Bottle at Augustiner Bierhalle and Restaurant - Munich. Pours clear yellow with a frothy, white head. Crisp, biscuity malts in the nose, modest cereal. Light sweet flavor with some hay bitterness, faint grass, lemon rind, cereal. Light bodied with average carbonation. Crisp finish with more cereal, mild grassy and floral bitterness. Solid.

bierkoning (9822) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - SEP 23, 2009
Bottle. pale blonde. Only a hint of grass in teh aroma. Soft grassy, almost alcoholic flavor. A light hopbitterness. Not the best beer from this brewery.

madsberg (9634) - Søborg, DENMARK - AUG 1, 2004
Bottled: Yellow coloured. White small head. Very hoppy and flowery aroma. Great. Flavour is floral and hoppy with a malty touch. Very sharp bitterness in the end. Crisp and refreshing pilsener. I really like it.

pivnizub (8576) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 4, 2005
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!!!!

daknole (8537) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 25, 2010
nbutler brought this back from Germany. Crystal clear yellow pour. White head. Clean aroma of hops and crystal malt. Flavor is very clean and very nice. Some nice yeast also.

NielsenRatings (8273) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 2, 2012
Bottle @ Augustiner Bierhalle Munich (the one half way between Karlsplatz and Mariensplatz). Clear yellow appearance with an off white head. Lemon, straw, grassy, floral aroma. Grainy, pils malty, dry grassy flavor. Not real issues but a little boring.

MoritzF (8250) - Bochum, GERMANY - NOV 27, 2005
(bottle at Klosterhof, Niederalteich) Pale golden colour with a foamy white medium head. Floral and herbal hoppy aroma with notes of citrus and wet straw.Light bitter flavour, medium to light bodied, moderate carbonation. Quite balanced Pilsener. Dry herbal hopbitter finish. Aromatic and good.

JorisPPattyn (7716) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 22, 2005
Bright golden beer; just-yellow head, fast gone. Dry, warm summergrain in the nose, followed by a lot of very grassy, herbal notes. Dry, hop-bitterish pils, with a little background reserve of maltsugar. Quite balanced, but not very exciting. Light but not thin. Aftertaste yields good hopbitterness. Decent Pilsner, quite OK & refreshing.

MartinT (7523) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 10, 2011
My Bottom Line :
Grassy, herbal hops float atop crisp straw-like malts in this smashing dry and bubbly Pils.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A sheet of foam clings to the pale yellow.
-Carbonation is much higher than I expected. This almost feels like champagne when sipped right after pouring.
-The finish is particularly dry; I’d like to do a side-by-side with Rothaus Pils...
-The hop character is engaging and is never overtaken by the effervescence; that is a long hop aftertaste for a Pils.
