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.

If there is the prefect beer this is it. It starts with the golden color and a great sweet hoppy aroma. Before you taste it you are in love. Then the taste hits you It is perfect smooth, flavorful and sweet yet bitter. Everytime I drink it I can't help but think it is perfect My first ( and I would guess) only 5.0 rating. You have to taste this beer.

BeerBunker (943) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - AUG 14, 2015
Mini keg. Pours golden clear with a foamy white head. Aroma is of malt and spice. Not much to the aroma at all. Taste is of malt, spice, and bread. Lacking in the flavor department. Lingering malty taste. Mouthfeel is light, bordering on watery. Body is light. Not much in the aroma or taste, but it goes down easy.

ryanscourt (972) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 14, 2015
In line with the paler oktoberfest german. Slightly toasty but still drinks like a helles with the pale malt. Slightly sweet but overall balanced at the end. Easy to drink.

jamaty (1346) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 7, 2015
Dorada, limpia y clara. Espuma notable, blanca. Aroma malteado, algo cítrico. Cuerpo medio, carbonatación media alta. Sabor emitentemente cereal, maíz incluso, pero contrarrestado por un tono lupulado bastante amargo al final, seco y especiado. Calor alcohólico que envuelve todo. No acaba de redondear.
