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.

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.

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.

Wiseblood (701) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 26, 2006
Cloudy light amber with an aroma of pear and bready malts. Initial quick bitterness leads to sweet juicy malts. Finish is dry, reminiscent of baking bread. Easy to drink, kind of thin, simple.

bfeldmann (1050) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JAN 18, 2006
"Poured a copper color with almost no head to speak of, but left okay lacing. Sweet malts, aroma. Tasted to much of malts, over powering. Mouthfeel was carbonated. "
