COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is the beer that they serve only at Oktoberfest. It is NOT sold in North America. It is a much lighter beer than the common Oktoberfest-Marzen.

Fom tap: Light orangeish color with a nice head. Aroma is malty, but weak. Flavor is on, but nothing exceptional. Malt prevails but is not as strong as in the better Octoberfest beers.

Let me start by saying that oktoberfest might be my favorite lager style. My opinion is biased. I like the toasty aroma of this one. Probably less bittering hops than some, making for a smooth quaffability that I find hard to resist. Fantastic with pizza.

Lubiere (9877) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 2, 2006
On tap at Pub Italia. Golden coloured with lacing white head. Sweet perfumey malt in aroma, with light soapy hops. In mouth, crisp biscuity malts, with faint german hops, lacking in character. Hohum beer.

Pretty good casual brew. Simple on the palate, easy to drink. Not as good as some Octoberfests, but enjoyable nonetheless.

I’m pretty sure this is what Beer Bistro has on tap right now, despite the description here (keeping in mind we did get this version in Toronto last year). Anyway, not really a big deal has it is pretty average - bad. Slightly sweet and a few hops in aroma. Light yellow (looked like any standard macro lager to me), thin small white head. Harsh corny sweet taste. Lingering bitterness. This was a tough one to drink the whole glass of with an otherwise fantastic dinner - followed it up with a fresh pint of Church Key Holy Smoke (when it is fresh on draught one of the best Ontario beers you can get IMHO) and preceded it with Mill St. Oktoberfest, (which was fantastic), so all was not lost!

pivnizub (8793) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 1, 2005
On draught live at the Oktoberfest: Pale golden coloured; not very long lasting white head; a mainly malt accented brew, little bitterness in the finish; soft and easy drinkable.........

Dorqui (2105) - Brescia, ITALY - SEP 19, 2005
Hacker-Pschorr Oktoberfestbier. On tap at Bierhaus (Brescia). Compact and fadingfoam, much unstable and brittle. Limpid yellow color, little shining and fizzy. Alcohol and medium malty scent, little pungent and watery. Fresh and dry taste of malt and alcohol, much smooth and drinkable. Good slightly hoppines end.

Not the best oktoberfest lager out there. Mild malty test with medium carbonation and a slight citrus taste.

Tiny bubbles, In my glass. Too bad they don’t make me happy. Malty sweet. Carmel. Thin body. Ein maB und eine Brezeln would make this one a little besser. Prost!

lots of butterscotch flavor. it’s just too sticky sweet for a beer. I’ll continue my quest for an impressive Oktoberfest
