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) Clear golden colour with a medium foamy white head. Malts accentuated aroma, flavour and taste also with toasted elements, complemented with a soft fruitiness and a soft bitter finish.

This is not a bad beer. It’s smooth, with a slight bitter after taste that does not disappoint. Alot of warmth in this fall beer! I think a 1.9 is a little harsh.

Bottle. Golden color with no head. The taste is a full malty body with a balanced hoppy flavour.

jgb9348 (4636) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 12, 2005
Super clear blondish coloured body with a tiny orange tint and a nice white head. Wierd colour for the style - very light - but still looks acceptable. Aroma of malt, cardboard, nuts, raisins, cherries and some light spices. Medium-bodied; Spicey flavour with nuts and malt most prevalent. Aftertaste hits hard - bitter up front with some sweeter tastes lingering behind. Overall, not a great beer and too bitter & malty for me. Not close enough to the style that I’m used to, but its worth drinking if you appreciate more of a malty, spicery marzen. I sampled this 12 ounce bottle purchased at Total Wine in McLea, Virginia on 01-March-2005.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Rather pale with a limited head. Slightly watery but has an intriguing and very pleasant soft, sweetish malt-character. By far the maltiest Oktoberfest I’ve had so far. Limited bitterness. Very quaffable 111199

It had been years since I had seen this on the streets here in the South. I remember it being in a bottle with a traditional blue checkered foil label of a brewery in Bavaria. When it reappeared, I was quite dissapointed. Perhaps what we had here before was a Marzen and not a true Oktoberfest. Not much malt flavor at all. Very alchohol in taste, with a sugar sweet taste, instead of malt sweet. Smooth and not bad, not just the ultimate Oktoberfest I remembered.

An orange beer with a white head. The aroma is malty and hoppy, while the flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel and hops.
