Review: Brooklyn Oktoberfest

An Oktoberfest/Märzen brewed by
Brooklyn Brewery

Brooklyn, New York USA

ABV: 5.5%

Glassware: Pint glass

Poured from the bottle an amber color with a nice tan or beige head. The head was solid and stuck around for a bit. The aroma was spicy and malty with some bread like characteristics. On taste it instantly hits you as a sweet beer, almost English and not German. It seems a bit light in body for what the aroma was and nicely carbonated. A lot of malt flavors in the body and it finished slick. I don’t think this is an Oktoberfest I would hunt down again, though it wasn’t bad and I wouldn’t turn it down if offered.

Beer Advocate food pairing suggestions: Cuisine (German) 

My score: 3.1
