I enjoyed this beer. Aside from the slightly sour aroma it’s a very refreshing brew. Flavor is well balanced and slightly favors sweetness. It won’t wow you with its complexity, but this beer is a solid choice, especially during these summer months.

500ml bottle. White low (half finger) foam which reduces quickly but keeps a bit more than a ring from that point on.Golden straw colour . Malty bread aroma and a bit grassy. Flavour the same. Minimal bitterness, slightly sweet and a little cloying on the palate.

500ml bottle BB 3/5/17 Light straw color with good head. Slight grainy aroma. Medium bitterness with slight malt body and crisp finish. I was quite impressed with this one - a novelty to taste a decent German beer that wasn’t oxidized from the trip down-under and plenty of life left in it re BB. Could quite easily sit on this one at Oktoberfest.

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!
