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.

Poured a clear yellow with a smallish head. It is what I remember Munich Octoberfest beer tasted like. Floral, grassy, lisht, with a smooth finish; something for a long, long night at the Fest.

LazyPyro (479) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2016
500ml bottle. Clear and very pale golden yellow colour with a two finger creamy white head, great retention. Aroma is grainy, bready, slight floral hops. Taste of grainy, bready malts, grassy hops, light bitter finish. Well carbonated. Didn’t realise this was 6.3%. Very drinkable and refreshing.
First time trying an Oktoberfest style and I liked it, similar to a lager but much more enjoyable to drink, more flavourful. I’m probably a bit late drinking this in July just a couple of months before it’s BB date, but it didn’t seem at all bad.

Strongish German lager which packs a punch. Not smoothest, taste is strong beer - no complexity. Enjoyable enough but doesn't merit a second bottle. Prefer normal Hofbrau Munchen beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

By far the best, and I mean BEST, brew that I have ever tasted! I first tasted this great bier while at the Hofbrauhaus in Newport, KY after a Reds game.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.
