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.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - SEP 7, 2008
Fresh bottle poured into proper glass. Holds a dense white head. Aroma is doughy with grains and a slight metallic aroma. Flavor is more on the sweet side than the grassy side, which I was hoping for. Some honey notes are present also along with a not horrible butteriness. I’ve had this a lot over the past week and I don’t recall this beer being so sweet.

(Draught at Old Bank, Turku, 2008-08-30) Pale golden. Clear. Medium sized quickly disappeared white head. Metallic and lightly grassy nose. Medium bodied dry palate with lot of carbonation. Lightly grapefruit, bitterness and fruitiness in taste.

Clear pale straw color, white head. Sugary sweet alcohol scent. Sweet alcohol taste. A bit thin weak mouthfeel. Low bitterness. Some perrpry bitterness from alcohol. Not very pleasant.

raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - AUG 30, 2008
Bottle 0,5 l (6,3 %). Clear golden, thick white head. Nose is strongly malty, a bit alcoholic sweet, honeyish. Flavor is malty, sweetish, nicely hopped for a märzen, quite alcoholic and even bockish. Maltiness doesn’t quite cover the alcohol, which makes this a bit boozy rather than refreshing or a treat.

Love the octoberfest. Quality from a quality brewer. Best out of the tap at an Uberstein. This is slightly better than the original. Goog with brats.

17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 27, 2008
Pours clear light golden with lots of fine bubbles and a thick smooth creamy white head. Sweet malty aroma with some grassy noble hops. Medium sweet upfront caramel malty taste, almost like a mai-bock, followed by light grassy hops and a distinctive alcohol finish. Medium body very crisp and a bit creamy.

dmtroyer (431) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 20, 2008
12oz. Boy this takes me back to Germany. Pours clear golden with a white head that disappears. Not much in the way of aroma (at least cold), mostly some generic malt. Body is almost perfect, smooth sweet malt on a highly carbonated palate make for smooth sailing. Not my favorite märzen but it is quite tasty.

Easy drinking, deep golden Oktoberfest enjoyed from bottle. The green bottle does it no justice. Not what I was hoping for. My anticipation got the best of me. I could drink this all day but I wanted a little more oomph from the malts. It does have its own distinct taste, for sure.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - AUG 2, 2008
Poured a light golden hue with a thin white head which faded fast. Mildly carbonated. Aroma was somewhat sweet with malt notes. initial taste was mostly caramel like malt notes, but was balanced out by a corny note. It seemed thick on the tongue, far thicker than the appearance indicated.
