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.

Color is a nice dark brown with an off white head. Aroma is malty, but earthy and organic, not a great mix. The taste is mostly that earthy, organic with a very carbonated finish. Ends a bit unpleasantly sticky sweet.

Draft, Baja Bean, Staunton VA. Amber color with little head. Light nose of biscuity malt, light caramel sweetness, and some perceptible bitterness. Flavor is slightly sweet malt with a decidedly crisp, bitter finish. Fairly lager-like body, though a bit light; this could have been heavier and smoother. A really drinkable beer from a dependable brewer-- I might not get an all-star, but I certainly won’t be let down. Glad it didn’t taste like an over-spiced pumpkin ale.

UPDATED: SEP 21, 2003 Reddish-brown pour with a small tan head that recedes to a small ring and lightly laces on the way down. Aroma is mainly bready, with slight hints of caramel and hops. Flavor is bready, some savory caramel, and a bit of hops in the end. Medium body, medium-lively carbonation, super easy drinking.

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.

On rap at Ron Black Beer Hall. Nice creamy head. Full bodied taste. Very enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Burgers (344) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 27, 2014
Auburn with a thin white head. Aromas of malts and some spice. Taste light bitter and sweet. Complex palate,medium body, clean finish.

bobman006 (339) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 16, 2010
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.
