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.

Bottle-A different looking Oktoberfest beer. The brew was a pale yellow color with a fizzy head. The aroma had some hops, a touch of malt and grains or perhaps corn. The taste was better, it had a more malty taste. The beer was a little thin.

Bottled. pale yellow in colour, bubbly white head, lacing. Mild aroma of hops. A somewhat dry, hoppy flavour, enjoyable.

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2007 tra le mie preferite della produzione Hofbrau è questa birra ’speciale’ per la ormai nota e arcinota Oktoberfest, piacevolissima con uno spuntino, simpatica, sicuramente preferibile alla helles ’original’. Comprata meno spesso al supermercato - ma solo perché non si trovava tutto l’anno.

Pours lite-golend blonde, clear with a thinner, but foamy head. Smells hoppy and a little hint of clovey spicey-ness. A little bit lighter on the palate with a smooth malty plum flavor, balanced by a spciey and refreshing hoppy kick. Overall a quenching beer but it seems to stop a little bit short of expectations- not bad.

The Dan Journal #45. Tasted 10/22/06. part of the Autumn tasting. Filtered and dull golden. Slightly fruity nose. Medium bodied and sweet with hints of corn. Well hopped and mildly dry. Nice graham cracker flavor. Really nice O’fest. Might be my favorite of the night..

This is a very good special beer. Refreshing,golden colour,white head. A must to drink eating bratwurst and brez’n at the Hofbrauhaus in Munchen.

Had this on tap at the Hofbrauhaus in Munich and I had to ask if this was a marzen as I thought they bought the wrong beer. I shared a bottle of this years later and it was the same beer. Not half as good as the Avinger. Page 217 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide only 362 out of his 500 Classic Brews to go.

Bottle. Clear golden colour with a medium mostly diminishing head. Weak aroma and taste of malts with hoppy finish. Probably a good session beer, but i dont feel like trying.
