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.

DrnkMcDermott (2902) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - SEP 16, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2004 Draft. Pours very well, with a foamy German type head. Has a nice roasted malt aspect to it, which actually calls to mind a well-made Vienna lager. In other words, this is a pretty okay beer. The texture and mouthfeel come across like a standard American "dark beer," which can get in the way of one's enjoyment. 2004 rating: Color is light as a Hamm's these days, which can also detract. They keep making them lighter in germany to match the lowest common denominator in drinker preferences...

jamaty (1237) - 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.

lello4ever (249) - ITALY - FEB 13, 2015
La ritengo una grande birra da pasto. Il colore è giallo tendente all’arancio, schiuma molto frizzante e poco persistente, poco all’odore ma al sapore dà il meglio di sè con la sua perfetta carbonazione, un lievito davvero equilibrato che dona una giusta amarezza, appena più alcolica di una normale lager-weizen. Ottima marzen davvero.
