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.

unclemike (2832) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - MAY 6, 2016
Straw colour low head and condition, with some cloudy swirls of god knows what floating around and shimmering like the aurora borealis. Malty sweet aromas, low levels of hop flavour with more sweet grainy malt and a noticable hop bitterness in the finish

eunck (107) - Hamburg, Hamburg, GERMANY - APR 19, 2016
Clear golden beer with a fine white head. Style typical aroma of grainy malts with the hops mostly just providing some bitterness. Moderately sweet, but the aftertaste is pretty sweet. Carbonation is not too low, but the beer still goes down easily.

Malty aroma
Hop and malt in flavour
A bit sweet finish maybe due to rich malt
Good bitterness

It’s the German pils. I like this thick malt taste.

1l glas van ’t vat. Helderblond bier met rijke witte schuimkraag. Geur: wat moutzoetigheid, granen en licht hoppig. Smaak: bitterheid en wat moutzoetigheid mooi in balans. Goede koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: licht bitterig. Helles? Voor mij gewoonweg een goeie pils!

W sumie spodziewałem się więcej. W tym przedziale cenowym znalazłbym piwa o dwie kategorie lepsze.
