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.

jake65 (3349) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - OCT 17, 2007
Draft at TFD, Boise: Pours a clear yellow/golden color with a large white head. Nose is mild of lager malt and grass. Taste is very mild and sweet with malts. Ever so slight bitterness. Boring.

mvcramer (243) - Lexington, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 16, 2007
1L on draft at HofBrau Haus during 2007 Oktoberfest tent in Munich. Pale golden color and nice hoppy notes on finish, but overall not the best that Munich has to offer. Not a beer that I would refuse in the USA, but given the abundance of amazing beers to be had in Munich, this one was lacking. HBH is derided as a tourist trap and you definitely pay for the atmosphere (singing, chanting, the oompah bands, etc.) than the great beer. The American equivalent of this beer/venue experience is a cold bud at Fenway Park on a summer night – it quenches your thirst, tastes fine and enhances the moment, but the atmosphere overrides the quality of the beer.

Bottled. Clear dark golden with a firm white foam. Malty aroma of cookies, white bread and cookies with hints of metal and boiled vegetables. Malty of bread and nuts with touches of metal, grass and nuts. Short finish of bready pale malts.

luv2brew (196) - Chesterfield, Virginia, USA - OCT 13, 2007
This was pretty yellow, but it surprisingly had some malt to it, but it was still a little too light for me. It did have somewhat of a hoppy finish to it, but this was very average

On tap at City Beer Store in SF. Nice-looking bubbly yellow color--though has the same appearance that I trash for the NAILs. So it goes, I’m not pretending to be unbiased. Aroma of hay, sugar, a little metal, taste of straw, honey, . Mouthfeel is surprisingly thick and long-lasting for the type, very refreshing. Slightly bitter final note with a faint hop finish. Pretty good.

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 9, 2007
Bright gold pour with a fizzy white head. Metal, caramel, sugar, and grass in the aroma. Butter, wheat, malt, and a slight Heineken hop skunkiness. Good enough.

Bottle. Yellow, orange brew with little to no head. Aroma is of spicy, subtle malts and hops. Flavor is of buttery malts and hops, but has a little peppery feel on the palate. Smooth, but little flavor.
