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!

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.

Crisp hoppy nose, clean, with nice malts. Pale yellow clear with white foamy lacing head. Light-medium body with active carbonation. Starts with nice acidity, hoppy, light malts. Good bitter finish, followed by bittr after. A decent pilsener.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - MAR 15, 2005
Bottled. Clear golden colour. Medium head, which leaves some lace. Floral hoppy aroma. Hoppy, slighty bitter, honeyish flavour. Ends in a hoppy, bitter finish with a little sweetness in it. A great pilsner. Thanks to joss for this further excellent Augustiner beer.

DanielBrown (4208) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2006
On tap at Augustiner keller, Munich. Good, solid Lager. Fresh, with a little malt and spritzy bitterness. Eminently sinkable - too much so.

malrubius (2239) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - FEB 24, 2009
12 ounce bottle straight from Munich via my mother-in-law in the new funky sam adams glass. Golden with lasting head and lace. Noble hop and grain aroma. Grainy grassy clean flavor with nice hoppy undercurrent ad finish. Nothing spectacular, but well-mathced with my Peking Meat Sauce with Noodles.
