I really dont like this one when I was in Berlin. I already drink a lot of other better beers, but I can say the nice aroma and appearance, but the flavor and palate not so good for me. Eu no gostei dessa na verdade, eu j tinha tomado outra cervejas melhores durante a minha passagem por Berlin mas pelo menoso o aroma e a cor dela so muito boas, mas o sabor e gosto que fica no so to bons assim.

Hofmark actually brews two pilsner beer, Wurzig Mild, and the one I am reviewing here, Wurzig Herb meaning "dry" or "bitter". This beer is brewed with two row summer barley from Franconia, and is hopped three times with whole flower Hallertau, Tettnag, and Saaz hop varieties. It is double decocted, krausened, and beechwood aged, a practice used by A-B in the brewing of Budweiser. This beechwood aging gives the beer a brilliant clarity. Hofmark Pils pours to a beautiful, bright, pale golden color with a thich and creamy bright white head, and a moderate amount of carbonation. The nose is wonderful, with very fresh, herbal and grassy hop aromatics, and a nice underpinning of crisp pilsner malt aroma. The body is soft and round on the tongue, with lots of good, crisp and clean pilsner malt flavors. Hofmark Pils finishes with more crisp maltiness up front, then ends with a zesty, dry, herbal hop bitterness that slightly lingers.

Golden coloured, medium fluffy head; aroma: shy hoppiness, cookies, some musty, mushroomy, cellary notes; watery to light bodied; bready taste, short, harsh bitter finish; absolutely not well rounded......

Huh? Pilsener? Golden color. Grassy with herbs like "pieterselie", sage and a hint of mint in the aroma. Just a bit of hoppy bitterness in the flavor. Sage, basil, apple, salt and a hint of licorice. Thin to medium bodied. Very nice beer, both herbal and very drinkable. Thanks Dortmunder!

Bottle - right now ( July 2005) Big frothy head with fine carbonatation showing all around, slightly golden - yellow color, malty aroma. Flavor is crisp, dry ( but not overhemlemly dry) and slightly sweet. Lingering aftertaste, very similar to Pilsner Urquell, but somewhat not so dry and bitter. On the whole i think it is more similar to Czech Pils than German, which is a plus for me. Overall a very pleasant experience. The bottle is a highlight, but pricy ( 8 pesos). A nice representation of the Pilsner style and one I will keep in mind in future visits to the paint store.
