On tap at the brewpub in Newport.... Asked for a liter, expected that classic glass mug, got a plastic cup! Itís a bigger plastic cup, but no way it was the same size as the liter, and of course, it was freakiní plastic. They said something about not doing glasses anymore on the weekends for the outside area, what the hell? As much as I wanted to rag on this beer, I have to admit itís decent stuff, albeit way overpriced, at $8.75. Probably a clearish amber gold color, good creamy white head leaving good sheety lace. Very nice lighter and smooth and crisp carbonation, dry finishg, good light hops through the finish. Straw, white bread aroma. Like a typical higher-quality premium lager.

On tap: itís a solid lager that although it doesnít disappoint, it doesnít excite me either. Itís earthy in flavor, but lacks most everywhere else. Refreshing.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear light orange with a thick white head. Aroma of bready malt and light fruits. Flavor of sweet bready malts. A little dull although certainly drinkable. 6/4/6/4/14 (3.4/5)

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 (6837) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 28, 2009
Shared some of a friendís 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 youíre 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.
