COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Augustiner (pronounced August-teen-er) Lager is a smooth amber lager that has no aftertaste. Due to the fact that it is suprisingly light, you can enjoy Augustiner all night long and not get filled up. Since its release in 1999, the reaction to Augustiner has been exceptional, allowing us to offer Augustiner in the 30-pack. If you are seeking a great tasting lager style beer, then Augustiner Amber Lager is the choice for you.

Thanks to my good beer buddy Big D., for this one (actually 6 of them). The brewery recently moved from their longtime Lawrenceville home to Latrobe (the old Rolling Rock Brewing). I was told by several people that the beer taste different. After trying a few bottles, I have to admit the beer has a crisper, cleaner taste to it. I was told that the recipe hasnít changed. The beerís original recipe was to copy Yuengling Larger was it was in its height of popularity. Augustiner doesnít leave the aftertaste in the beer. Itís worth the try!

Lightly carbonated honeyed brass color with a thin, viscous head. Soft grain nose, whiffs of honey malt, and feint crisp hopping. I am pleasantly surprised at this one. For the low ABV% and considering the style, this packs a fine amount of flavor. Honey malted, crisp grain finish with just enough balancing hops. Thoroughly well-balanced and sessionable. Ranks very highly on the shortlist of top amber lager. Perhaps the poorer sister to Yuengling lager. The sum is more than the parts. An enjoyable lager.

Bottle. Clear, amber body with thin white head that rapidly diminishes. Notes of caramel, toasted grain, grass and nuts in the aroma along with hints of corn, canned vegetables and sulphur. The flavor is lightly sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Light to medium body, thin, watery texture and soft carbonation. Just short of drainpour, the vegetable notes in the aroma and taste, though slight, were enough to overshadow some of the better qualities ó like the caramel and toast in the aroma.

bought a six pack of mixed domestic beers. I drank this one immediately after drinking Bud Select (not a fan) and I was so happy to be drinking this. A- typical golden lager color with a white head that fades. S- nothing special. hard to detect. malt. T- highly unoffensive. clean finish. O- this is pretty drinkable. I wasnít craving another when I was done but I would drink it again. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 04-12-2007 23:52:45

Bought because it was $4.99 for a six-pack of bottles at a corner shop in Burlington, VT. Not terrible, kind of salty malt-ness to the flavor and almost no head-retenetion (as with most "cheap" lagers). Overall, itís a good beer to have after youíve had too many to appreciate good beer.

I am highly impressed with this pale lager. definitely head and shoulders above itís style. Good pour, there is a little sweet and in general it just out performs others in itís style.

Nice amber color with a thin white head. Sweet caramel taste that’s not too bitter. Much better than your everyday light beers.
