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.

harrisoni (12660) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2009 500ml bottle from Cask & Glass. Amber gold colour with lasting white head. Slightly sweet lager aroma, some spice in mouth. Yep, it’s a fine, slightly complex beer with a slight edge to it on the end. 2.6/5 Bottle at Chriso’s Kook Tasting 09. Some raspberry, strawberry fruit and yes, some cardboard, but I love lager. Fantastic.

My local bottle shop must have just flown these in, because this one was also very good. Very pale in colour for the style, golden with a thin white head. Aroma is a little bit skunky, but not too bad. Underneath is some good, if simple, pale malt sweetness. Quite bready. Flavour is similar but leans more toward toast than the aroma suggests. Not much in the way of hop flavour, maybe a bit of grassiness. Lingering fresh grain sweetness. A bit too sweet, but still good.

Very light in color and body. Aroma has some roasting ear corn and is pleasant but muted.

UPDATED: MAR 5, 2007 12oz Bottle: Orangey golden pour with a consistant white head. Crisp malt body, light anise like spicyness and a clean finish. Solid and highly drinkable.

33cl bottle, Wellington, NZ. Sweet hoppy aroma, golden colour, equally sweet flavor with a good strength. Drinking with sausages and mustard, excellent beer for this experience.

On Tap at Oktoberfest: Man what an experience. Sure my rating is likely skewed by the circumstance, but it was a great circumstance. I felt the beer looked great, a nice golden color with minimal head though it had some carbonation. And a rather nice flavor, had quite a few of these! And enjoyed them all.

StueyD (1066) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2006
A deep orange coloured beer with a light, frothy, white head. A distinctly wheaty nose has hints of citrus fruit and a slight sweetness in the finish. The taste is the same - a dry wheatiness followed by a sweet malty flavour and the hints of citrus fruit again. The finish is dry and wheaty.
