3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2015 Tap at the Schranke in Nuremberg. Brilliant gold, clear, tall fine head. Clean, herbal nose, crackers and lemon. Lemony flavor, light biscuits, herbs, grass. Very fresh and clean, but with a solid south German malt background. Not the most flavorful pils I have had lately, but damn good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

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
