Big offwhite lasting head. Yellow body with lazy carbonation. Sweetish-acidic fruity apple malt aroma with peppery hop notes. Dry-sweet very clean apple and malts taste with straw and pepper notes. Light, mild mouthfeel. Dry mealy apple and pepper aftertaste. Impressive! (0.25l draft at Augustiner Großgaststätte, München.)

Poured a clear yellow gold, white head that quickly faded. Dry, clean hop aroma. Refreshing and crisp taste, hops and malt with a slightly metallc finish. A little bitter and sour in the aftertaste. Tasty crisp helles.

[part of the Munich Bender, 2008] Very pale yellow color. Hoppy aroma, malty. Very clean malt and "grainy" taste. Finishes with a strong herbal bitterness.

Hay and flowers in the nose. Pale, bubbly, minimal American pale lager look. Palate is thin, buttery, German hops, metallic. Not too great.

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.
