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. A_Train (10) - - OCT 6, 2012
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.

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. obxdude10 (2324) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2002
Not bad of a head out of the bottle, a deep copper color, malty aroma, very smooth, a well balanced marzen

Appearance: Pours a reddish-brown body with a creamy, frothy off-white head. Please, let’s get ready to enjoy ourselves!
Smell: That’s a nice malty aroma -- pleasantly toasty, with hints of brown sugar and caramel. Also, its somewhat fruity, with faint notes of peach puree.
Taste: Malty, sweet flavor that’s notably doughy with hints of citrus and peaches that eventually crosses over into a dry, though quite restrained bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Medium-body further padded with a nice creamy, chewy mouthfeel.
Drinkability: With a rich, complex array of flavors, and an ease of drinkability, this, to me, is one of the better American Oktoberfests. flying_pig (1555) - SCOTLAND - NOV 3, 2012
Bottle from Good Beer Co., Glasgow (355ml, £2.40):davidm (2080) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAR 4, 2013
A nutty aroma with some good, earthy malts and a little bit of spice. There is some sweetness and a little bit of fruit in there too but the malts certainly dominate.
A light and clear looking, caramel brown to amber colour with a foamy, fingers width tall head that stays very well and looks quite still.
Malts dominating again along with a little bit of fruity sweetness, a good amount of caramel and some brown sugar. It was rounded off with some raisin and a little bitterness.
Mainly smooth with only a slight amount of grain and spice. The body is medium and the flavours are well balanced with a nice, bitter end to round things off with.
Probably the best Märzen I have tried, although it isn’t my most frequently visited style. There was a great malt and caramel base with just the right amount of sweetness and bitterness at the end. A well balanced and very enjoyable beer.
Bottle from King&Godfree. Very tasty malty ale, true to style. Aromas of nuts, caramel, with hints of liquorice and chocolate. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness, and average length. Palate is oily, and medium bodied. Amber, with a thin head.
