Review - Brooklyn Brewery's Oktoberfest
"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." -- Brooklyn Brewery
Pours a medium golden brown color with a substantially large, creamy to frothy light brown head with fantastically sticky lacing. As the head diminishes, more and more of the superb lacing is revealed, providing a very enticing appearance. Body is thin with a clear, ruby red hue with still carbonation. Aroma is subtle, very subdued, which is to be expected from this style. Sweet syrupy scent is just a tad present with an overtone of thin maltiness. The first taste reveals a slight sweetness, but as it moves over the mouth, the astringent bitterness takes over with a chalky mouthfeel. Light in body, it has an aggressive carbonation with a gentle fizzy texture.
