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.

Pours a brownish golden amber with a small off white head that went away quickly. Lightly sweet, grainy, malt aroma. Flavor is on the lighter side as well. Really just kind of a bland malty thing going on with a small hint of dry hops in the tail. Very much like Yuengling Lager, no reason this one couldnít be just as popular. If you like this kind of malty pale lager, go for it.

Nate (3727) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 27, 2006
Draught at Primanti Bros., Harmarville. Weak aroma, very little malt or hops. Mild Bohemian lager aroma, but subdued. Medium dark amber clear with no head. Just a wispy ring of off-white foam on the periphery. Medium light watery body with medium-heavy carbonation. Starts with medium beany malt sweetness. Bohemian-style lager with a bit too much of sugary malts, like theyíre shooting for a malt liquor. Light acidity and carbonic tang. Mild hops but not particularly fruity or floral. Just gives a bitter kick and dry after.

Ok. So, this was not a very impressive beer either, even though itís in the 83rd percentile of Pale Lagers. Iím on the verge of giving up on this style altogether. Itís everywhere though! Itís ubiquitous-- to use an SAT word. I canít escape the tractor beam of the pale lager in the united states. So many people in this country have only ever tasted pale lager with the occasional "premium" lager. Itís sad. :( That was a frowny face to signify sadness. Augustiner lager makes me sad.

rudolf (2341) - Buffalo, New York, USA - OCT 12, 2005
Very light nose - some maple/plumish notes and maybe a little butter. Reddish gold body with an extremely thin head. Some rich plummy malt but not bock-like. Cloyingly sweet with a fruity maple finish. Too damn sweet.

r464 (1928) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 27, 2004
Medium yellow color, white head, faint and skunky aroma. Watery and light lager taste, this does not distinguish itself from any of the American macro lagers.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - OCT 4, 2004
AMber body, weak white head. Aroma was faintly earthy but completely unappealing. Weak and watery. Flavor was in the worst of BMC tradition.

roder60 (1284) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2007 gold color with nice amount of bubbles and medium white head. Flavor has decent body to it, sweet and grassy. Aroma is light sweet and grassy as well. Overall, nice lager.

jaymobrown (1665) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 25, 2004
Citrus, rye nose. Rye, mildly hoppy, burlap sack. Dry. Not quite that good.

JoeM500 (1905) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - AUG 24, 2004
Clear copper with thin white head. tastes of unclean and hard water. Sweet in the middle but papery all over. Very slight malt presence and absolutely no hops to speak of. To be fair, this is probably not the freshest sample.

dirtymike (2016) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 14, 2004
Deep golden in color, a medium white head with small tight bubbles. Mild toasted malt aroma. Sweet malt flavor with a full malt body.
