golden-orange cloudy beer with a medium frothy head. taste of yeast, grain and floral hops. light sweedness and medium bitterness which makes it good to drink on a warm day in a beergarden ;) i liked it much more than the hofbräu original.

Draught at the Hofbrauhaus, cloudy orange gold with white head, slight bready notes and hint of cloves on nose, crisp body with toast, bitter orange, and more spice, then a long dry-bitter finish. Refreshing.

My Bottom Line :
Light toast and orange-y hints notice herbal hops building bitterness in this drinkable but confusing lager.
Further Personal Perceptions :
-A healthy head of foam covers the dull amber haze.
-This simply lacks flavor clarity and development.
-The full, soft mouthfeel is enjoyable but doesn’t carry any polished flavors.
-The flavor profile is more talkative than the aroma, but it is not better rendered.
On tap at the tourist magnet.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle. 2011 edition.
It does pour a beuaty of a color. It is a light peachy golden orange with a fluffy and billowing white head that sticks nicely and leaves some good lacing.
The smell is a bit subdued, there is some yeastiness, sweet malt, and a hint of fruitiness.
The taste is subtle and light, but good. It has a bready flavor to it with some slight buttery notes and a nice bitter finish.
It is a good summer beer.

A: The beer pours a pale golden straw color with a nice big white head.
S: A nice hoppiness is immediately noticeable on the nose. Lots of floral notes with mild citrus peel and a hint of grass. There is plenty of yeast along with a bread and cracker malt base.
T: There is a nice, mild sweetness to the beer with the bread and cracker notes that were present on the nose. A bit more sweetness from a mild honey flavor. Still lots of grassy, citrus peel, and floral hops.
M: The body is pretty light with a medium carbonation.
O: A beer that is excellent for a warm day. Very refreshing and easy to drink.

Hopfig, süffig. Am Anfang noch ein wenig bitter, zum Nachgeschmack hin milder werdend. Am Ende des Nachgeschmackes ist wieder ein minimal bitterer Geschmack zu vernehmen. Das Bier ist genau so, wies auch auf der Flasche vermerkt ist: das ideale Bier für heiße Sommertage!
