3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The classic German Lager aroma, very grainey bready malt and hops,almost like your in a freshly cut hay field in the morning,taste is lively grain malts and spicey noble hops with that fresh bread aftertaste. When you are thirsty ,this is one of the best first sips of any brew you can experience. It does thin out about half way through,but that first half glass is to die for. So far the best bottle,I was able to bring home from Munich

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
1L draft at Augustiner’s 2007 Oktoberfest tent in Munich.
Golden color and sweet malty notes. Impressively dense foamy, snow-white head. Truly a beautiful beer. I may be a touch biased in rating this beer as my first sip was my first sip of beer at Oktoberfest in Munich this year. However, I would go out of my way to get this if it was available in USA. Delicious beer and a fabulous introduction to sampling the finest beers that Munich has to offer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle that is completely different, but this looks right. "Augustinerbrau Mundien" and "Munchner bier edelstoff." Clear golden, fairly large head, some lacing and retention. Aroma is bread, grain, butter, and more hops than usual. Moderate bitterness but otherwise clean. A little more character than some other pale beers, but still not a lot here.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Vanilla-like malt, wood, spruce, a trace of banana fruitiness in the nose. Golden, thinly headed and strikingly clear. Clean, soft, delicately malty lager with a gnaw of grainy pine, nutty malt and a suggestion of lemony/banana-like fruit. Not quite as good as it sounds, but a pretty tasty drop.
