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.

BrettTaylor (463) - 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.

WheatKing (1279) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 21, 2013
Bottle. Pours yellow, not much head. Nose of pils malt, very mild floral. Flavour is very malty,breadish, mineral water, some bitterness at the end. Boring. Different than any other Oktoberfest I’ve had... this is a classic so not saying it’s wrong, just different.

HQT Octoberfest. Bottle. Poured clear. Crisp. Easy drinking, with district German hop and yeast characteristics. A little alcohol aftertaste. Pretty good for German beer.
