oktoberfest brew.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Clear orange tan, almost no tan head. Brown sugar, some clove. Light lemon. Light bitterness, very sweet. Light body, some oiliness. Little carbonation. Meh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. No hint of aroma. Flavor of caramel with a little bit of hop pepper cutting through it. Clean finish. Good, not great.

355ml bottle. Clear, dark amber colour with average to huge, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white to beige head. Mellow malty aroma with a strawy touch and hay-like spiciness. Taste is slightly sweet caramel malty, cautious hints of toffee, a touch of hay-like spiciness. Slightly above average Märzen, mediocre overall.

Bottle. Pours a dark mahogany with a thin tan head. Nose is toast and hops which carries through to taste along with some coffee and other sweetness. Nice drinkable beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
