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.

Most people think an oktoberfest is supposed to be heavy and super dark. Well this beer is is the most drinkable, beautifly colored, and an excelent pallet. I mainly enjoy the porters for the dark flavor and the rich aroma as well as the drinkability. Either way I haven’t had much else in a a long time. September is just too short.

Quickly dying head on a light red beer. Light caramel aroma. This is authentic to style, sweet and lightly bittered. Excellent beer.

Poured from a 12oz outbid a sixpack. Great pouring beer, but I am not a believer in how well it pours. I care more about the nose and flavor in store. The aroma brings me back to last week, boiling wort for another batch of homebrew. It is that potent! Nutty and bready, I could sit and smell for days. Taste is delicious and rounds out that wonderful aroma. I am going to stock up on this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I’ve had many Oktoberfest/Octoberfest/Marzen beers, and this is one of the better ones. The beer produced this year (2014), is probably the best yet from Brooklyn. Pours a gorgeous deep gold with slight copper hues. Nice, creamy head that lasts, then fades off to some nice lacing. Nice brewery fresh aroma of barley and fresh baked bread. Some decent hops in the nose as well, just right for the style. Nice soft, barley malt flavor with just enough hop bitterness, the hops being unmistakably German. Wonderfully balanced.

Great beer, big malts and hops, a strong beer not meant for Palate challenged, a very good marzen style beer, they are meant to be hearty.

Not bad of a head out of the bottle, a deep copper color, malty aroma, very smooth, a well balanced marzen
