2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This was a pretty average German helles, although I think it falls more into the dortmunder export category. Still worth a try if you find it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2005 On tap at the mother ship in Munich. Very clean and crisp. This tastes like the Warsteiner that I’m use to in Omaha. Not so special compared to the other Augustiner beers, but delicious in its own right. Light gold in color, white foamy head lingers, rich lager malt flavor. Crisp bitterness. UPDATE (6/7/5): Had this again, but in the bottle at the Huber Haus. Not as fun as being in Munich!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle: Pours light yellow with a thin white head. Nothing really all that special to say about this one. An avg. beer without all that great of taste. Not what I’d expect from augustiner.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Looks a bit thin and pissy. Pours with a tiny, pearly white head which
dissipates almost instantly. Aroma is very sour and sharp - doesn’t
bode well... And, indeedilyfoo, this is another sour and unexciting

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not what I’d expected from Augustiner. Bottle was brought back from Germany for me and I was disappointed. Poured and looked like a nice German Helles, but the aroma was non-descript. Didn’t really have much malt or hops in the taste to speak of. Rather plain beer that I wouldn’t seek out.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Off white medium lasting head. Deep golden color. Aroma is moderately malty with herbal (hoppy) and light cereals notes. Flavor is malty with light hoppy and crispy tones, ending in a moderately sweet, rice tasting finish . Light bodied.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at the Criterion, Leicester. Pale Lager type beer, with smooth lacing. Has a lightness of feel, very sweet flavour - rich and sugary, like a bowl of Frosties. Slightly syruppy finish, some sickly grot sneaks in. Niceish.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very light yellow in color. Light, earthy aroma that follows into the flavor. Barely a hint of citrus. Crisp yet bland. Nothing special here.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Surprisingly malty character for such a clear/yellow beer. Nose is all malt, but some grassy hops at the finish. Malt is both toasty and sweet throughout. I went back for a few more smaples of this, it was quite good.
