From the bottle this poured a golden-orange color with a fizzy white head. It’s got a light malt aroma, maybe a bit grassy. Good malt and hop balance in the taste. Crisp, clean finish.

Pretty good, but a bit more bitter than I thought. I suppose that the bartender told me that it was a lager...seemed more of an amber to me. Kind of winey... Quite drinkable, though.

Amber colored liquid that sits in my glass foaming. Bright carbonation that passes over my tongue sprightly. Clean soporifics that sneak past my tonsils, lingering. Slowly, subtly, you impress me with your flavor and depth.

Light orange gold color. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is bready, and slightly sweet. A medium bodied helles. Malts are bready, fruity and sweet. No bitterness. Touch of grain and bread. Nice balance. Would be a good session beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Had 3 liters every night of this stuff when I was in munich. Excellent drinking beer. Great aroma and flavor. Relatively light but still a great beer. Very smooth finish.

Another one of Bavarian’s excellent beers! Nice golden color, flowery aroma and it goes down like water!

Hofbrauhaus Las Vegas: Light golden with a decent white head. Light body; watery at times; light carbonation. Subtle but sweet malt base with grainy notes throughout. Aromas of flowers, tin and herbs. Some bitterness rounds out the finish. Mostly drinkable.

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2006 On tap at IL Casale in Schwaig, Germany. Outstanding lager! Rich maize color- deep gold. Has a flowery aroma. Fresh tasting with a nice mild bitter flavor. Low in carbonation. So very easy to drink. Big points for ambiance.

Ernest (6345) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2004
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (bread), moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly grainy. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Another husky sample of HB beer. Not oxidized or skunky, just an aftertaste of grain husks that won’t go away. Sigh.

Golden color and light in feel. Could drink this for awhile if it weren’t for the slightly sweet aftertaste. Nice beer.
