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.

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.

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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4918) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 22, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2014 Sampled on draft at the brewery this beer poured a light golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma was tangy and sweetish without a whole lot going on. The flavor was tangy and sweet lager with a crisp floral hop note and a malty undertone. The finish turned a bit dry and bitter. Decent.

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.

Beerman6686 (4351) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 6, 2009
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.

UPDATED: DEC 22, 2012 Friendly smell. initial taste is somewhat haylike. Easy going and friendly. Not as much carbonation as the Munich bottled version. Easy going and grassy manners. Good mild finish.

Nate (3727) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 22, 2009
On tap at Hofbräuhaus Pittsburgh. Mild hoppy beany aroma with some light malt sweetness. Clean crisp aroma - definitely fresh. Golden amber clear with thin white lacing head. Medium bodied with medium carbonation - soft water. Clean, crisp lager that goes down easy and refreshes. Pairs will with the fair and perfect for the surroundings. Solid pale lager.

(draft @ Hofbrauhaus Pittsburgh - Pittsburgh, PA) Clear amber pour with a thick white head. Subtle malty aroma with a very light and dry hop note. Smooth and sweet flavor at the start. Lots of caramel malts mixing with a very light dryness and finishing off with a lightly bitter aftertaste. Smooth and drinkable.
