2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at Hofbräuhaus Pittsburgh on our way to RBSG. Pours a clear yellow, with a medium sized white head. Rivals the Premium Lager for “who can look more like water with a head”. Skunky and grainy on the nose, skunky and grainy in the mouth. Not good. Nasty bitterness on the finish.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a very clear golden color with a medium white head. A light grainy nose. A smooth flavor; somewhat watery, but fits in a nice grainy and sweet flavor. Very clean. Good. Very much like the Premium lager.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2014 Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a vibrant golden color with a large creamy white head that lingered and left incredible lacing. The aroma was sweetish and tangy with a bit of sour mash and faint perfumey hops. The flavor was nutty and bready with a crisp perfumey hop note. Medium length finish of nut, bread and perfume. Medium body. Ok.

This poured a plae yellow color with a big white head. Aroma was almost nonexistant but a little grassy. Flavor was mainly grassy with some surprising adjunct tastes as well. Not good.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Some sulfur on the aroma, otherwise smells a little like wet fresh cut grass. Has a mild hay flavor and I would say more hay or grass than the regular hofbrau lager. Good carbonation and easy to drink. Has better carbonation than the other beers on tap here. Not a bad session brew. Nice for a lager lover. Low alky makes many of these possible. Overall, like-able and friendly.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at hofbrau haus. Pours clear with a touch of yellow. Not much good on the nose. It’s a tad off-putting in it’s unidentifiableness. Not much on the tongue. Fizzy. Finishes clean. Pass!
