Is a lager beer which has been brewed lighter in body and with less alcohol, which is approx. 3.6 % vol. but with a lovely hop flavor as it is typical for German beers.

Pours a clear golden with white head. Cereal grains mainly on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a little floral hop note.

Draft (HB Chicago). Grassy light barley malt aroma. Golden yellow with nice head. Green hay and barley malt flavor. Mildly bitter herbal finish. Solid - not bad at all.

Light, pale golden with lively carbonation feeding a silky head. Feint golden pilsen grain notes waft by the nose. Clean and crisp aroma and flavor. Light-bodied as expected with a crisp graininess, and hops take a backseat. Very well executed for a light lager.

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2015 I honestly cannot believe that Hofbrau would make a "light" lager. What a sell-out. They should have stayed true to the German brewing traditions and stuck with flavorful and high-quality beers. This light version of their lager was lacking in body, flavor, depth and any other measurable trait of a decent beer.

UPDATED: OCT 11, 2015 At HofBrau in Rosemont. If all light beers where like this things wouldn’t be so bad. Really just tasted like a slightly watery version of the premium lager. Less body and a little less sweet. Not much hop bitterness. Serving: Tap
