Bottle, thanks Hart. Pours a clear yellowy gold with a large, white head. Aroma is quite grassy and quite strawy with some grain. Taste is much of the same as well. Light, hard carbonation, refreshing. Good.

Beese (1117) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2013
Draft at The Great British Beer Festival 2013. Poured a clear, light golden colour with a dense white head. Aroma of pilsener malt, grass and cornbread. Bready malt flavours with some straw and lemon zest. Some pine like hop resin, dry grain and yeast in the palate. Drinkable, but you could do better from Munich...

THE typical Munich-Lager beer! Golden coloring, white head, aroma of malt with typical sulfur notes. Taste is mostly malty, with hints of hops.

500ml bottle. pours a very clear dark yellow with thin head and lots of bubbles. aroma is of malts and hops. smells a little dough-y too. nice refreshing crisp yeasty taste. as the chap below says, very refreshing and i could easily drink lots of these.

A beer first experienced in Munich in 2010. I quickly heard Augustiner was the local favorite of the big 6 and of course had to try it. Many liters later, it was my favorite as well. This is one of those beers that has nothing truly special about it, other than the fact that it’s perfect. Which is to say, stylistically, it’s "boring" - lager. But I’ll take a beer this perfectly balanced, perfectly drinkable, perfectly honest ANY day over the craziest sours, hoppiest IPAs, and booziest stouts. Best enjoyed in mass form straight from the wooden cask at Augustiner Keller, but this holds up to form even out of the bottle (crate brought back to Belgium from Rothenberg-odT to confirm). This easily makes my top few candidates for "if I could choose one beer to drink for the rest of my life..."

Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Ariel. Pours pale yellow carbonated with a small head, aroma of corn, honey, some cheese, flavor is a bit bitter, grainy, light acidity, pretty refreshing, light bodied

fresh bottle. crystal clear pale gold with a large, frothy white head. clean, a little grassy, peppery spice and honey aroma. flavor blends floral and grassy hops with a lightly sweetened pale malt. carbonation perfection. one the most refreshing beers ever.
