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.

GLowing red orange color with a moderate eggshell head. :Light malts with a hint of lemon in the aroma, also some raw potatoes. Slightly burnt sweet malts in the body.

EKGoldings (666) - Radford, Virginia, USA - OCT 29, 2005
This is a decent beer but not more than that. The malt is far too muted, the hops restrained, tastes watery, not much there.

GuilTTy (735) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - OCT 27, 2005
Clear copper pour under a short and fluffy white head with minimal lacing. Classic malty aroma with notes of toasted bicuits and cereal. Flavors were very consistent with the malty aroma with the addition of some spice, grain and a little hoppy bite at the back of the tongue. Very clean and snappy finish. Overall, a solid Oktoberfest which doesn’t stray at all from what you would expect from the style but that conservative approach left a bit to be desired.

3.3
wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 27, 2005
Deep amber-orange-red hue with a medium, creamy white head. Cookie, dark bread, floral, herbal, dough, biscuit. Damn clean aroma. Moderately sweet, lightly acidic flavor. Lightly sweet, moderately bitter finish. Maybe a little astringent and a bit too bitter for the malt profile. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - OCT 26, 2005
Pours copper colored and a fast disappearing head. Malt and a bit of caramel in the aroma. Rather thin malt flavor with hints of spices and nut. Thin in the body and quite uninteresting. Not much of an oktoberfest!

Copper. Malty caramel sweetness. Not bad, but low on my list of oktoberfests

3.8
Shag (3036) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - OCT 23, 2005
This was one of my favorites in the marzen vertical sort of thing we were doing at the pre Guvna departs GA tasting. A malty and bready aroma. An orangish/brown apperance with nice head and good lacing on the glass. The flavor was fairly dry with some citrus fruit mainly orange peel and more bread showing through. A nice one.

jasonp (1581) - Ashburn, Virginia, USA - OCT 23, 2005
Dark clear red with a medium white head. Nice aroma of kilned malts, bread and noble hops. Flavor has notes of caramel, grain, toasted malt, euro hops and a touch of grass then ends a bit on the bland side. Moderate sweetness, moderate hop bitterness. The body is medium and creamy with lively carbonation. No lacing or head retention really. Solid, but I think Brooklyn can do better.

2.8
Pernille (518) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 23, 2005
Dark amber color. Fresh, malty aroma. Flavor is mostly malt with a metallic tang.

2.8
Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - OCT 21, 2005
35,5 cl bottle. No yeast in bottom. Reddish brown colour with a weak lance head. Aroma of malt. Very smooth flavour of malt and some hops. Not much bitter and dry. But overall a very easydrinking beer. This beer is little away from German style.
