Hacker-Pschorr's Oktoberfest is a lightly, pleasantly crisp Oktoberfest with a mild toasted malt and baked cereal flavor, accentuated by some caramel and cracker-like flavors with mild hopping using German varieties. Enjoyable, but this wasn't as deep or robust as I remembered it being, though also not as cloying as some US examples can be.

Pours a 2.5cm head of beige colored bubbles, with slightly above average retention at 1.5 minutes. The head fades to a thick ring around the perimeter of the glass with small islands of thin residual foam resting, scattered, atop the body. Lacing is quite good, with substantially large blotches and dots clinging to all sides of the glass. Body is a deep golden orange in color, with light bringing out pale golden orange hues. Carbonation is readily visible through the transparent body, moderate in number and activity.

Aroma is of very mild cereal-like graininess (like heavily diluted baked barley cereal) with light yeastiness and noble hop character. Not very robust or deep at present experience, my memory distorted this significantly.

Major flavors are of dilute baked barley cereal, light caramel, faint toasted bread crust, light yeast, and modest + clean German hops. Front of palate is of moderately diluted baked barley cereal, light caramel sweetness, and light yeastiness. Mid-palate experiences increased toasted malt sweetness, light caramel characters, slight grape ester, and light hop bitterness. Back of palate notes continued moderate toasted malt sweetness, increased grape ester (to moderate), light caramel characters, and mild hop bitterness. Aftertaste of pleasantly cracker-like grains, some biscuit and toasted bread, light hop bitterness.

Beer is medium-light to medium in body, with carbonation of medium-low intensity, resulting in a slightly foamy (1/3) and smooth (2/3) mouthfeel that manages to come across as pleasantly crisp. Closes dry with substantial stickiness coating the palate and lips.
