3.4/5 rDev -1.2%
Draft offering at the Pittsburgh location. The brew appears a clear light yellow color with a white cap that holds fairly decent for the style.
The aroma has suggestions of sweetness that seem like an awkward amount of corn that blends to a neutral grainy quality before buttery diacetyl comes into play. A faint amount of herbal to noble hops are present providing a lightly grassy addition.
The taste is sweet and corn-like with a minor buttery diacetyl note and a sweet grain feel persists into the aftertaste. It has a lingering mild sulfur note into the aftertaste.
This is a light bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. It is not the worst in the style but not the best either. An OK offering that I would probably pass on having again.

LOOK: Pours a perfectly clear gold into a liter mug. White lace is left sticking to the sides if the class. Active carbonation rises busily to the surface.
SMELL: Crisp, crackery malt profile and quite bready.
TASTE: Bready malt and just enough herbal, minty hop character. Bready, fresh tasting malts. Creamy malt character and a light soothing hoppiness. This is a Premium Lager.
FEEL: Lighter bodied, smooth and quite refreshing.
OVERALL: A nice lighter lager from Hofbrauhaus Pittsburgh, but still with ample flavor.

Pours a clean yellow with orange-ish hints in the color with a white head. In the aroma, a faint light malt, but nothing really going on. In the taste, well, kind of the standard sweet to dry standard Euro lager, however just fresh. A small bite and medium to light bodied mouthfeel, with a semi dry lager like aftertaste. Better flavor than their light, but when in Rome.

Had some of this from my friend who just wanted something dull like a lager. Got at least 4oz to sample so it was worth the review
A - Looks pretty standard lager color. Mild orange mostly yellow with a inch of white head that sticks around.
S - Grains, noble hops, more grain, and bread
T - At first it tasted pretty awesome but after a few sips it really gets boring. Makes me wonder why someone would even order this or the light, pretty much like BMC but with more sweetness underneath the grain.
M - Light to medium. Chug able
D - Well my friend drank it pretty quick so who am I to judge? Better than MGD or any other lager you would find so drink it up!

A-Slightly hazed golden yellow with a thick bright white head that reduces to a dense cap and leaves hefty lace.
S-Light biscuit malts and touch of spicy noble hops. Fairly mundane and dull.
T-A well balanced lager--read boring. Slightly grassy/spicy hops sprinkled on top of a base of slightly sweet biscuit malt.
M-Medium-light--clean and crisp. A typical German helles.
D-About as ho-hum as a German Helles can get. Nothing wrong with it but nothing exciting either. Easy to drink but to me dull. Give me something with MORE flavour please.

A translucent, dirty golden colored body. Huge white head that is a bit soapy and has pretty good retention, leaves some lacing.
Aroma is a blend of light lager malt and noble hops. Lightly sweet, and grassy and spicy.
Once again, a pretty well balanced lager. The hops come first, with a great grassy, slightly spicy flavor. The hops give way to slightly crackery lager malts.
Mouthfeel is light and lively.
Considering I always drink this beer by the liter, I have to give it a pretty good drinkability rating.
