Hofbrau Oktoberfestbier brewed by Hofbrauhaus Munchen with an ABV of 6.30% Keep in mind this brew comes out of a green bottle. This brew pours out a nice golden amber color with a nice white head. The smell is skunky with some grains. I''m not big on the smell of this brew. Now for the taste it is skunky with some grains. This brew goes down smooth but you have to get over the skunkyness of this brew. Overall I'm giving this brew a 2.5 out of 5.
If I can find this brew in a can or brown bottle I think it would be a lot better. The skunky smell and taste is the killer of this brew.

I gave this a 3.75 the other day and I now see it shows as a 5.
Maybe it was the extra alcohol - which wasnt very noticable - it was very drinkable, but too much carbonation (in spite of a very agressive pouring with a huge head). I do like the hoppiness though. Will try review properly next time.

Poured from a green 11.2 oz. bottle. Has a pale light golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is kind of grassy, maybe a touch skunky. Taste is very light, some malts, some light grassiness, more pilsner like than oktoberfest in flavor profile. Feels light in the mouth and overall, while a drinkable and decent beer, there are way to many better examples of this style to recommend this one.
