I LOVE Oktoberfest and I believe that Brooklyn Breweries take on the style is delicious. There's not much else to say about this except that it is definitely easy drinking.

Try one. The ratings don't look that great but give it a shot!

355 ml bottle poured into a tulip glass. A deep fiery red-bronze color with quick breaking beige head; some light creamy bubbles cling persistently around the rim of the glass. Aroma is rich toasty malts, raisins, brown sugar, and ethereal grassy hops. Faint whiff of grainy alcohol. Delivers some wonderfully authentic Munich malt flavor. I get brown bread, slightly tart fruit (almost citric or perhaps Granny Smith apple), sweeter dark fruit (raisins and plums), a touch of molasses and burnt caramel. Considerable malty depth, with a sturdy medium body and medium-heavy carbonation. Finishes semi-dry I suppose, with some lingering grass/hay, pepper, and orange peel (!) notes. Malts from the genuine source make all the difference here, along with tasteful hopping. One of my favorite widely available O-fests.

From a bottle into an imperial pint glass (tasted side-by-side with Millstream and Summit Ofests)

A: dark copper, massive head, leaving the best lacing.
S: I'm missing something. Slight biscuity sweetness, and a little tart/sour apple cider.
T: A little light bready sweetness, some vinous apple, twangy herbal hops.
M: Light to Medium, a faint buzz toward the back.

Overall: On its own, it was decent. In comparison, this was far and away the least pleasing of the three I was tasting. The herbal and apple notes and lack of richer sweeter bready malt left me wanting quite a bit.
