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.

Pours orange with small white head. Smells like caramel and fruit. Taste is sweet with a little spice and roasted malts. Light bodied. Dryish finish with roasted malts and fruit. It’s not bad.

Growler from Whole Foods. Caramel colored, a bit creamy, little carbonation and a dry caramel flavor capped off by a medium long bitter finish. Decent but not outstanding for this style.

Very little aroma, and very little taste to boot. Watery, with a very yeasty body. Just another crappy Oktoberfest to add to my list, I should just stick to the tried and true.

Less than expected from this brewer. Not distinctive at all. More bland than anything; needs an injection of hops for starters. Poor Marzen. Spend your money elsewhere for a better Oktoberfest.

I was able to try Brooklyn Oktoberfest on Election night 2008. The beer is an amber brown color with a light brown head. The aroma is full of sweet fruits with a dry sweet hop. This was an enjoyable beer for a very unenjoyable night.

Bottle. Dark golden amber with offwhite head. Aromas of grain, flower, pool water. Flavors of grain, nuts, pool water, nutmeg. Musty and lifeless. Where’s the caramel sweetness? Where are the hops? Finish is watery and slightly chalky. Body too thick for style IMO. Medium body with watery mouthfeel and medium, bright carbonation. The more of the 8$ six-pack I drank, the less I liked it. Suprised Brooklyn brought this to market.

Pours a medium amber color with a medium sized off white head. Yeasty grainy nose. Not like "bread" like the best Octoberfest’s are -- Well, maybe bread *dough*. Taste is nicely malty with just a bit of hop. Short hop finish. A decent Oktoberfest beer, not outstanding.
