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.

Aroma is a pretty standard plisner aroma, defintely good, no negative points although nothing special. Appearance on point, decent foam and correct colour. Taste is ok, definitely enough flavour, smooth bitterness. No really fresh hoppy taste. The aftertaste is slighty alcoholic, which I am not looking for in such a beer. Palate is good, nothing stands out. Overall decent beer, not too sweet like Paulaner Oktoberfest, but definitely not special.

Grisza77 (556) - Poznań, POLAND - SEP 16, 2016
Jasnozłote, klarowne piwo o dość obfitej pianie, która pozostaje do końca w formie warstewki na powierzchni. Aromat i smak głównie słodowy, gdzieś w tle majaczy chmiel. Goryczka niska. Ogólnie całkiem przyzwoite, typowo niemieckie słodowe piwo, pijalne, w sam raz do biesiady.

minihame2 (466) - Oulu, FINLAND - SEP 13, 2016
Clear, yellow colour with a creamy white head. Mild, malty, bready aroma. Soft but mild taste with faint bitterness toward the end. Creamy mouthfeel, soft but low carbonation. It’s alright again but not a whole lot for me to enjoy.

Bottle. Clear golden liquid, white moderate frothy head. Not that stable. Grainy nose with honey malts & minimal yeast. Robust medium to full body, oily. Clean malty taste. Honey, grains, some biscuit. Notable grassy bitterness. Well balanced. Long hoppy finish. Very enjoyable. Good

11.2 oz. bottle. Pours a pale straw color, very clear, and has a large fluffy white head. High levels of carbonation. Aroma of light malts and hay. Taste is light malt, grass, maybe hints of bread. Finish has a mild bitterness. Refreshing and easy to drink.
