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.

The beer poured into the glass crystal clear pale golden straw with a white and frothy head which eventually fell to nothing but coated the glass from top to bottom.

The aroma was malty and slightly vinous with a Munich and Vienna malt character. The aroma also contained a slight DMS.

The flavor was malty with a crispness and a light hop bite. The bittering was enough to keep the other flavors in check and to dry out the beer somewhat.

The finish was dry with a slightly grassy and slightly spicy bittering that lasted into the aftertaste. The body was medium and the carbonation rather low. Not as clean as the tap version, but tasty.

12 ounce bottle.

10/16/13 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. This obviously travels very well. Smooth & perfectly balanced. Not sure about a Maß bier but this sure would serve well as a full session companion.
