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.

Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - SEP 21, 2008
This is a very tasty oktoberfest, like a really good, full-bodied, hoppy helles. It is bright gold, a little bubbly, with a very large barely off-white head that very slowly shrinks to a permanent thin top, leaving some foamy rings of lace. The aroma is very nice with a full-bodied bread crust quality along with grass, herbs, some butter, a hint of lemon and zesty. The flavour is similar, a creamy butter quality blended with a strong bread body, some grain, hay, west grass, herbs, lemon zest and hint of pear. It’s zesty, has great sweet-bitter balance with a tingly-zesty bitter finish and a light alcoholic spiciness and warmth. It’s wonderful, complex, always interesting, and very full of flavour.

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.....

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.
