Original Hofbrau Helles Lager is certainly a treat. One that should be appreciated by all. Strangely, I find their bottled version to have a bit more depth than what one gets at the Hofbrau Haus in Munich. True there in Germany and here.

Well balanced, lightly malty, immensely drinkable. Very refreshing.

Of course, even though I say it is somewhat better from the bottle....I would give anything to be sitting in Munich this moment and enjoying this bier over a few drinking songs.

Prost!

16.9 ounce bottle poured into a Wicked Weed snifter

A - crystal clear medium gold with a nice two inch head with spectacular retention and lacing

S - The nose is not particularly notable. Bit of a fresh smell.

T - This is just a great tasting lager. Very crisp and full bodied with a clean finish.

M - medium thick, great carbonation.

O - what's not to love. It is not overly complex, but it is just a great beer.
