Straw gold with creamy white head and lace. Aroma of sour malt and paper and light earthy hops. Medium malt, cinnamon, and paper flavor. A bit thin and watery.

On tap at Hofbrauhaus Newport, March 2010 (as Premium Lager). Quite pale gold. Very slight haze. Clean and slightly sweet. Pleasant enough if not particularly remarkable. Did the job OK.

phaleslu (5869) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 28, 2009
Shared some of a friend’s half liter at Hofbrauhaus Newport. Pours a clear gold with a small white head. Aroma of malt, yeast, grain, corn, and light hops. Flavor follows suit. Light bodied, well-balanced, completely unassuming and unpretentious. Crisp, refreshing, and a light malty aftertaste. A nice example of the style if you’re looking for a base to draw from.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - APR 30, 2009
Pour was clear gold with a nice white head and spotty streaks of lacing. The aroma is malty, lightly yeasty and a bit of corny sweetness. The flavor is corny sweetness, lightly toasted malt and a bit of light spicy hops on the backside. Thin in body. Clean finish. Decent.

The best beer that I have had. On a hot summer night after a long day of work, this beer was simply amazing. Great flavor, just a good strong lager.

CaptBier (323) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - MAY 1, 2008
Draft at Newport. Tastes like Molson. Drink it quick before it gets warm . I liked this place, but it probably be better with a crowd and lots of HofBraufraus.

Meatwad (26) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 6, 2007
Single 1 pt, 9oz bottle: Taste: slight hops taste, but mostly a very light sweet malt taste, some yeast taste, hints of citrus, definitely light on all of these. Not much taste of anything. Watery palate makes it pretty close to bud light, but a little bit lighter and sweeter with less bitter hos taste and with less aftertaste. Nothing special. Appearance: Clear golden color, smells like apple juice, good head, but poor retention. I got through about half of it. Anything from the Hitachino Nest line is better than this adn there are better beers than those, too.
