Shaney (2429) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - NOV 21, 2012
#423 Pils aus Bayern ist schon etwas ganz Eigenartiges. Dieses Pils ist hopfig-würzig mit eigenwilliger Note. Freunde norddt. Hopfenkeulen können getrost woanders weiter testen, jeder aufgeschlossene Pilstrinker kommt aber nicht umhin dieses Pils zu trinken; nettes von Augustiner! Test vom 21.5.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 11,10,10,11,12,10 - 10,35

armando629 (2381) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 24, 2011
0,33 l bottle, Csakajósör
Clear pale straw yellow colored beer with a medium froathy head that melts down slowly to a small lacing one on the surface. Opens with a mild malt, after a second the lively carbonation brings the herbal-grassy hops. Medium bodied beer with a light grainy character at the first slip, after a while the hop arrives with its own dry character and with a clean herbal taste. Bittersweet, also dry finish. Correct pilsner, good!

ALLOVATE (2281) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 26, 2006
Bottle into it’s own tall flute @ Augustiner Bräu, München, Germany.
I could personally nominate this one for numerous awards because it was, honestly, the finest example of a Deutsch Pilsner I have ever tasted. It poured with excitement, the flurry of well trapped carbonation arousing a magnificent fluffy white crest that stabilised a good 2 inches thick and drabbed a wickedly fine lace down the glass. The body - the part I’m more interested in - a sparkling, dazzling yellow straw. Upon ordering this I appeared quite effeminate in light of our hosts - some Irish backpackers out for a lark - yet by the end we seemed to be quaffing a bottle each on the side of our steins of Vollbier. Aroma is so tight, so clean, and full of fresh cut flowers, finely chopped mint leaves, a heavy dose of fresh cracked pepper and a subtle mineral water edge. Dry, spicy and predominately hoppy palate, so delicate it could go up against the finest sparkling waters. A light showing of pine litters some pale malts that sit comfortably upfront. A sour edge grips, a heavy spice tails and some naughty hops wreak havoc on the swallow. Quite bitter, it draws in a surmountable amount of saliva making each sip need a follow up gulp. It finishes so clean, so bitter and so fresh it could pass as mouth-wash for desperate men needing a bit of Dutch courage - or in this case Deutsch courage. This stuck in my mind as the best, most balanced and most easily quaffable pilsners out there. It is worth a try, I don’t think notes quite describe just how good it is. Cheers!!!

Fred82 (2093) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 31, 2010
From bottle at Paulaner brewpub Munich
Appearance : Clear pale yellow with a medium fluffy head.
Aroma : Nice citrusy hops, light piny. Some malt.
Taste : Nice malt, a bit citrusy and piny. Finish herbal and citrusy.
Overall : Very interesting pilsner. Unusually hoppy and citrusy for germany (from my limited experience). I liked it a lot. Maybe because I didn’t had anything hoppy for a while at the time...

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - NOV 19, 2007
La solita pils tedesca? Forse un pochino di più: Augustiner Pils smorza i toni un po’ barocchi di certe brodaglie saponate (Bitburger, sto pensando a te) e ha un aroma fresco e sottile di luppolo che la nobilita. Molto gradevole e anche abbastanza amara.
