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.

hopscotch (10563) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 3, 2008
Bottle… Clear yellow lager with a large, fluffy, white head. Fantastic, rocky retention. The aroma is of honey and skunk. Medium to full-bodied with prickly carbonation. Sweet and malty, but decently balanced by a crisp Bavarian hop bite. Crisp, minerally, lightly sweet finish.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 30, 2008
The pour was a very pale copper color with almost no head and no lacing. The aroma was very malty with only a bit of light fruit cutting through. The flavor was malty, bready and barely fruity. Thin mouthfeel. Not a whole lot going for this one.

Rynoplasty (700) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 28, 2008
Pours golden with a fairly large white head. Aroma is slightly skunky pale malt. Taste is smooth and malty as well, with a very small taste of hops. A very light marzen, almost more like a helles to me.

Steely (241) - , SWEDEN - SEP 28, 2008
Brilliant golden color with a light white head. Crisp malty aroma with hints of newly-baked bread. Refreshing nice malty flavor with butterscotch and a perfectly balanced hop-bitterness.

BiddleBrau (1144) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2008
Although this does seem to rate well here, I had it on tap at Andy’s and it reminded me of the beers in the Munich tents. Golden with thin white head and light lacing. Clean malty aroma and wonderful malty flavor. Low carbonation gives this a creamy feel on the tongue.

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 (6241) - 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.
