UPDATED: JUL 29, 2016 First tried this beer on tap at Zhender’s in Frankenmuth, MI. It’s my favorite beer of all time! I can drink this anytime of day, very drinkable and enjoyable to me like no other beer I’ve ever had. Hofbrau is "King" in my book!

This is a wonderful beer. It’s bright, somewhat pale, gold with a huge, creamy white head that shrinks slowly to leave a permanent small head & beautiful, even rings of lace down the glass. The aroma has honey, a lot of lightly toasted grain, hints of lemon, pine, sulphur, and even a little toffee. In taste, it’s mostly rather creamy malt with bread, lemon, pine, and very zesty. It’s mostly lightly sweet with a light, aromatic bitterness near the finish. It’s smooth & full-bodied, yet still crisp and refreshing. It’s wonderful with food and is incredibly drinkable.

Love this beer. It has spurned me to try other Munich Helles Style beers along with home brewing.

Wow what a nice beer. The beer poured a medium golden color with a nice flufffy head. Very light and refreshing at the same time. Very enjoyable

The perfect brew from Munchen. Have not had a bad one yet. Always a good pick. Aroma similar to Corona w/lime. Taste mild bitterness. Somewhat dry mouthfeel. Goes down easy with any food. Quality from the German purity law. Good for the style.

This beer is so good it’s great. Probably the first beer I ever had, when I was like 18, in Munich at the Hofbreaehaus. Yum. Delicious.

UPDATED: MAY 31, 2016 Nagyon jó, át kell értékelnem a Helles-ről tanultakat, ezt nem hiszem el, ha tudnak ilyen jó Helles-eket csinálni, akkor nekem miért kell a lónyál söröket iszogatnom itthon. UPDATE: Hofbrauhaus, Starkbierzeit 2016. Az origó, a nulla pont, a zabriskie pont. Minden sör viszonyítási alapja. "A" sör. Színében, állagában, ízében.
