Hofbräu Glass (300ml Glass)
One of the worlds best examples of this beer style. It is a light, crisp beer containing barley and wheat, spiced with coriander and orange peel. Added oats, along with secondary bottle fermentation, results in a cloudy ale with a thick, white creamy head. An excellent summer beer.
These two styles are closely related, the former hailing from Dortmund and the latter from Bavaria. Both are slightly strong (5.0-5.6%), malt-accented pale lagers. The cookie-like or bready maltiness should be very much in evidence in a traditional example. These beers are clean and easy to drink in quantity. Some Dortmunders made in Denmark and the Netherlands are stronger.
