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.

cheap (4057) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 1, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2007 Really nice label with a nice history on it - I imagine an oompah band playing in the background as I crack the lid on this green 12 oz bottle. Smells a little skunky. Pours ligth transparent yellow. A lighter flavor and tastes better than Penn O’fest. Not bad. The crown prince ludwig Ok’d this for my tasting. Nice finish with just a little hop/malt linger.

Palidor19 (2949) - Brandon, Florida, USA - NOV 24, 2006
More like a Pilsner than an Marzen, its taste is grassy, high hoppy and medium bodied malts. Still doesnt’t taste like a Marzen though

sinte (341) - Udine, ITALY - NOV 21, 2006
Bottle 0.5 L. Clear amber body, with a white, frothy head, mostly diminishing but with a fair lacing. Aroma is mainly sweet due to the malt, with light hops and alcohol notes. Flavour is moderate-to-hevy sweet with a light bitter character. Body is light-to-medium with a watery texture; flat carbonation; light astringent and alcholic feelings in the finish; maybe a metallic note is also present. Not great, but a pleasent beer.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 13, 2006
Clear, solid gold body with a receding, pure sudsy white head. Aroma has pils malt signatures but also strongly suggests sweet corn. Also includes an acrid yeast note. Sweet, pale malty flavor with honey tones and some moderate peppery bitterness. Like a generic pale lager with a little more gravity. No sign of toasted malts. Nothing compelling here.

Miksu (4948) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - NOV 11, 2006
Bottled. Golden color with small creamy head. Sweetish malty aroma and flavor. Notes of honey and low, hardly balancing bitterness. Dull.

Finn (4210) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 7, 2006
Bottle 0,5l. Bright golden colured. A large fluffy head. Light aroma of malt. Sweet flavour rapidly leading into a heavy malty aftertaste. Dry finish.

HenrikSoegaard (10545) - Randers, DENMARK - NOV 4, 2006
Bottle. Frothy whiyte good mostly deminishing head. Yellow colour. Harsh bitter aroma . Hints of grass and straw. Not very balanced flavor. Only bitterness detected. Acerage finish. OK palate. Not the best Oktoberfest.

PattyBoy (302) - North Liberty, Iowa, USA - OCT 31, 2006
Pours straw thin white head, some lacing. Flavor is sweet, not sure I can really describe the rest. I guess corn and some bitterness. Not offensive, kind of bland, certainly not what I’m expecting for the style.

nick76 (4221) - Tampa, Florida, USA - OCT 29, 2006
The aroma cereal malt, yeast, and grassy hops. The appearance is pale yellow/gold with a smaller medium sized head. The flavor is sweet with what tastes like corn malt and is a little more acidic than I expected. The hops give it a grassy tastes as well. The palate is thin and right for the style. The aftertaste is lightly bitter with plenty of malt. Overall it seems drinkable but not great.

jetzler (622) - oklahoma city, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 28, 2006
Bottle 48F Lager Glass. Light malt aroma, with a bit of hops an only minimal skunk. Pours a very yellow color with a white head, fairly clear but much to yellow to fall within the oktoberfest category, had to recheck the label to make sure its an oktoberfest. Very pilsner like taste with only a small amount of malts fairly low malt taste for an oktoberfest. Light palate and light carbonation, finishes dry, but really put a bit more malt into this brew guys.
