Poured a nice amber. Short lasting white head completely dissipates. The aroma is mild and nondescript malt with a slight astringency. Taste loses the latter but keeps the former. A bit too much carbonation on the palate.

Serving: 12 oz both poured into a Brooklyn Brewery tulip pint glass.

Appearance: Clear, rich copper color. Medium, bubbly off-white head, recedes with minimal lacing.

Smell: Full, malty aroma with toasted grains and sweet caramel.

Taste: Malty, though not as much as the aroma hints. Hops are muted but some spicy and bitter flavors come through.

Mouthfeel: A bit light in body and carbonation.

Overall: A straightforward, drinkable Oktoberfest though somewhat light in body.

I am not a big fan of Brooklyn on the whole. That being said, I like the Oktoberfest quite a bit. The only negative is the spice (clove?) on the finish. Other than that the beer is a beautiful orange/brown cloudy color with a 1 finger head when poured into a goblet glass. There is a fine mixed spice smell that translates nicely to the front half of this beer. The one dominate spice on the back half brought this beer down slightly for me. Body is solid. Best offering by Brooklyn of those I have had - will seek out other new Brooklyn beers, something that I was avoiding in recent months.
