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.

M_Sack (276) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 15, 2013
Bottle. Pale gold. Frothy, cream coloured head. Aromas of honey, yeast, caramel malt and a touch of grass. Similar flavours - honey, caramel malt, lager yeast and slightly grassy hops. Simple and short palate and the high abv sticks out a little. Went well with the pork knuckle and sauerkraut.

northropfrye (1946) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 10, 2013
On tap at Barley Brothers Winnipeg. For this style of beer, I found this quite enjoyable. Darkish orange body, fragrant aroma, sweet flavour. One dimensional, but worth trying.

Draft at the Peculier Pub in Greenwich Village. Richer yellow, clear. Apple cider aroma, sweet juice malts and slight tart orange finish. A bit sour and very clean palate. Tasty enough.

BrettTaylor (395) - Radford, Virginia, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Poured from bottle. Pours a pale gold color with a 1 finger head which is prett long lived, leaves moderate lacing. Aroma of malt, somewhat bready, and a touch of green apple. Tastes malty, bit of yeast, and mild hop bitterness. It is clearly an Oktoberfest, it is not as good as other versions.
