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!!!!

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.

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.

Quack-Duck (8921) - 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.

deyholla (8902) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 26, 2009
Bottle. Poured a clear gold with a thin and quickly dissipating white head. Aroma had weak notes of malt and oddly steamed veggies. Flavor was basic with sweet malts and a bit of crisp hops.

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.

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.
