I enjoyed a liter of this beer on draft at the Hofbrauhaus in Munich. The aroma was a medley of grainy, corny hops and some light maltyness. It had a clear, lighter gold color with a very large, foamy white head with long retention. The flavor was mostly bitter, with a very mild sweetness. Ample carbonation and an average thickness to this beer, mostly dry. Not a truly great beer, but perfect for serving by the liter.

Clear golden with an average head. Malty aroma. Crisp and balanced restrained flavour, gaining in bitterness towards the finish. Bready quality present. Just a little dull for my taste.

Poured to a gorgeous golden yellow beer, with a thick white head that emitted aromas of wheat and yeast. Initial flavour of fruits and alcohol, with a sweet finish honey. Easy to drink, but a little too sweet for me.

The beer pours smooth and easy with little head and a good strong golden color. A common light German skunk aroma with that metallic sweetness like a mild orange peel. Almost a Pilsner with a sharp fizz, good small bubbliness. Light mid bitter dry flavor that sticks around for a bit until you breathe and it turns to a mild sweet. Leaves the mouth lightly coated. Laces when tipped but doesn’t stick around.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2008 Pours a golden yellow with a white foamy head. Very little hops, and the maltiness has a slight corn flavor. I’ll be at the Hofbrauhaus in Las Vegas later this month, and I can’t wait to try it on tap.

On tap at the Hofbrauhaus. Coming from America this was the best beer I had ever tasted. I have had better beers since but this is about as amazing as a beer can get.

Tap at Hofbrauhaus. Clear golden with thick white head. Typical lager aroma and flavor, very true to style. Very refreshing, slightly sweet maltiness, no skunkiness, and you can actually taste the hops. Not exciting, but very drinkable.

Tastes like a better version of Heineken. Also, tastes significantly better out of a glass as opposed to drinking from the bottle.
