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.

Draught. Had this on at the Parlour in Sharpsburg with Ryan and radio star Kevin Battle after Sidney Crosby’s first game in the Burgh. Lots of malt, dough, bread, and sweetness in this beer. I like it. It has a litle more hop to it than lots that I have had, but to me, that’s a good thing. Nice full carb and good medium body. I like it.

From draft : Pours a drak beautiful amber color with a finger white head. Medium palate with a roasted taste and nice finish, a little sticky though.

I wish all American brewers producing oktoberfests would take a lesson from Ayinger, whose Oktoberfest is malty, tasty, and delicious. Instead, most breweries insist on putting out yeast-heavy, flavor-deprived brews such as this one. Yeast and hops dominate the aroma of this vibrant dark red beer, and the finish follows suit. What a waste.

RnH: tap: I really enjoyed this brew; and while I normally rate in full, coherent sentences, I will stick with the key words I used in my notes.... Earthy, rich, dirt, vegetables, darkness, crisp, clean, tastes like autumn...

...Yawn... Rather dark red with short lived head. Nutty, caramel aroma. Caramel malt, very fruity and quite sweet. Light, thin bitterness and an almost tart finish. Medium bodied. No obvious flaws other than dullness. Not very nice or interesting.

Pours mahogany with a bit of head. Nose is surprisingly hoppy for the style, a bready malt. Taste is very balanced hop/malt profile, some sweetness, a bit of bitterness on the end. Definitely not a traditional oktoberfest, I'm missing the german lager yeast character. Reads almost like an American amber. It's ok. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beautiful clear super light brown color, minimal head. Gentle malt aroma, no hops. Clean malty flavor, medium body, a tangy note, some bitterness in the finish. a touch of sweetness in the middle. Really nice beer.

Nothing special here. Many better oktoberfests out there i would rather have. Color is also a bit lighter/ orange looking than i would prefer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A fairly standard Oktoberfest but nevertheless well done. A malty taste that is mildly hopped and not very complex. Nothing distinctive but a solid execution of the style.

Oktoberfest brews don’t excite me too much, but this one in particular really didn’t do to much for me. The reddish orange color is very pleasing to the eye, but overall it seemed a bit bland. The caramel malt was there along with some nuttiness and some citric hoppiness. Average O-Fest.
