Game Day Beer Review: Staatliches Hofbraühaus Hofbraü Original Munich Helles Lager
The Location: Lockhart Stadium Parking Lot, Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
The Date: Saturday, November 2nd, the final game of the NASL Fall season.
The Time: 6:45pm, prior to a 7:30pm Ft. Lauderdale Strikers' kickoff
The Weather: 78 degrees, heavy cumulus clouds lingering overhead and partially blocking the sunset. Moderate breeze blowing through the parking lot.
The Scene: Children throwing and kicking balls, cars looking for open spots, adults gathered around a charcoal grill, and the smell of grilled meat and smoke mingling delightfully in the nearby air.
The Music: Small Town USA, Justin Moore
The Beer: Hofbraü Original, Hofbrahaus Munich
The Taste: In a word, refreshing. Aromatic hops and malt in almost the perfect balance. Caramel, bread and biscuit were all present and accounted for. This is how a good German lager should taste.
The Feel: Perfection.
