This clear yellow beer poured with a huge white head that subsided in a couple minutes. There is not much flavor - just a little malt with a slight hop bitterness. However, it is a refreshing drink on a hot summer day.

Watch out Hofbräu München Original has a huge head so make sure you have that Lager glass handy. If you pour this beer and there is no head than there is something wrong with either the brew or yourself. Not much happening on the aroma front, hope mainly. Hops are dominant in the flavor and the malt is present as well. I had this beer done in four gulps. After my initial two sips of course.

The original. Had on tap in Munich, much much much better than bottled. You have to try it in person.

Golden bodied, with a short, quickly dissipating white head. A clean tasting lager, for sure, no less, but not too much more.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 17, 2008
Pours a clear, straw yellow coloured body. Small thin white head, rather grainy with a dominant somewhat sweet malted flavor. A soft touch of hops rounds off this german brew.

MrTBone (11) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 16, 2008
Enjoyed from the 16.9 brown bottle. A well-balanced German lager. Nice malty middle and very smooth palate & finish. Great color- deep golden. An excellent beer.

kimcgolf (872) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - JUN 15, 2008
Poured to a bright yellow with some carbonation and a thin white head that reduced quickly and left okay lacing. Not much in the nose except a little grain and some floral scents. Mouthfeel was medium boided with little bite, and the flavor is more of the floral and grainy hops. This was an okay beer enjoyed cold on a hot day, but nothing special.

Illini08 (542) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUN 13, 2008
One liter pour on tap at the Hofbräuhaus in Munich on 5/31. Clear straw yellow color with a small white head. Lightly sweet and grainy aroma and taste. Nothing special going on here. Just something that tastes decent and is easy to drink quickly and drink a large amount of. Glad I had it at the HB Haus, but the beer itself is not worth the 6.60 Euros I paid.

BOTM club 6/08 This beer pours a golden yellow with no head. Aromas are slightly sweet and skunky. The flavors are sweet and slightly dry. Typical helles beer. Not that bad though. Cheers!
