FROTHINGSLOSH (6827) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2016
Sampled on draft at Max’s Allegheny Tavern this beer poured almost black with a large foamy tan head that left good lacing. The aroma was sweet cola with hints of anise and dark fruit. The flavor was malty and a bit woody with notes of cola and dark fruit. Medium length finish. Medium body and smooth. Better than I expected

This was a very pleasant dark beer that was almost like a sweet stout but I don’t think that it is brewed anymore.

12 oz draft at Max’s Allegheny Tavern on the North Side of Pittsburgh. Heavy infusion of molasses and sugars in an attempt to dress up this otherwise average beer. Pours dark with a nice head and a reasonably satisfying finish. This is a first encounter for me with this one and I may be wrong in calling it a premium lager. Untapped calls it a Black Lager, but since the later category did not exist on Rate Beer, I picked the next best appropriate style.

RobertDale (5508) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - AUG 19, 2010
12 oz. bottle. Labled as Augustiner Premium Amber Lager. Pours a nice clear amber with a small white head. Aroma of sweet buttery hops. Tastes somewhat of sweet hops with some caramel. Lots of carbonation. Not bad for the style.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 25, 2010
Bottle- as Premium amber. Pours a clear deep woody dull copper with a thinning fizzy head. Aroma is both too grassy and too buttery, light toast, cardboard ox. Flavor is paper, toast, caramel, grass, earth, light nutty wet oxidized paper and butter. Meh.

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - SEP 10, 2009
Bottle: Crisp clear copper with an off white fading head. Buttery, diacetyl, fruity notes (estery)- yuck. Has a light body with a buttery flavor. Light sweet pale malts and lots of lager fruity notes. Diacetyl ridden and filled with unwanted esters. Pretty bad.

puzzl (3259) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 3, 2009
Bottle. Farmhouse, hay, moss aroma, very soggy, peanut butter. Soggy, filthly, buttery hop flavor. Not many redeeming qualities.

CanIHave4Beers (4024) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAR 23, 2009
Bottle courtesy of CheapDark, labeled Augustiner premium amber lager. Pours very hazy with a nice amber color with a thin white head. The aroma is a little skunky with some roastiness and a little noble hops. Flavor is not bad nice notes of roastiness and a mild hoppiness with a little copper and some caramel. There are some odd vegetable notes but nothing unforgivable.

Labelled Augustiner Premium Amber Lager. Nice pour with a whispering head. Smells of phenol and vegetation. Tastes like a decent malty lager. Pretty light on the palate.
