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.

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.

A disappointment bottled. Better on tap but that doesn’t make up for how much worse it seemed bottled.

The bottle looks good, the beer in the glass also. Very zippy, much foam. Tastes malty-dry, could taste a little bit stronger. Sourish finish. Only an average beer!

Bottle, 6.3%, in anticipation of next week’s trip to Munchen. Pale, pillowy and effervescing. One of those beers that is so highly carbonated you can SMELL the CO2 coming off it. Loads of sweet grassy hops and noble spuce also, with a sniff of almond hinting at the alcohol content. Despite the carbonation, slick and oily on the palate, sliding down oh so smoothly. Gentle piney hops and pale biscuity malt in perfect measure. Impossible to believe this contains 6.3%ABV. Could surely session it by the mass. We’ll see. Sweet, tasty, wickedly drinkable ale.

oldrtybastrd (5003) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 11, 2008
Pours a nice medium golden/amber color. Aromas of wheat bread, caramel malts, and a touch of hops. Flavors of caramel, toffee, and a nice smooth finish.

FishManLA (337) - Abita Springs, Louisiana, USA - MAY 3, 2008
Very light in color for a Marzen. Color is rather pale yellow like a pale lager. Fluffy white head that dissipates quickly. Tastes and smells better than almost all pale lagers, though. Sweet and bread notes on the nose. Clean and smooth taste with notes of malt and just a hint of hops. A refreshing flavor for hot weather. Essentially no finish.

biggmike (480) - Hattiesburg, Mississippi, USA - MAR 19, 2008
Poured a golden/yellow color with a white head that didnt last too long. Aroma had a bit of skunk to it. Also was kind of grainy with a bit of alcohol to the nose. Flavor was malty with just a small bit of hops coming through. Not much lacing. Mouthfeel was a tad thin. Drinkability was ok. Decent beer.

Pours a golden colour with a white head. Did not get much on the nose - some malts. Flavour is malty - caramel with some sweetness. The alcohol gives the beer a little zing. Finish is a bit weak.
