2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled from a 330ml bottle at Brauereigasthof Weissbräu in Deisenhofen. Pale yellow, in fact with a greenish touch to the body colour. Some lasting white head. Moderate aroma of flowers and fruits. Flavour of fresh hops with a rounded bitter finish. Very refreshing. Yet another delicious German pilsener (17.06.2007).

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2008 Bottle, Augustiner Großgaststatte, Munich. Pale, pillowy and spritzy. Amazing fresh woodsy/Belgian-like aroma, gaseous and hoppy. Lemony grassy hop, pale biscuity/peanutty malt, medium bitterness restrained for a German pils. Fresh, woodsy, malty lager with an appetising tang of hop back-up. Looks like a Radler. Can’t pinpoint the Belgianess, but it’s in there. Pure, undiluted quality.

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.

rbesg08 grand tasting, bottled. i was quite surprised that i had not rated this before but perhaps it was not available at the augustiner place in munich when i was there. anyways, typically bavarian pils - pale yellow, clean grassy aroma, quick in the mouth though not particularly bitter

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Huge very white lasting head. Yellow body with light carbonation. Malty grassy aroma with floral notes. Dry-sweetish fruity golden grassy taste with malty straw notes. Clean, fresh palate. Soft, mild mouthfeel. Dry mealy grassy aftertaste. Very nice. Not very complex, but highly drinkable. (0.3l draft, Augustiner an der Frauenkirche, Dresden.)

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ the brauhaus in Munich. Pale yellow gold, foamy towering head displaying excellent retention. Aroma has nice grassy herbal hop character but unfortunately is marred by sulfurous eggy notes. I’m guessing dirty lines. palate is crisp straw malts with assertive herbaceous green hop character and drying bitterness. Tasty.
