crossovert (9072) - Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2011
A nice pils, it is a light and fluffy and a pale gold but packs a tasty hop profile, but it isn’t anything out of the ordinary.

shrubber85 (8836) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 24, 2010
Tap at Augustiner beer gardens. Creamy barley malt and light grass hops aroma. Clear golden yellow color with moderate head. Slightly sweet creamy malt and moderate grass hops flavor. Nice body. Excellent - everything I expect and like in a CGP.

MoritzF (8676) - 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.

MartinT (8492) - 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.

Quack-Duck (8433) - Down South, GERMANY - APR 10, 2009
bottle, bought at a Getränkemarkt in Wolnzach. Clear golden yellow, small white head. Hoppy nose. Full-bodied, malty background with bitter and aromatic hops. Flavourwise a typical Bavarian Pils, although it is unusually strong.

rosenbergh (8411) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 3, 2012
Draught at the Augustiner an der Frauenkirche, Dresden, Germany.
Pale golden colour with small white head. Nice hoppy aroma combined with maltiness. Flavour is also nice balanced combination of hops and malt. Hoppy bitterness and malty sweetness. Very nice but slightly thin.

JorisPPattyn (8389) - Ursel, 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.

DSG (8324) - Tel Aviv, - AUG 9, 2008
(6/29/08) Bottle sample at RBESG08 grand tasting in Plzen. Clear yellow-golden color. Aroma of some malt and OK hoppiness. Sweetish flavor with hints of grains and a bitter hoppy finish with light grassiness. Medium-bodied. 5/2/6/3/11=2.7
(7/5/08) Bottle at Augustiner Keller in Munich. Clear golden with a medium white head. Aroma of some grainy malt and some grassy hops. Sweetish flavor, a bit grainy at first, continues with pleasant hoppy bitterness. Medium-bodied. A decent Pils. 6/3/7/3/13=3.2

Fin (8257) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2013
Had this at Augustiner am Gendarmenmarkt, Mitte, Berlin, Germany Friday 15th November 2013 Absolutely stunningly crystal golden with a perfect white head, if was giving mark out 10 for looks this would get 11. This nose is subtle as is the taste. It is clean tasting with little barbs of bitterness but really refreshing, I really glugged at this, this is a moreish beer. Quite delicate at times, the hops show as does the malt but it is so well done, beer of the day. A8 A5 T8 P4 Ov16 4.1
