Havent had a brooklyn since July when I got a 12 pk of Summer and recieved a free Brooklyn beer glass. Been looking forward to using this glass for another Brooklyn beer.

A: This beer pours a dark orange, amber color with a solid 1 inch finger head.

S: Aroma consists of sweet spice and roasted malts. Has a hint of Pumpkin , hazelnut, and cinnamon.

T: Has a very nutty flavor consisting of hazel nut, much brown ale character. Has a faint, underlyning of pumpkin spice, brown sugar, caramel, and bready malts.

M: The mouth of this beer is sweet, spicy and full of holiday character. A mix between a Brown ale and a Harvest beer. No carbonation, but very drinkable.

O:Good Oktoberfest beer, losts of nutty, malty flavors. I dont have much experience in Brooklyn, but so far, I have experienced some quality, craft beers!

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.
