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.

16 oz aluminum bottle is kind of nifty. Pours a golden amber color with just a little bit of a head. Aromas are sweet, of apple juice concentrate and caramel malt. Flavor (surprise!) is slighlty metallic an sweet like the aroma promised. There is a slight medicinal funk to the aftertaste, but after about half a glass it starts to mellow and become somewhat enjoyable. I’m probably not coming back to this any time soon, but not bad. Bottle/can is cooler than the beer.

On-tap at Primanti Brothers in Pittsburgh, PA. Pours an amber color with minimal head. Taste is sweet like fruit with an almost cherry tone with a hint of orange. Mouth feel is standard, but the drinkability factor is low because I felt the flavor tapered off to something less than I would want in any lager. Maybe the line was dirty; maybe the keg was old. Either way, it didn’t impress me.

Rated 3/24/06: Pours a pale copper color with a nicely formed head and steady carbonation. A nice malty aroma is detected, nothing too impressive but pleasant nonetheless. The mouthfeel is a little watery and thin, but the beer has a clean finish. The flavor is good to say the least. Sweet and malty, somewhat standard and plain, but it is definately much better than most commercial lagers. Overall I can say that this was a nice surprise, I found it down in the Ohio Valley on a recent trip for a rather cheap price. Good beer, solid lager.

cheap (4203) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2007
UPDATED: APR 27, 2011 Served at the Pgh Bottleshop Cafe in Bridgeville. This was in a big 16 oz aluminum bottle! Beautiful blue and silver label aesthetics. Date code is 1861. Pour is darker than your typical ubiquitous pale yellow lager, more brownish. No head, just a froth on top. Aroma is slightly sweet. Flavor has a slight tinge of bitterness. Interestingly industrial background qualities in there. Finish is non offensive, quite friendly and lagerlike. THis beer can easily be enjoyed, it lacks any hints of that tough Iron City. There are other economy beers out there that are much cheaper and just as enjoyable. Augustiner lager’s sister beer Old German comes to mind. Overall OK, but the taste leaves something to be desired after the looks of this beer were so darkish.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 28, 2007
Bottle at Gene’s Last Chance in the Strip. Pours clear amber, thin off white head. Aroma is malt and alcohol. Flavor is malt, caramel, tomato. I chugged this, because I didn’t think it was proper etiquette to drain pour at Gene’s.

Bottle: When you hear Augustiner you expect a quality German beer. Not so! WARNING: UPCOMING RANT! By brewing this beer locally, this is just a cheap attempt to increase sales. For all intents and purposes, this beer is just Iron City! In the words of the Who, "We won’t get fooled again!"

Pretty standard cheap beer. Had this one on draft. Pours a brownish color. Not a whole lot of body here but a somewhat smooth taste.

Nothing too special with this Pittsburgh brew... golden amber color, lighter flavor
