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.

DuffMan (8628) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 1, 2006
Bottled. Yellow gold, moderate head, poor retention. Low aroma predominantly of malt. Bland palate of weak malt. Thin bodied. Overall no better than average.
Earlier Rating: 11/19/2005 Total Score: 2.8
On tap. At the brauhaus in Munich. Medium golden, frothy white crown. Sweet cereal aroma and flavor, very simple, no noticeable hops. Just okay, but made better by the circumstances under which it was consumed.

bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 30, 2005
Orange gold with a short head that quickly disappeared. A bit of a metallic nose with some peppery alcohol and a sweet buttery taste. Light bitterness, but the sweetness pours in over the top and dominates. Cloyingly sweet, but with a good carbonation and a medium body. If you let in linger, it is too sweet, but guzzling it down it’s quite drinkable.

fuyajo (229) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 19, 2005
Pours to a medium-amber color with a smallish white head. A drinkable beer, but nothing too terribly remarkable.

West side Woodman’s in Madison. Extremely bland with almost no head. Very thin.

PorterPounder (6711) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 6, 2005
Whole Foods, Baton Rouge, La. - 12 oz bottle. Pours a translucent light orange with a thin, tight white head. Aroma is slightly corny with a hint of yeast. Flavor has some of the same elements with a touch of ripening vegetables. Not as sweet as some Marzens can be. Mouthfeel is pleasantly thick. Smooth finish, fades just a bit near the end. Average.

fatty (363) - Perkiomenville, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2005
Pours golden yellow with light carbonation and medium frothing head. Aroma of yeast and hay. Flavor of sweet malt. Thin palate.

scotty (1113) - SCOTLAND - NOV 20, 2005
500ml bottle from Peckhams, this was 6%. Good rich golden colour,fluffy white head, lasts well down the glass. There is a good persistent bead. Nose is quite powerful, with nice fruity hops and soft malt too. There is a touch of sweet malt on the palate, which extends through to the finish. Good malt dominated bier.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - NOV 16, 2005
Pours a translucent golden with an average fluffy white head. Aroma of slight lemon, hay, some yeast and a slight skunkiness. Flavor of sweet malts, sugars and overall an bit watery.

JFGrind (1949) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 7, 2005
Had this on draft at a wedding reception. German breweries for the most part brew a golden colored O-Fest and this was no exception. Some hop bite, medium body and the void of caramel malts I expect in (American) Marzens.

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - NOV 6, 2005
On tap at Firkin’s, Libertyville, IL. Clear golden yellow hued having a lasting large creamy head with good lacing. Sweet malt aroma. Soft carbonation. Medium-bodied that starts dry with hint of sweet malt flavor and finishes dry with light bitterness. A tasty clean, crisp dry Oktoberfest beer.
