3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap in Miami shared by Oakes. Cloudy brown pour with a decent sized beige head. Great caramel malt aroma. Flavor is full of caramel, nuts and is a bit sweet. Do yourself a favor and try the Hofbrau beers fresh on tap...what a difference.

Tap at Hofbrauhaus Las Vegas. Pours a uniformly dark brown appearance with a fairly big tan head. Some nuttiness in the nose but mostly just a dark brown lager aroma. Flavor isn’t too exciting with a sweet brown lager flavor with a bit of nuttiness. Sweet malty finish.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Tap at St. Arnold’s in a 0.5L mug, the smallest size available. Holy ___. Deep, clear brown to deep ruby pour. Medium, soapy beige head formation. Weak retention and no lace. Nose is all detergent. Taste is soapy with saltwater. High carbonation on the palate. Very mild chocolate and cherry character, but overall there is no maltiness that say "dunkel". Really has nothing to do with the style.
