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.

Bottle Rural harvest aroma - grain and straw. Sweetish, malty, rural taste, light hoppy, light bitter finish. Peripheral spicy notes. Within this style, it is a very good beer.

Bottle 0,5 l, Lidl, Zielona Góra, Poland. Złote piwo o grubej i puszystej pianie oraz świeżym, słodowym zapachu. W smaku pełne, gazowane, lekko słodowe ze słabą goryczką na finiszu.

digopossobon (291) - MACAE, BRAZIL - SEP 20, 2014
Creme claro bem formado, média densidade. Liquido claro, dourado e translúcido. Aroma herbáceo intenso. Belíssima presença de lúpulo! O mesmo se diz do sabor. Lúpulo bem marcado. Ótimo amargor. Bem persistente no retrogosto. Dá para perceber também a cevada no fundo. Uma cerveja simples e direta no que oferece.

Appearance: Pours a clear golden colour with just over a finger of white head. Aromas: Malt, straw, bread. Favours: Malt, flower Mouthfeel: Thin with lots of carbonation. Overall: This beer was alright but I’ve had many in this style that were far better.

50cl bottle. Clear golden colour with a thin white head. Straw, light caramel and hoppy aroma. Average carbonation and light body. Taste is medium to light bitter and light sweet with a dry finish. Overall, a regular but refreshing beer.

ninecats (164) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - SEP 8, 2014
Pours clear pale yellow with a big white head that dissipates slowly, leaving loads of lacings. Aroma is discreet corn, pale malt, grain, slight herby. Taste is mild, malty with bready feel, slight honey, finishes grainy with a slight hoppy feel. Light body, medium carbo, dry smooth texture. Like most München helles, this has a great drinkability with simplistic yet balanced flavours.

Enjoyed by the stein in the Hofbrauhaus. Pleasant mild hop with a small amount of corn in the nose. Clean. Balanced.
