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.

At the new Las Vegas outlet, this is brewed in Munich, not Kentucky, but it's the same beer ... the classic Bavarian lager, firmly golden, well bittered and smooth starchy (but good) finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is an acceptable, but not outstanding, brew... the Kentucky version of of a Munich Helles. As such, it's been "lightened up" a lot, but it still has some flavor.

Lighty hop, yellow, but noticably darker than their lite beer. Balanced aroma of yeast and malt, and maybe some "flowery frangrants". It is still a pretty light lager, and one I think I could drink all night. Session beer comes to mind.

Pours bright golden with a fully receding off-white head. Aroma is very clean, with light lager breadiness. Taste is clean, lightly bready, with notes of cookie and toasted malt. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with lively carbonation. Wasn’t expecting to be blown away by multiple facets of flavor. Nicely paired with the notoriously heavy German fare.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet malty aroma, grainy, fruity hops, very clean. Clear pale yellow, thin white head. Solid noble hop flavor and bitterness, grainy malt flavor is present. Medium body, fizzy carbonation. Very good pale lager, clean and fresh tasting.

Very happy to have the Hofbrauhaus right across the river. This reminds me of a long afternoon spent at the original Hofbrauhaus in Munich many years ago. Ironically I find it not to be as good as another Cincinnati dortmunder. But it is the Hofbrauhaus Original.

Tap at Newport. Amber color with medium white head. Good aroma of malt and hops. Flavor was full with hops and sparkle taste. Good finish.
