Pours a rich amber with a think white head, which didn't last long.

Aroma is sweet, no noticeable hops, and sort of buttery. Not as clean as expected.

Crisp and sweet taste up front, somewhat balanced with bitterness, but without a hop flavor to speak of. Some caramel or butter flavor. A little bit of breadiness in the malt profile.

Mouthfeel is light to medium, somewhat creamy, with good carbonation. Very smooth.

Crisp and clean beer, despite the diacetyl flavor - I'm assuming I just got a bad batch. Malt obviously takes over, but is well balanced in the flavor. Not a terrific Marzen, but certainly drinkable.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured form a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass- pours a clear amber color with one finger of bubbly head that dissipates quickly, leaving no lacing.

Smell is very good- rich, buttery roasted (toasted?) malts. A little spice in there, maybe some noble hops. Super solid.

Taste is pretty good but somewhat lacking in robustness of character. Definitely get the roasted malts towards the end, some caramel up front, a tiny bit of citrus (suprising) hops. Again, a little spice in the mix.

Mouthfeel is decent but a little too watery, too carbonated. I like my Oktoberfests rich and smooth- this one has a medium light body and is a little to prickly on the tongue. I'm not a fan of Brooklyn so for me this is one of their better beers, if not a great oktoberfest.
