Aroma was subtle but featured pils malt with some noble hops in the very back. poured very light gold color with 2 fingers of head that stayed on the top as a film covery 75% of the glass. Flavor was quite pleasant, malty, dry, and a dash of noble hops. light in the mouth and very easy drinking. A nice beer for the style, but nothing to brag about.

To clear up any confusion, I am rating the Augustiner Munchner Edelstoff, which has a completely different label than the bottle pictured above. But it was the closest I could find. Perhaps the German and American bottles are labelled differently? Anyhow.... A very light, crisp, bready and earthy aroma defines this pale lager, that is also topped with a very large pillowy white head that hangs around for the whole ride. The color is very pale straw gold, darker than a pilsner, yet lighter than most helles. There is plenty of carbonation and a sparkling "essence." It tastes like most other German lagers, but a considerable amount better. Biscuity malt balances out the herbal, grassy, yeast flavors and the light hop bitterness. This is definitely drinkable and the flavors are soft and mellow enough to keep it refreshing and not metallic. A good helles /pale lager, that just begs to be drunk. Looks very nice in my decorative German stein. This is a very popular and well selling beer where I work (even at $11.49 a six-pack) Many people swear by it and insist that it is "the best German lager." I can’t completely agree with that, but I can see where they’re coming from.

500ml bottle at home. Typical german lager, pretty uneventful indeed. quite unlively hoppy, graasy beer. straw coloured and short lived.

Meiner bescheidenen Meinung nach das beste Export Bier der Welt! Es ist vollmundig, malzig-süß und wohlbekömmlich. Im Abgang kommt Aroma-Hopfen zum tragen. Die Süffigkeit ist grenzenlos.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hopefully I’m reviewing the write brew. This one has a blue/white label. Bought at Ledger’s Liquors, in Berkeley, Ca. Ultra light yellow color. Very frothy tight white head that collapses fairly quickly. Light yeasty aroma. Flavor? Hmm. Not sure what to say. Has a light hop character to it, but its not huge. Refreshing, but nothing extremely memorable about it. Probably wouldn’t go out of my way to buy it again.

Jan. 2007 - Beer poured pale yellow, very little head. Aroma was sweet malt with some grassiness. The flavor followed suit...pretty sweet but with a nice crisp grassy hop bitterness at the end. Not bad.
