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.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2008 I can’t understand why this beer has such a bad rating. This is my lager of choice if someone said pick a lager to take on a desert island i’d pick this...it’s all chewy malt with a slight pepperiness, looks massive in the glass it’s awesome!

SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - SEP 19, 2008
Bottle from Kegs & Barrels in McKinney, TX. Pours a crystal clear yellow with orange hue, white head. Great aroma of clean malt and some hops. Flavor has a terrific malty taste with excellent use of hops for flavor with a nice bitterness in the end, tastes very clean. Palate is light-med. with high carbonation....Overall, a very nice refreshing, tasty Oktoberfest that is different from what I am used to in this style.....

Parasympatikus (25) - , FINLAND - SEP 19, 2008
Light golden color with white head. Aroma is very light fruity and buttery. Flavor is the same, buttery fruits with a hint of alcoholic taste. Palate is carbonated but quite balanced.

lumpsowers (287) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 18, 2008
Sweetish, overly hopped, some straw flavors? Yeasty, and biscuity. Seemed a little skunked, as the one I purchased was in a green bottle. Malty finish. Eh...

rugbydude05 (478) - Bridgewater, NJ, New Jersey, USA - SEP 17, 2008
12 oz bottle, pours a clear pale golden color with almost a greenish tint. Bubbles/fizz are present throughout the drink almost like champagne. Lacing persists on the side of the glass. Aroma is absent, hints of dough later on in the drink. Taste is malty and sweet, typical oktoberfest. Palate is smooth with no aftertaste. Not bad but not too impressive.

Beltramelli (470) - Campinas, BRAZIL - SEP 17, 2008
Se parece muito com uma Pilsen, mas o que a destaca é a presença forte do lúpulo em maior quantidade. Encorpada e refrescante.

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2009 500 ML bottle in Germany. Pale gold color, with a light head. Light aroma, and non-lingering aftertaste. Over all not a bad beer, very striaght forward. A good beer of this style.

Bottled(500ml). -Golden coloured, medium sized white head, lively carbonation. Pleasant hoppy nose with touch of lemon. Sweet malty, hoppy and grainy with notes of hay. Light alcoholic and rather bitter finish. Simple and good oktoberfestbier. 6.3%.

Received a couple in my care package from Nathan. I do like an Oktoberfest beer. Has the color of melted butter with a large, white head. Minimal lacing. This beer is malty and sweet. Notes of banana and bread. Goes great with salty foods.
