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.

Color is a nice dark brown with an off white head. Aroma is malty, but earthy and organic, not a great mix. The taste is mostly that earthy, organic with a very carbonated finish. Ends a bit unpleasantly sticky sweet.

cmacklin (363) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 15, 2015
355 ml bottle. Pours an unclear, copper colour with an average beige head that laces. Sweet malty aroma with caramel and bread. Sweet flavour of roasted malt and caramel with a bready note in the finish. Light body with a watery texture and soft to almost flat carbonation. A pretty easy drinking brew.

Pours a sweet red and trnaslucid liquid with good head retention. Very nice aroma of malt, caramel and maple syrup. Taste is sweet and malty. Finishes crisp and bitter. Medium body, almost full. Oktoberfests would be great with this beer.

Christpuncher (1779) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 26, 2015
Super malty and almost no hoppy flavor. Not a balanced beer at all. Had it let in the season so that might be part of it as well. Had at river roast in Chicago ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
