4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a dark clear liquid with a good sense of malt and grains. Not a bad finish, be careful when drinking out of the liter steins as they go down smooth and quick without the drinker realizing how much they have downed. A good beer and place to grab some unique brews.

Draft to mug at Hofbrauhaus. Looks decent; a transparent brown. Smells and tastes alright; some malt and hops. Average on the palate. Meh.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewpub. It was Andrew’s, thanks to him for letting me drink half his beer. Clear darker reddish brown color. Good off-white head that lasts, leaves dots of lace. Nice smooth lighter carbonation, dry finish. It’s a good texture and mouthfeel. Very fresh tasting. Good aroma, if a little light. Some dark fruit, toasty malts. Light bitterness. Have to admit, it’s a decent dunkel.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear dark amber with a thin tan topper. Aroma of caramel, pale malt and no real hops. Taste is ho-hum with caramel and malt. Easy drinkable and easily forgettable.

This is my go-to beer when I’m at hofbrau. It’s beautiful with a rich, dark copper color, with a nice tan head. The aromas are roasty, but sweet. It’s one I can drink all night.

This is the only beer I’ve honestly had at Newport’s Hofbrauhaus. Why look elsewhere? Perfectly acceptable brew that can be enjoyed the whole evening.
