On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear yellow with a thick head. Aroma of sweet malt, lemon, strawberry, light fruits. Flavor of sweet malt and light fruits. Not too sweet though- it’s more fruity than sweet. A lot better than I expected as it has more body and flavor than your typical "premium lager." 7/4/7/4/14 (3.6/5)

biznizness (1104) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 7, 2010
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.

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 22, 2009
Enjoyed via draft. Pours a deep golden. Nose of malt with perhaps a slight hint of German noble hops. Medium bodied- appropriate for the style. Notes of malt tend to dominate the palate.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2011
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.

zach8270 (3582) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JAN 2, 2012
(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.

Nate (3778) - 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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5077) - 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.
