COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Munich Beer Festival, or Oktoberfest, is an event of superlatives - it’s the largest popular festival in the world, staging in the beer metropolis of Munich. Millions of visitors from all over the world flock along every year to enjoy its very special atmosphere. For this occasion, Hofbräu brews a rich, full-bodied beer which goes down ideally with traditional Bavarian cuisine. With its deliciously bitter taste and alcoholic content of 6.3% volume, Hofbräu Oktoberfestbier is as special as the Beer Festival itself.

i will attempt to independently give the same observations about this beer as the other 72 of you, just so my opinion on the beer’s merit has some credibility: rich, dark gold colour. nice decocted malt smell. flavour is nutty/toffee, dried out at the finish by alcohol instead of bitterness. pretty low intensity but good quality straightforward vienna/munich malt character.

Hallstein (138) - Skogn, NORWAY - NOV 22, 2014
Aromas of bready malt, cereal and biscuits with some herbal aromas from the hops. The body is rich, full and a little sweet, but not overbearing. Loads of melanoidins i think. Goes down easy with a slight bitter and dry finish. Quite good, but i’d like it a little lighter maybe. It’s a tad too strong with too little flavor to balance out the alcohol content in my opinion. Still a decent beer though.

Aroma: lightly toasted barley malt, grass & floral hops Mouthfeel: light and crisp with a pleasant mostly dry finish. Flavor: bready malt, a bit of vanilla, some mild grass & floral hops.

Frothmeister (577) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 14, 2014
500ml bottle. Pours a clear pale golden hue with a one finger white head. Malt heavy aromas with honey, light grassy notes, and a faint smell that reminds me of squash. Sweet, with grassy/straw-like malt notes, caramel, honey, and very light hopping that leads into light metallic notes, and woody/dusty malt notes with a little bit of a mineral flavour in the finish. The flavour profile is good, but this is most definitely too sweet. I’m not a huge fan of the style to begin with though. Half the bottle is more than enough for me.

Diabobale (225) - ITALY - NOV 14, 2014
Bevuta alla spina. Molto beverina nonostante qualche grado in più rispetto alla normale. Si presenta di un colore dorato molto carico, con buona schiuma, lunga persistenza e corpo medio

libertine (223) - rochester hills, Michigan, USA - NOV 13, 2014
pours a pale yellow. Aroma is caramel malts, hay, and citrus. flavor is not as sweet as i am use to in a Marzen. Lightly bitter and metallic. Finishes dry. Not to great in my opinion. Maybe im just partial to the American Oktoberfest.
