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.

Rating #1251 - 12.09.2014 - On tap @revolutionyeg. Clear golden coloured pour with a bubbly white head. Aroma has a hint of malty sweetness, and a bold earthy hop aroma. Medium carbonation. Bubbly, dry mouthfeel, medium-bodied. Light bitterness in the finish, quite smooth. Excellent brew.

Fizzy light lemon look and flavor. Grassy mild hops. Refreshing and hides the ABV well. Good on the beach I imagine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap. Served a clear golden color with a nice head that fades. Aroma of malt sweetness, hint of grain and hops. Taste of a mild caramel sweetness and bit of grain. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Fairly light body, smooth with a festive feel. Good seasonal beer that goes down easy.

Bottle to pils glass Light lemon, bread, wheat, and other grains. Crystal clear yellowish amber with a lazy effervescence and a 1/2 cm creamy white head. Taste is malt, bread, a little skunk and pepper. Honestly, this ok. It’s not a great beer, by any means, but not too bad.

Worst oktoberfest i’ve tried, with none of the elements typical to the style. Smells like a Heineken, which I find nasty. Clear golden color looks like adjunct swill. Taste has some redeeming malt character, and it finishes smooth. Glad I only picked up a single.
