Bottle. The pour was a sparkling clear reddish brown with an average sized (1-2 finger) off white fizzy head that was mostly diminishing and had fair lacing which somewhat stuck to the glass. The aroma was of a toasted bread malt, a mild grassy hop and a earthy yeast with a hint of caramel. The taste was moderately sweet with a light hint of caramel in the beginning and finished with a nice malty sweet flavor that had a mild hoppiness to it at the end. The flavor stayed with you for a decent amount of time allowing for the taste buds to fully enjoy all this brew has to offer. Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and dry yet just a little oily in texture with a nice soft carbonation. Overall the maltiness and mild sweetness of this brew works so wonderfully together. No wonder they call it the original. This just so happens to be the first Oktoberfest I ever tasted many years ago and in my opinion still is one of the best.

Originally rated on 2/14/09. I am trying this one in mid febuary so its not too fresh, brewed 6 of 2008. Anyway it pours a mid to deep amber body, no carbonation or head to speak of. Faint aroma of caramel malt, flavor had the same carmael malts but they were more pronuonced along with some spice, and it had a dry finish. Overall it was old but still decent anyway, i would like to give it another shot next fall

Pours a rusty copper color. Thin off white head. Substantial lacing. Aroma of bread, nuts, and rye. Taste of toast, malt, caramel and nuts. Great mouth feel. Was overjoyed to find a left over October fest beer in the middle of March. One of the best October fest beers I’ve ever had.

Pours a lovely copper with a fine, staying, creamy, white head. Aroma has rye bread, sweet malts, soft grass. Medium carbonation, fine dryish and creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is quite sweet, caramel, still some rye bread, chewy malts. Lingering mild bitter grassy finish.

Bottle (as "Original Oktoberfest"). Pours bright copper color with off-white head and some lacing. Bread crust malt aroma with almond and caramel notes. Biscuit malt with caramel notes followed by dry hop bitterness (some grapefruit notes). Medium body. Dry, mouthcoating finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I had tried both Paulaner and Ayinger Octoberfest Marzens prior to Hacker-Pschorr. I thought the other two were very good but this was noticeably better in aroma and taste.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear light brown color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is all malt. The taste is rich toasted malt. An excellent beer.
