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.

I’ve heard good things about this brewery. Unfortunately, this attempt at an octoberfest was my first sampling. Time for the brewmaster to take a trip to Munich.. it doesnt’ compare.

I've had a couple of Oktoberfest beers recently and I've been unimpressed. It's fine, its a nice medium amber, brown kinda color. Has some taste but it just isn't very memorable. I'd order another if I just wanted a beer but not if I wanted something interesting.

Dark amber color with virtually no head. The aroma is a nice mix of malt, caramel, and a roasted nuttiness. Light bodied with a watery texture. Solid mix of flavors that include malt, caramel, nuts, toast, and a mild flavoring of fruit, more specifically apples and raisins. It’s all about the malt in this one, and it’s good.

From 330ml bottle. Pours dark amber colour, small white head that soon dissipates. Aroma is a little of bread and malts. Some carbonation on the tongue on first taste. Light caramel taste with hints of hops and malt. Not much bitter. Easy to drink for that Oktoberfest period. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

What's this? Another good one from Brooklyn? They've managed to craft another beer without that wicked aftertaste. Congrats.

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.
