white fine-poured foam sparkles? gimme a freakin’ break bro. White fine-poured foam sparkles quietly before you and forms a solid uniform layer on top of the light golden brew. You can smell the malt, hops and yeast which are subtly coordinated- and after repeated sniffing you will also discover the flowery fragrance. The impression is easy to retain, and that makes it the Original, Full-bodied, yet not too robust. Always well escorted by a truly fine hops aroma, in no way bitter, but also not just malty.

Identical to the one in Pittsburgh. On tap at the brewpub. Pours clear golden with medium white head. Aroma is crisp hops, light body, medium carbonation, and thick big bubble lacing. Taste is light malt and crisp hops. Not that much flavor.

on tap @ Hofbrauhaus Newport --- Clear straw color with a thin rim head, and a mottled sheet of lace. Taste is light malt that grows a little as it passes through; adds light floral hops in the finish. A simple brew, but somehow, satisfying.

Draft to mug at Hofbrauhaus. Looks decent; a transparent gold with white head. Smells and tastes lightly bitter and pleasantly skunky with an average mouthfeel. A decent lager.
