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

RobertDale (3306) - 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 (5077) - 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 (3028) - 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 (3249) - 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 (3142) - 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.

Slipstream (1979) - USA - JAN 8, 2009
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.

Beerman6686 (4170) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2008
Poured a dark brown color with an off white head. Aroma was roasted but bland. Flavor was also dark roasted malts with a strange vineous taste.

cheap (3943) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 3, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2007 This bottle is older, from the original Pgh Brewing. Quite surprizing 12 oz brown bottle with a twist off cap. Unfiltered, causes a swirling effect when you pour because of the gunk on the bottom of the bottle. I never would have thunk that Pgh Brewing would have made an unfiltered beer. Very dark, stoutish appearance. Roasty aroma, attractive olfactory. Initial taste is that of a slight vinegar and porter. A positive impression considering the original augustiner did not really turmn my head. Roasty, mild burned wood flavors. Decent carbonation. Finish lacks any bitter or alky linger. Very good example of a dark friendly beer. Should have tried this sooner. I hope the new owners will keep the recipe the same. Would buy again, nice bargain considering the price.

dpjuart (1049) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 13, 2007
Bottle. Dark brown to black with cream head, quickly disapating. Sweet malt nose. Watery malt taste with hints of roast and licorice, a bit of chocolate. Crisp at the end, but not overly hoppy. Not bad. Average, but drinkable.
