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.

MacDaddyOJake (274) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 1, 2006
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.

jblendy (519) - Hawthorne, New Jersey, USA - AUG 31, 2006
Aroma is of sweet malts, light berries, and floral notes. Flavor is semi-sweet bread/grain malt, hint of berry, and floral hops. A little on the thin side, buts gets better as it warms up.

thewolf (12742) - Kolding, DENMARK - AUG 24, 2006
Pours reddish brown with little creamy off-white head. Aroma is very sweet - much maltiness. Mouthfeel is a bit of a letdown - a little watery. Sweet taste with a sour aftertaste.

Ungstrup (38238) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2006
A reddish beer with a light brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of sour berries, grain, and some hops. The flavor is sweet malty with strong notes of cowberries, and later on lesser notes of strawberries, all the time with an underlying note of grain, in the latter stages a herbal hop note joins in, leading to a medium bitter end. I find the body thin.

3.5
lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUL 26, 2006
Pours a clear orangeish copper with a thin ivory head. No lace. Smells of caramel malt, richly malty. Faint citrusy hops and lightly smoky. Tastes of rich caramel malt. A solid hop profile underneath the malt. A bit sour oddly enough. Mouth is quite sticky and sweet. This is decent but too sweet for more than a couple.

3.2
User37895 (3042) - - JUN 5, 2006
Poured with initial carbonation and then NO head at all. Little to NO lacing. A very boring appearance overall: clear copper colored. Aroma was light, hard to pick up (maybe some bread / barley smells). The flavor was all malt, semi sweet, but lacking any spicing or other oktoberfest character. Some bread and roasted malts detected. Within style, this can be beat, but I found it REALLY drinkable, similar to Smithwick’s in that sense (flavor and drinkability).

TPaliga (212) - Munster, Indiana, USA - MAY 21, 2006
pours red-brown and hazy. Aroma is yeasty and sweet. Nice big malty flavor with mild hops finish. Easy drinking and tasty, just mediocre.

3.2
sfontain (851) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 15, 2006
Picked this up for $2.99 for a six-pack at Kenny Road Market, Columbus, Ohio. Pours dark brown with a minimal white, fizzy head; head dissipates into a lasting ring; light lacing down the glass. Aroma sweet, bready, and malty with light caramel and flowers. Flavor is a bit more generic, with bread and malt and caramel; barely bitter aftertaste. Medium body. Reasonable for the price I paid.

2.4
Skinnyviking (9670) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 29, 2006
Bottle. White small head. Unclear dark reddish body. Barley aroma. Flavor of roasted barley malt. Not much bitterness. Sorry mates I had expected more.
