AUGUSTINER OKTOBERFEST BIER

Augustiner Oktoberfest Bier. The last privately owned Munich brewer's version of the Oktoberfest bier.

Technical a Marzen, the Oktoberfest bier takes on a life of its own, with millions of litres of the stuff upended around this exact time of year.

And, if you had a choice of which of the Munich Fest Biers to drink at Oktoberfest, it'd be this one. 

Not only do they draw the water for brewing from their own well, tucked inside the brewery, but it just tastes better than the fest biers from Paulaner, Hofbrau, Spaten, Lowenbau and Hacker-Pschorr - the only brewers allowed to sell beer at Oktoberfest.

For starters, it's stronger than most normal German helles varieties and it pours with a strong head and a richer colour, too.

Then there's the taste. It's just silky smooth, with some of that buttery feel over the tongue that only the very best lagers can deliver.

It's rich in malt, but it never feels sticky or heavy and it's just so wonderfully nuanced that you could drink it until you fell over. Which plenty of people seem to do, given my Oktoberfest experiences. It's just so beautifully drinkable that you can understand people not wanting to stop.

 

10/10
