3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2010 Live at the Augustiner-Bräustuben in Munich, served in a bottle: pale golden coloured, fluffy, nicely lacing white head; shy traces of grassy hoppiness in the nose, some dough; light bitter-sweet flavour and a light grassy and malty finish; easily drinkable, a bit too light-bodied for a beer of 5,6% ABV !
Re-Rate (bottle sponsored by Joss!) Pale golden, quite stable mid-sized white head; distinctive floral-hoppy aroma, covering some grainy sweetness; distinctive, but mild bitter-sweet flavour; aromatic hoppiness in the short, sweet finish. A fine and pleasant, really Bohemian Pils !
Draught at "Augustiner an der Frauenkirche", Dresden, 06/10: 3D "bohemian" hop profile, very smooth, solid sweet-bitter flavour, not too dry. Very moreish and very, very good!!!!

On tap at the beer hall. Pale gold with big off-white head. Strong hops in the nose, and a dry hoppy taste with some cookie malts. A balanced, excellent beer.

Had this as a draft at the Augustiner Keller in Munich. Pour was pale yellow with a thick off white head that left a lovely lace on the mug. Great hoppy aroma and malt taste with just enough bitter ending. One Great Pils.

Bottled. Clear golden colour. Medium head, which leaves some lace.
Floral hoppy aroma. Hoppy, slighty bitter, honeyish flavour. Ends in a hoppy, bitter finish with a little sweetness in it. A great pilsner. Thanks to joss for this further excellent Augustiner beer.

On tap at the original haus in Munich. Fantastic bier! Crisp and true to style. Good hop character with a delicious after-bite. Bright yellow in color, whit head and a solvency that vanquishes the mustard served mit der weissen sausages.

Blonde colour. Lots of fizz. Minty, slightly spicy aroma. Light body. Flavour shows spicy hop notes and moderate bitterness. Quick rather than dry finish. More northern than Bavarian in style.
