In this beer blog, we are going to get into another seasonal from Brooklyn and it is their Oktoberfest. if you read my earlier beer blog posts about this brewery, you know the history of this brewery. If you have not read those beer blog posts, please, read those beer blog posts about this brewery. Let us get into beer.
It has a clear dark copper to amber color with a white head on this fall lager. The smell is a slight malty to hints of caramel. The taste is a sweet heavy caramel notes with a dry caramel aftertaste. This beer style leans has a drinkable beer.
Here is a description from the beer bottle:
Please enjoy Brooklyn Oktoberfest, a rich, malty version of the lager brewed for the fall festival which originated in Germany with the betrothal of the Crown Prince of Bavaria in 1810. Brooklyn Oktoberfest is in the märzen style an amber lager brewed in March and stored cold through the summer for sale in autumn.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
Closing, I will be the first to say that I am not a real big fan of this brewery. There is not too many brews that they make that I enjoy. This brew gives me hope from this brewery. I had it in the past and I thought it was average. I know this brewery does not really change their recipe each year. I do not know what it is but this year’s version is pretty good. There is a nice balance on this brew. It is not too overly malty like most Oktoberfest brews. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
