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.

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.

eaglefan538 (3042) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - 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.

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.

Skinnyviking (9465) - 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.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 21, 2006
Pours amber with a minimal off-white head. Aroma of sweet malts, citrus, and caramel notes. Flavor is malty, caramel, citrusy fruit, and slight bitterness. Ok body, a little disapointing and forgettable.

sunevdj (4072) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2006
Pours a clear amberwith no apparent head. Smells of mushrooms. Sweet and slightly almondy. Dry dusty finish. Lively CO2.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - FEB 28, 2006
12 oz bottle. Clear amber color with bubbly off white head. Strong malty caramel aroma with a hint of salted meat. Flavor is dominated by caramel malt, but there is also a touch of dried cherry. Slightly spicy with a crisp finish.

beerscout (298) - New Windsor, New York, USA - FEB 16, 2006
Bottle. Amber color. Small off-white head, which dissipated to a ring and a little lace on the surface. Aroma was malty with fruity accents. Smooth to the palate, with medium carbonation. Flavors were roasted and caramel malts and hops. Started bitter, but became faintly sweet and spicy. Not an ingenious Oktoberfest brew, but I liked it, as I do most of Brooklyn’s offerings.

Pours copper with a white head. Smells of grapes, apples and peppery. Taste is more of the same.
