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.

This is my first time coming across this seasonal release from Brooklyn Brewery, and although still very good, this is isn't in the same category of greatness as many of Brooklyn's other beers. From the bottle, this poured an average reddish copper color with white foam, par for the style. Aroma is a faint unsweet caramel malt with interesting notes of straw (apparently from hops) and raisiny fruit (apparently from malt). Flavor is a moderately sweet caramel malt and warm bread, with a touch of noble hop bitterness and cool hoppy aftertaste. A true lager, but nothing too impressive. Still, enjoyable and plenty worthy of any authentic Oktoberfest celebration.

Helt ok. Drack den på tågstationen i NY, släckte min törst men inget jag lär leta efter igen. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12floz bottle, bottling code smudged, $1.75 unit cost. Bright copper in color with a thin beige head as poured in a pint glass. This octoberfest has more of a butterscotch aroma than compared to others. This is a pretty good version of the style. It's true to it and is devoid of flaws, just a solid medium-bodied, German caramel malt lager.

Aroma: malt, bread, caramel and grass. Taste: sweet malt dominates, though other flavors like bread, caramel, citrus and grass enhance beer complexity. High drinkability ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
