Draft at Hofbrau haus. Not as off-putting as the light. Not much on the nose or tongue. Crisp and clean and perfectly inoffensive.

Dark yellow with a white cover. Aroma is sweet malts, some light hay, grass. Taste is on the sweet side again, bready, would like a touch more hops for balance, but it is good enough to drink by the liter.

LetsGoState (789) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 14, 2011
Appearance is golden with a medium white head. Aroma is a bland lager. Taste is typical lager malts with minimal character. Overall it isn’t bad and is very drinkable, which is almost perfect for the atmosphere.

Sample at Hofbrauhaus Pittsburgh. Clear yellow pour with a thick white head. Malty aroma with a touch of noble hops. Grainy malt flavor with some noble hop before a thin finish.

On tap at the Brewpub Christmas Eve. Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head. A smooth grainy honey nose. The flavor is nice; a Euro lager, grainy, some sweetness akin to honey, fairly clean. Enjoyable.

On tap at Hofbräuhaus Pittsburgh on our way to RBSG. Pours a clear light yellow, watery looking, with a medium sized white head. Skunky sulfurous grain. Medium bodied, grainy. Lightly dry bitter finish. The best thing about this is that apart from the nose, it was not offensive. Bleh.

Here we go with the post-1000 era. First beer at Hofbrauhaus in Pittsburgh last weekend, make it a liter. Pretty good lager... well balanced and smooth. Enjoyed it.

Draught at the BrewPub: Aroma of lager yeast, hops, light grass, and slight pale malts. Poured yellow in color with a small, white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Clear. Sparkling. Flavor is light to medium bitter. Tastes of hops, grass, light earth, pale malts, and lager yeast. Light to medium body. Thin, lightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Vegetal, pale malt finish is lightly dry.

This poured a golden yellow color with a large white head. Aroma was very grassy and malty sweetness as well. Flavor was grassy and sweet and skunky malts. Not good by anymeans, but great for the style.
