Anyone for bananas? That’s the dominant aroma and flavour in this Munchen lager. It poured a straw colour with a 1cm frothy head. The nose is very sweet, with fruity banana characters. Medium bodied and quenching with a soft bitter finish. Banana fruitiness in the middle. Unusual but not the best in the brewer’s range. (Bottle)

On tap in Bangkok, Thailand. Bright yellow color. Mild hop aroma. Lots of carbonation and a light, airy palate. Pretty good flavor, much better than I expected. Moderate hops and some malt, it is much like a Helles. Seems best on tap. The best Pale Lager I have had to date.

0,5 l bottle, it has an 5%abv, brewed by Dreher Rt. under license...Golden body with a small white head. Sourish yeast, some pale malt in the aroma, some freaky fruity character. Medium body with sourish bottom-yeast, some pale malt, minimal bitterness, and the freaky fruity taste according to the aroma. Better than other else lagers, an easy drinkable, not a very exciting one.

500 ml can. As Hofbräu Lager. 4.2%. Brewed by Dreher in Hungary. Budapest, Hungary.
Clear pale golden colour with average size fluffy white head. Mild fruity and grassy bitterness with malt and ink. Malt, grain and mild fruity grassy bitter hops in flavour. Smooth and balanced Lager. A good one.

PorterPounder (5881) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 31, 2005
12 oz bottle, Whip-In Liquors, Austin, Tx.Pours a light golden with a thin white head. Aroma has grassy notes with a bit of lake water accents. Flavor is slightly yeasty and turns somewhat metallic. Some sweet biscuity malty notes redeem it some. Mouthfeel is thin and slighltly metallic. Overall, decent, but just not my style anymore.

The color was too light for me... kinda like a witbeir. Nice light hint of spicy hops in the background, spicy lingering in the flavor, not that bad.

BREWMUSKCLES (2332) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 17, 2009
IN flavor body and palate the word is moderate. REFRESHING and satisfying on a warm day. caramel corn barnyard sweetness with a spicy almost peppery hop bitterness that is light and lengthy in finish. it has its place.
