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.

Pours a bright golden colour and has low carbonation for a lager it has a malty and slightly fruity aroma and it tastes very good for a lager to its smooth malty and fruity nice lager.

Worst oktoberfest i’ve tried, with none of the elements typical to the style. Smells like a Heineken, which I find nasty. Clear golden color looks like adjunct swill. Taste has some redeeming malt character, and it finishes smooth. Glad I only picked up a single.

Beautiful crystal clear golden yellow body with a foamy white head. Bready, German lager aromas. Delicious yeasty bread flavor and medium bodied. A little lemon tartness and good noble hop bitterness. There’s a subtle astringency that for some reason (unfortunately) reminds me of American light lager flavor. Finishes with a lasting noble hop bitterness and residual alcohol. Very good Oktoberfest beer!

RCx240 (134) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 7, 2015
Pours clear, pale gold. Small, bubbly white head. Aroma of bread, caramel, dough. Taste is malty, slightly sweet, a bit earthy. Light body, with a thin and watery consistency. Average carbonation. Finishes crisp, refreshing, with a slight lingering sweetness. Refreshing and highly drinkable but nothing to write home about.

In a flight at Hackney’s Printers Row. Clear yellow pour. Plenty of white bread and a whiff of booze on the nose and palate. Light sweet caramel. Clean finish. Not much to it.

500ml bottle into weizen glass. Pale amber beer with towering solid white head. Faint grainy nose. Medium carbonation, fine bubbles. Flat mouthfeel with slightly dry grainy finish. These Oktoberfest beers are obviously designed to be drank quickly and often. Very smooth, goes down easy.

Leafs93 (1924) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 4, 2015
Pours gold with a trace of a white head. Aroma is earthy, straw and hay. Taste is sweet with light acidic tartness. Light bodied, smooth and an enjoyable brew all around.

Faint malt aroma, okay head. Nice sweet lager flavour with malt notes. Not bad, not great.

Appearance: clear straw with one finger of rocky white head, excellent retention and good lacing. (4/5) Aroma: light biscuity pale malt, honey, grassy. (5/10) Taste: mild sweet, very mild bitter. (5/10) Medium-light body, moderate carbonation, crisp finish. (3/5) Yeah, this tastes like the kind of thing you’d drink litres of at the Hofbräuhaus München. While listening to the oompah band. And eating pretzels as big as your head. Not exciting, but authentic. Now I want to go back to the Hofbräuhaus... (12/20)
