Golden yellow with nice thick head that resides at the top of the glass and slowly goes down to a thin layer after a minute fueled by the steady flow of carbonation.
Smell carries a sweet toasty malt with grassy piney undertones.
Tastes very nice, well rounded. Want to take another sip as soon as i put the glass down.
Light smooth body helps this one go down very easy.
Overall very impressed. Nice well balanced brew. I really enjoy Hofbrau Original, it is a regular and welcom visitor to my fridge and my palate. This beer truly does hold alot of character and my wife will even drink it.

i first had this brew about a year ago on my birthday. i instantly found a favorite. it has to be my favorite german imported lager.
the beer pours very nicely. a two finger head that stays around longer than i thought it would. gives way to minimal to no lacing. the appearance is not quite straw yellow but not quite gold either.
it smells like a fresh beautiful spring day. crisp, clear and refreshing. a little hint of skunk was found but most german lagers are a little skunky. maybe the green bottles?
it tastes great. at first a crisp grassy taste followed by a hoppy taste with a touch of honey. the after taste is hoppy with a touch of skunk. pardon my language but even the burps taste good. very crisp, very clean and nicely carbonated
mouthfeel is a little watery but at 5.1 abv its not an IPA. so i did not expect a thick feel. however this brew is all about the taste.
at $8.99 a six pack 11.2 oz bottles. there are craft beers at this price point with higher abv. but like i said this is about having an authentic munich specialty lager. worth every penny, if you ask me.
