Hacker-Pschorr Oktoberfest pours a deep, dark copper, capped by one-inch of white head that has little retention. Rich, toasted malt aromas are met with some spiciness. sweet malt flavors are out front, followed by slight hop bitterness and a dry finish. Medium in body and carbonation, this is a classic lager, and our personal favorite lager style.

Prost!

***UPDATE***

9/9/2012.. The beer is ESPECIALLY good this year! Its the best batch since 2006. This is quickly becoming my favorite beer of all time!

Not much to say other then this is in my lengthy experience of beer drinking, one of the finest beers EVER...

It IS my favorite...

Every year around the end of August I get very excited about the return of my favorite beer.

I can only say that I HOPE the brewery of this fine product does not cheapen its nature for greater profits...and just CHARGE more as I will gladly pay it..

Read the EXCELLENT subsequent reviews of this beer..I can do not better then what has already been written.

A. It has a deep amber color with a foamy tan head and lacing with a few bubbles.

S. Pungent caramel and malt scent.

T. Very crisp taste. It has an apple taste and spicy. Malts with a sugary aftertaste.

M. So refreshing and balanced.

O. I think this is my favorite Oktoberfest.
