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.

Nate (4247) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2005
Decent malty aroma, not overly complex but has a richness about it that you’ll find in some doppelbocks. Caramel and tofee, with a mild fruity hop note. Bit of carbonic acidity, too. Warm glowing medium-dark amber, hazy, with thin off-white head. Medium watery body with medium-high carbonation. Light carbonic burn going down. It starts fairly malty, with a good level of sweetness. Caramel and toffee, biscuit. The sweetness wears off quickly and some carbonic acidity takes over. Following this, there is a light to medium bitterness, not quite astringent. Finish is a bit watery and the aftertaste is a balance of leftover brown sugar residue and carbonic-chalky bitterness.

Beer pours a deep amber/brown indicative of a true-to-style German Oktoberfest in the same vein as Ayinger. Malt displays depth and a warm caramel note with the added bonus of a nice hops spice betraying the beers American craft origin. One of the best of this season’s American Okts.
