2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Drinking this from my Arrogant Bastard glass that says, "fizzy yellow beer is for wussies." How ironic. Hofbräu München Original is a fizzy yellow beer. Here’s the verdict: it doesn’t pack a punch. Nothing stands out. Nothing about it makes me want to drink more. Smells like hay/bread. Small white head that turns into a fine ring around the glass. Doesn’t taste like much. Reminds me of Miller Lite but a bit thicker. "A Munich beer with character." I beg to differ. It’s a Munich beer, but it lacks character. I’ll probably finish the glass, but I won’t enjoy it very much.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear golden beer that pours with a weak white head. Light aroma of hay and slight skunky hops. The beauty in this beer is it’s like the girl your grew up with, easy to get along with, and moments of arousal and stimulation, the reality is that 90% of the time she’s a commodity. Plain Jane malts yet she leaves me wanting more. C’mon babe, what therefore? It finishes clean, but then again she’s the girl next door....Of course she finishes cleanly.

Draft at old German beer haus milwaukee. From notes. Cereal grains dominate with a hint of floral hops. Just ok.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Smak och doft av humle, malt, jäst, örter, gräs, hö med toner av honung och jord. Lagom sötma, lätt kropp med bra beska. Men inget jag gillar.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
It has a bright yellow body with very good clarity and some visible carbonation. The head is tall and full of soft white bubbles. Its retention is good as it slowly fades to a thin covering, that with a little swirl of the glass, lasts all the way to the last sip. On the glass it leaves behind some nice spotty lacing. There are note of light pale malt notes with a solid floral/spicy/grassy hop presence. Its flavor has a delicate sweet bready or sugar cookie like maltiness up front with a lemon meringue pie like undertone. Nice spicy/floral hop notes soon move in and add their bitterness and character. The hop character is in my opinion is in perfect balance to the malt. The finish has a good snappy, crisp and dry character that makes it extremely drinkable.

Pours a clear golden color with white head. Mainly cereal grain on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a little bit of floral hop notes. Not bad.
