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.

10/02/12 Bottle poured into a pint glass. Thick head. Lager toned, honey color. Aroma of mild, Euro beers such as Heineken. Mild flavor somewhere between drinkable and bland. Perplexing...I expected more flavor but if one were to pound liters of beer in Munich at Octoberfest, this beer would be up to the task. 6.3% ABV seems high for a chugging beer. Not as good as I thought it would be. ---Rated via the Gridfather

Not my favorite style. To me this tastes like a Budweiser with a bit of Bready and honey flavors and aromas. Nothing special.

B ottle @ home. Schiuma bianca abbastanza fine, persistente. Colore giallo dorato cristallina. Profumo poco intenso e poco persistente di malto, di caramello, di cereali al miele. Lieve sentore erbaceo di luppolo. Gusto poco intenso dolce, amabile, poco amaro. Retrolfattivo di caramello. Abbastanza rotonda, equilibrata, abbastanza armonica.

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.

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.
