Of all the beers I have ever tasted, this one is hands down the finest. I only wish it were available in California.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2011 Per me è la miglior lager al mondo. E’ perfetta, non ha difetti. E’ bilanciatissima tra malto e luppolo, è gustosa ma leggera e dissetante. La miglior birra dell’Augustiner, un birrificio, secondo il mio punto di vista, che non ha mai sbagliato un colpo.

UPDATED: FEB 27, 2013 Just THE Lager Beer. An example of the old munich tradition in beer brewery, with Augustiner being the oldest one. You see it, with it’s golden color with the lively carbonation and the white foam. You smell it, clearly a smooth beer aroma, a bit sweet from the malt, a bit harsh from the hops. You taste it, best balance with malt and hops, like you guessed from the start and even better, from the first sip to the last, even after a few beers - but then you will feel that’s a bit stronger with it’s alcohol. A bit stronger for Lager, but for an Export normal with it’s 5,6% alc. and yet so easy and lovely to drink. Could never get enough of it. If you find it somewhere out of Munich, take one, you’ll find it hard ’cause they’re not maximaze any further the production to have always the best quality and so it get’s very rare outside of it’s brewery place. I did read the rules of reviewing and "an all 5" can be just rare and it can’t improve anymore, so for me, it’s a five. In my opinion, it’s what it says: an Export (german) Lager beer called "Edelstoff" (noble material). Prost.

Not necessarily typical of it’s type, it’s non the less got the colour, fizz, and the head of a pilsner. But with that tangy citrus finish it’s a knockout. My favourite lager.

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2011 I can’t rate this beer highly enough - it is one of my absolute favourites - it leaves no aftertaste, it’s not fizzy, it looks inviting and a 500 ml bottle is just so pleasurable. There are so many excellent beers available - this can be classed as one

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.

Slightly sweeter than standard Munchener Helles. Served alongside the Festbier in the Augustiner tents, but available year-round.
