Copper with a white head. Both the aroma and flavor are centered around malt. Slight roasted malt character in the finish which is dryer than expected. Classic Oktoberfest!

Limited Edition. 500ml flip top bottle. Golden color...but more body and taste than most Oktoberfest. ...drier version of its vererable Amber sister, Original Okterfest.

freretoc (848) - Besançon, FRANCE - NOV 13, 2014
Bue à la pression en 33cl au VnB avec Renobob, couleur blonde mousse intense tout comme l’effervescence, une bière assez sucrée sur le malt, caramel et citronnée, agréable en bière de soif.

Renobob (875) - Besançon, FRANCE - NOV 13, 2014
Bue à la pression. Blonde dorée, belle mousse blanche. Sucre, miel au palais, amertume en arrière-goût un peu trop présente.

Whenever I drink a Hacker Pschorr beer I think about the history, and the fact that I am drinking this beer almost 600 years after the brewery was founded. That's a lot of time to get it right. This beer is made for mass production of course, but it's solid nonetheless and I can't help but think of the hundreds of Oktoberfests and the patrons who have enjoyed it there. This one is officially in my annual Oktoberfest rotation for life. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

markas101 (1900) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 31, 2014
50 cl bottle, Calgary, AB, Canada via Coop. Light hazy yellow. Faint aroma of wheat and bright hops. Somewhat sweet, medium body, with honey and pepper. Long peppery finish.

On tap at the 9-27 Munich Oktoberfest. Found a few open seats at the Hacker-Pschorr tent after searching tents for an hour and stayed there the whole time. Drank way too many liters of this.......... Anyway, poured a clear golden color with a huge foamy white head on each. Aroma of straw and grass, wheat, and some hidden fruits in the background. Taste was straw, wheat, some pear, and a hint of barnyard. Body felt light, but boy did I get filled up from drinking these all day. Fun experience and decent beer.

patricks110 (1776) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 28, 2014
QUite bland and boring with an overall toasted malt, light citrus hop and grassy German backbone. Pours a golden yellow with a frothy, soapy off white head that leaves tons of lacing around the glass. The nose is grainy and cereal based with light noble hops and mild citrus. Easy to sip and a nice well balanced medium bodied lager. Nothing exciting, but good overall.

Pint at St Veronus Oktoberfest. Pale, malty, a touch of spice, medium sweetness, goes well witb pretzels. What more do you want?

gregorymconway (140) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 22, 2014
500ml stein on draft from St. Veronus. Transparent straw body with a creamy head leaving a lot of nice lacing. Cereal and bready notes. Extremely sessionable and light boded. Minimal hop presence and a approachable carbonation level.

Gerbeer (2001) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 20, 2014
500 ml bottle. Pours a clear dark gold with moderate head. Aromas of grain, sweetened lemons, sweet malts, and paper. Flavors of paper, corn, grass, and bitter hops. Off or normal? Best before 3/15...
