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.

12 ounce bottle in pint glass. Clear pale yellow with white ring and some lace. Grassy lager aroma. Honeyish flavor with grassy bitterness in finish. Medium body and carbo. Fairly tasty. Not like a marzen but more like a flavorful helles.

alexanderj (3318) - Branson, Missouri, USA - SEP 8, 2007
Bottle poured a yellow-dull gold with a lot of carbonation streams. Good sized white head. Aroma was little funky , malty, grain and bread. Flavor was a little off; a lot of grass and corn/funkiness. Good for an event like oktoberfets, but didn’t like it very much.

omhper (19654) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 4, 2007
Bottled. Clear pale golden, dense head. Spicy grassy hops up front. These spicy hops balance out the sweet, buttery malt. Medium bodid with solid malt impact and salty bitterish finish.

Very light head and a faint hoppy aroma ... very thin texture and mild taste .... has a hint of spices but the finish was disappointing...

Brings me back to stumbling about in Munich. The grain rich nose was the first and most powerful link to my memories of consuming numerous 1 liter mugs of this elixer in 1992. A pleasant surprise at the rip and run today. Goes down smooth and sweet. At least this time I did not end up sleeping under the picnic table during the beer festival. Lightly hopped finish rounds into sweet short-lived mouthfeel. I long for the Oompah band.
