4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2007 My favorite beer in the world! It was my first trip to HB Munich while stationed in Bavaria. My buddy knew German and ordered for me, knowing my taste in beer. He was spot on! The beer was served in a Litre stein, and was the same color as Dr. Pepper. The head was a light chocolate brown which matched its aroma. The flavor was perfectly balanced with a smokiness I haven’t tasted since.

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2013 Best when poured at the Hofbrauhaus in Munchen. I am particularly fond of this style, which is why I rate it so highly. Nice caramel notes, wonderful appearance and very drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Drink by 9-17-14. 500ml bottle. Dad picked this up in Italy.
Appearance: Diarrhea water never looked so good. Extremely hazy orange/brown color depending on where the light comes through. Small very light tan colored head goes away pretty quickly leaving about 1/16th of an inch of a thin head on top. No lacing that I can see.
Smell: The malts bog down that normally bright dunkelweizen aroma. Caramel malt with a little bit of that banana character typical in the style. Not a strong aroma, but quite nice regardless.
Taste/feel: That’s the ticket! This is really nice. The banana character is there plenty, but the caramel malts keep it under control. The after taste is a biscuity flavor with the banana and it’s really nice. There’s also a very slight tanginess on the end that calls for you to take another sip. The mouthfeel is outstanding with about a medium body with a mid-level amount of carbonation.
I was thinking about going with 3.75s for the taste, feel, and overall rating, but this is an excellent beer for *me* if I want something of the style. Silky feel on it, pleasant lingering slightly spicy and tangy banana biscuit aftertaste... this is some good stuff. My first from Hofbrau, and it won’t be my last.
