Draught, Hofbrau Miami. Light-filled bright golden. Thick off-white head. Fresh grain, grassy hop aroma. Quaffable but spiky mouthfeel. Decent, straightforward. Balanced with good hop character. When it’s fresh and bright and at it’s best it’s a 3.8 but it’s not always so.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Clear yellow with a thin head. Aroma is bready with a twist of lemon. Flavor is a nice balance of sweet malts with just a hint of butter and honey. Crisp and toasty but just a bit on the sweet side.

Bottle, 500ml. A golden colour with a small head. A malty, sweet aroma. Taste is slightly hoppy, with a little honey and citrus. A touch of malt underlying it all. A fairly average helles.

This is as much about the experience as the beer. I had this at the Hofbrauhaus in Munich, where the waiters carry around as many as a dozen liter steins of this stuff. That’s like 25 pounds of beer, and the glassware aint light either. A solid German helles.

4.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
This is a wonderful beer. It’s bright, somewhat pale, gold with a huge, creamy white head that shrinks slowly to leave a permanent small head & beautiful, even rings of lace down the glass. The aroma has honey, a lot of lightly toasted grain, hints of lemon, pine, sulphur, and even a little toffee.
In taste, it’s mostly rather creamy malt with bread, lemon, pine, and very zesty. It’s mostly lightly sweet with a light, aromatic bitterness near the finish. It’s smooth & full-bodied, yet still crisp and refreshing. It’s wonderful with food and is incredibly drinkable.
