Game Day Beer Review: Staatliches Hofbräuhaus Original Munich Helles Lager

(5.10% ABV) Hofbrau Original poured a deep straw color with a head that was as pure white as the driven snow.

The beer's smell was a mix of bread and crackers, with slight whiffs of citrus, hops and yeast thrown in for good measure. This is a seemingly simple beer, yet it has an amazingly complex smell.  It's almost as if these Germans have this brewing thing down to a science....

The beer was tingly on the tongue, and refreshingly bitter. There was a grassy hop taste that gradally faded into a off-dry finish. The beer was very German, and very good. We enjoyed it immensely: B+
