This is my favorite "Light" beer I’ve found. Pours a light golden color w/ a soft white head. I’ve had this beer both from the bottle (Indianapolis) and from the tap (Milwaukee/Pittsburgh). Always have and always will be a fan of Hofbrau Original.

Pours a clear golden colour with a small bubbly head. Aroma includes notes of sweet malts, apple, and pear. Tasting notes include apple, pear, nice light malts, and a clean sweet finish. Most excellent!

Bottle sample at tasting, thanks Vova. Clear golden yellow with a white head. Grainy lagerish aroma, quite clean. Sweetish malty and grassy flavors. Light-medium bodied. OK

DSG (5730) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - AUG 20, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at Stas’s place. Thanks Vova. Clear golden with a big white head. Decent aroma of malt, a bit bready, a bit grainy, and some grassy hops. Flavor has mild malty sweetness and mild bitter grassy/herbal hops finish. Light to medium-bodied. Decent.

Alengrin (1025) - BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2014
Münchener helles from a classic Bavarian brewery, with thick, delicate, stable foam and clear golden blonde colour. Aroma of pale malts and flowery, soft aromatic hops, bit spicy, bit straw-like. Malty but not really sweet taste, smooth, becoming dryer towards the finish with a brief but zestful hop bitterishness in the tail.

Draught. Golden colour, large fluffy white head. Very bready and grain malt taste. Light bitterness. Refreshing.

GSAP (489) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 13, 2014
Niet een hoogvlieger, beetje onbeholpen in de mond, wat waterig met zoetje, aroma is wat muf en afwaswater, nasmaak niet zo lekker.

A great tasting real German beer, from Munich. It’s always nice to taste a beer straight from the motherland.

Bork (130) - Rockmart, Georgia, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Rather watery beer but with a bit of malt body to begin with. Finish and aftertaste leave you feeling a bit cheated on.
