Oregon Pub Crawl 2016 — photo 22 of 96: A stein of Hofbräu Original brewed by Hofbräu München in Munich, Germany. According to the menu at the Stein Haus in Portland, Oregon, it is a “pale, straw-colored, medium-bodied lager. Light on malt, with a biscuit-like aftertaste. Well-balanced, crisp and clean.” According to the brewer:
“More than any other, Hofbräu Original embodies Munich’s character as a city of beer, spreading its fame throughout the world. Full-bodied with an ABV of 5.1%, and offering a truly fine hops aroma, it is a superbly well-balanced lager.”I especially wanted to enjoy a German beer on the 500th anniversary of the Reinheitsgebot, known in English as the German Beer Purity Law.
