The Hacker-Pschorr Oktoberfest is one of the highest rated traditional German Oktoberfest and for good reason. While the Spaten Oktoberfest holds a spot for me the Hacker-Pschorr may be the complete German Oktoberfest. It poured a clear deep amber with a full white head. The aroma was malt and malt only with caramel malt as the dominant aroma. The taste followed suit with a perfect sweet malt that was fully committed to the nutty caramel malt profile with little to no hop presence. It’s was a fully malt embraced beer that makes me want to be in the big tents in Munich hoisting a stein. Hacker-Pschorr is excellent Oktoberfest that is a signature of the season.
