Not my favorite German Oktoberfest, but a good beer all the same. Hofbrau's version comes in clear and gold, with a thinner white head. The head lingers on aided by moderate carbonation. THe aroma is very mild, but just hints of malt sweetness and grass. The taste is a little more robust, with more depth to the sweetness, a little bit of biscuit, and a nice hit from the hops. The body is a little thinner and with some carbonation.

Funny, my bottle was green, not brown as in the picture. It was ok, it was a bit skunky and very pale in color.

11.2oz bottle poured into a pint glass
A: Light orange with a thin head
S: Malt, a bit of caramel and a bit of spice

M: Light-bodied, a bit sweet but pleasant
O: No flaws and pleasant flavors overall, fits the style well just not that complex
