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.

jamaty (1148) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 7, 2015
Dorada, limpia y clara. Espuma notable, blanca. Aroma malteado, algo cítrico. Cuerpo medio, carbonatación media alta. Sabor emitentemente cereal, maíz incluso, pero contrarrestado por un tono lupulado bastante amargo al final, seco y especiado. Calor alcohólico que envuelve todo. No acaba de redondear.

lello4ever (240) - ITALY - FEB 13, 2015
La ritengo una grande birra da pasto. Il colore è giallo tendente all’arancio, schiuma molto frizzante e poco persistente, poco all’odore ma al sapore dà il meglio di sè con la sua perfetta carbonazione, un lievito davvero equilibrato che dona una giusta amarezza, appena più alcolica di una normale lager-weizen. Ottima marzen davvero.

On bottle from Vinmonopolet Norway, on order. Clear golden color, good foam. Aromas of fruits, lesser honey and some malt. Medium body & complexity . Some immediate sweetness, balances quite well. Enjoyable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tectactoe (3099) - Michigan, USA - FEB 7, 2015
Bottle: Mostly clear amber body, light copper tints with a gray, off-white layer of bubbly foam on top. Aroma is pretty skunky, lightly metallic; notes of burnt grains, dirty earth, floral bitterness, some bread. Not loving the metallic skunk, though. Flavor is pretty metallic, too, kind of astringent with each sip. Bitter, lots of earthy notes & almost over kilned maltiness. Has a touch of bready, toasted sweetness hidden in there, but it’s faint. Slightly gummy. Kind of stale. Skunk comes through in the aftertaste with that lingering metallic & caramel malt... Not really digging this one. Tastes old. Might be? Meh.
