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.

Lalli (243) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 27, 2008
0,5 l bottle. A solid Oktoberfest brew with nice appearance. Somehow, though, the alcoholic sweetness is more pungent than in Paulaner´s version, for instance. A good beer, but perhaps not quite the best festbier out there.

FlyingSwine (174) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - SEP 26, 2008
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear gold, with a nice big head. No lacing. Aroma is light, mainly bread and yeast, and consistent with the style. Nose takes on a metallic note as it warms. Flavor is well balanced, slightly spicy, and a bit sweet. Not overly complex, but pretty tasty. Palate medium bodied, and a bit creamier than I expected. Overall this is a drinkable, but not great Marzen.

Beerman6686 (6109) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2008
Pours a weak yellow color with a white head. Aroma is bland malts and skunk. Flavor is just as bland as aroma, nothing going on here at all.

alobar (3428) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2008
Clear straw yellow color with no head. Aroma of bread/yeast. Tasted skunked-some grass, bread... too carbonated. Did not enjoy this.

pale golden clear colour with a white medium sized head. quite malty and nicely hoppy. sharp and fresh, slightly nutty. uninteresting, but goes with food.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 24, 2008
500 ml bottle. Golden colour. Clean and crisp aroma with some floral hops and nutty malts. A rather sharp hop bitterness mixed with a weird malty flavour. That said the beer is surprisingly malty. Reminds me of a helles bock. Carbonation is high, but works nicely. Has a little too sharp and unbalanced edges for my taste.

austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - SEP 22, 2008
Very pale yellow, foamy white head. Alcoholic, dry malty nose, some popcorn. Sweeter malty flavor, little hops and alcohol. Almost medium bodied, average carbonation. Dull as hell.
