Bottle at Augustiner Beirhall munchen 23/1/14 Aroma is nice floral, lemon rind citrus and pils grains. Crystal clear yellow colour with a lasting white head. Aroma is a slight whff of parmessan cheese. Flavour is clean lemon with some grassy hop. Very drinkable.

Had this as a draft at the Augustiner Keller in Munich. Pour was pale yellow with a thick off white head that left a lovely lace on the mug. Great hoppy aroma and malt taste with just enough bitter ending. One Great Pils.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 22, 2007
Light yellow colored, medium sized white head. Strongly hopped and floral pils aroma, reminds me of some Swedish pilsners, I mean these good ones. Medium bodied. Flavor is also excellent with this same floral-yeasty sweetness, which is cut strongly by bitter hops. Hops last in aftertaste with lemon. Again I have to say, Augustiner is one of my favourite breweries.

Bottle, bought @ Ambrosetti, Berlin.
Pours pale, clear golden with a fine, frothy, white head. Good lacings. Nice hoppy aroma. Light hay and grass, some pine and good, bready malts. Medium carbonation, fine mouthfeel. Very clean flavour, no citric notes. Instead there is good hops, very grassy and a fine, elegant malty balance. A very good pilsner.

Fred82 (2115) - 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...

Consumed at some hostel nearby the Augustiner gardens in München. The pour is, well, what you would expect from a well-made, highly refined pilsener bier. A quickly fading head and a brilliant straw coloured body, akin to a budwieser, honestly, but in a beer tasting this fresh, this appearance is more than acceptable. It´s prefered. The nose is a little muted, but poured in its appropriate glass what wouldn´t be?! When are people going to wise up and just pour everything in snifters or tulips or bordeau glasses? Anywho, the characteristic awesomeness actually comes from a very low concentration of what seems to be DMS. It´s like thier house character. Aside from that, is grainy, with slightly zesty noble hop character. Appropriately prickly carbonation is matched with a thin, dry, slightly slick mouthfeel. Basically, the only reason I´m rating this is to pass time until they bleed thier glorious Helles out of a wood barrel. Righteous!

MMR (295) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 19, 2011
Pours a nice golden color. Somewhat grassy and hoppy with a nice malt taste to it. A great refresher although the Bayern locals told me the Augustiner Edelstoff is seen as a better version of this one. Good beer.

Impavidus (63) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 7, 2013
Clear golden yellow color with moderate head. Slightly sweet creamy malt and moderate grass hops flavor. Nice body. You stick your nose into the glas you will be overwhelmed by a motherload of flowery aromahops. The hops are there in the taste too, nicely balanced with a medium bodyed aroma. The finish is particularly dry, grassy, herbal atop crisp straw-like malts. Carbonation is much higher than I expected, this smashing dry and bubbly Pils.
