Bottle served at the Spatenhof, already poured into a 500 ml mug by the staff. On to the beer:
The beer arrived with two fingers of head, a light chestnut color with amber hues, and leaving a few strings of lace around the mug. The aroma is pleasant, not too sweet. Mild toast and raisins comes to mind....hmmm, raisin toast? Having previously tasted a Lowenbrau Original in the state years ago, I had a dampened impression of the brand, only to be pleasantly surprised how this tasted. It has a deep taste; toasted with some raisin, light grassiness, chocolate covered raisins, yet never goes too sweet. It also feel nearly full bodied and very smooth.
A very good surprise indeed. I wouldn't mind to see this variety imported into the states.

3.53/5 rDev -1.9%
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a 12 oz. mug.
This beer pours a gorgeous dark amber to brown, but crystal clear with an off-white head that lingers a while. Not a strong aroma, but what is there is dominated by sweet, grainy malts. The flavor is dominated by roasted malty sweetness with a nice light hop finish, just enough to balance the malts. The body is medium with enough carbonation to keep it from being too heavy. Crisp and refreshing.
