A-Pours a hazy honey color. Big, frothy head leaves only light lacing. Head hangs around forever.

S-Wheat and yeast at moderate intensities. Residual sweetness, banana and cloves.

T-More of the same. Rather sweet. Buzzing yeast. Bananas and cloves are mild. Tangy wheat. Crisp.

M-Fuller than some but still mostly light. Prickly carbonation. A bit chewy.

O/D-Didn't love it and didn't hate it. Pretty unmemorable.

well now, everything i have brought home from HOLLINGSHEAD DELI has been expired. i was pretty buzzed leaving the place (they have a great assortment of taps and bottles, but the bottles are all old) and obviously didnt check what i was bringing home with me. it's still a great place, but i guess i'm reviewing something that was a "drink before" of 11/ 2012....
pale, pumpkin, toffee color pour with a weak head on top.
smells like a roasted toffee malt and brings the flavor with it. very nice taste; like a dark hofbrau (which i just had at THE RATHSKELLER) but not quite the same. very nice sweet and malt-y, tastes commercial but still unique.
for being old, it tastes great, it's another great german brew and i love the stuff from germany. i normally cringe at anything below 5% but i forgive this because it's german. i'm partial; i cant help it. i think the age of the beer really comes through in the 'mouthfeel'- it's kind of thin and bland and i lowered the rating here for this. but it's still a great brew....

Had on tap at phoenix landing.

A cloudy yellow. Huge yeasty flavors. Very bready and sweet. Lots of phenols and funyness. Very sessionable. Nice creamy mouthfeel with high carbonation. One of the most authentic and flavorable hefs I've had. They do it right in germany.
