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.

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.

janir (216) - Oulu, FINLAND - OCT 21, 2008
Clear golden, bright yellow color with medium, vanishing and lacy white head. Aroma is grainy malty and mildly alcoholic. Flavor is also grainy malty and alcoholic but it is still very smooth. Medium-bodied and foamy carbonated palate. Overall very straightforward beer which is extremely easy to drink while enjoying other thing uch as atmosphere. The beer itself is not enjoyable but it’s absolutely doing the job it’s been brewed for.

JJSuds (16) - California, USA - OCT 21, 2008
Yech! As a big fan of HB Maibock, I was seriously disappointed in this watery, pissy rendition of an Oktoberfest style beer. I’ve relegated the other bottles to beer to cook with.

GMUcrew7 (577) - Mason, Ohio, USA - OCT 18, 2008
Pours clear light golden color with an off white head. Malty grainy aroma, with some bread and a small amount of grassy hops. Sweet malty flavor, with a smooth toasty bready finish. Nice crisp easy to drink beer. I was initially disappointed by the appearance and aroma of the beer, but the flavor was better and it ended up being an ok beer.

Pours clear, golden colour with a white large head. Aroma is strong and malty with fruity, buttery and earthy notes. Full, strong mouthfeel, a bit fizzy. Some metallic notes too. Aftertaste has some alcohol.

MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - OCT 16, 2008
Bottle (355ml) 6%. Poured fizzy yellow with an averaged sized, frothy, off-white head which was mostly lasting. Aroma was of musty grainy malts with floral/grassy hops, parsley, lemon citrus, light yeasty/bread notes and some lychee in the back. Flavour was of sweet grainy malts with a light grassy hop bitterness, lemon citrus, brown bread and some light metallic notes in the finish. Light to medium bodied with lively carbonation, a dry mouthfeel, thin texture and an ok finish.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 13, 2008
While its not a marzen, it’s still a fairly decent brew. Pours a bright straw yellow colour with a little white head. Taste is slightly grainy, malty with noticeable saaz hops in the finish. I’m thinking it may be a pils, not sure though.

glennmastrange (2682) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - OCT 12, 2008
Bottle. Moderate malt aromas of cereal, caramel and light bread, moderate hop notes of herbs, light earth for the yeast, with background notes of brown sugar and wood. Head is small, fizzy white with no lacing and is fully diminishing. Color is sparkling clear dark amber. Flavor starts lighty to moderatley sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery with a touch of dryness and has a lively carbonation. The color of this beer didn’t say Oktoberfest to me, but the taste sure did.

MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - OCT 6, 2008
Off Taps Capital Ale House. Nice malty caramel aroma with some grassy continental hop notes. Can’t see the beer for the ceramic mug. Nice clean malt accentuated flavor. Crisp slightly bitter finish. A tasty beer by all accounts.
