Hofbrau Munchen Oktoberfest!

I have been looking for this style of beer as of late and stumbled across this recognizing the HB from the fest pics on the net.

Serving this from two 12 oz bottles into my 240z mug. it pours clear and golden as your first morning pee after a night of drinking! A nice white whispy ehad which leaves very little lace down the sides of the mug. Smells of Malt Hay and german hops! Reinheitsgebot it states on the bottle following the tradition from 1516. Taste is sweet malt hay hitting you with on style (lets be honest this beer is the style) Hops and a tiny bit of bitterness at the end that mellows into a sticky mouth feel!

Great beer wish I was in Germany But alas I have to settle for my imagination!

Hofbräu Oktoberfestbier has a medium, white head and a clear, bubbly, golden appearance with some lacing left behind. The aroma is of rich, full, and pungent barley malt and sweetness, and the flavor is of sweet, hearty, and bold malt, with a fairly moderate hop bite to balance out the malt liquor-like sweetness. Mouthfeel is medium and a bit slick, and Hofbräu Oktoberfestbier finishes wet, refreshing, and easily drinkable. This beer so much reminds me of major label American malt liquors, but without the corn adjunct or the background cloying sweetness. Overall, I think it’s a very enjoyable one. RJT
