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.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 26, 2005
Very clear copper color pour with a thin wispy white head. Sugary caramel candy grainy malty aroma has a touch of dry European hops. Starts with some sweet, but thin, grainy malty body and some mild hoppy balance along with a hint of tartness. Not very true to style, but not all that bad either.

On tap at Brooklyn Brewery, Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY. Clear amber hued beer with small off-white head with good lacing. No discernable carbonation. Aroma of sweet malt and hops. Light-to-medium bodied with sweet malt flavor and finishes with lingering hop bitterness. Rather thin textured and watery flavored. A drinkable but weak Oktoberfest beer.
