UPDATED: JUN 10, 2012 Bottle picked up from Dodgy Deli’ Cowley Road, Oxford Sept 1st 2007 Poured very pale gold more straw like, good clarity. crispy malty refreshing brew, tastes like it’s leaning towards a pilsner to me but hey what do I know, very good. Had this again, but this time at the Augustiner Keller, Munchen, Germany 24-01-08 A light golden beer with majestic white head some sweet light malts and grain. Initially quite refreshing with a slight crisp bitterness from the hops but sweetness always evident. Served from a large wooden cask (just put on) quite bizarrely given the same rating as from the bottle A6 A4 A6 P3 Ov14 3.3 Had this again On tap at Gastahus zur Schranne, Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria, Germany 28th May 2012 Pours warm gold with a frothy white head, good clarity. Nice Spezial beer, good fullness of flavour, very soft in the mouth, some residual sweetness and a little cereal but a nice lager. This place seemed a shrine to wood, the tables, chairs, walls, doors, floors, ceilings, just about everything, and as I mentioned in my rating of the establishment there was just about the tallest tree trunk that I have ever seen out the front of this place, standing like a huge maypole it was immense. Nice bar, but very, very quiet when we visited. A6 A5 A7 P3 Ov13 3.4

355 mL bottle that looks nothing like the one pictured. Pale yellow-gold with a very small but sticky head. Smells like a pilsener. Tastes like one as well - perhaps sweeter/maltier. Hops at the end. Clean and crisp. Quite drinkable.

ANOTHER retro, tasted the same time as the lagerbier hell, but reckoned to be not quite as good, still a quality brew I seem to remember.

Bottle. Pours out golden yellow with big white head. Aroma has some sweetness and malty. Malty taste make this a very smooth drink. Great finish, very clean. I have also had this at the Augustiner Brauhaus in Munich and really think this is the cream of german beers. There is nothing extreme about this beer, just good tasting easy drinking beer. Be careful, these can go down wayyyyy too easy.
