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.

Diabobale (242) - 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 (233) - 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.

OOKPIKABLE (119) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 9, 2014
Pours golden with a few fingers of head. A bit of malt on the aroma. Tastes mainly of biscuity malt. Refreshing. Just fine.

Phenomenal authentic Oktoberfest from Munich. Unlike American Oktoberfest beers this one pours clear pale yellow service in a 11.2 fluid oz bottle that is green so the skunking this is very apparent but when poured in the class the beer breed is the beer excels and you feel like you're in Germany. Found the bottles at Wines & more in Mansfield Massachusetts however Five Horses Tavern in the South End of Boston has this on tap. Cheers! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Inbreak (2432) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - NOV 7, 2014
07.10.2014, 0,5l bottle @ home:
Big creamy longlasting head, very light color. Aroma is very mild, caramel malts, hay, nuts, grass, almond cake. Taste is slightly sweet, caramel malts, hay, minerals, nuts, grass, toast. Little bitterness, slightly watery mouthfeel. Boring.

Bottled. I definitely love the balance of this beer. It’s very easy to drink, without being tasteless or insipid. Some sweet malt, a light biterness, some hay notes. A good sample of German quality beer!

Jesterdeal (1984) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - NOV 3, 2014
6 pack shared with brother. Aroma is earthy hop, caramel malt, and some cardboard. Pours light amber with nice carb and small head. Taste is earthy, cardboard, and slight pine up front with a sweet caramel and bread crust finish. Just sweet enough to keep this together but light enough to chugalug. Prost.
