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.

12 oz bottle poured in a stein. Pours a clear yellow gold with a finger of white head and ok lacing. Aroma is malts, bread, honey, and floral hops. Taste is malts, grains, mild hops, bread, and a little spice. Mouthfeel is thin and easy to drink in mass quantities. Decent Oktoberfest.

Backlog. Tried on tap at Green Lion Inn. Malty with a hint of sweetness, spices and wheat.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 Draft at 2013 Oktoberfest ZInzinnati. Nice golden hue, aroma 65% pale lager-like and 35% toasted malt, pleasing bittersweet flavor with bitterness a bit more pronounced than expected, nice long aftertaste. This may be the second best marzen I’ve ever had at Cincinnati’s Oktoberfest, with only the brilliantly golden Konig Ludwig Oktoberfest specially brought in several years ago being better. It’s a nice change of pace to have one of the golden hued oktoberfests instead of the usual amber ones.

Couleur blonde, bu directement a l’oktoberfest. Rien de particulier a dire de cette bière une bière typiquement allemande, qui se bois très bien mais rien de très original

Hofbrau's Octokberfest beer is an excellent German beer. It's awesome golden color compliments it's smooth taste that finishes with a slight bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a clear golden with a small white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma of sour-ish herbs and not much more. Some annoying skunk. Taste is slightly grainy, lightly bitter. Body is light, carbonation is high. This wouldn’t push me to buy a ticket to Munich for the Oktoberfest.

I find these octoberfest beers a bit underwhelming. Sweet and high ABV. Not much of a presence or depth. Alcohol is very sweet.
