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.

From Hipercor. In Bavaria glass. Watching Los Soprano 5x09. All you expect in the style very well executed. Ultradrinkable and malty, with some grassy bitterness. A pity it isnt available all year long.

Towey1989 (1820) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2016
Keg at The Font, Manchester. A clear pale golden colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma of bready malts, some grain, slight mineral and subtle grassy, herbal hops. Taste of bready malts, grain, some mineral, slight DMS and subtle grassy, herbal hops. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A dry, lingering, herbal hop bitterness in the finish. Impressed by the amount of hoppiness in this, very grassy and herbal late on. However it’s very grainy and there’s an off-putting mineral and DMS taste throughout. An average Oktoberfestbier overall.

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.

0,5l bottle. Pours golden with medium sized white head. Malty, grassy aroma. Nice balanced bitterness. Thick mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Good.

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.

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.
