Non Beer Trip Beer Trip Beer #34. Keg at the brewpub, 3/19/16. Clear pale golden, large foamy off-white head, good retention. Aroma of doughy malt and noble hops. The taste is doughy malts, mild toastiness, grassy and floral hops. Medium bodied, mild lingering bitterness, well balanced.

This is the flagship beer for Kentucky's Hofbrauhaus. As such it is geared toward the crowds who file in to the biergarten after watching a movie or going to Gameworks. This beer is not going to take any chances. Golden color and effervescent with a medium white head. Light hops and malt aroma. Fizzy and light-bodied, with not much in the way of flavor. It is easy to drink and would do on a hot day in the garten.

Shared some of a friend’s half liter at Hofbrauhaus Newport. Pours a clear gold with a small white head. Aroma of malt, yeast, grain, corn, and light hops. Flavor follows suit. Light bodied, well-balanced, completely unassuming and unpretentious. Crisp, refreshing, and a light malty aftertaste. A nice example of the style if you’re looking for a base to draw from.

On tap at the brewpub in Newport.... Asked for a liter, expected that classic glass mug, got a plastic cup! It’s a bigger plastic cup, but no way it was the same size as the liter, and of course, it was freakin’ plastic. They said something about not doing glasses anymore on the weekends for the outside area, what the hell? As much as I wanted to rag on this beer, I have to admit it’s decent stuff, albeit way overpriced, at $8.75. Probably a clearish amber gold color, good creamy white head leaving good sheety lace. Very nice lighter and smooth and crisp carbonation, dry finishg, good light hops through the finish. Straw, white bread aroma. Like a typical higher-quality premium lager.

Draught at the brewery. Medium light yellow in color. Lemon, banana and corn esters in the nose. A bit tingling on the tongue, nice and crisp. Lightly syrupy as well. Very strong sweet corn flavor. Overall it’s a little above average for lagers, certainly drinkable, and an OK attempt by the brewery at a German helles, but it doesn’t knock my socks off.

Draft to mug at Hofbrauhaus. Looks decent; a transparent gold with white head. Smells and tastes lightly bitter and pleasantly skunky with an average mouthfeel. A decent lager.

Unfortunately I didn’t take down good tasting notes beyond the numbers for this one!
