ALLOVATE (2912) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 26, 2006
Bottle into it’s own tall flute @ Augustiner Bräu, München, Germany.
I could personally nominate this one for numerous awards because it was, honestly, the finest example of a Deutsch Pilsner I have ever tasted. It poured with excitement, the flurry of well trapped carbonation arousing a magnificent fluffy white crest that stabilised a good 2 inches thick and drabbed a wickedly fine lace down the glass. The body - the part I’m more interested in - a sparkling, dazzling yellow straw. Upon ordering this I appeared quite effeminate in light of our hosts - some Irish backpackers out for a lark - yet by the end we seemed to be quaffing a bottle each on the side of our steins of Vollbier. Aroma is so tight, so clean, and full of fresh cut flowers, finely chopped mint leaves, a heavy dose of fresh cracked pepper and a subtle mineral water edge. Dry, spicy and predominately hoppy palate, so delicate it could go up against the finest sparkling waters. A light showing of pine litters some pale malts that sit comfortably upfront. A sour edge grips, a heavy spice tails and some naughty hops wreak havoc on the swallow. Quite bitter, it draws in a surmountable amount of saliva making each sip need a follow up gulp. It finishes so clean, so bitter and so fresh it could pass as mouth-wash for desperate men needing a bit of Dutch courage - or in this case Deutsch courage. This stuck in my mind as the best, most balanced and most easily quaffable pilsners out there. It is worth a try, I don’t think notes quite describe just how good it is. Cheers!!!

Embrouille (2843) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 24, 2009
Bottled 33cl. Courtesy of joss. It pours a pale yellow beer with a decent white head. Dissapointing aroma of grain, sulphur, soy sauce, grass, mediocre earthy hops and compost. Boiled vegetables in the taste. Low bitterness. Grainy. Some gooseberries, cannabis and wax sneaking in. The flavor is better than the nose. Low bitterness. Actually quite malt accentuated with a hint of lemon. Dryish finish. I didn’t enjoy this Pils. Thanks a lot joss!

malrubius (2614) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - FEB 24, 2009
12 ounce bottle straight from Munich via my mother-in-law in the new funky sam adams glass. Golden with lasting head and lace. Noble hop and grain aroma. Grainy grassy clean flavor with nice hoppy undercurrent ad finish. Nothing spectacular, but well-mathced with my Peking Meat Sauce with Noodles.

Big fluffy head that dissapears rather fast. Very pale color. Really nice pilsner malt aroma with a litle sulphur. Fresh malty taste with some fresh hops and a balanced bitterness.

armando629 (2456) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 24, 2011
0,33 l bottle, Csakajósör
Clear pale straw yellow colored beer with a medium froathy head that melts down slowly to a small lacing one on the surface. Opens with a mild malt, after a second the lively carbonation brings the herbal-grassy hops. Medium bodied beer with a light grainy character at the first slip, after a while the hop arrives with its own dry character and with a clean herbal taste. Bittersweet, also dry finish. Correct pilsner, good!

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - DEC 21, 2010
Probably consumed a couple of these along side drink4satan at Euro Youth. I think I’d take this one over their helles most of the time. Light straw appearance with a fluffy white head. Nice hop aroma with more intensity than I would have thought. Good evergreen, mint, and spicy "noble" character. Just a little bit of sulfer. Light and hoppy in the mouth with more emphasis on hop flavor than bitterness. Just a light grainy malt sweetness. Light body with tight carbonation. Surprising hop character and very nice, almost piney aroma. Why did you have to step down to the 33cl bottle if you wanted this one? I hated that about pils in Munich; same price but less beer than the helles...

Shaney (2423) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - NOV 21, 2012
#423 Pils aus Bayern ist schon etwas ganz Eigenartiges. Dieses Pils ist hopfig-würzig mit eigenwilliger Note. Freunde norddt. Hopfenkeulen können getrost woanders weiter testen, jeder aufgeschlossene Pilstrinker kommt aber nicht umhin dieses Pils zu trinken; nettes von Augustiner! Test vom 21.5.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 11,10,10,11,12,10 - 10,35
