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.

This was pretty yellow, but it surprisingly had some malt to it, but it was still a little too light for me. It did have somewhat of a hoppy finish to it, but this was very average

brstp (201) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 10, 2007
On tap at City Beer Store in SF. Nice-looking bubbly yellow color--though has the same appearance that I trash for the NAILs. So it goes, I’m not pretending to be unbiased. Aroma of hay, sugar, a little metal, taste of straw, honey, . Mouthfeel is surprisingly thick and long-lasting for the type, very refreshing. Slightly bitter final note with a faint hop finish. Pretty good.

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 9, 2007
Bright gold pour with a fizzy white head. Metal, caramel, sugar, and grass in the aroma. Butter, wheat, malt, and a slight Heineken hop skunkiness. Good enough.

Bottle. Yellow, orange brew with little to no head. Aroma is of spicy, subtle malts and hops. Flavor is of buttery malts and hops, but has a little peppery feel on the palate. Smooth, but little flavor.

I drank it out of a Maß in the Hofbrau-Festzelt and Hofbrauhaus at Oktoberfest in Munich. It was rather light for an Oktoberfest beer. It was my least favorite of all beer there.

Golden. White had. Metalic, malty and sweey. Also little fruity. Ok. A standard Octoberfest Bier.

Bottle- Sampled @ Siebel during the German style tasting- Clear golden color white head. Nose is DMS, vegetable-esque. Drinking is much nicer, sweet finish.

Bottle. Huh... this is much higher rated than I would have guessed. It has a very light color for an Oktoberfest... golden with a fluffy and big white head that quickly fades away. Aromas are strong of Becks... you know, that skunky hops smell that is just slightly more offensive than Heineken and has some metal note in for good measure. Flavor is lager all the way... corny, metallic and skunky. Can’t see what others are seeing in this.
