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.

larsga (7307) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 31, 2008
Big white head does not last. Yellow body with vigourous carbonation. Peppery malty oily aroma with meaty notes. Dry-sweet grassy malty papery sulphury taste with toffee notes. Full-bodied. Slick mouthfeel. Dry mealy papery grassy aftertaste. Nice, if a bit strange. (0.5l bottle, Systembolaget, Charlottenberg.)

I’m not really sure why this one is getting low ratings... This was an excellent beer. This is a true Oktoberfest without all the nasty spices us Americans are used to... Wonderful beer... try for yourself.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2009 I’m not sure why this gets such low reviews because it is an excellent example of its kind. Very malty, slightly alchol in flavor with low amount of hops to balance the cereal sweetness. Beautiful aroma pouring an ochre yellow hue you’d expect from a late season Octoberfest.

asheft (2989) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 21, 2008
[bottle] Grainy base malt aroma with notes of apricot and cinnamon. Clear yellow with a white ring and dots. Strong lager flavour: malty and ethanolic with a good amount of bitterness and perhaps even some higher alcohols, acetone. Medium body, moderate carbonation, almost clean finish.
