Poured out of a 5 L party can. One and half fingers of head on a clear, straw colored body.
The aroma is grainy. Nice and straightforward.
The taste is light overall, mild bitterness and a little banana and malt sweetness. Not great, but not horrible.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
The big can it came in looks neat.

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!
