3.9/5  rDev +2.6%

The archetypal helles lager.
Crackery, sweet aroma and a smooth crackery, pale malt flavor with just enough noble hops in the back. Not too thin and crackery as some can be, not as full and slick as others. A nice balance, though slightly grainy which creates a bit of a harshness.

03/18/14 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Full bodied & less bitter than the famous weiss these guys do. Very good & goes down too easy. Thank goodness it's a mere 5.1 ABV.

I like to have a nice strong IPA or other Pale Ale, or two, then have a Hofbrau Original. The smoothness of this lager is a great palate cleanser after the hoppy beers. If I just have one of these right away I would give it a 3 but for some reason after a couple of pale ales it seems almost creamy.
