On-tap at Maryvale Ballpark in Phoenix, AZ during a Diamondbacks-Brewers game. Poured into a souvenir Brewers pokal glass. On to the beer:

On-top is a creamy head, and below is a bright yellow beer which makes the beer style proud. Lots of carbonation bubbles run through the beer. Hoppin Helles is right in name, as the aroma is well hopped. However, the hops aren't as fragrant as other hoppy beers. In this case, the nose is a singular spicy note with a kiss of diacetyl.

Taste....well, you tell that there was an effort to make this beer hoppy. Like the aroma however, the hops don't provide the same stimulation to the senses as other breweries manage to pull off. Vague hoppy flavor throughout the taste, leafy, some graininess from the malt, a steeley and slick bitterness which at least distinguish it from a normal blah lager. It's a light/medium bodied beer, with a somewhat creamy and cool feeling.

Decent beer on its own with a few rough patches. With its level of hops, it could be confused as a pilsner. Nonetheless, Hofbrau and the rest of Munich have little to fear here.

Serving type: on-tap
