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.

BrettTaylor (483) - Radford, Virginia, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Poured from bottle. Pours a pale gold color with a 1 finger head which is prett long lived, leaves moderate lacing. Aroma of malt, somewhat bready, and a touch of green apple. Tastes malty, bit of yeast, and mild hop bitterness. It is clearly an Oktoberfest, it is not as good as other versions.

Spina @ oktoberfest Genova. Chiara con schiuma persistente. Corpo leggero, carbonazione accentuata, sentori di fiori morti. Non male. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhold

Pretty good Oktoberfest beer. Some fruity notes mostly banana. Would do better with food.

Blekt halmgul med tunn krona. Doftar i stort sett obefintligt och smakar piss. Nä, nu var jag lite elak, men detta smakar avslaget. Ordinarie Hofbräu-brygd är mkt bättre. Förmodligen ska den bälgas i München.

Bottle. Looking lovely in the glass, a sparkling, clear, golden colored body is topped by a creamy, whtie head leaving curtains. It’s a bit sweetish on the nose, at least compared to my preferences, with a nice maltyness in the back, and grassy, almost resiny hops up front. Perhaps a tad too grainy, as well, but that’s in the aroma only. The flavor though is a bit sweet, but for a 6.3% beer it’s ok. Still it’s quite dryish on the palate, far from sticky, with a carbonation level that cleans away what’s left of malty stickyness on the tongue and roof of the mouth. There’s malty sweetness and some white bread in the flavor, with a soft bitterness and some grassy hop flavors. Hints of hay too. The finish could use some more bitterness, the initial flavor too actually, but all in all it’s a nice beer. Too strong to be an all-nighter, but tasteful and pleasant. A pity you have to go to the alcohol monopoly stores to get it in Norway. 140918

Bottles are slightly skunky but still classic marzen style malty sweetness. Mini kegs are the way to go. Super fresh and perfect pairing for the brats and kraut

500 ml bottle. Clear golden body with a medium sized white head. Light but nice aroma of bread, some fruit and grassy hops. Flavor is light malty, medium sweet, some bitterness and light fruit. Medium body and moderate in aftertaste. Nothing really special, but actually a nice and easy drinkable lager. No problem to see people drinking this by bigger volume.

BiffNilsson (220) - Perstorp, SWEDEN - SEP 13, 2014
Ljust gul med vit liten snabbt försvinnande krona. Brödig lätt, tunn doft. Smaken är extremt lättsam och ganska tunn med en umamieftersmak.

330 ml bottle. Brassy gold color. Nice sized fluffy white head. Grainy malt aroma. Sweet maltiness upfront. Crisp dry mid taste. Brief dry finish. Decent flavor. Medium body and complexity.

ruigo (1108) - PORTUGAL - SEP 9, 2014
50cl bottle. Clear golden colour with a nice white head. Malt, light yeasty and grassy hops in the aroma. Average carbonation and light body. Taste is light sweet and medium to light bitter with a dry grassy finish. Overall, a normal unexciting beer.
